Games

Steam Family Sharing allows close friends and family members to play one another's games while earning their own Steam achievements and saving their own game progress to the Steam cloud. It's all enabled by authorizing a shared computer.

Sounds neat, but it does look convoluted and complex. I have a simpler system, which is quite revolutionary. It's called physical copies and I can just give them to friends. It's magic.

(I stopped watching Extra Credits when I encountered the apalling sense of entitlement and disconnection from normal people's budgets that they displayed in their episode on piracy. Not everyone can justify buying a new $60 game every month!)

Fine, then you don't need it. Find alternate games (which it seems you do) or go without. It's not a life necessity, and I'd say those who claim they should pirate it because they can't afford it are the ones displaying a sense of entitlement. You're life isn't going to end because you have to wait a few months to buy a friggin' game. First world problems, indeed.
