Ok, so that makes sense, as far as you being able to play some games without updating and others not, but I still put this off on steam. Because these developers need steam, not the other way around. Steam could enforce consumer friendly practices if they choose to, and developers would have to go along with it. I don't see why developers should have a choice whether or not to force people to update offline games. That's a choice that should be made by the consumers. I couldn't give a damn what their EULA says. They don't respect my rights as a consumer, so I don't respect their EULA. And if their EULA inconveniences me in the slightest, I'll do whatever I can to circumvent any control they have whether through steam or otherwise. That's just one more reason I should go GOG only.Edited by chaosblade02 - 8/21/16 at 5:17pm
