It still amazes me how some are so pro-DRM. I could see some here arguing that a required internet connection is good for society, the economy and the environment (as some have pointed out already). They must have been brainwashed by their governments or something, as I have pointed out a perfect alternative which would still use Steam; and works almost exactly the same way, but does not require an internet connection; and which has been used successfully; in which a vast majority of users approved (even over Steam-required internet). Someone tried to say it wasn't the same, even though it is exactly the same; just the requirement of internet is only needed to download patches with an account on Steam. This gives consumer choice to use internet or to not use it, to get a patch; they are not forced to by the company. This is the principle why people disagree; because we do think companies should do what they can be battle the over-growing problem of PC Game Re-sale that is causing tremendous havoc. If you approve of Steam-required internet, then you must approve of Ubisoft required constant-internet. If steam threw out there that it is required you ride your bike for an hour to play the game, some would say it is the greatest thing ever.
