@DeafMetal, I don't think you understand a thing about piracy, not to mention that trying to act tough on the Internet is useless.
I used to pirate until I got a job and realized what it's like to work for a living. Y'know cause I'm not an ass. And I like to call dumbasses dumbasses, it's a hobby.
Piracy is not "stealing", piracy is making a copy, stealing is taking the original.
You're consuming the product without paying for it. How is that hard to understand?
Because they keep lowering game standards, they make a game, cut most of the content, and re-sell it, do you think that's fair? What if you had to pay to open a door inside your house? That's what it's like, they make something, but you have to pay to unlock it.
Don't buy the game and don't play it? Seriously, that's beyond retarded. "I don't support the way the industry is heading (which, coincidentally, is partly my fault), so I'm just gonna pirate games! Not buy and not play the games? WAT"
I have a self-profession in 3D modelling and graphic design, I know what it's like to make a game
Get back to me when your entire livelihood depends on 3d modeling.
The company pays the developers, not the consumer.
Right, I forgot money appears magically in the company's hands. So THAT explains why studios have been shutdown because high-budget titles flop! Because the magical money fairy forgot to cast her spell! Are you f*cking serious? What kind of dipsh*t fantasy world do you live in?
Pirating doesn't affect how games are made to PC
Seriously, how f*ckin' naive can you get? Let me lay it on you, kid:
1. A publisher/developer will put a product out there.
2. If a product does not make a sufficient amount of net revenue to justify the manpower and time spent on the product, then the publisher will no longer release that product on that platform. The opportunity cost > using the limited manpower, time, and budget on something else.
It's also the reason why games have intrusive DRM, because asshats like you think you're doing God's work by pirating games. It's simple cause and effect.
I'm absolutely not gonna convince you because you're too dumb, young, and naive, and I'm not gonna respond anymore because it's gotten boring, but hey, fun to be a dick to pirates. Yarg.
