You are not the TC, i did not quote you. Therefore you are not who i was talking to.

Also i hardly putting words in your mouth. If i was actually replying to you it would be more accurate to say "stop putting letters in my fingers"


My apologies. I was mistaken.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

No it's not, it's a store. If I can play a game I purchased from Steam, not through Steam, and without Steam installed, how exactly is it DRM?

Steamworks is DRM. Steam=/=Steamworks.


You have to replace files to play a game purchased through Steam without Steam installed. Steamworks is a development assistance kit, Steam is digital distribution and DRM.

No, you don't. If I download said DRM free game on Steam (such as SS2) right now, do whatever I want with it (lets say put it on an external), completely wipe my computer and reinstall Windows, transfer the game back, I can play it. Not doing anything.

GOG, Amazon, GMG, Gamestop, and a bunch of other sites have downloaders that you can install the game through. Are those DRM? No.
