I also thought about buying it since the new DLC had day-1 Linux support.

Now I need to find out to which IP's this data is sent to so I can block them. I do not give my consent to this data collection as this was not part of the original GTA V EULA, which isn't valid or legal where I am anyway.

This is not the first controversy surrounding Civ VI, just last year they got review bombed for including an adware/ad tracker (I forget the fine details) called Red Shell that set everybody off. This was later removed. Now they pull this.

I still play Civ IV and V but have yet to purchase VI, and likely won't at this point.

The game industry is in a serious state of peril when all of our favorite developers have to rely on these parasitic publishers to get their content out. On the flip side, it's quite difficult for a low budget game to make any headway, and so we stay stuck.

How are they going to get a photo of the user who accepted the EULA? Scan your computer for all jpeg, jpg and gif files?

I've been thinking of making a gaming only rig that has no personally identifiable information on it and a separate CentOS rig w/Secure Linux for everything else.

Does GTAV engage in this kinda data mining?

I AM NOT CONDONING PIRACY...BUT!! This is why some people pirate games. The pirates at this point get a better product than paying customers who have to deal with Trojan horse BS these publishers keep selling. At this point, I only buy games from Nintendo, Sony, FromSoft, CD Project Red, and a couple of others I'm forgetting. That list grows smaller and smaller every day. (obviously I don't pirate anything)

Go Away
