Rockstar Games Controversy: Selling Cracked Game Versions

Rockstar Games, the studio behind Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption franchises, has recently come under fire for selling versions of its games with cracks created to remove DRM piracy protection. This practice, which allows the games to be played for free, has led to legal battles and court rulings against studios and publishers in the past.

Bizarre Turn of Events

The latest controversy began when it was discovered that Rockstar Games had been selling versions of its games with cracks dating back to the early 2000s. One example is Max Payne 2, which used a crack created by the group Myth and code for Razor 1911. This discovery was unexpected, as it had been assumed that such incidents were isolated.

Need for Video Game Preservation

The existence of these cracks highlights the need for video game preservation. Many publishers have shown little interest in this area, but groups like VIDEO GAMES and preservation sites such as Digital Archives have emerged to ensure that classic titles are not lost over time.

Instances of Game Preservation

Impact on Gaming Industry

While instances like these might be illegal, they do demonstrate the importance of cracking communities in preserving gaming history and making it accessible to future generations. Developers and publishers could potentially embrace preservation instead of always fighting against it.
