My experience with The Sims franchise is similar. I pirated throughout the first and second versions because I couldn't afford it at the time but when I could I'd buy individual expansion packs etc when they were new because I wanted to support the game. When TS3 came out I got a legal copy, but by then EA had gone a little crazy with the DRM and the game constantly broke, telling me it wasn't a legit copy when it was. So I went back to pirating since it was too much of a hassle not to.

I paid the 5 dollars for the Louis CK special, and it was worth every penny. If he had made it inconvenient and loaded it with DRM, I may have been tempted to pirate it.

I happily paid for the first two Mass Effect games. I was hoping to buy the 3rd Mass Effect game, but there was no way around their Origin requirement, so guess what happened?

What about Metallica? Their biatching about Napster put Lars Ulrich's whiny puss on the news for like a year. Lots of free pub.

Why do these lists never include Adobe? The rampant piracy of Photoshop in the late 90s was the best thing that ever happened to them.

Mugato: I can proudly say I haven't seen the Psy video or heard the song. You may touch me.

You're missing out. The video is phenomenal and the song is one of the greatest earworms ever written.

Shahrzad Rafati is drop dead gorgeous. I hate it when beautiful women are smarter than me.
