            I didn’t say you’d be working for a video game company. You know what, you don’t have to work at all, I’ll just give you some NEETbux every month.

            Only I’ll be paying those NEETbux in word of mouth and exposure. Again, it’s just as good as actual money, right?

                Great idea, put a shitton of DRM in every game. Always online, the works. Make it as oppressive as possible.

                And you can’t complain about that. It was your idea.

                  Not my problem i buy games I like. I dont even pirate but its a non issue for me. Only time always online is unacceptable is on a handheld. On a pc that is hooked up to ethernet? Its a non issue.

                That’s pretty stupid. Nobody is obligated to play video games. It’s nobody’s fault but yours if you choose to spend all of your free time playing video games.

      The problem isn’t paying for games. It’s that games are chock-full of scams, anti-consumer practices and are just generally not a good investment.
      In between inflated prices, exclusivity, proprietary hardware, publishers limiting how people use the things they paid for and games just generally being lower and lower quality as it goes along, why the fuck would I spend any money on it?
      And that’s without even getting into any political debate, because once you do there’s even more reason why you shouldn’t be financially supporting this industry.

        Why even insist on being a part of it at all? Why not just walk away. That’s an optional. Why not just find something else to do? None of the people here are here because someone is holding a gun to their head and telling them to bitch about video games. They’re here entirely of their own volition. You could just choose to not be here. You could always just walk away. And if you don’t, well, that’s your choice. You choose to stay in a system you despise. Nobody is forcing you to put up with all of that stuff. It doesn’t have to be your problem.

          For example, the entirety of the NES and SNES library, specifically older versions of games no longer available for purchase, or games not even owned by publishers. Also, the entire Mechwarrior series, Front Mission series, Ace Combat series, etc. The latter will never see a storefront again due to licensing issues that can’t be sorted out, which is sad.

      Piracy is acceptable in the following circumstances:
      >game is dead or not available
      >game is old and money goes to soulless corpo that owns the rights
      >game is made by giant corpo and piracy will have a negligible effect on sales anyway

      If you pirate games made by individuals, or from independent studios, you’re a bad person. That’s actually hurting the person or people that developed the game.

        Christian morality is actually a bit more complicated. Jesus did command his followers to be respectful to the superior authorities, and to pay ceasar’s things back to ceasar. This means we should at least attempt to follow the law, for the sake of harmony between people’s.

        Of course, corporate overreach by constantly influencing copyright law, this puts a wrench in things. Are we subject to the greedy whims of corporations, even if it’s immoral and corrupt? I’ve discussed the matter with many christians I know, and they say ultimate you need to use your conscience. If you’re pirating something really old, like 30 years old, it’s okay. If you’re pirating the latest COD because it has black people in it, that’s a dick move.

      example, they sometimes claim that in a free market broadcast industry, broadcasters would own certain frequencies in a given region and would therefore have the right to broadcast without interference by a pirate radio station on the same frequency.

      Yet it is clearly not the frequency that is owned, because a frequency is not a physical object but rather an abstract property of all waves. It is the land over which that frequency is broadcast that is owned, albeit only for the purposes of broadcasting that frequency. Ownership of a radio frequency is ultimately a property right over a region of space, which allows someone to broadcast at a given frequency over it.[3]

      This example demonstrates that ownership is not necessarily over entire objects but rather over decisions to be made with regard to them. An object can be owned by many different people because there are many kinds of decisions that can be made about it. Since different frequencies of radio waves can pass through one another without interfering, the same territory can be owned separately for the purposes of broadcasting at each frequency without leading to a conflict.[4]

      Ideas cannot themselves be controlled with physical force, but instead must be controlled by way of other things — paper, printing presses, computers, and people. It is therefore in these things that intellectual property consists. To own a patent in a given invention is to have rights over everything in the universe that might be used to replicate that invention. This ownership is limited; one only owns things to the extent of being able to prevent others from arranging them in a particular way.

      Similarly, to have a copyright in a song or a book is to have a property right over all paper, printing presses, computers — even over all people — everywhere.

        Might makes right is also a part of traditional socialism, with the formula obviously being that the proletariat is mightier than the bourgeois. Do remember that fascism came from a rejection of socialist thought, which could only happen because its thinkers were so well acquainted with socialism (often due to being ex-socialists, i.e. Mussolini).
