AnimalMother117: First, I thought that CoD: World at War (pretty much the newest CoD I want on PC) didn't have DRM, but some reviewers were mentioning that it required Punkbusters... I think... anyway, all I wanna do is play single player if I come across a cheap copy.
PunkBuster is an anti-cheat tool for multiplayer. It is not DRM and has no effect on single player. You can usually uninstall it after a game installs it (or cancel the installation prompt if it offers one) and then use single player without further nagging.

AnimalMother117: I was on SecuRom's website and they said that they supported Medieval II. I thought they were talking about the X-pack only, but while doing a search on my PC I did find something about Far Cry 2 (weird in the sense that it was the only version I own, which is my GOG one). This one I'm fairly certain is nothing, but if anyone could put paranoia to rest, that'd be cool.
Many games have widely varying DRM across various regions and re-releases. Having a game listed on a DRM website does not necessarily mean all retail releases of that game use that DRM (or even any DRM at all).

DRM-free versions will sometimes write registry keys that mention a DRM by name but are not actually DRM data. This was sometimes done for purposes like showing custom-themed messages for protection errors. Similarly, some games include a fake version of some EXE or DLL that the game called for at some point. Several GOG games have such harmless remnants.

Cool, thanks a lot.
