    so i remember reading a douchy topic about a moth ago similar to this but mine has actual reasons and not ass hole reasons.

    i guess ill start this off; i pirate because im broke and trying to get a job but is hard with the horrible economy where i live. i also pirate because i want to play games that never made it here (im looking at you ouendan 2, project diva 1+2 and jump ultimate stars). i always pirate pokemon games but only because i am going to buy them i wanna try games and decide weather they are worthy enough or out to become part of y collection. finally i also pirate my games because all the games i own i want on 1 cartridge so i dont have to take one cart out and put another in when i wanna play another game

    as the thread/pol says tell me why you pirate

    It's not that I'm broke per se, it's just that I'd rather not pay for things I can have for free. That's my reason.

    I pirate cuz I'm 15 and got no job. Parents do but they don't buy games for me very much. However, I do plan when I have a job or when I'm out of college that if I plan to pirate games, I'd buy the originals and not download them online.

    I do buy games that are worth buying
    But I pirate because my kids always find a way to lose the games I buy them.
    having them all on one cart eliminate that problem
    and also because it's free

    Because I want to play games but can't afford to pay $30 plus for each one. And yeah, imports are also another big reason.

    It's convenient. I usually download ROMs after I've paid for a game, letting me enjoy my purchase for a few days before it actually gets here. At other times, it's just so I can play games I'm interested in, but not so much that I'd buy it first (sometimes this means I end up not buying the game if I didn't enjoy it enough). Although rarely, I do also download the ROMs for games I have no intention of buying. As an example, I downloaded the ROM for Pokémon Black to find out what makes it different to the White that arrived in the mail on Wednesday.

    Well, I pirate because I like to try the games and see if they're worth buying, that's it.

    Lack of proper funds. And if a game is special enough, i try hard to acquire it legally.

    I don't pirate so much anymore because I really don't play that many games other than those I already own. Although I would like to support the developers, all the games I do buy are second hand so they're not getting my money either way.
