It's the difference between ripping a CD you bought to MP3 (circumventing security) vs downloading the MP3s (piracy). In the former, you're supporting the creator with your purchase, and in the later, you're not.

Emulators merely let us play games we own from consoles we own on a different device for which those games are not available.

It's very simple - if you like games, then buy games to support developers so they can make more games.
Another thing is that pirated apps is a huge source of malware and we don't want to see that on Android.
