Because there is ALLOT of elitist people on the forums that need to $hit on GOG to tickle there ego.
Did GOG mess up? Yes. But it is no way worthy of an autistic screech fest equal only to a Resetera user when they see a female game character with breasts bigger than a A cup.
They could form a information campaign and establish a healthy contact with GOG staff and have the problem fixed. But no, they just HAVE to scream and shout and prove THEY are the most anti DRM of tem all.
I don't have any desire to sh*t on GOG. They've provided me with a valuable service over the years and assuming that an understanding can be reached, I don't see why that needs to stop.
However, I strongly suspect that their former strongly pro DRM-free stance is no longer convenient to their business model (I personally couldn't care less whether their previous DRM-free claims were genuine or not, I care about what will happen now and in the future) and rather than going through half-honest attempts to see how much DRM can be pushed (and customers potentially buying games they definitely do not want to buy like this one under false pretenses of them being DRM-free), I'd rather have an honest discussion on the subject matter at this point.
If they gradually want to allow more and more drm-content into games (which seems to be the case, they went from no drm to multiplayer drm to cosmetics drm to drm on significant single-player content), I'd rather they add detailed information about it for each game so that the process is as transparent as possible and customers can decide whether or not to purchase the game in an enlightened way, based on what content is DRM-free.
And if they see a future where they'll be like Steam and not care much about DRM, I'd rather know about that as well. At whatever point they stop caring about it, I'll stop updating my backups to avoid infesting them with DRM and we'll go our separate ways.
Basically, my personal desire is that they stop going through the increasingly difficult mental gymnastics of selling off their entire catalog as 100% drm-free (clearly, that claim just won't happen). now and always and instead that they openly admit that there are an ever increasing amount of nuances to that claim. From there, unencumbered by that increasingly misleading pr claim, they can move to the more tenable position of giving us the proper data for each game (in the state it is currently and also in the state it could potentially be in the future) so that we can be enabled to buy games according to our values.
