Gamers Pirating The Sims 4 in Protest Are Being Trolled By a Full Screen Censor

CraveOnline: "As with virtually any game—sadly—, there is a pirated version of The Sims 4 floating around the internet. Although pirates have been successful in acquiring the game for free, it’s at a cost, albeit not a monetary one."

Sucks for them but I don't really feel sorry for anyone. Not EA and not these pirates. You are not entitled to anything from EA, in just the same way EA is not entitled to their money.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

knifefight3199d ago

It's true. There really is no "good guy" to cheer for here.

FullmetalRoyale3199d ago

Bravo(or brava)! Impressively put.

ohh so now protest is the pirate scum's latest excuse for stealing something that they clearly want.

Bla bla bla, they always have some excuse. "Im going to DL it for free on day 1 because it sucks and is overrated, the company who made it is evil, im going to try it for 6 months before I might buy it for 2$ on sale, the main character is bald, its not worth 60$ even though I desperately have been waiting for it to come out for years, there are not enough pandas, it didnt get a 95% on metacritic, the dev is a moron, it has DLC, its only single player or only multiplayer."

Pirates should stop trying to justify stealing software and not play the game if they feel so strongly about it. Clearly they are just trying to justify being scumbag leeches.

ANd I dont agree that ist ok because its EA. Whi gives a shit who the publisher is. Clearly these scum want to play the sims but dont want to pay. If its good enough for your time, its good enough to get your money. ANd dont give me BS about greedy publishers and DLC, it more greedy for pirates to justify stealing everything and anything for any reason.

but hey, I guess in the pirates mind its OK to steal ANY AND ALL games from anyone. Did you pirate justifiers forget what happened to CD project red and the witcher 2? Seems like scumbag pirates stole the shit out of one of the best games ever made by probably the best most gamer friendly dev. What was there reasoning on that one? Nothing, just cheap asses that dont want to support hard working developers.

keep spining the facts, pirates will steal any game. Even ones they can't make up some BS excuse for stealing.

Ahhh....and now we know why the game sucks so much...they focused more on getting the pirates annoyed for a couple days instead of working on the core game and making it better.

Magicite3199d ago

Some pirates might actually be a good guys, yet EA is evil empire.

Back-to-Back3198d ago

There's no point in even pirating The Sims 4. EA essentially released The Sims 3 again.

gamernova3198d ago

Brilliantly said. I am protesting their game by not giving it my time or money.

Epic. I love when pirated games come coded with certain flaws that aren't discovered until the player is invested in the game. Sweet, sweet revenge. I don't agree with pirating in any case. If you want to play it, pay for it, if you don't, then play something you actually do want to play (and pay for that too).

Technically, you could say that it is because of pirates that developers are finding ways to recoup costs through DLC and add-ons... if everyone actually paid for it up front, they would have the money to develop more things for cheaper or free .

annoyedgamer3199d ago (Edited 3199d ago )

That doesn't count for EA. Piracy is also not an excuse for cutting content out of games to sell as DLC and add-ons. Especially when you consider that console centric games are afflicted with the same problem. It is pure greed. I am sorry.

MRMagoo1233199d ago

I can bet you that if there where no pirating of games there would be less game sales not more, a lot of ppl pirate games to see if it's worth the purchase, if they like it some ppl go ahead and buy it, the majority of pirates don't intend on ever buying the games whether they can get them free or not.

ramiuk13199d ago

ps4 and xb1 are pirate free yet DLCis on there,DLC is because there greedy and nothing else

TheWackyMan3199d ago (Edited 3199d ago )

The full screen censor will be fixed in a day or two. This happens all the time.

JonnyBigBoss3199d ago

Hopefully not. Karma is in full force right now.

thehobbyist3198d ago


EA took out pools. Something that existed in the first three games and made it DLC. If anyone is dealing with lady karma it's EA. I bet half of those pirated copies wouldn't exist if EA didn't try to pull that shit.

What's next? EA releases a game for $50 but to be able to move your character you have to buy the $10 day one DLC?

Conzul3198d ago

That at least is one thing I like about the Master Race - they don't take shit from pubs, or not for long.

I'm not paying for something that I can easily get for free. But I do pay for all my console games. But I don't pay for pc games that are usually buggy and suck. Except for minecraft pc which I actually did buy.

TFJWM3199d ago

You do understand this the reason why companies like rockstar doesn't release GTA on the PC till well after the console releases and doesn't care if its buggy or not

DragoonsScaleLegends3199d ago (Edited 3199d ago )

No that's what they make you think by telling you that piracy kills there profits but they are wrong. Almost every movie, music album, and game that sells really great has the most pirated copies out of everything. So what makes them blame piracy is when they make a product that doesn't sell well but really the only reason is that it sucks and piracy is the easiest scape goat to there shareholders. PC version of GTA did not get released so that they would make more money out of the console versions knowing that the people who want it on pc will still want it when they finally release it.

TFJWM3199d ago

@drpepperdude umm you just agreed with my point... some PC gamers will buy it but most will just pirate it. So might as well just push out a shitty port later on PC which they always do.

come_bom3199d ago

You are a disgusting typical console gamer. Console gamers like you don't mind paying for console games, but want their PC games free (pirated).
