When Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire first came out I bought Pokemon Ruby from a little shop. At first I didn't realised it was a pirate cartidge expecially since they sold it at the price of an original game. I should suspect it from the little washed-out colors of the package. Years later when I decided to resume playing it the save was lost. I played it again from the beginning but days laters the new save have been lost as well. When that happened and talked about it on a forum I realised it was a pirate cartidge. Unfortunately this shop has been closed. If it was still opened I would sue them at the greek agency of Nintendo. After this event I felt like a huge, idiot, fucking noob. :banghead: And I wasn't even a little kid (I was in college back then).
Fortunately I haven't made any other stupit mistake like that.
