Dont know how many of you have experience of this piece of shit drm but my recent experience have resulted in my pledging to never own a game sporting the gfwl logo ever again....

I think i mentioned at christmas that i had bought darksouls for pc which i was really looking forward to playing due to the difficulty level, however after 1 previous game return due to 'product key already used error' i bought a replacement copy only to spend the last two weeks wrestling with gfwl only to finally concede defeat to the 'xlive.dll is missing error' annoying thing is having raised a ticket with microsoft they basically fobbed me off that this was a developer problem.... namco cannot offer a fix so therefore i have a useless dvd that isnt even much use as a coater!!
Fortunately buying from amazon i can again return for a full refund.

So can anyone recommend a good game (any genre considered) which is going to challenge me & engage me for more than 4hrs playthrough, i am looking at secret world or guild wars 2 or maybe sleeping dogs, needless to say i dont want anything remotely connected to gfwl.

yeah GFWL has a lot of major bugs and have been able to sort a few for some m8s involving ports, firewall and registry but that error i'm not sure. could be an install issue so then need to download, reinstall as admin and make sure the whole thing is then there. But for some games it's just hell to try get working properly.

if you need a hard game.. with lots of gameplay.. might be hard. Nowadays most of the interesting ones seem to be too easy or too short or both. but lets see..
What about S.T.A.L.K.E.R shadow of chernobyl + clear sky + call of pripyat ? or FEAR 1 and 2 ? (3 wasn't that good imho). Sin Episodes emergence. Quake 4. Pariah. (these three pretty easy though).
Deus ex Human revolution. Singularity. Sniper Elite V2 or Sniper Ghost warrior at hard dif.

These use gamespy or steam mostly.

EDIT : Mass Effect trilogy ?
