That's quite interesting.

People complain a lot when the companies don't release demos.

Righteous hearted people like this 'James Grimshaw' could regulate 'demos'.

Agreed it is interesting.

It is because of the leaked alpha i pre-ordered the augmented edtion and im now playing the missing link day 1.

unfortunately not all pirates torrent games just cause of drm/no demo some do it cause they are freaking jerks or don't have money for games or they might have money but don't want to spend that money on games and i don't agree with pirates at all.

there really isn't ever a right reason to pirate a game

Ur right. Piracy is never justified but if a gamer pirates a game because he's broke and has no money to buy games, it doesn't affect the developer at all. Why? The guy is broke he would't have bought the game anyway.

I agree with Gravelord. It's the same with music. I can't buy every frickin album out there, but why should I deprive myself of music because I don't have the money? I'm still spending only what I could spend either way. I'm also finding out whether I like the album or not with torrents. Seriously, who blindly buys albums anymore? And on PC, you can't rent games to try out first. I think the PC world actually shoots itself in the foot by not allowing rentals.

Now if you just pirate everything, then yes, you're part of the problem. But I pay for games, movies, and music as much as I can.
