Pirated Games Mega Thread
You will need to install all of these before downloading any games (legitimate or pirated!) to stop games crashing due to missing software on your computer:
You will likely need a VPN to download torrents to avoid receiving Copyright notices from your ISP – unless, your country does not care about piracy. Read more in the VPN section further in this thread. Torrents are P2P downloads – you download from other people who have downloaded the file. No servers are involved.
- 1337X – Do not download torrents uploaded by IGG games.

Direct Download Sites:
Direct Downloads are any normal download. You download the file from a server through a web browser. It is significantly safer to download this way and you will not need a VPN. In some cases, you will need a VPN to access blocked filehost sites (e.g. ZippyShare is blocked in some EU countries). It is recommended to use a Download Manager mentioned further down the Mega Thread to help manage your downloads.
