    Yes, we do, it's called either getting the game from GOG or cracking the DRM. EULA/TOSs be damned. We don't have to tolerate garbage DRM.

    i know it 's a hot garbage, but many people, me included want all pc game on STEAM, and many of them still use DENUVO.

    And just forgot: we get game on steam also for achievements, while this feature is assent on GOG.

    I smell some hypocrisy people around here. SMH.

    See? I did buy some games that I really liked thanks to downloading pirate games. Nothing's wrong with that. It is getting old.

    If I get a pirate game and:
    1- I enjoy the game;
    2- it's sold for a reasonable price in a package that includes all DLC (for games that have those);
    3- doesn't have obnoxious DRM (meaning anything with Denuvo, uPlay, or exclusive to Origin is out);
    then I purchase the game. I have over a thousand games on my Steam account, and about 500 more on my GOG account.

    BTW, one of my requirements before I purchase a game I didn't pirate is that it's either DRM-free or its DRM has been cracked already. I'll never purchase any game with a sizable offline or solo component where I might be prevented from installing or playing it if the dev or publisher goes out of business and is forced to take down the authorization servers.

    It's somehow cathartic to being able to remove DRM from games you buy. Who cares if the companies get mad?

    Really? CPY Just cracked Assassins Creed Odeyssy for the PC last week. That game used Denuvo. There is absolutely nothing that can't be cracked out there if there is a strong enough will to do it. Humanity is clever. Sure they stopped Voski, but it's not like he's the only human being on the planet that can figure it out. Often times, the more they go after the hackers the more the hackers develop systems and methods that makes prosecuting piracy even more difficult. The movie industry has learned this the hard way.

    Only if I bought them used. New I don't mind, as that helps support whatever particular series.

    THAT'S WEIRD, usually devs remove DENUVO after that specific game got cracked, just checked the steam page, but DENUVO's still there and we still have to agree EULA, why?

    Not if I liked the game.
    I do regret most of my Vita purchases though, I ended up only playing a few of them through.
