They have nothing else to do. They have no life outside of the internet. And it's a shame really, because they are so smart yet they are also very stupid. Instead of using their knowledge for something productive they use it to ruin everyone's online experience.
Like senna said, because they can.
If the price for movies at theaters dropped to $1, and could be rented for $0.25... some people would still try and download them for free instead of paying for it with the change they found between the couch seats.
Hackers are not the same as cheats.
hackers do it to prove it can be done and some to make money off cheats.
cheats pay for the hacks and use them in the game.
Hackers don't play games and don't care about gamers.
reason why hackers don't play games... no point in playing a game that they can click a button and have everything in the game within seconds and look like the best player on the the leader boards.
cheats pay for hacks to make them look good because.
1 they can't play games
2 have no friends
3 have no life
4 can never complete a game because all of them are to hard.
5 think it's funny to kill you when your good at the game and we all know they have no skill at all.
6 if you do manage to beat them they will send you a message saying your a camper.
To sum this up.
Hackers do it for money and to prove they can.
Cheats use hacks because all of them are crap at games.
