I still sort of do.
I wish PC gaming never got into this DRM hole.

Now its likely I could never play my games again in 50 years.
Whereas I can still pull out my old intelivision and play that.

Driving to the store or waiting for your game to ship is a hassle. Installing the game from 3-4 DVDs is even worse.

Not a reason not to like steam. You are guaranteed your games if steam ever goes offline for good.

In my mind, a game will always be around, even if its just through piracy. As long as the "DRM" is not online only then the game won't disappear. I'm not worried about that and really wouldn't give a crap that I'd be pirating a game I had to play it.

Because backing up and cracking games is trivial on PC. Not to mention the fact that they can't uninstall your games.

No, hardware failure does a good job of that.
