I just don't know who to trust anymore!
Are those dang dirty pirates ruining life and taking away diamond-encrusted swimming pools from executives?!
Or does piracy give players a way to test game releases before buying, which also lets players decide on the quality, which means players will actually buy more of the good games?!
Do I side with the dirty pirates or the evil corporate overlords!?
Brumbek - there are exactly how many gameplay/let's play videos out there per game? Enough to check the quality of the game? I'd say so. In addition, there are boards like this one and plenty of others (like over at the steam - the boards are FREE) to check out the players' opinions. And the "But... but... maybe it won't run on my machine" reason has gone with the return policies over at Steam and Origin PLUS again, the videos and boards all over the web. No, pirates are no longer needed, BUT I still prefer GOG for the hassle free (mostly) no DRM games. Games for Windows Live (Rot In Hell!), Rockstar Social Club, and so on IN ADDITION to the already present DRM like Steam, UPlay, Origin, are a real pain in the ass.
