    Less people who think they deserve free stuff from game companies, what else?

    Everybody would think they deserved free stuff, just nobody would get it.

    That's pretty much it.

    No homebrew and emulators? No cool mods? Less viruses?

    Well it would be a boring place. The idea of hacking is like...

    Well, imagine this. There's this door that's been staring at you for the longest time. You want to know what's behind it, but it's locked, so you have to make a key. Naturally, it takes much much more time that you would imagine, and by the time you were half-way through, you didn't even CARE what was behind the door or not - just finishing would be enough.

    Hacking is not equal to piracy.

    The PS2 probably wouldn't have done as good.

    Same with the PS1.

    So that means people would actually have to go to the store to get porn.


    OT: I like that phrase "script kiddies"

    [​IMG] That's hilarious! [​IMG]


    If hacking didn't exist, I wouldn't have such a wide exposure to so many video games...especially those of the first generations.

    If hacking/modding/piracy didn't exist, then entertainment would be limited to the amount of money you have to spend.

    We'd have the same shitty games, but companies would have to use another scapegoat.

    Sony and Nintendo would become Billionaires and we would become poor.

    Life would be hell.

    The Temp wouldn't exist, and I wouldn't know alot of the people I bonded with over piracy and hacking.
