Re: Insane PC Game DRM Drove Me To Piracy
I do this these days. I buy all my games, and even went back and bought the games I used to pirate in my young days. (I think I've bought Beyond Good and Evil 3 times off of steam, direct2drive, and the GOG)
If I buy a game I have no problem circumventing the DRM if it gives me any problem at all. I just want to play the game.
Rule of thumb, buy the author's work, and cirvumvent the publisher's DRM. You are still supporting the devs, and that's what it's all about.
Consoles: Xbox Elite with HDDVD drive and PS3.
Panasonic AX200U Widescreen Projector (1280x720), 160" HighPower Screen, AND A BIG COUCH.
