Piracy = Theft – Stop trying to fool yourself

The recently released Demigod boss has come out and given us his personal view on pirates and I agree with the man 100%.

According to Brad Wardell “Demigod is heavily pirated” and

“make no mistake, piracy pisses me off”

He then goes on to say what most pirates refuse to admit.

“If you’re playing a pirated copy right now, if you’re one of those people on Hamachi or GameRanger playing a pirated copy and have been for more than a few days, then you should either buy it or accept that you’re a thief and quit rationalizing it any other way”

There is no justification behind pirating and you cannot deny the fact that if you are pirating a game, movie or piece of music then you are a thief, pure and simple.

What I did find interesting however is that he mentions playing it for more than a few days, so basically he is okay with you pirating his title for a few days to see if you like it but after that you should really be buying the game. But isn’t that what a demo is for?

I would hesitate to accept that we can tell the thieves that it’s okay to pirate the games first, as I would be shocked if many of them really upgraded to the real version .
