I believe that DRM on games is useless. Even with DRM, pirates still pirate the game, and that just leaves the people that actually bought the game with a obstacle. With dome DRM, such as Securom, you can only install the game so many times then have to contact the company to allow you to install the game again if you go over the limit. This is ridiculous. If I pay for the game, I should have the right to install it as many times as I want. And also when you uninstall the game, the DRM program still remains on the computer and it is just junk sitting there. CD keys are enough, no DRM programs.
