Default Re: Insane PC Game DRM Drove Me To Piracy

They are making legit customers revert to piracy to fix the DRM. Sure, I don't blame the OP but this isn't helping anyone. DRM needs to die, its killing the folks that pay for games.

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.

Well according to some anti-pirate evangelists both near and afar, we need to bend over, take it up the rear from devs no matter what and enjoy what we get, whether DRM screws us or not. I pay for all my stuff minus TV shows (Alpha said it perfectly on page 1) and some music.

Also a +1 on the rule of thumb.

It's just funny. DRM inevitably gets circumvented and it does nothing to stop piracy just like the RIAA doesn't stop downloading of media.

Is that really pirating? Because just downloading them without sharing is legal in most countries in Europe afaik.
