I pirated it all, and I was very proud of it. Why pay for something you could get for free. Nowdays I pirate all my software too, for Amiga, PC, SNES, N64, Saturn, Dreamcast, Playstation, Xbox.
Only game Ive ever paid full price for was Half Life, coz I was an FPS maniac and didn't have any connections at the time and had a fresh Vodoo2 card that needed to be tested
The only difference from now and then was that I cared about the groups yesterday, nowdays I dont give a shit, I just leech and read the NFO to find out if you need special code or crack.
