Securom really that bad?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

I know its kinda late but is securom really THAT bad? I've googled the issue people have said that (supposedly) it screws up their games and some optical drives dont work because of it, but for a person that just wants to play games and dosnt pirate, is there anything to be concerned about?

The program doesn't measure whether you're a pirate or not, I remember having Securom screwing me over on GTA IV when it was just released, even though I had the disk in my drive, it wouldn't detect it properly.
But I haven't had any other issues, it's just an annoyance the way I see it. I like CD Projekt Red's (the guys who made The Witcher) approach to the DRM subject; It's not working. It doesn't matter how great an effort companies put into their DRM software, it will be bypassed. Ubisoft was practically being laughed at in their effort to secure Assassin's Creed. Which, if I remember correctly required you to be connected to their servers at all times to be able to play the game. The same with Starcraft II by Blizzard.
Sorry for hi-jacking the thread there!

There is nothing to be concerned about, it's just a redundant false feeling of security for the publisher.
