That is great and all for older titles and console games but not so much for modern PC games. Most games lately are tied in to storefront/drm/middleware like steam.
So? So what? Your point?
Just don't play them then. What? Is this some type of crack that we can't live without? So, are you saying that once micro-transactions hit games, that we should play those games too because that's what's modern and we have no other choice?

Each time you play modern games, you are supporting a bad business model; you are being taken advantage of by the companies; and yet you don't think twice about it. You just eat it up?

Godddd, humans are dumb.

You own the storage medium you don't own the conten ...
oh, shut the **** up already. brown noser.

Good grief. How exactly is it brown nosing to know the difference between actual ownership and holding a license. None of us own the exclusive rights to an IP to even claim we own it. We have the rights over the storage and physical aspects of it nothing more. This fact just gets more murky with digital only products.

I really dislike the draconian DRM as much the next person. I would prefer to have some games decoupled away from storefronts like Origin as well.

First of all play what you want to play. If you want to stick to DRM free indie games or games prior to 2006 that is your choice. There aren't a whole lot of PC games lately that isn't tied in to some type of service even if they are sold on a disc.
