As I'm sure most people realize, the discussion regarding Steam is flawed because the two sides are arguing two different concepts. Most Steam users on this board are arguing that it is not a form of DRM, but a service; most anti-Steam users are arguing against the concept of DRM (to a degree, I don't mean to put words into the mouths of other users, but I also don't want to get into a lengthy debate about "what exactly we mean" sort of thing.) So just as an exercise, I think we should describe what DRM we feel is "proper." I don't intend for this thread to become a flame war, so try to point out what YOU define DRM as, and how much is "excessive." Don't argue with others and try to "prove" that your opinion is superior. All opinions are valid here, and there is no need to justify yourselves to others, or respond to someone who wants you to justify your views. EDIT: For this poll, to avoid conflict, this ONLY APPLIES TO SINGLE-PLAYER COMPONENTS OF GAMES.
