Quote of the Day

"Piracy these days on PC is probably less problematic than second-hand sales on the Xbox," says lead Fable III combat designer Mike West. "I've been working on PC games for many years and piracy is always a problem. There are a lot of honest people out there as well, and if they like your game they'll buy it." Thanks joao.

I have bought a lot of used games in my time, (back when used PC games racks actually existed), and I feel pretty guilty about it. The wrong people got rewarded, and the people who made the effort to make a good game got nothing. To me that is pretty crap. Especially considering that many of the companies whose games I didn't buy new are now out of business. I don't know how, if you love gaming, you can be proud to buy games used when the creator is not rewarded. Ken Levine once said in the dearly departed "Computer Games Magazine" that he preferred people would just pirate games outright instead of buying them used. The pirate at least still has the money to make a potential future purchase that will help the industry. The same can't be said for the used games buyer.

That said, I've always been of the opinion that the easiest way to curb used game sales is to make a game that is worth keeping even after playing through it. I never sell games anyway - I'm a collector, as well as a believer in rewarding those responsible for keeping my hobby alive.
