I was much more intrigued by Alyssa Milano putting things in her mouth.

Lol, you guys, it's not like we all live together and our opinions affect one another. Bruticis is always a bigot, just put him on your ignore list if you don't want to read it.

And risk missing out on my random crap dumps in the steam thread? Doesn't seem likely, piggies got eat.

I'm not going to admit I stared at that gif for a good 10 seconds.

Not that I care, but there's a distinction to be made here:

 

The process of buying a game through Humble is not without restrictions, as Bruticis points out. It's all still held behind a gate. 

 

The files themselves contain no DRM. Once you download them, you can burn a thousand copies of it if you like. They are using a gated process to allow you access to a DRM-free game. It's all in how it is worded.

 

You wouldn't say that a store selling DRM-free games is a form of DRM. It's a process of payment and distribution.

In case anyone's interested, The Sixth Gun was in a Groupees and I read it. It was pretty good.

That is a decent mix of introductions for a penny. The only way you could get it cheaper is by pirating it. Y'know, DRM-free copies. ;)

So after you pay, you can access your files at anytime without ANY restriction such as a login, right?

Well, yes, that's what FP was trying to explain earlier. You can log in, download your files, archive them to a disc, and you never have to log in again for any reason, unless you want to buy more things from that site.

Yeah, man. Download it. Put it on a stack of floppies and stack them in the corner for all eternity.

You wouldn't say that a store selling DRM-free games is a form of DRM. It's a process of payment and distribution.

Technically you cared enough to post a reply but if that's the case you are trying to make in terms of defining DRM, how would you buy digital items online without a "gate" such as an account & password from a practical standpoint? How would a store like Humble or GoG know who has purchased what without such "gate." Again, anyone is welcome to download the DRM-free game once and burn it onto a DVD and never sign-in again to the account. Even forums like CAG requires one to create an user account to post here. 
 
You are correct in that I wouldn't say that a store selling DRM-free games is a form of DRM. I also would argue that Humble or GoG is also a store selling DRM-free games. Payment is just processed online and the product is distributed online because you are buying a digital item. 
 
The problem with PC games is that brick-and-motor stores have a have essentially given up the PC gamer market to digital storefronts like Steam. So even if you want to go back to the "Good-old-days" of "CD and floppy" with no serial keys, no publisher or developer is going back to that. Especially when there is absolutely no repercussion for pirating software.
 
Anyway, its a semantic issue and I was focusing just on the games themselves hosted on Humble/GOG being DRM-free. Maybe someone else can think of a practical way of organizing one's digital account with purchased software without the use of account login system.

Then you'd be fucked. That's the beauty of DRM-free!

Envelopes, cash, and a CD.
