Skyrim = worth buying
MW3 = worth pirating = no worth shit.
Out of that list, I bought portal 2. I liked it. The others I had 0 interest in
Bolded part = Baseless speculation. To lose something you must be deprived of it. Obviously they couldn't lose anything tangible as these are digital copies and not physical items. Lost sales are impossible to prove. That doesn't mean the law wasn't broken in some places but that varies by country. I'd like to see a breakdown by country and also like to know who's buttcrack these numbers were pulled from.
Edit: Ok it seems these numbers were pulled from someones butt. They used a database of searched terms to somehow translate into downloads. So basically these numbers are completely false.
Why not just go on popular torrent sites and look at the number of times each relevant torrent has been downloaded?
Certainly better than search terms I'll give you that but a lot of sites are private with no way to get the data. Only the dumbest of pirates use public torrent sites.
Guys the reason Skyrim isn't on the list is because it came out in NOVEMBER!!! It only existed for 2 months of 2011, the other games have been out much longer. Aswell, Skyrim was anticipated by many and after it came out and got great reviews it paid off(aka people bought it).
I just dont understand why people pirated Portal 2
Torrent Freak uses stat trackers.
I found Crysis 2 to be alot of fun.
BF3 Was Pretty good.
Have never even played FIFA
Portal 2 is awesome.
But of all year i enjoyed Saints Row 3 and the almighty SKYRIM! the most, and i bought them.
It wasn't that amazing... and I'm a huge portal 1 fan. Since I was such a big fan I preordered it, enjoyed it but haven't touched it since :/
You would think since it has online capabilities it would be pirated less, but I guess would still be pirated nonetheless.
Perhaps it is children pirating it? It does seem to appeal to a younger audience to me and pirating isn't hard at all.
MW3 should be pirated it. It's been the exact same thing for a few years now. So has TF2 but they weren't charging for maps and contents till recently (still just weapons they charge for) and they even made the game free to counter that.
im in the same boat as u brother lol
Own them all but FIFA. Just not sports game person at all.
I bought Crysis 2, MW3 was bought for me... and I bought BF3. I liked Crysis 2 MP... just to many hackers and BF3 by far is my favorite. My brother gifted me MW3 through Steam... I think i've played it 2 to 3 hours.. It just feels like mw2 and blackops..... This is the first COD i didn't play every waking moment to beat...
Yea, sorry about that, I didn't notice that when I posted it up. I have trimmed it down as much as I can so I hope its ok now. I put mad work into coding this SOB, and am pretty proud of how it turned out. Anyone can use it, its dynamic and sorts by best class, medals sort by order last received as well as the ribbons. JSON is a pretty nifty data fetching coding scheme.
Well, yeah, but like you said, no real good way to get around that.
I may be wrong, but I thought BF3 and MW3 came out right around the same time as Skyrim.
I find it interesting how similar the numbers are, tells me there's just a portion of people who really don't want pay for shit.
I only torrented Portal 2 because it was mainly single player
I'm sure most pirates are the same way
every pirate caught should have his/her gfx card confiscated and replaced with a gts 430!!!
That would be an upgrade for some
ok,,, an ION then!!!
Never played any of those most pirated games.
Highly unlikely I ever will as they're just not interesting to me.
Errr.. MW3 came out Nov 8 and Skyrim came out Nov 11... Skyrim is just worth buying...
People caught normally at least loose all computers and laptops involved ( never mind what else they get).
People do love war with gun machine n short story, not readin' a Novel, okie?
n we only spend 'bout 12~15 hrs or less for killin' ppl or alien, not makin' conversations n goin' sightseeing day by day with no limit =.=!
No i don't think it could be considered as realistic, as far as the story line goes. but the weapons are more modern and realistic, as are some of the scenes, and the game play.
What a game it may be, I BUY my GAMES!
