Downloading games online is the easiest and cheapest way to get new games. But is it ethical? And is it easy? Downloading torrents is one way to go about it. But most of the time its illegal and sometimes quite complicated. So what's the best way to go about it?
There are sites that have you pay a subscription to either download games directly or download from a P2P (person to person) network. But there are sites where you can pay a one time fee and have access to there network for life. Are these sites up to date though? Some of them are not. But if you do your research you can find some great sites.
Is it ethical? Yes, most of the time the sites will pay the royalties to the gaming companies and still have cheap downloads as you are downloading them and putting on CD or DVD yourself. PS2 (playstation 2) games are the easiest to find and download as the PS2 game code is easy to burn off.
So which sites are the best to use? There are many out there, but as most things online you have to be careful of the scams. Doing your research into it is clearly the first thing to do but always be careful when parting with your money. Some sites will be out of date and only offer a small selection of games.
The best sites are the ones that do not just have the PS2 game code but also have movies, tunes and games on other platforms all easily downloadable and just as easy to put onto CD / DVD
