    Did you buy or crack major PC programs? (Photoshop and Vegas Pro to anti viruses)
    Do not forget this still applies :D

    I only pirate old games. I try to purchase games on current-generation systems, and I sure as hell don't pirate PC games/software (too big of a gamble; you may get a game/software, or maybe a virus).

    EDIT: Oh, and I refuse to use antivirus, so I don't need to pay for it. :yay:

    I do a little of everything.
    I buy games when I really want them. Crack the ones I am unsure of. I also buy most of my games when they are on sale or wait for the random times when games are given out for free.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i actually thought this thread would be about drugs....

    or photoshop for advance edit pictures from time to time.. i mean sure we have gimp, but photoshop is still a great tool and it is better IMHO, i am just a kid who likes to edit pictures for fun...
    if i had a career or used theese tools for work and get money, yeah, it's an investment! you should buy them!
    but i ain't pay 500 bucks or what it is price now to photoshop my school crush to a naked body every once in a while... what if some day i find her on web cam websites? that would be a total waste.. and i don't needed photoshop anymore

    I pay for steam games because sometimes you can't play online with cracks. If it's an offline only game I'll crack. I have never heard of anyone who's actually bought sony vegas.

    just as i told as a joke before..
    no one buys theese tools unless they do have careers and jobs that need them...
    no one will buy a 500 tool just to do amateur stuff...
    as for famous youtubers, fuck you! if you are someone famous and can spend 1000 bucks on a camera, another big buck for a fancy radio\studio mic, ultrageous pc specs etc etc. you own a lot to sony vegas or adobe premier or what the editor you use...

    The reason I don't use antivirus isn't because it costs money; it's because I don't think antivirus is necessary. I have not installed a single virus in years...ironically, the last time I had issues like that was back when I used antivirus.
