You lied and essentially stole a working copy of the game. I'd say it's pretty wrong.

Sums up what I was gonna say.

You sad, sad bunch of amoral jerks. (Just kidding.)
I'd say it's wrong, chunky_droid. If you end up taking it back, I'm sure everyone here would want to know. :)

Isn't it also morally wrong that GameStop sells opened copies of their games as "new"? I only buy sealed copies myself but I know for a fact that the store I shop at allows employees to check out new games and still sells the game as if it was brand new. I was going to buy a new game there once but it was the last gutted copy and it was horribly scratched with fingerprints all over the disk. I'm not saying what the OP did is right but what GameStop does is not very moral in my opinion either.

how are they supposed to trace the game back to the original owner anyway. especially if they have multiple copies of the game.
besides. if it had been the only copy that had been traded in for the past 6 months, and it being the only copy of that game, then maybe it could be done,
seriously though, i doubt very much they would contact the original owner anyway. it`s more hassle and time consuming than it`s really worth.
they`ll only sell the game to some unsuspecting parent or kid. as i`m sure it`s standard buisness practice. because i`ve nearly fallen victim to a scratched copy of a game on various occasions. i alwways make a habbit of checking games before i leave the shop.

Oh, get off your high horse. You'd do it if you had the opportunity, and you know it.

I wouldn't. Not if the only reason is that the opportunity gave itself. Actually, I tried downloading a game once (Bioshock), but I felt so guilty that I couldn't enjoy the game. :( In the end, I bought it with my hard earned cash.
That's not to say I wouldn't do something similar out of pure hate for GameStop, or if I felt it was somehow justified, but even then I would end up feeling bad afterwards and I'd probably make it right again. And calling GameStop "an evil, heartless corporation who had it coming" doesn't really justify anything. Though karma counts for them as well, so I guess you can use it as an excuse... Okay, I'll stop arguing with myself now :P

On a side note; I'm glad to see (some of) the members here have generally high moral standards. I'm getting kinda tired of a friend of mine who in all seriousness can't understand why someone should pay for something when they can just "steal it for free and get away with it"...

Ok, let's be real for a minute. If this is the worst thing you do in your life, you should die a saint in my opinion.

I'm willing to bet a lot of the people that posted negatively toward you have done worse things in their lives. I know I have at least.........waaaaaaay worse.

Pro-Tip - If you have to ask, "Is this morally wrong?", you probably shouldn't do it.

No really; I've never done anything bad, yet. The worst thing I've ever done is downloading some shows, which, when I think about it, isn't really any better...
But don't worry, one day I'll probably screw up bad and do something horrible. Most people do as far as I can tell.

@chunky_droid: If it's nagging you, just set it straight, and that'll be the end of that.

And you'd go crying to the cops like a little girl the first time someone slapped you upside the head.

Sure, morality is highly overrated. Who cares about not having to worry about being rmurdered, raped, or robbed without provocation and threat of incarceration? Not you!
