I remember when i bought my Amiga 500, that store wasn't even selling original games. I asked that guy where i could buy games and he just told me, get them from your friends. That is what i did, i got them from my friends and we even had our little network for circulating cracked games.
Then i tried to buy one game "Shadow of the Beast II" which i did, but i had to do it from the UK because i couldn't find it anywhere in Belgium, not to mention that it costed me a lot more then the price of an original game.
It wasn't it worth it to pay a lot more for an original game that i had to get from the UK when my friends had new games every week. And that way it was totally free, we just swapped games and we always had the best games.
