AOE2, someone swore it was my kind of game, the demo was ungodly bad. I downloaded it, played a bit, bought it, the first one, and the expansions.
Homeworld, I actually got cataclysm first and was curious about the differences, the fucker was one hard to find game in Squarebanks Alaska, but I've bought them all. Patience is a virtue I lack, I do however have the vices of complacency and procrastination, so I get to skip the need to accomplish tasks.
Lets see, some old dos games I no longer have the disks to, MOM, MOO, Wolfenstein, although all of these are public domain anyway.
In the fuck you I'm not buying this shit category, Age of Wonder:Shadow Magic. Ok people, this game might be tolerable in it's own right, but it is to Master of Magic what my asshole is to a source of fuel. Worse in every aspect but graphics, no thanks.
Yeah, that's really it, I'm not a very good serial copyright infringer. In fairness to reality, it is kinda hard to steal shit on the bandwidth limited satellite connection I have now. I've also bought a lot of my games indirectly as a result of piracy, including Stardock games, and not because they're anti-drm. I know two prolific pirates that steal everything before buying, and tend to buy rather infrequently. I'd guess half of all games I've bought have been recommended by selective people that pirated them. The rest are either sequels, recommendations from selective people that didn't pirate, or games with damn good demo's. Reviews get about as much attention from me as paint dried on a wall.
