Crime is a constant feature of video games writing. Somewhere, someone is doing something illicit with them—sometimes comically stupid, sometimes tragic.

Ordinarily, when folks monetize their game piracy, they use Craigslist or some other indirect means of making a sale. I've never heard of a pirate peddling his stuff in a shopping mall, as a Canadian man is accused of doing.
