While games cannot compete with the amount of pirated movies and television shows that are downloaded, EA’s Spore managed to come close to that number, even though being protected by DRM – topping the list of being the most pirated game for the year 2008, according to TorrentFreak, who complied the list. They estimate that the total downloads for the game is around 1.7 million.
Second on the list was The Sims 2, Assassins Creed came third and Crysis came fourth on the list. Command & Conquer 3 was fifth on the list, with Call of Duty 4, GTA San Andreas, Fallout 3, Far Cry 2 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 finishing off the last 5 of the top ten.
