I love idea of a company that works hard to produce a good game getting the profits they deserve. In the last few year I have dealt with things like having to have the internet to even install a game when at times I didn't have the internet, these are bothers but workable. Things that install programs in the background on my computer I am not ok with. This is my property and I feel that this is a blatant disregard for my property. When I uninstall things or want them off of my computer and they don't fully remove themselves to me that sounds like Malware. I don't like viruses. I hope that we can find a way like Valve's Steam to keep people from blatantly stealing but I hope we don't have a fiasco like Spore. I think that the people stealing PC games are ruining the overall experience for every one. I also think companies are naive thinking that a DRM is going to keep people from getting a work around.
