1.0 out of 5 stars DRM Plight, 28 Oct. 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Far Cry 2 (PC) (Video Game)
I have to say I have been looking forward to this game for a long time. As a gamer I am very willing to spend money on games that appeal to me.

Now the "cancer" that is SecuRom has been introduced to the market I am very dissapointed. I do not want to pirate games and I refuse to support DRM's so my only option is to spend my money with companies that value their customers even though their games may not be as good. I feel like I am being treated like a criminal.

I reinstall my system on a quite regular basis, and I upgrade my PC components as much as I can. It is unacceptable that I would have to "beg" EA to reactivate a games I have paid for just because I had to reinstall my PC several times.

If I purchase a games I expect to be the owner. Gaming is my hoppy and I find it being increasingly curbed by an ideotic scam propagated by the likes of EA. I know many people who now refuse to buy games with DRM's. I hope the manufacturers will come to their senses and realise that they are going to lose their primary market.
