    Note: I thought this was the EoF. Please move this and disregard my trolling.

    Not sure what the term is, but I will now celebrate my days of trashing DVD's for a while.
    I am officially gluttonpiracy free!

    I feel like I just broke a marathon record.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't disagree with you here, so I decided to dislike your youtube video~

    considering....


    But glad to see there are still some people who like to pirate! That's what makes GBATemp the greatest! There are so many different opinions so there is tons of help.;)


    you don't say? Oh sh*t I just realized this isn't in the EoF.

    Easy fix that many users don't know:
    Report your own post saying to move it to EoF.

    Already did it for ya though :)

    I'm surprised that anyone actually burns DVD's anymore when you could just use PowerISO or DaemonTools or whatever to mount it instead. Weird to see a collection like that.

    Can't exactly use Daemon Tools for consoles now, can you? I certainly saw some console-only games, like Dragonball Z. That would mean he doesn't use PCSX2, which is weird since, if his sig is correct, he should definitely be able to get 60 FPS (maybe not with superscaling, since the GPU is kinda outdated).

    Some people (including me), even when pirating, prefer to play on the original hardware.

    Correct. Those were PS2 games. I prefer utilizing my SF2 on my PS2 rather then emulate. Most of them I owned legitimately anyway so I threw them away. A few of them go under the category of the last sentence in the video near the bottom.

    I can never go back to playing PS2 at native resolution; 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 makes my eyes bleed. That, and my PS2 no longer reads discs :lol:
