Good side of hacking

Homebrew

bad side

People who think they can "hack" on games ruining your gaming experience

F*cking piracy

Free Racial (Haze)
Factor 5 (Lair)

Neither of these studios shut down due to piracy...

Don't like, don't buy.
Like it but don't have the money, wait for a steam sale.

Simple eh?
