Speaking of "renting" games. I feel that too. I bought Civilization III Gold Edition through the internet. When I got it I could only get 3 reactivation codes, after that I had to buy it again. That was very disappointing, now I dont have it anymore, yet I paid for it. I really miss that game. This means that if you change hardware in your computer, you need to reinstall it, so this basically means that if you change hardware in your computer more than 3 times, you need more activation codes and you need to buy it again. I was so disappointed when I could not reinstall it again, I sat there and thought about the cash I gave them.
