While I've thankfully never been affected myself, there's quite a negative stigma surrounding DRM in games. Some of it is overblown, as is tradition, but there are legitimate concerns about poorly implemented DRM causing performance issues, crashes, as well as making the game in question potentially problematic to play on the next generation of PCs.

With that in mind, you might be glad to hear that GOG and Bethesda have now partnered up to release a bunch of great games with absolutely no DRM. First and foremost, the entirety of the Dishonored series (Dishonored, Dishonored 2 and Dishonored: Death of the Outsider) now not only has no DRM on GOG, but is also on a rather deep discount. So if you're a fan of sneaking around and you haven't played Dishonored just yet, this would be a pretty good time to give it a try.

The modern Wolfenstein series has also ditched DRM, though only for the two older games: The New Order and The Old Blood. Considering that the newest Wolfenstein: Youngblood is kind of mediocre at the best of times, the fact that only its predecessors are DRM-free is actually not that big of a deal. Much like Dishonored, the Wolfenstein series is 70% off until February 24th, so if you're in the mood for some surprisingly atmospheric action, they might be worth picking up.

Have fun, and I'll leave you with a gameplay trailer for my beloved Dishonored. It may be old at this point, but it really does hold up!
