Well yeah but sadly the Chaplin mustache is similar to Hitlers and well most people now a day's don't remember who the hell Charlie Chaplin was but they remember who Hitler was and so if you sport it, your not wearing a Chaplin your wearing a Hitler and so your a evil person. Same with the swastika no one remembers that it was used as a symbol meaning "To be good" (Sw- good, asti -to be, ka- being the suffix) in most ancient religions of ancient India and the east like Hinduism, Buddism, and Jainism but because one person made it a symbol for his group who did all these horrid things all forms of the Swastika are bad and are associated with Naziism no matter how different they look from version used by the Nazi party.
And that was exactly my point.
Companies want to distance themselves from the word DRM because of all the problems it caused (especially with music CDs) in the past. Look at this forum and see how many people bash Steam purely on the "but it is DRM" platform. Avoiding that word is natural, heck, even GOG does it with their marketing spiel. Unsurprisingly every now and then their CD - key policy gets questioned as a conflict with that statement. But the "no-DRM" was vital in their marketing strategy. Not for the actual benefits is might or might not give to gamers, but simply because it was good marketing. "No copy protection" simply doesn't have the same ring to it.
True plus they couldn't say no copy protection since some games here still have their copy protection like Ultima 6, the worlds of ultima 1+2 and 7 still have their manual based copy protection in them so if they said "our games have no copy protection" then people will complain that it's not the case like they do when there cd keys.
But I agree that the no DRM thing is a good marketing ploy as it helps GOG stand out from other Digital retailers since others while having games that have no DRM in them will also carry ones that do.
Anyway back on topic here, I don't care for the whole "oh steam is evil because it's DRM and so people shouldn't like it" argument, yeah you can not care for Steam and how it works but I don't care for people saying people are wrong for wanting to use it I also will say the same for people who say "oh I don't care about DRM so you shouldn't say anything about it if you don't like it". Honestly people should be free to make there own decisions and honestly not everyone is going to agree with it but that is there right doesn't make someone more right or more wrong.
For example I stopped playing Diablo 3 because of it's always online DRM was just to much of a needless hassle for me to deal with since I mainly play single player and don't really care for multiplayer save for a few instances, and so when asked about the game I simiply say "no I don't play it anymore" and give the DRM as the reason why yet I get assulted by people telling me "Oh well I have no issue and yadda, yadda so I think your just being rediculas about it" which if I am totally honest is what is really rediculas.
As for Steam, for me I do use Steam, do I love it hell no but I don't love(love in this case being devoted to the point of almost blind loyalty) any digital store GOG included, if I can avoid using it I will mainly because I don't care to have to load up a client each time I want to play and while I do love the auto update feature and the community feature is nice I can live with out it(the community feature) if it meant that I wasn't tied to the client like I was and had a more sensible offline mode but I will get a game there if they have the better deal, save for older games of course mainly because quality assurance and compatibility of those titles are left to the developer/rights holder on Steam and honestly there not going to bend over backwards to make sure a old game runs right on a newer machine.
Now that is just me and my opinon on the subject and I don't think or feel anyone else needs to share that same line of thought, but I will never tell anyone that them just buying things from Steam is wrong or wanting said title on Steam is wrong either so long as they aren't going "I just want it on steam and to hell with anywhere else",do I agree with it no because I'm all for competition and feel that a variety of options makes for a better market for us as consumers.
Now Steamworks is one thing I can't stand forcing someone to use Steam or any other "service" like Origin and GFWL irregardless of where you buy it is silly I think things like that should be optional if you buy a game on said service then yeah,do I like it no and I feel if that is going to happen then it I think it should only happen if you buy it from their store i.e. if you buy from Steam then the Steam version is will use Steamworks, Windows Live Marketplace GFWL, Origin then well Origin that gives people a chance to buy where they want and not be tied to something they really don't want will that happen, no but still I feel that should be the case though. Again that is just my opinion.
