I bought Fallout 3, cause it's one of the few titles, which do not use DRM and limited online activations.
BAM! I wasn't able to install it because I had "drive emulation tools" on my PC.... or at least that's what SecuRom claimed.
Except for an old Nero version, there is no virtual drive, or CD copy software on my PC.
Still, I couldn't install it until I did some research on the support site. So... I had to copy the install folder on my HDD and install it from there.
Fine, took me longer, but it worked.
Then I couldn't start the damn game. SecuRom wouldn't let me.
So I installed a Fallout 3 patch and tried it again. Nothing...
Then I found out I had to install the patch for SecuRom and then install the Fallout 3 patch.... ok... duh... but it still wouldn't start.
Finally I found out I could neither start is from DVD, nor by the launcher. The only way for me to play it, was to start the exe file directly.
When I got that whole crap done, it was already late... too late to actually play the game, cause to buy games, I need money and therefore, I have to go to work...
