All of those things you mentioned affect what I would guess to be less than 5% of the gaming population. Additionally, those who want to steal games will always find a way to do so. I'm not sure why pointing that out proves anything. Once I got out of my poor and idealistic teenage years I had both the money and the sense to purchase games I wanted to play. Whatever, ignore the previous paragraph. I could do a point by point argument back and forth with you and everyone else until the end of time and it will change nothing about either of our plans. You can sit around in your circles of like-minded people in rural arctic farms playing another companies' game off a 56k modem hooked up to an oil generator 20 years from now when Blizzard is no longer a company. Me? I'll be playing a game I'm hoping is gonna be awesome.
