How ironic that the game is called “liberation” when it’s imprisoning your money.

even if you own it already

Nowadays you don’t buy games and therefore you do not own games. You get a license which can be revoked at any time. Keep that in mind when you “buy” stuff with restrictive DRM on those platforms.

Beat me to it. Exactly. If you have games on Steam, Uplay, Origin or hell, on anything that isn’t GOG or itch.io, you more than likely don’t own jack.

At least Steam has easily circumventable DRM, but many developers use additional third party DRM.

I bought lots of Steam games. Every game I played is archived into a folder on my home server to be recovered – for example if Steam pulls something like the “update” where they removed songs in GTA: San Andreas to which Rockstar didn’t have the rights anymore.
