Why would you...all you need is the DLC stuff, which is like in a total of 7 or 8 files. Big files, but just several files. If you're going to go the cdkeys route, why not just hop on TPB and get the dlcs for the base game? It's the same fucking thing. As far as I'm aware, they didn't change anything in the GOTY edition from the base+dlc.

Because he's not a pirate..? Far Harbor is great and easily the best thing BGS has made in years. It's easily worth $15. Nuka-World was alright and worth about $5-7. The rest was just filler, though Automatron did let you make some pretty overpowered companions.

But he still got his key from cdkeys? I get it's not like going to G2A or Kinguin but it's close enough. I mean, my thinking was if you're going to do that (ie. you don't have a moral affliction from doing so) then why not just go all the way. I'm not approving his doing so, just curious...

I'm not sure why you'd equate cdkeys.com with piracy. It's a legitimate website that sells keys, just like Greenmangaming or any other site that sells keys. The keys are neither fake nor stolen. They were just purchased in bulk from countries where games are cheaper.

Unlike cdkeys, G2A and Kinguin are just marketplaces for third-party sellers. They're essentially like eBay for game keys, so there's inherently more risk involved. That said, the vast majority of keys are legally obtained. If they weren't, there would be a ton of revoked keys and those sites would be out of business.

Don't be misled by sensationalist headlines about the "gray market." There's nothing illegal about key reselling. The keys were all generated by their respective developers/publishers and compensation was received. It's nothing like piracy where one person buys a copy of the game and then duplicates it so that thousands of other players can play it for free. It's not even like used sales either, where multiple people can play a game while the developer/publisher only receives compensation from one of said people. Keys can only be activated once so only one person can play per key.
