You all know how I feel about ABwarez and roms, provided they are no longer supported or sold by whomever holds the copyrights. But I would like to point out, Altered, that old Sierra Online games such as Police Quest, Space Quest, and such are still being sold. I won\'t get ****ty or anything, since without abandonware you most likely would NEVER had played those games at all.. let alone be more prone to buying future sequals should there be any. I would as of you that you buy the games from Sierra\'s website. http://www.Sierrastudios.com
Also, Abandonware is technically piracy, and legally no better or worse than burning and distributing pre-release copys of Sonic Adventure 2. Now morally, that\'s something you\'re just going to have to figure out for yourself. It is your own boundry to cross or not.
My choice: When a company fails to support me as a consumer by not giving me at least the chance to buy the software from them legitamately, I will not support that company by downloading said software for free.
All I ask of these companies is for the chance to obtain the software I desire.
