    it is illegal. As is downloading illegal music, pirated movies, etc.

    if you want to get the game for cheap, you can probably find it used at gamestop or on ebay

    If the developer hasn't publicly stated that they have made that certain game public (basically all recent big-name games), then it is most likely piracy. Plus, you'll most likely bug and infect your system.

    Games that are legally free have been authorized by the developer, such as Red Alert 1.

    Well it is illegal but that sounds really dodgy and sound more like a virus scam too me... but even though its illegal no one can find out so it doesnt really matter just dont go online to play them, and if you do want to download pirated games download them off a torrent.

    Yes, it is illegal. Go to a local store that sells used games. Cheaper than paying the $250,000 in fines if you get caught.
