Finally, worst DRM ever. Hopefully they don't screw over people that bought stuff on GFWL only and don't have steam keys. This makes me glad I waited for Minerva's Den, hopefully it comes out on Steam.


It probably will. They added Steam achievements that relate to Minerva's Den for Bioshock 2.

It was always such wasted potential. Games For Windows Live could have been something really cool

I think it started out really cool - it allowed Microsoft to bring over exclusive Xbox 360 games to PC by providing them an environment where they could make as much money as they do peddling games to the console plebs. It was revolutionary at the time; completely unheard of behavior for one of the console manufacturers to bring over killer apps to another platform.

Shame PC gamers whined about it so much. I suspect if it were better received we would have seen Halo 3, Gears of War 2, Viva Pinata 2, etc. on PC by now. But they've clearly decided to withhold them from us because PC gamers refused to embrace GFWL and releasing them on Steam isn't as profitable as just keeping them Xbox 360 exclusives.

Sigh...

I think we'll finally see the Halo trilogy release on Steam now.

Maybe if the implementation wasn't terrible, PC gamers wouldn't have whined so much about it.

Aside from the encrypting game saves I never had a problem with it.

Of course if you remembered to back up your GFWL folder alongside your game saves the encryption wasn't a problem.

I've been a PC gamer for many years and have had my fair share of problems across all the services and the DRMs. GFWL never stuck out as one that was particularly troublesome.

It's funny seeing people glad that GFWL but do you guys realize a crapload of games exclusive to GFWL aren't going to be able to be bought now? That sucks big time.

Yes, a company that is interested in profits won't release those games on Steam.

Oh, what am I saying; of course you don't.

Which Xbox exclusive title was ever brought over to GFWL? I don't think it was ever Microsoft's intention to release any of their AAA Xbox exclusive titles over to PC.
