Is it fair to assume most of the moaning over DRM heavy games come from people who would just otherwise pirate a game? They claim it messes with their systems, causes vulnerabilities, allows companies to "spy" on them or steal data, bit coin mine ect ect yet most other gamers seem happy or have no issues with these games. Is it just a vocal minority of butthurt pirates? What is going on here?
A good example of such use of technology and unjustified anger it seems to be causing is the Steam launch of ABZÛ
which apparently contains
Denuvo, an anti theft technology that is integrated into the game (which by the way, other than the claims from a few vocal people you have no real way of knowing it's even there). I have never once heard of Denuvo until this game title.
Another example is of course Uplay by Ubisoft. I have never once had issues with Uplay, yet time and time again anytime Ubisoft launches a title the forums are filled with angry anit-Uplay rants. Maybe I'm old school or maybe it's because I'm not cheap, or maybe it's just a generational thing (gen X'r here), but I have no issues with purchasing games legitimately. I know I have heard of people pirating as a form of "trial" and I think this is partially why Steam created the refund system for games, but it honesty leaves me feeling a bit like maybe it's not just the "industry" that sucks, but the players as well. It's like some secret war going on I must be completely oblivious too. Am I wrong about this?
