I own nearly every game mentioned in the article except Duke Nukem which I tried as a demo and it would not run on my PC so I skipped it. The walk down memory lane is nice but the future is bleak. As one who refuses to buy into the Securom Online Activation thats all the rage with Developers now, I find myself in a position where I will refuse to pay $50 for a game I'm told I can only install so many times. I will also not allow the Securom root kit on my PC, and although I have found ways around it in the past, its getting harder to do without joining in with what the Pirates have to offer in the way of circumventing the DRM. It seems to me that this push to squeeze the paying customer instead of the pirateers, is going to doom the PC game all together. In 2007 I probably bought more than 10 games at $50 a piece, this year I only bought 2 even though there were many I would have bought if they didn't have securom. I suspect the way things seem to be going, I will probably buy no games in 2009 as it appears nearly every game maker has turned to the root kit and decided its easier to tinkle on the paying customer than the pirates, and they do want to tinkle on someone.
