As I was a poor teenager that was the only reason I dabbled in piracy in the school playground. I mean 50p per disk (provide your own) for games was the only way to go - no retailer could compete with that
Pocket money was only small amounts back then for me. No chance of buying a full price original game except for birthdays and christmas.
Today as an adult with that all important disposable income (for as long as I keep my current job!) I am quite happy to go out and buy shiny new original software.
Similar situation for many having read previous posts.
