Brumbek trying his best to justify what he intended to do from the beginning... Obvious.
Brumbek orders a pizza. The pizza is not okay, so he asks for a refund. Problem solved.
Brumbek buys a game from Steam. The game is not okay. so he asks for a refund. Problem solved.
But Brumbek says Nooooo, not good enough. I need to eat at least half of the pizza, ahm, play hours of the game.
Dear reader, judge for yourself.
There is actually one reason I can accept to pirate the game: if the game is not at all or only in a censored version available to you and cannot be gifted or in any other way activated by you. Which means: the idiots don't want to sell the game to you but to mostly everybody else. Then a pirated copy seems to be the only way you can play the game you would otherwise pay for.
A pizza game is a physical item, a digital game is not. Given the problems with quality, QA, hardware, etc. it's not an unwarranted complaint.
I was gonna say "A game is not a pizza," especially when you factor in the restrictions of Steam/Origin/Uplay etc. making it impossible for you to resell a game after you've bought it. But seriously, can you really own a pizza? Then I said to myself "Mmmmm pizza." And I ate some. Yummy.
