Why not just make a Kickstarter asking for money so that we can donate to interesting Kickstarters?

COME ON!

So that's another one we can't buy now. The kind of people that would sign a petition to have this game ported to PC are also the same kind of people that would not buy a game because of a crappy service being shoehorned into it. :-\

I think there's already a petition underway to try and persuade them to drop GFWL.

I am a good customer. I buy the games just like they want me to. I've even got a conscience and will ignore sale prices if I see a game that really looks well-made. I'll pay full price even if there are opportunities not to because I appreciate the work these developers have done. I'm the kind of guy that picks up the decked out, waste of money collector's edition because I want them to get rewarded as much as possible for making what I see as a good product.

And now the publishers are ruining that. Forget the rise in piracy, I won't even waste my time doing that anymore. They are making me disinterested in gaming. More often than not, I'll just skip a game entirely. Sim City 5 is a good example. I'm about as big a Sim City fan as you can get. I've been a fan of the series since I was a small child. I love Sim City! I've got no plans to even consider Sim City 5 until the unfair security schemes are removed from it. That's the loss of a customer that really doesn't care about DLC. I'll buy all of it! No questions asked! Just let me own the copy of the game I paid for and don't poke around my business or assume I'm someone I am not.

Games that I want to play are just being ignored because publishers are treating me like a criminal for buying them. I am fully prepared to pay 150 bucks for some titles but a single bit of bad DRM or annoying and intrusive account management services makes me walk away. Not only do I not buy these games. I don't even play them.

It is bad business and it needs to stop. I want to play these games and they want my money. We can both agree on that. Don't ruin a good thing! Pirates certainly aren't having any problems stealing your games and they oftentimes have a better experience than paying customers. I still can't play Arkham City because SecuROM thinks I stole the game. The game that I ignored a 50% off sale for so I could give them the full price out of respect for their work.

Thanks a lot! >:(

Welsh demographic is pretty large and needs to be appealed to.
This is facts.

Why would they have to involve publishers? This is just as valid a way to fund a project as asking some big company for cash. Perhaps even better, since they don't have to share a cut of the profits with anybody else and they don't have to alter their direction for the game because of some marketing department's opinion on what's popular.

It puts a lot more of the risk and onus on the developer, though.

Even though you could argue that publishers have gotten a bit out of control, they do have a place. They are supposed to deal with distributors and customers while the developers focus on the game.
