Couple of sites I use to find lower priced games :

https://isthereanydeal.com
https://www.g2a.com/

Also steam sales and I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.onsen.gamedealsv1 Android app to find game deals on PS4 store.

I have two main problems with todays games :
1. Paid DLC. Especially selling parts which should have been made into the base games as DLC.
2. Pricing inconsistencies. i.e. Steam prices for RU/ Ukrain are around 2000LKR per game. This should be the case with SL as well but we still get the US store pricing.

By the way, the moment you pirate a game, there is pretty much no excuse for it.
You can say you did it to stick it against the big corporations.
You can say you did it to stand against DRM.
You can say you did it because you did not have a credit card.
You can say you did it because you had no money.
You can say a thousand other things, but none of these are excuses.

If you pirated a game, you pirated a game. No matter what the reasons are, you used someone elses intellectual property without their consent. Just don't try to whitewash that or mask that as an act of heroism, liberation or revolution.

Then there is the other side of the coin. I have seen many people (i.e. most FOSS enthusiasts) frowning when someone uses pirated copies of Windows. Then there are some who raise their eyebrows if someone else pirates a game or mods a console. Well most of the people who do this are not exactly the white knights they think they are. You can't be watching downloaded TV shows/ movies and then frown at software piracy. And no one gives you the morale superiority to tell others how to live their lives.
