If so, what reason? No money? Bad title? Shady publisher?

The only justification I can give is to "Test" a game that doesn't have a Demo or lacks a demo that is properly representative of the game. And, this only applies to the PC market, where a game can simply not work on your system for a slew of various reasons.

And before people jump my s***: I'm saying this is one possible justification, not that it somehow makes it "OK" to go out and pirate everything you see just to say you're "Testing" it.

It's not like the pirate stole a physical copy that took manpower to make.

Too old that even if you find it to buy, you know none of the money is going to the devs or publisher
