Security isn't a black and white thing. There are varying degrees of security and most people are willing to sacrifice some degree of freedom to attain it. This doesn't make them unreasonable. It makes them practical. It's why you choose to live in a society bound by laws and regulations. If you want complete freedom, you need to become a hermit and live in the woods, desert or some other remote location far away from civilization. I'm pretty sure you aren't a hermit living in the woods or desert so really, you're just being a hypocrite.
I'm talking about bought security mainly. Let's try to seperate the safety in numbers argument from the company or politician trying to sell you a false message of security. They sell you peace of mind and nothing all. Secuirty is a band aid to a much larger issue of evil human behaviour. Obviously humans need to stick together and that's not what I am talking about. Rules are important but security, the peace of mind bullshit people sell you, is not needed. There is only so far you can go where the balance of ACTUAL real safety is not increased vs the restriction of freedom. It's a balancing act, you should never go too far and choose a little bit more security over freedom.

Such as, not being able to access some of your games without an internet connection and some companies stupid software that is just designed to sell you more shit.

Also, how am I ignoring you? I've addressed every one of your points and refuted them with undeniable facts. That's why your argument is poor. If you can present an argument I can't soundly refute, then you'll have a good argument. Your personal tastes are all well and good but they don't support the arguments you're making. You may not like DRM or Steam but that doesn't change the fact that Steam has had a beneficial impact on PC gaming and that most PC gamers like it.
No. You just ignored me completely with Sleeping Dogs, that's a real issue and real concern for Steam. Forcing people to download and update or not play their game? That is extremely restrictive.

We don't live in a world with unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space yet and it's probably a way off still.
