Back when I had the Amiga, I was fairly young. The thing is, I wasn't even aware that you were supposed to pay for games because, honestly, I never saw a shop that had Amiga games.
There was a specialized Amiga store next town and that didn't even have games just hardware and some office software.
I only realized that you were supposed to buy games when I began reading Amiga magazines.
But, and this is the truth, my parents didn't want me to pay money for games. They reasoned that, why should you pay money if you could get them for free.
Only when I started to earn my own money, I could start buying games. My first one being Monkey Island 1 - so you can see how long it took me.
Today, I'm trying to get every game I ever had (and liked) legally and kind of make up for my mistakes.
