    Give me your legitimate reasons why, I'll go first.
    1) Nintendo won't give me free stuff
    2) I don't like going outside
    3) I don't have any money

    In most cases I never ask "why?" when "why not?" is the far better question.

    Is piracy a communist act? Being a tea leaf, or seeking alternative means of distribution, seems to be built into most capitalist models -- stock shrink, grey markets, fraud and all that good stuff.

    That is ideal capitalism which fails in much the same was as communism fails in practice.

    capitalism = mine is mine. yours is mine once I figure out a way to charge you interest or write the contract.

    My reasons:
    1) I like to tease Nintendo with how their security sucks.
    2) Free stuff! I've probably pirated at least over £500 worth of stuff. ;O;
    3) Game modding. (Obviously on games that I don't legally have)

    Reasons why:
    games not being released in my region (North America) and/or requiring English translations to play them. The Detective Conan games are a good example of this.
    Some older games are rare and/or expensive to buy.
    Some games have no trials to test the water so to speak before dumping money on buying it.

    I should've added this one, because this is a big reason I pirate games too.

    Reasons why:
    Because I don't care about morals™ or what other people think of it.

    Real question is: Why does anybody even care? I don't think I need to explain myself to SJWs/Nintendo fuckboys

    Because Nintendo's (and other company's) profits would fall due to lack of legit purchases, even though there's only 1-2% of Dirty Entitled Pirates™ and 98-99% of normal people.

    Saying "being poor" is a lame excuse.

    If you couldn't eat, have clothes or a house to live, THEN you are poor. :D

    1) Not having a job = no money.
    2) Trying out the game before I buy( if I like it I'll buy it [if I really like it I'll buy the whole series])
    3) For fun, and boasting off to friends.

    I don't pirate. Stealing is wrong. When I say things like, "I want ARM9 kernel so I can pirate games use the full power of the system for homebrew," I'm always kidding. I NEVER pirate games, and the only CIA's I've ever installed were Cubic Ninja (so I can use my card for my O3DS), SM3DL (because I lost the card on the bus), and a bunch of homebrew stuff.

    Pirating isn't stealing though.

    You are using something you didn't pay for and don't have the rights to use. That's stealing, kid.
