Games "To see anyone defending EA and Maxis for the state of SimCity, even were it in perfect working order on launch, depresses me to my core. This self-flagellation-as-skincare notion, where gamers loudly and proudly defend the destruction of their own rights as consumers, is an Orwellian perversity. That it might be considered in any way controversial to call them out on their crap, to point out that no, always-on DRM is not an advantage to anyone, is bewildering. It's a sign of just how far the gaming world has fallen into the rabbit hole of the publisher's burrowing." As usual, RPS hits the nail on the head so hard it shoots through the board.

Me too.

That is one of the reasons the PS2 was my last console and I don't plan to buy a new one.

All my gaming habits are now mostly Indie games on the PC and Android handsets I own.

I always check if a game requires DRM or some form of always online before buying.

Me too.

So, you're still nostalgic after "good old times" even after revising your earlier views of old computer systems? ;P (but http://www.osnews.com/permalink?555569 )
