flanking roadhogs are my fucking bane, their will be occasionally a roadhog that goes behind and all he does is peeks his head around the corner grabs a support and kills them and as fast as he appeared he is gone, no one bothers to look around to notice what happened its so infuriating

This is true and pirates get this experience for free, however in many cases it won't effect profits because if there wasn't the option of piracy the game would have never been played by the pirate.

For reference as someone pointed out, since the introduction of steam refunds, the argument of "I was just trying out the game" is mostly moot.

It can? Cinema technically can as well as they rent you a seat. Games publisher produce X number of keys and although they are likely to be able to produce more, pirates do not take up that space, and some pirates would/will never take up that space for various reasons, the company doesn't lose any money from this. So there is no loss of sale.

Doesn't make it morally or legally right to do so.

Not complaining offering explanations... Piracy isn't technically theft, it breaches other laws.

Depends if its shit the theory would be I wouldn't have it anymore by the end of the week, and if its good I'll likely have bought it.

Piracy isn't theft simple as that. legally nor by definition. It is however against the law.

I never said piracy was right, the entire point of my argument which you have so gracefully strawmanned was that there is no loss of sale and therefore no loss of profit in many cases of piracy.

Completely different situation. Cinema's charge for the service of providing the film on the big screen, not for the film itself.

It's literally the same, the products sold are neither things that can be judged based upon the physical stock of the seller afterwards. They both sell not the product itself but the experience. The game doesn't sell the physical copy of the game but the experience to play the game.

In both of them you leave each product not with a physical item but the experience of what the product itself offered.

Who said they didn't want it? If you can't afford it there was no sale. On the more moral terms to try it before you buy it. So you don't waste money on a terrible product you end up not liking. on the less moral side, because you're poor.

Now the real important difference between piracy and actual theft. Is what they did was clone the pearl necklace then walk off. The shop still has it, nothing was taken and if the person wasn't going to buy it anyway there's no loss of sale.

I'd have assumed that the active attempt to gain whatever product that's being pirated is a show of wanting said item. It's not as if they just magically manifest themselves into a torrent program, they need to be put in there yourself or set up to automatically do so. As opposed to being offhandedly offered something like the pearls analogy I mentioned before; if someone said 'Do you want these' then sure I'd take them.

You can complain all you want about the product being something you'd never have paid for in the first place but something has lead to another and you've still ended up with it somehow in your possession. Upon which you didn't turn your nose and say 'Well this is a piece of shit why would I have this?' but rather 'Well I have it now so I'll take all of it's terrible-ness in as if I had paid for it'.

And to the point of 'the shop still has it'. That's a different matter when the product being sold is the experience itself, not some physical item. The money doesn't go towards the physical materials as they would a car or a desk but rather to the physical manhours that went into the product and to make profit from the effort that was put in.
If you're not paying for the product regardless of your financial situation it's a matter of theft.

Though I'd like to see people try your same arguments while sneaking into a movie theater that they haven't paid for.

'I didn't want to see the movie, I couldn't afford to see the movie so I wouldn't have paid to see the movie anyways so there's no lost sale and you're losing no money by running the movie anyways'.

He was named "Vemon Snake" so technically he is a Snake. Also he went under plasic surgery and hypnotism to turn him into a pseudo-clone of Big Boss, which went so well that absolutely nobody else (including himself) could tell the difference. I'd say he's just as much of a Big Boss clone as Liquid, Solid, and Solidus are, just in a different way.
