To everyone whining about games costing "too much" (whatever the hell that means), who's coming to your house/apartment/mom's basement and putting a gun to your head and forcing you to spend $50-$60 on them when they're first released?
You know, if you wait 9 months to a year after release you can almost always pick them up new (read: don't buy used games) for $25 to $35 and the developer and publisher still make their money.
Stealing is stealing. Whether it's you walking into a grocery store and hiding a steak under your shirt and walking out or you downloading COD4 from a torrent. It's exactly the same thing. There is ABSOLUTELY no justification for it whatsoever. Any attempt at justification is a cop out and, in my eyes, admission that you personally are a fucking theif.
