Freedom of speech asshole.
I buy games I like once I try them out. Oblivion, Splinter Cell Chaos, Doom3. I have a TON of games that I buy, bins full. However, due to games sucking and the hype machine AND the inability to return open product AND the usual lack of a demo prior to the game release, I will download full versions to ensure I do indeed enjoy the game.
I for one do NOT think it's fair for the hype machine to try and goad me into buying a game that underdelivers. What is that old saying, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me?
If I could fully return a game, or even rent a PC game, I would go that route. Since I cannot, piracy, to me, is legitamate.
Same goes for music. Why pay full price blindly going into a products due to hearing one song on the radio or net only to realize the rest of the album sucks nuts?
