DRM is ruining the pc game industry. To install a game on more then one pc when you may have more then one you have to purchase the game more then once thanks to DRM. I for example have 4 computers and two laptops in my house. If i wanted to play the game on more then one then i would have to purchase it 5 times. Or in some cases maybe 2 or 3 times because of some company's allowing 2 installs. I believe that this is wrong and unreasonable. DRM also is basically spyware because it logs details on your system which it has no right to. If a game has DRM then i refuse to buy it.
