Game piracy?

Nintendo DS: I pirate more than I buy, but I STILL do buy.
Nintendo Wii: I have more bought games then pirated games, but I STILL do pirate.

I used to buy DS/GBA games, then I got my flashcarts.

I used to buy PC games until I got burnt by that Starforce virus....er....I mean "copy-protection".

I don't "buy" any of them anymore.

I have pirated about every game I ever played

But when a game really satisfies me, like Mario Kart DS, I buy it.
Same for PC games.
I have played the whole Call of Duty series illegally, and bought them all because I loved it.

Indeed.. I get more games on the Internet than I buy then.. I bought 2 games when I bought my DS.. and 3 Wii games when I bought it.. but I'm waiting for D2CPro to mod it..

I work with programming so I fell a little bad about it.. but the prices of games in Brazil are way too high! A new Wii game here is usually more than 200 bucks.. if the prices were reasonable I would buy all my games..

Hmmm. If I look at how many decent games I own, and how many decent games I (in the hypothetical case I pirate of course cause I don't cause I'm a good law abiding citizen) pirated..I'd say it's about even. I'm not gonna count the crap games, cause seriously, noone deserves money for those period so I refuse to call that pirating.

If nintendo would actually make this kind of crap affordable in europe like it is in the states, makes every game available everywhere at the same time and stops the shovelware, I'd have no reason to download anything.

Basically, I buy any game that I would have originally bought before a flash cart. I only use my flash cart to try out obscure games, imports that would be impossible for me to get without paying an arm and a lag, and games I know will be crappy but still want to play them. All of my console games are bought and I don't have a game worthy PC so not much there either

I buy a whole heck of a lot more then I pirate, probably 10-1 at least

Consoles, as much as possible. PC, not really. Music/Videos, yes.
I haven't had the possibility of pirating games on consoles for that long though.
I got a GBA-only flashcart after the DS came out (before DSL) and that was the first time I had the chance to pirate games on a console, other than emulators.

By the time I got a DS flashcart, I already had 12 DS games, and I still have all of them, although I should sell them while I still can, I need the money
