I have been away from pc games for a long time. I have heard in passing about the insanity that has been plaguing some pc games with always on drm and such. Have they pulled the drm out of games like assassins creed and diablo and sims city?

It's better than ever before. The stupid BS DRM that some companies have put into their games never last very long. GFWL is also no longer around so that's good news too.

AC no longer has online requirement as well as sim city.

diablo 3 remains online-only.

oh and GFWL was never officially shut down.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

PC gaming seems to be on the rise, although drm is still around. Especially for the flashier titles.

Games for Windows Live.
Very intrusive DRM.
Constantly D/Cs you in the middle of the game
Slow as well.

Honestly, I'm not surprised people are boycott or pirate games that have GFWL.

GFWL is just another online service like steam but absolute crap in comparison.

there's no workaround for always-on with D3 but you shouldn't worry about servers going away seeing as D2 servers have been on for 14 years and counting... we're not really talking about random EA annual release #241 whose servers shut down on console after 1-2 years.

I'm only interested in RPG's, turn based games, and adventure games.
There hasn't been this many good titles in those genre's since the late 90's. So I'm quite happy.
