Report: The Most Pirated Game in America is 'Watch Dogs'

August 14, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

What are the most pirated games state-by-state? According to data collected by Movoto (as detailed by GamesBeat), the most popular game to download illegally from filesharing sites in the United States is Ubisoft's Watch Dogs. By state, Watch Dogs was downloaded the most in Washington, California, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and a host of other states. It is by far the most pirated game in many regions in the country.

Skyrim, Garry's Mod, Xenonauts, The Sims 3: Island Paradise, and Dark Souls II also proved to be popular, though some of the downloads are head scratchers. For instance why are New Yorkers so fascinated with FIFA 13, why is Nevada still playing Rise of Nations, and what's going on in Oklahoma that they are playing Naruto?

Check out this GamesBeat report, but don't try to make sense of it.

Update: TorrentFreak sifts through the data and finds it lacking.

I find it really sad that Oklahoman's have no idea how to pirate games. Why is some obscure Naruto game the most pirated here?

Re: Report: The Most Pirated Game in America is 'Watch Dogs'

Its the most recent entry in the series. Not really obscure.

Boy, it sure is a good thing Ubisoft loaded Watch Dogs with uPlay and fucked up the game for paying customers to make sure exactly this sort of thing didn't happen!

Re: Report: The Most Pirated Game in America is 'Watch Dogs'

I'd guess the giant middle finger to PC gamers over the game OUTSIDE Uplay is the main reason for its rampant piracy, article debunking or not.
