    So, I was just curious of how many people on GBAtemp are pirates. I'm guessing like 99% of us are pirates lol The poll has three questions:
    1. Have you pirated before?
    2.Do you currently pirate?
    3. If you pirate, why do you?

    So, hopefully this thread gets lots of interest, so we can see what percentage of us are pirates.

    Yes, yes and mostly because video games are really expensive (and I don't have any money... I buy the consoles though!) and sometimes, to try out games of which I'm sure I'll buy them anyways (like Pokémon SoulSilver).

    Yes, I've pirated before.
    Yes, I still pirate.
    I pirate because I don't want to waste my money on something that might not even be all that great. I only buy stuff I know I'll enjoy.

    Same. When I become a millionaire I swear I'll send bags of money to each developers' HQ.

    Have I pirated before? Yeah.

    Do I? Nah.

    Why did I? Poverty and being too self-concerned.

    The hilarious thing about this post is that if someone comes here and posts "I downloaded X game by torrent or free" everyone will start harassing him about piracy, however the statistics shows otherwise [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Even if I was rich and I could buy hundreds of games and other media (music, movies) I would still pirate.

    Why buy anything when you can get it for free?

    Members harass other members when they post download links, not when they say they downloaded something...
