Newell: Most DRM "Dumb"

A blog called ih8evilstuff has a quote attributed to Valve's Gabe Newell in response to a question about DRM. Here's the good part: "As far as DRM goes, most DRM strategies are just dumb. The goal should be to create greater value for customers through service value (make it easy for me to play my games whenever and wherever I want to), not by decreasing the value of a product (maybe I'll be able to play my game and maybe I won't)." Sounds about right. Thanks GamePolitics.

We shouldn't have to keep the disc in the drive to play it when we have already purchased the game. We shouldn't have to worry about DRM software fucking up our computers. We shouldn't have to worry about install limits....We shouldn't have to do a lot of things in this world...but we do them anyways to get what we want.

No, only idiots like you put up with that crap. Smart people would use the cracks and workarounds that increase the games performance and its ease of use.
