Honestly, I have been a gamer for as long as I can remember and i have bought many of my titles until here recently when more and more security measures have been taken against piracy. Many of these acts have done nothing but force people to resort to piracy to even enjoy a game more than once or twice, see Bioshock's protection as an example. For buying the game one is able to activate it a limited amount of times, and requires a hardware check to see if someone is playing it on a friends computer sound good? Wrong, the way of using a single CD-Key per user that would require a online check has been the way of the past, but it is tried and true, and I would personally prefer that method over what has been used here recently. I personally would like to see things go back to the way that they were before the DMC forced stricter security measures that punishes the average users of said product.
