Hell, I hated Crysis and couldn't care less about this game, and I'll still be downloading a copy, just to give EA the middle finger and to pass along to friends...
I don't blame you for wanting to do this, but keep in mind you're still helping them by playing the game.
The best thing you can do is just walk on by with regard to this game. The biggest obstacle any companies face is that people just won't care about their product. If people bitch and moan about things but still find a way to see, experience, or buy that product, the company still profits.
You time, or attention, is what makes game companies successful. If no one stops to give their game the time of day they that is the worst possible scenario for them.
Piracy still benefits the game publishers/developers more than not playing it altogether does.
This was a hard decision to make in the past but there is so much content out on the market now you can fill your time with other games.
That is my advice, just don't play this game in any way shape or form. That will send a clear and strong message to these scumbags.
And admitting on message boards like this that the only reason you don't buy the game is because of DRM issues doesn't hurt the cause.
And for the record I was going to buy this game on:
EA Downloader: Bullshit restrictions on downloading, DRM BS
Steam: DRM activation BS
Circuit City: DRM Activation BS
And now I'm not spending any money, or time, on this game at all and it has NOTHING to do with the content, only the DRM. Thanx EA, you're doing a great job!This comment was edited on Sep 18, 15:54.
