The way money should be spend is : 1) Food 2) Entertainment.
And when a game costs 20/month or 50 for the disc and your income is the average/below average piracy saves the day. If i could afford every game i played i would change my pc too or buy a car also.
People who make games need to eat too so when i had some money left i bought : CS,CSS,CS:GO,Terraria,Oblivion,UT3,Torchlight2,WC3 ,Alien Zombie Megadeath,Call of Duty 4,Bad Company2,a game boy and a bunch of games for it.
So i guess after all these "donations" i have the right to pirate games. Forgot to say that the windows im using now to post are pirated too. Because if there wasnt TPB i would have a "dead" pc without a gaming-able OS.
Sometimes id rather "steal" than beg for games. I know so may people without spare money that i totally support piracy. Remember that in ancient Greece the entrance fee to theaters was 0 for citizens with low income. Well piracy does this in 2012.
