Despicable Attituded Towards the Customer

Another opportunity to highlight how the customer has been screwed through this game. Well, at least in the past.

1. Microsoft changed one of their DRM security programs which prevented me from playing Civilization IV. The makers of Civilization refused to issue an update to fix this problem.

2. In a moment of weakness, I bought Civilization V. In reading the Terms of Service (TOS), I decided not to accept. Guess what, they didn’t give you any option to return the game for a refund. I also complained to the seller, but they refused to take a return even with the TOS rejected. So if they are NOT willing to issue a refund if you reject their TOS, that would seem to promote piracy – the very things these companies claim to want to prevent. This is very deplorable behavior by the sellers.

All companies selling products with a TOS should be required to issue the customer a refund if they decline to accept the TOS.
