Steam, if you consider that DRM.

DRM isn't something you consider if it is or not...

Anyway, thanks.

well depends on how broad a category you put DRM into actually. it's not black and white. Steam is a platform, the ultimate edition requires it so it's not stand alone. To some that's a feature giving you benefits of the platform (achievements, leaderboards etc) to others it's not wanted and a negative to be tied to an account so they call it DRM.

I already own this game on steam from a cheap sale, but I bought this edition hoping it was stand alone, my mistake but that's because I didn't read up on it I just impulse bought it. So I am keeping this unopened for a gift for someone.

No, it is DRM.
Some people might not mind it, but it is still DRM.
If you consider something unwanted and negative DRM then you are doing it wrong.

Servers don't last forever.

Steam has no obligation to you, if you've read their user agreement.

When you buy games off Steam the money you spent literally vanishes.

This game actually doesn't even need Steam to run -- After you download it (or register the code in the retail version), you can just literally copy and paste the installed folder to another computer. No Steam is ever required.

A lot of Indie games on Steam actually work this way.

Phoning home to a server in any way after buying a game is the definition of DRM! Call it Steam or whatever you want, but it is DRM.

No DRM "after you download it or register the code?" That is like saying something is free after you pay for it.
