I bought some games, but back then I was just leaving school so I had a few mates with Amiga's and started swapping. (Mostly cos of financial situation)
I dont like the term "Pirate" for one who copied games from friends.
"Pirate" is the one who copies games for profit, and there were a few back then.
Today on the PC, its "I am a copier, and i am proud of it".
Yes I have originals of the first 2 "Shadow of the Beast" trilogy's (WITH SHIRTS).
