I hear what you're saying. Funny enough, Evil Genius was one of the games that really raised my DRM ire. I have the game on CD, have had it for years (and yes, it's funny and awesome). I just about lost my mind when it wouldn't work anymore because something flagged my legitimate copy of the game as pirated :-/ Finally solved that problem by getting it on Steam.Personally, I don't mind buying a game. I'd like to say it's because it's the 'right thing to do' but honestly it's more selfish then that. I like gaming therefore I'm going to support the companies that provide games I enjoy. I also like very old games that aren't easy to obtain anymore. Thank goodness for Steam, they've brought back old classics like Evil Genius, X-Com, etc and I'm more then happy to drop some money on them to relive that experience.Personally, I understand the need for DRM... but in so many cases it hinders legitimate customers while really doing very little to prevent piracy. Take Spore for example. I really look at EA distrustfully after that mess and it would take something serious to consider buying another game from them.And yes, I paid for Torchlight, it was worth it.
