I do that. Unless it's an EA game. I feel they don't need (or deserve) my money.

I'd appreciate another developer's arguements, a developer whose coming from a vastly anti-pirate view...

A discussion would be fun!

And crimson, EA's often embraced piracy. Spore's being leaked, Burnout having online for 5 months even when pirated, and countless other examples earn them great respect in my eyes. But that respect is often thwarted by their sh*t games.

Once they make a great iPhone game I'll consider buying them because so far I've deleted all the ones I've pirated.

Wasn't Spore the most pirated video game last year? My friend told me it saw a million downloads in a single day.

I believe it was. It was the most pirated game before official release, I know that. The leak and all...

It's a stripped down version of the far superior PC/Mac game. Could've been better. Much better. EA needs to stop being so lazy and make something amazing because we all know it's possible. Espcially with their resources.
