    (presume there is a steam-free version of goo, hence redundant post, unless there isn't, in which case wog isn't drm free )

    EDIT new one:

    Neverwinter Nights 2 as of latest patch. Game installs with DRM, patch removes.

    Re: List of DRM-Free PC Games

    If I remember rightly, the PC version of Prototype doesn't have any form of DRM - doesn't even need the CD inserting while playing.

    Edit: What was the situation on Command and Conquers First Decade cd, too? Last I remember, some of the games would run with the FD disc, while others needed the specific game CD.

    Re: List of DRM-Free PC Games

    I fail to see why you posted those links.

    My assumption is the OP is talking about Mainstream games. (with the exception of GOG, which has also already been mentioned).
    Insert signature here.

    Re: List of DRM-Free PC Games

    One correction to a previous post - Galactic Civilisations 2 should not be considered DRM-free since any patches you apply (after 1.0X) require online activation, with all the issues that entails. This applies to other Stardock games also.

    Genuinely DRM-free games are offered by:

    Shrapnel Games (Dominions 3 plus various wargames)
    Basilisk Games (Eschalon CRPG)
    Spiderweb Software (Geneforge and Avernum RPGs - note that only CD purchases are DRM-free, downloads are locked to a specific PC)

    The adventure game Rhiannon - Curse of the Four Branches (£7.99 + £1.85 shipping via Amazon Marketplace) is a recent DRM-free release (if you liked The Longest Journey, then this will probably appeal).

    Re: List of DRM-Free PC Games

    Trine comes with 'copy-protection' though this is removed by patch 1.06..
    Apparently, (I'm having trouble confirming it) STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl shipped with SecuROM but this was removed in version 1.004, though it may still have a disk check...

    http://reclaimyourgame.com/index.php...=article&id=45
    This is actually a list of games including SecuROM v7 BUT titles that are crossed through indicate games that have had the SecuROM patched out. It also gives the patch version required.

    I echo Kalniel's call for a definition of what we are treating as DRM here... A disk check? Having to enter in a cd-key? Anything more than simply putting the game in and installing it? Some people might consider Steam to be DRM...

    Speaking of Trine I bought it not long ago from D2D with no DRM included, no patch required.

    Possibly because digital versions such as D2D and Steam probably download a prepatched version of the game... My Steam version didn't explicitly download any patches, but it had plastered all over the news feed that version 1.06 removed the copy protection...
