Honestly I no longer pirate shit because Steams offers me a better service than whatever shit you can find on torrent.

Piracy is literally a shittier product

pirating $5 games is literally for poorfags

>>86928195
I don't give a shit about any of that shit. I just want to play the game and piracy serves this purpose perfectly.

huge reason for me not playing on a console.
>>Day 1 updates
only relevant in online games
I don't even want to sound like an Epic fag but I would probably support steam and valve more if they actually made games or invested in games in some way. Other than playing Lost ark and Apex, I don't really like steam that much and especially the profile/social aspect of it, i don't need good boy points in my profile for playing a video game. Piracy is freedom. Big reason I also game on consoles, for me it's ALL about being able to play the game i'm hyped for. hype is everything.

A lot of shit on steam from non big releases is not pirated.

Also, since I only buy small developer shit, my money goes directly to them and not california liberals.

>>86928391
But Steam does all the saves and updates for me seamlessly, I don't have to download the 60 gigabyte torrent all over again each time I big update comes out, and I do not go out of my way to upload my saves from every single game I play just to manually pull them out each time I reinstall the game. It's much less hassle. If there was some free software to handle your saves for pirsted games that would've been much easier.

This. I only pirate the AAA games because god knows these faggots would do fine without my 60 bucks, while I have much more respect for indie developers and would more likely pay for their games even after years of playing the pirated versions of said games.

you seem like one of those guys who like collecting games in their steam library. big reason not to throw money on steam. it insensitives you to waste money on "deals" instead of spending time on games you are truly hyped about.

meh, your arguments for steam are weak af. if it wasn't for lost ark i wouldn't use steam at all. if i want to support a small dev i will donate to them directly. gabe's social fagotry machine is for tranners obsessed with furry mods.

Piracy isn't a price issue, it's a service issue. Everyone knows this. If a service came out with every tv show from HBO, DIsney, etc. all on it, many more people would buy it.

try to find me a torrent about this documentary.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4-U1H6Ugfo

I've able to download it on 2009.
It doesn't exist right now on any torrent site.
Been trying to find a pirate link to it for at least a decade.

another easy test, mr. private torrent site.

find me a torrent with the last version of rpg in a box.

And no, the last version on yandex and russian sites is form 3-4 years ago, and is the alpha demo.

What do you mean? I pay for my games and could pay for other software like AV also. I'm just asking is separate AV still needed with windows? I though that internet being around for like 20 years M$ would have created some in-build security.

I feel the same but with music, since I don't play gayems.

The amount of time and effort to get everything I'd want via torrent not taking in to account the BS (wrong file names, tags, quality) isn't worth it when deezer is cheap as fuck and has all the obscure shit I like on hand.

I stopped pirating when I learned how easy it is to make and disguise Trojans, etc so virus scanners don't pick them up. So many ways lmao. And public trackers are the first thing a skid runs to. Some people obviously just crack games for the challenge/fun but it's so easy to just insert a virus or Trojan, keylogger, etc, anywhere and it won't be detected because of the way virus scans work they just scan for known signatures
