Brick Gamers 44 - Do you feel like 2nd-class?

What do you think? Do modern games make you feel like the gaming company doesn't respect you? Is it a Far Cry (pun not intended) from the glory days of gaming where the customer (or gamer in this case) was placed first as how all companies should be doing and the very idea businesses should be following as per original intention? Or has the excessive 90's and post-Millennium trend caught up in the corporate world which has resulted in the 2000s decade of indulgences by the elite few which in turn resulted in the bottom-level users being short-changed for their investment? With DRM (Digital Rights Management) and today's other anti-piracy measures, even being a legitimate consumer may reward you with rudeness when all you want to do is play the game you purchased legally. So is it worth going straight in the end?
