Man, I totally overlooked this topic until now. Instantly added it to my favourites and up-repped it!
A few additions:
- Bionic Commando
Shure about the German version, but I think every other version too.
- Rogue Warrior
MP needs Steam, but SP runs without any online activation.
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
This was released before THQ sold their soul to Gabe.
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Lets you decide wether to install it with online activation or not. If you go for the DRM'ed installation you don't need the disc in order to play it, but the SP can be installed and played without activation.
- Medal of Honor 2010
Not entirely shure about this one, as I haven't tried it out for myself yet. It's still lying sealed on my shelf, waiting to be unwrapped. But the text on the backside of the case doesn't mention any forced activation. Otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. Registration with EA is only mandatory for online features.
- Overlord 2
Well, it's DRM-free.
- Fallout 3 GotY
The list features only the regular version without the DLCs so far. But the GotY is also DRM-free.
- Velvet Assassin
US and UK versions need Steam. Only the German version is DRM-free. The text on the backside of the case says it needs to be activated online, however, as far as I know that's a mistake.
- The Saboteur
SecuROM, but only disc based.
- Devil May Cry 4
No online activation needed.
- Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X
We all know what happend with H.A.W.X 2, but the first game of the series actually was completely DRM-free.
- Prince of Persia 2008
Has already been mentioned in the thread but is still missing in the list.
The remake from 2008.
- Call of Duty: World at War
At least I think so.
That's it for now. Maybe I can come up with some more later.
- Far Cry 2
German based publisher ak tronic, specialized in re-releasing budget versions for the German market, has a version of FC2 in their "Software Pyramide" lineup which is initially DRM-free. I think even the DLCs are included.
