There is nothing like the allure of downloading a free video game from the Internet, especially a full version that would normally cost anywhere from $20, all the way up to about $80. But why do we download illegal video game files? And what, if anything, can be done to make gamers actually want to pay for their games? If you haven't voted in the poll yet please do so now.

unless the game is not on sale or rare
- then it is completely wrong to pirate game, yes I understand games are expensive, yes I understand that you want every game that comes out but can't always afford it but why not wait and get it used for £10 and play it then oh wait dlc and online passes yeah well ya shouldn't have downladed it then, because of piracy developers feel the need to charge £100 for content that should have been on the disc that they have held back and for you to go online with the game so think before you pirate in future. beacause if you don't we're gonna have more charges for content that should have been included in our £45.99 game.

High Development Prices? Lower Saleries!
- I have never downloaded an illegal copy of a video game, but I do download music and some movies. Music I download because I want to hear the whole album and make sure its worth the actual buy, to many CD’s have a few hits and the rest just sucks, it ends up being a waste of money because you never really ever listen to it again. Games are geting 2 expensive these days, it development costs are the reason for Higher prices, then maybe they need to lower some salaries somewhere.

Games are too expensive, period.
- We're talking about software that can be delivered digitally, there are no costs involved after the production has been completed. Why are games so expensive? Maybe if they were priced more reasonably then less people would be inclined to download from torrent sites. I'll admit it, I've downloaded a couple of games in the past and I don't feel bad about it. It just cemented the fact that the game wasn't worth the asking price anyhow.
