As you do with GOG.
Lucumo: Uh-oh, there is a giant difference between an all-purpose browser (which you can choose) created by an unrelated third party and a client forced onto you by the store's owner.
Mawthra: Like I said... it's a mental/technical difference... still need a "piece of software" to log in and download your games... you can try and beat around the bush, but that's just a fact
As precice as you can say a lootbox is gambling as soon as you can't produce another one in the game world without paying real life money (i.e. "is it a consumable?"), the question of "is it DRM" boils down to:
Are offline installers available and after installation does the game work without internet or does only need another server created by said offline installers without the need of a foreign infrastructure?
If no: DRM.
The problem with GOG is it does not know what DRM is with all this dongled shit on their site and at the same blurbing it everywhere. Basically, does it have a kill switch?
Oh and on topic: They probably just forgot to implement DRM yet or don't bother with people zipping up their shit and hope it will run on another machine. As does Steam. Again, you can't be sure if it runs on another machine without INSTALLERS. It may be, or it ain't, either way that time you waste trying that out is already on the path of cracking it and those fat companies don't give a shit about that.. because they can't. They rather spend their time to sell kids one more loot box.
See as I brought the topic around to the beginning with my closing statement? That's some school education gone with the program shit right there. Peace.
