Every developer should be respected. If you think the develepor is not worthy of your money, then you do not have the right to play their games. Sorry if I'm sounding condencending but this is just the way I see things.burhanr said:oh er.. i have played and am still playing pirated games (omg, ban, hate, ban?).kayisking said:We do not tollerate pirates on the escapist.burhanr said:Well, when?
-Games are pretty cheap in steam, and you dont have to swap the cd if you want to switch games. Also.. *cough file hosting websites have a pretty good download speed these days, if you know what i mean.
-Most softwares that you really need to use are now available from/on the internet(google docs, skype).
-People who buy music (hah, thats a good one), would most likely bought it from itunes. LOL at popping an album cd just to hear it.

i do not condone it in any way, nor that i am proud of it.
also i have recently started to respect the developers(who deserves it) more and got a job, and bought portal 2 and some other discounted decent games on steam.
games like human revolution, mass effect 3 and skyrim is on my buy list now.
OT: I used mine... about 4-5 months ago when i formatted this laptop.
Same here. I love having a huge CD collection. Sure, the first thing I do with a CD is upload it to my hard drive, but I still like having physical copies.rockavitch said:I'm using it right now to listen to a CD, believe it or not some people like to have a physical copy of what they bought.
I installed windows off of a USB stick. Copied the contents of an ISO and used my own CD key that came with it. My DVD drive has been broken for over a year. I pretty much DL everything (LEGALLY)TheRooster64 said:
