You want a game but the company that makes it is greedy and has disc locked content/a lot of overpriced dlc/ignores fans. Do you buy the game used in this situation?

I buy my games NEW for the series and producers I REALLY care about. And I buy my games USED when it's something I'm not too keen on buying initially or I just want to get it for cheap. I dont buy out of 'spite' for any reason.

...You people do realize used games do NOT hurt a single damn thing, right?

I usually buy used just because it's cheaper, though if I can't find a used copy with the original cover and manual and everything I might buy new. The company usually doesn't even cross my mind.

My friend is actually boycotting Capcom, though, for the reasons you stated, and I can understand that. Capcom seems to have some kind of blood feud with their fans.

I voted No because I don't, but I could see why someone would buy a used version of one of EA's games. You aren't hurting anything but you aren't boosting sales.

Nonsense. Name me a single video game company that is a registered charity. Money is all.
