Op Ed

GOG.com’s Trevor Longino - Diablo III style DRM could make us ‘lose a chunk of gaming history.”
Games like Diablo III with bespoke constantly online DRM could be lost to gaming culture at large if for any reason the games publisher or developer stops supporting that infrastructure. So when you lose that online connection, you lose a chunk of gaming history.

Then they all go on to say the game is great, give it a 9/10 and advise people to go out and buy it. All of them. Its like they swallowed some kind of mind-altering, Blizzard-slave making drug. Its like if that stuff was present in any other game but Diablo 3 it would be getting a 6 or 7. Instead, it gets a 9.

Well, they likely got something, but it wasn't a drug. Although you can use it to buy drugs, maybe they did that? But, yeah, honest reviews, especially on the major sites, are quite unlikely for any games released by the major publishers. It's been said before, but it hasn't lost any of its truth - game review sites make money directly or indirectly from game publishers. If they start withdrawing that money, the review site goes under. There's a massive economic reason to pad review scores.
