Alright so, pirating, sure whatever.
However, if you like the game, it would be better to buy it, to show your compassion and love for the game to the developers. If it's shit, well, atleast you've tried it, and didn't waste your money on a game that you didn't like. That's the gold about pirating.
User avatar #32 - Nazistick (06/23/2014) [-]
Pay for the game...That way, They might make another Elderscrolls and forget about ESO.

then why buy it on sale? waiting to buy a game on sale just retarded pirate it, then buy it if you want to donate
User avatar #35 - Nazistick (06/23/2014) [-]
But Pirating is Stealing! If you must Pirate, Pirate games that no one cares about. That Developers let slowly die as they sit on their hands, Not wanting to give up the IP. Games like Skyrim Deserve every ounce of praise and money we can give them. If I could buy Skyrim again, I would. Pirate Only when it is Impossible to get a game in any other way, Like if you live in a country that Bans video games, Or a game becomes So rare that buying a copy costs over Hundreds of dollars.
User avatar #67 - tsoper (06/23/2014) [-]
pirating is sharing....

stealing would be going to the store and taking a physical copy of the game without paying
User avatar #68 - Nazistick (06/23/2014) [-]
But what about the people who made the game? With every pirated copy, Those people who spent Years of hard work making a game have families to upkeep. Lives to live. If you pirate a brand new game, You are taking money from those developers. And before people go on about people Pirating games because they have a beef with EA Games or something like that, Those arguments are made invalid once you pirate that game, because even if you Hate the Developer or something like that, The game Clearly is still worth the trouble of pirating it.
User avatar #177 - rikovic (06/23/2014) [-]
I pirate games that are banned in my country and so far I've only pirated 2
User avatar #70 - tsoper (06/23/2014) [-]
developers already got their pay when they were producing it.
its the sellers who are profiting from it, even after 3 years later.

me personally, i dont consider intellectual property to be worth a dime. do you think we should pay in order to browse funnyjunk? then why do you think i should pay to listen to music, watch a movie, or play a game?

yea someone worked hard to make it, they get money from people like you... more than enough money. especially actors, do you know much how they get paid? we are speaking in millions. movies make around 300 million in the box office from people going to the movie theaters. I personally dont because im introverted so i prefer watching it at home.

then again, i wouldnt have payed for the game either way... i would just do something else like browse funnyjunk. Yes i pirated skyrim the day before it even came out, and i enjoyed it, but after a week, it got old. Was i going to buy it? Nope, i wasnt even sure if my computer could have ran it.

Only game i payed for was WoW, and that shit is over prized as fuck. But its multiplayer, i cant bypass that. Just imagine if skyrim was multiplayer, id probably pay for it. Especially if it was a 1 time pay and not monthly.
#82 - professorbob (06/23/2014) [-]
Normally when people accuse others of a strawman argument, they're just trying to sound intellectual, but holy fuck you could have written the whole damn book on it.
User avatar #84 - tsoper (06/23/2014) [-]
but i wont stop pirating, so what did this achieve? i just explained to him why i do it.
User avatar #87 - professorbob (06/23/2014) [-]
No, you didn't. You made the illusion that you explained why you do it, but all you did was blow the argument out of proportion and make your action seem justifiable.

I don't give a fuck what you were arguing about or who is in the right, but your argument explains nothing about the topic at hand. Just thought I should mention it.
#89 - professorbob (06/23/2014) [-]
Oh, and don't forget your complimentary thumbs-up.
User avatar #74 - Nazistick (06/23/2014) [-]
Since you didint buy it, It meant nothing to you. You did not invest anything to get Skyrim. You just got it and Boom, Lost interest in it very quickly. Why? Because you made it worthless. Lets say that if a Car you had was free. You would not care in the slightest if someone stole your car, because you got it for free, and you can just as easily get another. When something actually Costs something, Its more meaningful. A game like Skyrim does not Need multiplayer to be good. Multiplayer is now just a tacked on thing to help sell games, But Skyrim is Far more deserving of money by itself than it would with Multiplayer.

Skyrim is one of the Best games ever made, Far more than you might give it credit for. The people who made the game Deserve that money, Regardless how much they already made. Getting that game for free, and other games like it for free cheapens the entire experience. Pirate only when you Need to. Pirate a game thats sitting in the darkness, awaiting its time in the spotlight that will never come again. A game so rare that it passed out of all knowledge. A Game that some companies sit on without letting the IP go, letting it fester and rot. Get games that SHOULD be Pirated...Dont Pirate a game just to save a buck.
User avatar #85 - tsoper (06/23/2014) [-]
and you would not want a free car?
User avatar #133 - Nazistick (06/23/2014) [-]
Everyone would like a Free car...But no one would appreciate it as much. Let's have a little experiment.

There are two kids. Both kids want a brand new toy. One kid automatically gets the toy, while the other has to do jobs around the neighborhood.

The first kid gets his toy long before the 2nd kid, however, he quickly becomes bored with it. Suddenly there is a brand new toy, and that first toy gets thrown aside like garbage, as the kid begs, and cries for the new toy.

The other kid, however is working hard. Every day he works, he has his single goal. That toy. He works hard for that toy. He helps one guy paint his house, He helps another guy mow his lawn, He works for that toy. That toy is in the Horizon just begging him "Just work a little bit harder. Come on! You are almost there!" And after working hard for this toy, He finally gets the money to buy it, and he invested so much to get this toy, That it means More to him than just a hunk of plastic. Its the object that he sweated and bled for. Its his Goal fulfilled. He cherishes that toy as if it was his own flesh and blood, because in the end, He poured enough blood, tears and sweat to do so.

User avatar #219 - tsoper (06/24/2014) [-]
I still fail to see how that is anyway more helpful...

id rather be the first kid who gets a toy without any work
User avatar #227 - Nazistick (06/24/2014) [-]
Then clearly you do not understand what it means to work hard and strive for something.

User avatar #95 - assassindash (06/23/2014) [-]
You know, I would care about supporting them, if, you know, the game wasn't bought by over a MILLION FUCKING PEOPLE FOR 40$ ALREADY!!

They already got all the support they need, if they decided to make Skyrim free now at this point, it wouldn't even affect them cause they have mostly already MADE their FUCKING PROFIT!

However, the support from the devs and mods are nice.

Point is, no skin off their back anymore if people choose to pirate now.
#170 - theruse (06/23/2014) [-]
You got rekt, son.
#100 - yuukoku (06/23/2014) [-]
>They already have enough money!

Let me tell you why you're a douche bag who doesn't understand shit about business.

Socialists suck, so a large sum of that money they earn goes into taxes. Then, you have to pay all the employees. I mean testers, devs, the soundtrack composer, the advertisers, the workers in China who made all of the physical disks and shit, the fucking janitor, etc. On top of that, you need to pay royalties to every source that . On top of that, all of that money doesn't even go to the devs. In all probability, the producers are seeing a lot more of that money than the devs are even though they're the ones who made the game.

Look, I understand downloading a ten-year-old Gamy Boy Advance game that isn't in production anymore. That can't hurt the people who made it because there's no way you can actually buy it anymore, but don't go pirating games because you think they have too much money.

Every fucking penny counts. I don't care how much you can get the game for nowadays, just buy unless it's from a third-party (buying pre-owned games). Seriously, you're either breaking a law that isn't really enforced well and is more of a moral choice, or you're putting food on someone's table.
User avatar #213 - assassindash (06/23/2014) [-]
so you're telling me that them losing maybe 10K dollars with from pirating has an affect?

Oh wait, based on your explanation IT STILL DOESN'T MAKE A FUCKING DIFFERENCE!
User avatar #216 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
YEAH! YEAH, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I'M FUCKING TALKING ABOUT!

10 thousand dollars can be the difference between some guy being able to send his son to college, you fucking jerk. And it's not just ten thousand; try ten million. It's people like you that make the world suck ass.
User avatar #221 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
"It's people like you that make the world suck ass."

You are a pessimist, by the way.
User avatar #222 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
I'm a pessimist and you're stealing from people and the playing it down by saying that they have enough money and that everyone else does it.

You don't steal from a Wal-Mart, do you?
User avatar #226 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
I'm saying almost nobody does it you dip.
(I actually have stolen from Wal-mart, but I was really young at the time, like 8.... That damn beef jerky and lays potato chips was delicious.)
#229 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
I don't care if you're the only one in the world doing it. It's wrong on all levels.
Oh. Well, that just goes to prove something, doesn't it?
User avatar #232 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
It's not wrong at all, nobody starves, nobody dies, i'm not stealing an antidote to a cure, nor am I stealing shit tons of livestock or land. It would be wrong if my stealing had a serious affect, but it just.... Doesn't.
User avatar #234 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
You're stealing in general. When you start justifying the small things, what is there to stop you from justifying the big things?
User avatar #235 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
Well there's basic morals, the EFFECTIVE laws, and the fact we're not animals. By the latter I mean we have empathy.
User avatar #238 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
So, you don't empathize with someone who's selling games online, but you can empathize with someone who's selling games in a store? I mean, that makes sense if you factor in human interaction, but stealing a game from either guy is wrong on the exact same level. How does stealing from someone online make you any more morally superior than someone stealing from a man running a store.
User avatar #240 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
Basic morals stop you from murder, and laws stop you from stealing from stores. I never said stealing from a store was worse than pirating. They're honestly about the same, the only difference being store employees can get fired.
#218 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
There is not 10 million people pirating, there is only about 10 thousand (1000 per franchise) unlike you I have more knowledge on the pirating populace. And if you're talking about money not people, 1000 X 40 is about four hundred thousand dollars. and with the way you say prices are being cut, then that 400 thousand thousand is split into 500-1000$ for the bottom of the chain, which is a fucking week's savings. Two weeks tops.

Seriously, instead of being a pessimist and assuming people are actually losing an assload of money, go ahead and check the fucking pirating sites and check the download count. GIVE ME NUMBERS DAMMIT!

User avatar #223 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
Who cares how many people are doing it! That's irrelevant! That's like saying "Oh, I'm gonna rape this woman because there's a riot going on and everyone's looting and raping."
User avatar #224 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
No, it is relevant.
1) the amount of people doing it tells how much it actually effects people
2) It's nowhere NEAR as bad as rape, and you should feel ashamed for comparing.
3) NUMBERS DAMMIT!
User avatar #228 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
I'm seriously wondering how you can run justifying thievery through your head. You aren't fucking robbin hood, alright? You're a regular guy who's leeching off of other people's work. How can you seriously justify that? I really want to know how this is playing out in your head.
User avatar #231 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
Basically it plays like this, "If you 50$ from 10000$, nobody is going to notice a severe change in what they can and can't do."

Plus, theft is kind of human-like to begin with, hell, most of the nations of today were built on stealing of some kind or another.
User avatar #233 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
I repeat: Stealing on any level is wrong.

I don't care how minuscule it is, it's wrong. Saying that they'll never notice is like saying that if nobody ever finds the body, it's not murder.
User avatar #236 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
Quit comparing theft to rape and murder, it's nowhere near as morally terrible. I guarantee you a murderer or a rapist would affect the people around them a lot more than a thief. We have fucking GAMES where the main point is to steal. In the games we kill people, most games have a consequence for being a sadistic murderer. We're not even willing to input rape into our games.

Don't compare the three, thief is nothing compared to rape or murder.
User avatar #237 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
They're all morally wrong. That's the comparison. Yeah, stealing a game isn't as bad as murder, but it's still morally wrong. I was making an analogy.
Why are we even going on this long about it? I'm not going to stop you from pirating anything, so don't try to prove anything to me. You're not gonna change my beliefs on the matter and there isn't even anybody watching this thread anymore. Why do you care so much about trying to justify pirating?
User avatar #239 - assassindash (06/24/2014) [-]
The same reason you're still going. I have to be right and I have to have the last word.
User avatar #241 - yuukoku (06/24/2014) [-]
So, it doesn't really matter what we say at this point, just in hopes that one of us gets the last word...

Oh, and rape is always bad and has high affect on people.

Pirating is something that CAN be bad and CAN affect people, but only when the numbers are extremely high, which they tend not to be.

So your saying feminist fear mongering, hate rousing and violent rhetoric about "rape culture" and "Patriarchal oppression of women" and how the government needs to enact in the unconstitutional draconian and sexist laws the feminist lobby has come up with immediately to protect women and children from men.
