Blood Bowl, SecuROM, and a Personal Letter

Posted by | October 25, 2011

DRM is the cancer killing gaming. We all know it. When a pirate product, minus the restrictive DRM, is actually better than what’s up on shelves, there’s a problem. Here’s an open letter to Cyanide Studio about the intrusive and just generally nasty SecuROM DRM used in Blood Bowl. Game Politics has the story.

    Just throwing this out there, DRM has stopped me from buying games. I do look at the technology used to prevent me from owning what I buy.

    My back shelf is filled with games from companies that no longer exist, and if they ran on DRM, well, they wouldn’t run on my computer anymore. I don’t want games that die with their creators, and I don’t want future license-holders shutting down the games I bought, even if it was ten years ago. I have, and play, games that are almost 30 years old. That won’t be the case with DRM games. Those games are doomed to die when whoever controls the DRM folds up.

    Just something to consider.
