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.

Well, I'm not sure it's entirely bullshit... but it should be.


It is entirely bullshit because DRM-free games get pirated just as heavily

(yes, I realize most companies have a no-return policy on computer games, but that's a whole other problem that needs to be addressed right there).


That exists because so many people would take home a pc game, clone it and then return it. PC gamers have made their bed and now they have to sleep in it. That's just the harsh reality.
