I dislike companies making me ask nicely to install my games. That said, on the PC it's really a non-issue, because if the company or client ever collapses the community will make sure the games still run. It's similar to Windows changing and people making sure games run on new platforms. Maybe some small games would slip through the cracks, but overall it's taken care of.

The real DRM danger is on consoles, where the closed nature of the platform makes that future less optimistic. Honestly Skyrim is almost more DRM'd on Xbox because every patch and access to every DLC will depend on Microsoft allowing you that access.

And then of course there is the likely future of streaming, where we own nothing and have access to nothing when the company says no or goes away. I will never support that.
