I rarely ever see an Amiga come with more than 10 games, and even 5 is somewhat rare.
I'm pretty sure PC were equally bad when it comes to piracy.
But you have to remember that these were for piracy-free consoles, thus the only way to get hold of it was to buy it. Had it been the same with PC (or maybe even Amiga games), sales would be pretty good as well.
They didn't have enough money to buy Monkey Island so they pirated it, yet they had enough money to spend on King's Quest...grumble grumble...dumb teenagers and their dumbness...grumble...
