Pretty sure they are. And even when specific pieces are found that aren't binding or violating the law, the EULA says the rest of it is.
If by "pretty sure they are" you mean in the US then that's about it. For everywhere else, then no. Because EULA's fall into contract law, and for contract law to apply various provisions of the said law have to be equal to both parties. If the contract is unfair to one side then the entire contract is considered void. The EU in itself is more stringent on this than Canada is.
By "pretty sure" I mean that I haven't bothered to look at all the countries outside of the one I live in. EU is a mix of country and EU laws. If YOU want to research it for other countries feel free.

One of the ones I have heard about is germany. I've heard that in germany, it could potentially be if its agreed to before purchase. Steam asks you to agree before purchase.

Jesus, I'm glad that we haven't your sense of justice here. Just because someone doesn't grant you an alternative option, doesn't mean that it is legal what he requires from you. Please keep that EULA-logic on your side of the ocean, thank you.
