Not to mention a lot of physical games come with extra things- not just manuals but some come with stuff like stickers or keychains, even codes for in-game skins/dlc/etc.

    To be honest, I don't think the idea of a man dating an older woman is bad. In fact, the UAclipsr, 'AugustTheDuck', made a reaction video about a man who dates grandmas, and August respected the man's life choice. With that said, from my research on Marietta Loredo, she was a perv, a producer of fisstech (basically the Witcher's version of crack) and an associate with dark magic, so it made sense for Tuv to say "funny and disgusting" in that context.

    the sram (where the game saves data) always defaults to a large size on a wild card. the game can detect that the sram is longer/shorter than usual, and trigger an anti piracy screen

That and some games, (it rarely happens nowadays but anywho) will come with a poster in the game cover. Those are my favorite posters to have.

    We had a solution to piracy back in the early-mid 1990s. Shareware games were released with a perfectly playable, _complete_ episode for FREE, including a final boss. It was a game in its own right, but if you wanted to continue the experience and finish the entire game, you'd buy the full copy at your local retailer. It was win-win. :)

    The FF crystal chronicles one is actually pretty genius. If they put in a 20 minute timer, hackers might think they are done because the game is running perfectly fine only to find out they have to go back to the drawing board after perhaps already publishing the incomplete version. Same applies to year of the dragon where a bit of gameplay is required first in order to find out as pirates that they aren't done yet, which delays the release of a working pirated version.

    Thank you for making a video about actual piracy measures and not the memes that have been made out there.
    I have to give credit and say that some of the fake anti-piracy measures for some games are made well-enough and they're interesting in their own right, but personally, it bugged the heck out of me. I find this stuff fascinating and you can imagine when I searched for it around the time they started popping up that I found the fake ones.

    the GTA 4 one I remember dearly. I pirated like 2 copies when I was a kid, and both of them had these. To say I was pissed was an understatement. I did not have 1Gb up/down internet back then like I have now, so it took me days to download, only to be greeted with Rockstar's shenanigans 2 times. I respect them now as an adult and have since then bought the game, but if you pirate it I totally understand and feel your pain.

      It's also smart to do cause while digital copies take up little to no physical space, it does give more control to the companies selling them in some cases. Hell, there's some games that, sometime after they were bought digitally, we're shut down with no way to play them.
      Meanwhile physical copies are good to play till they wear out.

    In slight defense of the fake ones, when it’s a good fake, it really shows. Like, I remember being pretty fooled with the mario 64 one that played a bowser laugh before leading to a screen with the game over song, Mario shocked and looking at papers with the “It’s a serious crime to pirate” copypasta.
    When it looks believable I take it more as a proof of concept video, at how even something as simple as a “hey maybe let us know if this is a fake copy” screen can feel so eerie. The ones that are creepy for the sake of cringe creepypasta edits kinda just oversaturated the search bar after anti piracy screens became a meme.

    • @ikarnival

      i also love the gamecube one where it immediately resets your console and goes "hey is this a real disc? enter the code on it now." and it outright locks the console if you fail. none of that baby's first creepypasta stuff with hyperrealistic blood, it gave me chills back then.
      i think i love the ones where it makes the game so difficult to the point that you just wanna give up or just prevents you from playing in a subtle way like that tloz one where you cant control the train anymore.

    When he asked if people still go to GameStop, i wanted to say yes, but then I remembered the one closest to me shut down because of covid. It really sucks because I would always go there whenever i got money, but yeah I still use physical copies because if you only get digital copies and something happens to your console then its most likely all gone, but if you have physical copies, then your progress may be reset but you still have the games. Also, that sims character does look a lot like you.

    Physical copies are definitely still a thing. And a necessity. Though an all digital library is convenient it's not always the best. Think about silent hill p.t. Because there was no physical release (because it was a demo) it has been lost to everyone except those who had it downloaded previously to it being taken off the digital stores.

    I tend to like buying physical copies of games when I can, both because I'm just so used to having a physical copy and because it's extra protection from a game going extinct: all it takes is a game to stop being hosted on a server and for it to no longer be on your hard drive for something you bought to never be available again.
