  1. I wonder why the developer cares if I download their game and play it. I would not buy it anyway, even if it was not torented. So they actually will not gain anything either way. So why bother at all.

    Lol, couldn't have said it better. People pirate video games for two main reasons. They can't afford to dish out 60 dollars on several titles a month and because they are not that interested enough to purchase it. If pirating did not exist, these people would either borrow these games from friends after they are done, rent them, wait until the price drops significantly (after a year or two), or simply not bother with it at all. This mean the revenue to be gained from this market is very minimal.

    PS: If you want more people to buy your product, consider adding a quality multiplayer to your game. Without private servers(which usually suck) or programs like Hamachi, pirated versions of your title will be almost useless.
