Are you kidding me? You don't know of any
great games Ubisoft has made? Assassin's Creed? World in Conflict? Ghost Recon? Rainbow Six? Splinter Cell? Have you been living under a rock the past 10 years?
Their DRM problems have nothing to do with how great those games are. And almost all games are console ports now. Doesn't mean they're any less good on PC. Usually they're still even better...(graphics, multiplayer, controls)
So you can't decide which 'evil' company they are like? Is it Activision or EA? Both have different ways of 'murdering' franchises as you put it. I haven't seen a single Ubisoft franchise go down the drain like CoD.
