    I shamelessly pirate anything and everything. It's been that way from the start way back with the leap frog.

    I don't really remember my first, because it was so long ago, but the first time was when i hacked my PSP, the first console I've ever modded.

    Age of Empires on PC. It was a birthday present from a more tech savvy buddy. :)

    I remember day 1.

    I was Super Mario Bros. on NES. The day I discovered emulators was the best of my life.

    Probably Minecraft on PC, iirc.
    My friends had the cracked version on a USB, so they gave me the copy. We'd play in middle school all the time on the school laptops, good times =)

    I ended up buying Minecraft because of skins and servers :P

    That's a tough one to remember but i'd say the original Sims game.

    I think it was either Terraria, or Halo CE. I have long since bought Terraria, but I still have Halo CE laying around and play it every once in a while...

    Half Life was the very first game I actually pirated. I still have that burned disk in my collection.

    You mock, but once upon a time it took days (weeks!) to download a game, and before the internet was ubiquitous you had to pirate games by samizdat and all in all piracy used to be quite a chore. A pirated game took time and effort and thought and it was like a homemade present. :ha:

    The first game that I pirated was The Minish Cap. I knew about piracy before but wasn't interested in getting involved in it. Then when I saw that Minish Cap was so damn expensive on eBay, I sold my soul to the god of piracy. I got the rom from this one site that used to provide rom downloads called GBAtemp. I wonder what happened to that site...

    Geez, I don't really remember exactly... Well, if I had to guess, it was for an emulator, and if it was for an emulator, it more than likely would have been an N64 title, not too long before the GameCube came out. So, probably Ocarina of Time or Star Fox 64 (both of which I had legit carts of at that time, but I wanted all of the pixels and glorious resolution, lol).
