Already posted my thoughts on the other topic, can you not be bothered to read? You want me to make a topic to complain about the 2 times this has came up? What an obvious fail troll you are.therapist wrote:Again Ill say, come off of it. VapidLinus, the OP, wanted to know the answer to his question, and at least the angry morality police were staying on the topic and answering his question. Getting upset that the question is brought up, and pointing out over and over and over the flame war occurred in another thread about this topic WILL NOT stop this discussion.Darthlawsuit wrote:Already a topic on this and already been answered multiple times:
We value the input of letting others read the nasty flame war thread, but it might be nice to have an actual discussion about this topic between human beings rather than just letting trolls duke it out. Maybe you could start your own thread where you complain about how many times this topic has come up and how you wish people wouldn't discuss it because it has been answered just so so so many times (the one flamewar thread).
What if I mirrored your disapproving sentiments and said I don't really feel this is the place to voice your opinion on the validity of this thread or this discussion, the topic of this thread is trying a game by pirating it first before buying. Accept this discussion will occur (YES, AGAIN) and either contribute, or choose not to contribute. We can start a thread just for bashing the discussion or raising awareness about how this question has already been answered if you want, but maybe expressing that sentiment for the third time is unnecessary?
The discomfort from the forum users surrounding this topic is so amazingly palpable it's unreal. It's as though some of you feel dirty or start to squirm at the mere mention of "piracy" about your beloved. She (factorio) is all our beloved, and we all love her differently. One way is not better than another, all roads to sales are a success for our proud beauty queen, even those you might find unsavory.
I'd like to see you mirror my sentiments since you couldn't possibly have gained much from the little I posted, go ahead I am waiting. Well that last sentence just proved you are incapable of clicking a link and reading what I posted in that thread. You are such an obvious troll it is unreal...

I bought Rome 2 at full price and I have yet to get my money's worth, it is a broken piece of shit that I wasted $60 on. Why waste $60 on a non-functional game when you can pirate it to make sure the game works and offers what was promised then buy it if the game wasn't misleading in its advertising. Half the games I have bought I pirated first, infact they are my BEST games that I play the most. I got into paradox games by pirating Europa universialis 3, then buying it and all expansions... Then I moved on to Hearts of iron 3 and own everything now. Heck I pirated Crusader Kings 2 and I now own most of the DLC released for it . Sunk hundreds of hours into those games and I threw my money at them, nothing for them to complain about.My point being, what is your opinion on this behaviour? Feel it's 'right' to pirate games, and buy them if you enjoy them? Even if there is a demo?
