yep it still happens but lets face it it the real reason for the decline of traditional pc gaming is the lack of quality.
Id rather play a more or less bug free console version than having to pray the pc version works and even if it does chances are good I wont b playing it at full capacity on my pc. Even if i could afford every knew and improved pc & accessory I still wouldnt b able to play some of em full out. IMO when they started thinking it was ok to release bug ridden titles they signed their own death warrant.

Multiplayer modes are the way to go, if you don't put them in your game then why would people want to buy it when a lot of people know how to get it for free.

The last PC games I bought were:

Half Life 2 (years and years ago, for counterstrike)
CoD2 (for the multiplayer)
CoD4 (for the multiplayer)

That's because these guys are heavily involved in the games industry and the business and politics behind it.

Some games have ridiculous DRM that does nothing, and some games are just overpriced. (Even console games-all of them, are too much these days, but besides the point). $50 game with DRM that is annoying and doesn't stop pirates, or $0 game with no pesky DRM?
