This is what I do with music. I download a lot of music, but I own over 170 CD's legally (and plan to buy hundreds more), and many of these I wouldn't have even bought if it weren't for the ability to download.
But, as for games, I don't pirate them at all, I just don't. I think that much more work probably goes into video games. And, unlike music, if you're going to try out a game, you have to download the entire product, which is something that I feel bad about. Whereas, with music, I'll just download a portion of the songs from an album.
