IIRC i only bought ambermoon and beneath a steel sky for my amiga, buying all those empty disks for the weekly copysession was costly enough.
I dont feel bad about it as i didnt have the money, so from my point of view there was no real loss for the Game Studios. Play the crack or dont play at all. No profit for them either way.
Today i buy the Stuff i consider worth paying for, thank god there still are cracks to check things out.
