“Are you ready, kids?”


“I can’t hear you!”


“Ooohhhhhhhhh….What game has been pirated a million of times?”


“With DRM that’s not worth a dime”


“So us pirates have cracked it, as it must be”


“You’re screwed as a legitimate buyer, we’ll get it for free”




“Haha hahahahaha whahahahaha”

How do you like that crafty piece, eh? American Idol, here I come!  TorrentFreak has composed a list of the top most pirated PC games of 2008.  I don’t suppose you can guess what the top game is?

If you guessed Warcraft Spore, what gave it away?  Yes, according to TorrentFreak’s statistics, Spore has been downloaded approximately 1,700,000 times.  Yeah…..I bet the folks over at EA and SecuROM are scrambling trying to find a way to make the figure look smaller than what it really is.  I’m sure they are also proud that their precious DRM has protected their game so far.

Heres the full list (Name of Game, # of times downloaded, Release Date):

  1. Spore (1,700,000) (Sept. 2008)
  2. The Sims 2 (1,150,000) (Sept. 2004)
  3. Assassins Creed (1,070,000) (Nov. 2007)
  4. Crysis (940,000) (Nov. 2007)
  5. Command & Conquer 3 (860,000) (Mar. 2007)
  6. Call of Duty 4 (830,000) (Nov. 2007)
  7. GTA San Andreas (740,000) (Jun. 2005)
  8. Fallout 3 (645,000) (Oct. 2008)
  9. Far Cry 2 (585,000) (Oct. 2008)
  10. Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (470,000) (Oct. 2008)
