You might think of turning to piracy to game on the cheap. But even with older games, piracy isn’t safe. Setting ethical considerations aside, there are simply too many risks to playing pirated games.
It Could Introduce Your PC to Malware
It’s no secret that pirating any kind of software is an easy way to get a virus. Whenever you download from a reputable source, you can reasonably trust that the file you’re downloading is what the owners claims it is.
But that trust disappears when you’re downloading public torrents. How do you know that someone didn’t mess with the file before uploading it and add malware?
Certainly not every cracked game download will contain malware. But think about it: people who want to mess with others’ computers to make money or even just for giggles have a wide-open target when a new game comes out. Impatient gamers will jump on the first crack of the new game that’s available, which could be a costly mistake.
The Game Might Not Even Work
Many game developers don’t wait for the government to stop pirates — they take action themselves. Some use digital rights management (DRM) systems that prevent illegal copies from working at all. But others get creative with ingame copyright measures.
