Games So, SimCity has been released - the fifth instalment in this venerable series of fantastic games. However, just as everyone suspected, the game has been completely ruined by the always-online DRM. So much so, in fact, that Amazon has ceased selling the game. Update: and it's only getting worse - EA has suspended all marketing efforts for SimCity, and has asked third parties to do the same. Wow.

Steam does DRM right.

EA and UPlay are joining up because they can't beat steam on the PC.

GoG.com is doing DRM right, Steam blows.

Never used GoG, but I've never had a problem with Steam.

Origin seems to work alright as well and so does uplay, It not as bad as people make out.

Steam does DRM right.


How so when it doesn't keep the games from being pirated? What is right about it?
