DRM is hardly any type of obstacle for pirates. Once a game's DRM is cracked (and typically it is before a game even HITS the public market), it is available to any and all pirates of the software. Which means to me, as a person who enjoy my games in my recreation time, that the only people who the DRM effects are those who legitimately purchase the game. Why should it be those who buy a game legally that have to suffer the irritating limitations of the colorful variety of DRM that's put on our PC games? It's pure stupidity.
