So yeah, I was planning on getting that new South Park game until I learned that it had Denuvo. Just for clarification, is it legal to get a cracked copy?

It's not necessarily the cracking that's illegal, but the distribution. You could technically get a cracked copy if the creators sanctioned it, but good luck with that. Any cracked copy is also going to be a pirated copy since any attempt to sell cracked copies is illegally against the creators' intended distribution and would get shut down as soon as attention is brought to it.

The distribution of cracked copies is illegal in most countries. There have been lawsuits over cracking software.[10] It might be legal to use cracked software in certain circumstances.[11]
PS, this isn't an ehtics question, future "lol just pirate it tho" crowd.

kinda wish there was a list of games not to buy because of morally reprehensible practices out there

sometimes it's just a matter of reading the steam page but that might shortcut me searching for games in general
