Main Question or Discussion Point

Computer games are cracked so that you don't have to buy the original cd and play for free.
Well what exactly do you mean by crack? What do people do so that you don't have to buy the cd?

I want a technical answer. And also I'm not really asking how to crack but rather what is cracking.

There is no single answer as there are many techniques of protecting the software and many techniques of hacking software/hardware to bypass the protection. You will have to look for answers elsewhere, as this is not something that we want to discuss at forum.

A cracker is someone engaged in illegal activity.

cracker

A cracker is an individual who attempts to access computer systems
without authorization. These individuals are often malicious, as
opposed to hackers, and have many means at their disposal for
breaking into a system.
