Steamed about Steam

This entry was posted in Online Games, Software, Stupidity by Cleave on

This is getting tired and old where the gaming companies think we are all morons and stupid. When I buy a game, actually buy the physical disks for the game, to play offline or on my LAN ONLY I do not feel that I should have a damned game account to play it! So far the game companies are listening to all the whinny 12 year olds about how wonderful Steam is and how it has saved their gaming life. I could give a rats ass about them when it intrudes into my love of games and my ability to play them. I have been passing up titles because I actually go to the store to buy my disks and I see stuff like SecuRom or “Must have a Steam account” in the fine print. It is no wonder that the stores don’t want to carry the physical disks any more, too many of them are being brought back for a refund. I know that if I had a store I would make damn well sure that if the DRM was not listed on the front of the box I would put it in a section that tells the customer exactly what it is that they are going to be buying.
