View Full Version : A Moral Dilemma

I have a question I'd like to pose to all of you here. I was at EB Games applying for a position the other day, and was perusing through their used PC games rack when I found No One Lives Forever. Now I've never played the game myself, but I have heard MANY good reviews, and it was only 5 dollars. I purchased it. Upon returning home and opening it up, I found that only disc one of two was actually in the case, and I'd opened it and broken their sticker, nullifying my option of returning it. So here is my dilemma, I have a game that I payed for, but can never play due to the company that sold it to me not checking for both discs before selling it.

Is it morally acceptable now for me to download this game, or not?

I'd say yes becuase you already paid for it :).

et, you ass. ROMs are only illegal if you don't own the actual game. :p pay attention to the warnings and laws.

that's a yes, download it, by the way.

Why can't you just complain to the store that sold it? I mean, you couldn't know that there was only one CD before you opened it, could you?

I definatly think you should give your complaint about it to the store. If the store has any decency, there's at least 95% chance you'll get a new copy.

Problem solved.

Well, he's applying for a position where he got it from. So I don't think he wants to make them think he's an ass. Worst thing to do. Ever.

Since you paid, and got ripped off, I wouldn't object with downloading it. :)

I'd love to, except the store is in boulder, and I don't move back to boulder for another two weeks. I was there on housing business, but it's an hour and a half drive to get there from here. and I'm not really keen on making that drive if I don't have to.

et, you ass. ROMs are only illegal if you don't own the actual game.
That's what I figured, I just wanted verification.

Wait, ET has morals?

I know, shocking isn't it :dozey:

It's legal to have 1 backup copy of every game you own, so yes.


Dunno why this is such a big deal.

NOLF IS A GREAT game. My first mp one as well. really ace. Hilarious...was GOTY as well on gayspy.

Yes download, its a back-up. And play the nice ol' game.

i wonder if there are still ppl playingMP..when i played it 2 years ago we werent with that really many, but we all knew each other, was kewl. Knew the password for every locked server

also a + side with that was that we could actually organise a "world championship". Oh yes and in MP i had at least 2 exploits for each map (getting outside the map, still able to shoot), almost everyone knew em but didnt use em
ah good ol times...

I figured it was essentially the same as having a backup, I just wanted to see what all y'all thought :)

I am havinga really hard time finding someone who is sharing this game though, it seems to be just too old :(

I would *ring* the store, ask to speak to the manager, be very civil, and you'll see that most places are reasonable. At the end of teh day, its only 6 bucks, you generally would spend more than that on lunch, so I wouldnt worry too much.... I think the d/l thing is the last, but justified resort.... because if you were really pirate scum (arrggh!) then you wouldve dowloaded the whole thing from scratch

And ET, I agree with the others, download it, don't bother the store, so as to not risk bringing your chance at being hired down.

They did the same thing to me. I got one, got home, no second disk. That's why I don't go there often.

Argh, be a pirate ET :D

And at KBell : PWND :p

Do what Astro said. Give them a call and see what they can do for you. If that doesn't work, the next time you're up there, slap them all with the game if you don't get your job there.

NOLF is a great game. My only problem is that the graphics get screwy for some reason... NOLF 2 is also fun.

bittorrent sucks. Use ftp to download and share family pictures

well nolf had good graphics for its time. Monolith always had nice graphics for its games, F.E.A.R., for example, looks awesome. Deserves to be on the doom3/Half-life 2 level somewhat; it looks amazing in gameplay.

Yeah, the part in the trailer when you're in the car and *GASP* someone else is driving and you aren't shooting at anything and the car turns over looks awesome.

He certainly only uses bittorrent for the transfer of perfectly legal materials, such as the bittorrent downloads for the free RedvsBlue videos..........RIGHT Captain Wilson??? :indif:



This thread has deffinately served it's purpose, as I've resolved my NOLF issues. Thanks for all the help fellas :)




That was my 5000th post here....I need to get out more....I'm going to play tennis, hopefully RP can keep some control in here while I'm out :xp:
