7. Re: open letter Nov 23, 2008, 12:15 tgr
While I may not be the huge majority, just silently not buying games definitely won't make them see the problem. They'll just keep on going "ah well, them thar pirates are really eating into our profits!". This way, they know of at least a few games which they've lost at least one sale on each, due to DRM.

That is, if they don't just instantly assume that I'm a pirate since I don't want to buy their game, which is just frustrating to know. I want to buy a lot of their games (farcry2 looks damn sweet, fallout3 looks damn sweet, starcraft2 etc etc etc), but I am not going to.

And with this letter, I can point to that and say "I told you so". No matter if it helps or not (I'm not looking to change the world), at least it's documented so they can see it. It's better than nothing.
