    I had a modded PS1, but I just bought pirated games from some shops. The first one I bought was Crash Bandicoot 2. I started burning games on my modded PS2. The first one was Viewtiful Joe.

    The first PC Diablo. Simple as ripping my friend's disc and installing using his CD key.

    The Japanese Pokémon Gold and Silver GBC ROMs. From there I discovered you could play many consoles and games on the PC...and it just skyrocketed from there.

    Now I hardly pay for anything that isn't on the Wii anymore.

    I got a CD of GBA ROMs from my friend's dad, but the first thing I pirated on my own was SMB for the NES.

    I remember back in the C64 games, on our local radio, the presenter would say stuff like "Alright, get your tape recorder out, we're gonna send out "XX"-game in a few moments"
    The radio would then send out some weird noises, but if recorded properly, those sounds would do nicely as a game [​IMG]

    Good times

    Contra for NES. I payed for it, didn't know what pirating was back then. In the Soviet Union back then, everything was pirated.

    I still remember hunting down iNES 0.5r (I even pirated the emulator!), and getting SMB1. Stupid Marat, charging money for an emulator. After that, I just never stopped. I still buy the games I like and want to support, but I usually just download games first to give them a shot.

    Oh wait my first pirated game wasn't really Asteroids for MAME...it was the first one I willing did myself.

    Back in the day when I was 4, my dad bought a 190 games in 1 cart for NES. MAN THAT WAS AWESOME!! I WAS THE COOLEST KID ON THE BLOCK! It was fucking $300!!!

    Now that I look back, it hurts.
