Wich of them do bernd recommend me? I honestly don't see much advantage on buying vidyas besides preventing posible malware, having a legal account and Steam achivements, idk very much about it, does it also depends on wich kind of game i'm going to pirate?

>>294971 > I honestly don't see much advantage on buying vidyas How about supporting devs so they can make more vidyas you like?

>>294972 Yeah, i have geometry dash in mind cause is a one dev game But in case of paid games with online features like CS Source or left 4 dead? Valve has enough money, but i think there might be some issue with servers in case i pirate them

>>294971 If you want the game for multiplayer and the only way to play with everyone is to buy it, buy. In all other cases pirate. It's not worth it to buy games anymore. A lot of games get updates which make them run worse. Some updates even remove support for some configurations so you can't launch the game. In other cases a game becomes unavailable for purchase because the publisher/developer craps out a "remaster" with a higher price-tag, higher system requirements, and a much larger install file.

I have a gog account and regularly browse the reduced items and buy things I find interesting. This is my main way to find new games to play. I rarely pay over 20€ for a game. Usually under 5€. When I want to play something that is not on gog I pirate.

pirate what you will but you should buy at least something every once in a while to keep the wheels of the industry going
