[TGDaily]99.8% of Gamers Don't Care about DRM - Page 11

post #101 of 184
Just one thing: DRM sucks,i don´t like it,and i say 99.8% of pulls are bs.
I can´t say i don´t care about DRM,but i can say that EA games is not what it used to be,they are getting worse and worse,the only thing i want from them is RA3 but the rest...no thanks,activision,THQ and ubisoft give me what i want.
I just hope RA3 is good EA cause all you do is screwing it up..

The sad thing is that instead of blaming pirates, they blame the game companies.

Evidently as a legal purchaser of these games I am being "punished" by the DRM, although I actually feel more "entertained" by playing the "DRM infested" games than "punished" since I have had absolutely ZERO trouble from any DRM, in fact if you hadn't told me it was there, I wouldn't even have known.

Getting angry when it causes installation issues on .001% of user's computers because they have some goofy anti-virus issue or firewall trouble is just plain silly. I've NEVER EVER EVER heard of a DRM issue on a clean windows install with properly installed driver software and reasonably up to date hardware.



By the time I would need to call in for a reinstall I am so thoroughly bored with the game that it sickens me even to look at the case.
Holy smokes only the third person today using their brain You my sir are + for stating the obvious that so many people here fail to realize. I too have NEVER EVER had an issue with DRM, hell its only a 'click' "YOU ARE NOW GOOD TO GO.." and you are done. SH*&, whats so damn difficult about that?? (REGARDLESS of right or wrong boneheads...I hate driving 55 in the RX-8 but damnit its just something I have to live with)



*BOLDED* Not to mention the fact that by the time you are that bored with it, its DRM has long since been removed.

I wish I had the time and patience to do a clean install of Windows every time I get a new game . Yes, DRM causes issues on about 1% of computers out there, but that's still 1%. I guess if you're not in that 1% it doesn't matter.
The opposition to DRM should and is more of a conceptual one. The reason someone should really be against it is for what it represents and does. I payed for my game, damn it; why should I ask them for permission to play it or to even install it?

I'm pushing 1yr+ on this install, and I have multiple different types of keyed software on this system- CAD, photo editing, databasing, circuit board routing, etc. I never have run into a single issue with DRM. If I had, I would just attribute it to bad luck, and take what steps were necessary to solve it.

Getting angry about DRM is a lot like getting angry about a monitor with a dead pixel or getting a DOA mobo or hard drive from newegg. It sucks but that is life. Until people stop stealing games the developers are going to make some type of effort to curb piracy, even if that effort is ineffective/misguided.

As I said before, get angry at the freeloading and sometimes profiteering pirates that caused this, not the game devs.

I'm not saying I love DRM, or even particularly endorse its use, but using it as a reason to skip a game all together or as justification to steal a cracked version is pretty much lame.

Just because you haven't had a problem with it doesn't mean no one else has.

I'm sick of you and your crappy holier than though attitude. Go back to the forum you came from.

Stop insinuating that just because I don't share what you believe that I don't use my brain. Stop with the constant put downs of anyone who doesn't agree with you. You aren't impressing anyone or increasing the size of your e-peen by acting like an idiot/troll.

Nice way to contradict yourself. I never attacked you directly but if you want to take it like I did, then sure

Damn is everyone on OCN as closed minded and contradictory as you? I and H, Lelouch and some others actually go against the grain, anyone else gets raped as a troll and a retard. Hmmm....shoulda stuck with watching the news here

*edit* I get told to "go back to where I came from" because my views are different than yours? What do they put in the coolaid here?

DRM only affects purchasers of the game. It is the most illogical thing period.

Close minded? I'm fine with reading your posts and discussing the issue, but when you make comments that say that if someone doesn't agree with you then they aren't using their brain, then yea I'm going to have a problem. And I'd say that I'm the one going against the grain here. I refuse to pirate or purchase this game because of the DRM and yet you call me foolish for standing up for what I believe in.

I told you to go back to the forum you came from because i'm sick of your attitude. And that's just from this thread alone, I'd hate to be forced to read all of your other posts.

Same goes to you my friend, same goes to you

IandH holds the same views as I. So does Lelouch. Do they need to leave with me?

Sheesh, take something, drink a beer, chill out Long day at work?
