Swen Vincke confesses: "I wouldn’t be in this industry if I hadn't pirated a couple of games"

DSOGaming writes: "In an age where most developers and publishers are fighting piracy with all of their power, a confession from Larian Studios founder, Swen Vincke, comes to shake things up. According to Vincke himself, he wouldn’t be in this industry if he hadn’t pirated a couple of games. Now this is really shocking and we are impressed by Vincke’s honesty on this matter, as most developers/publishers would condemn piracy in due time."

Millions of people pirate. This is not a surprise.

Yep, if I hadn't pirated a couple games, I probably never would have bought them in the end. I don't think Piracy is a good thing and I stopped long ago, but it's definitely not inherently bad either. It just depends on the person.

What if you just want to make sure the game works on your PC before buying it and there is no demo? That would be a good reason to get a game online first.

The people who go out and just get every new game online because they don't want to spend the money on them, despite having it. Those are the bad ones.

Well said. It's nice to see some intelligent, level headed comments like yours instead of the usual "anyone who's ever pirated anything should be raped and killed because they're all the scum of the earth and are no better than thieves" dumbass comments that tend to be common among this site that also surprisingly seem to get high amounts of agrees.
