Reminds me so much of the "Direct2Drive" Oblivion days.  No OBSE possible for games bought on that service either.  Now, "Direct2Drive" is a ghost of the past.  Consumers made the choice.

This is untrue. When your PS Plus sub lapses, you lose access to your games. Unless that's changed recently.

I play Fallout 4 and Skyrim on Game Pass and it definitely isn't a streaming service. Like Steam, the game is on your computer until you decide to delete it/it gets removed from Game Pass. The only time a game wont get removed is when its a game owned by Microsoft. That includes games made by Bethesda. So if you buy a subscription to Game Pass (and continue to pay it), you essentially own any game made by Microsoft/Bethesda/Obsidian.

"Nexus only exists because the creators of the game allow it to do so. " god i hope you're not a lawyer, because this is a really poor world view.

When people provide essential components of any ecosystem they become partially or wholly liable for those components. It'd be pretty hard at this stage to separate Bethesda's games from the notion of "modding" and it'd be hard to completely ignore an existing ecosystem around mods and modding. And to find culpability with anything MS does is just a stones throw away, the only reason the DA has been asleep on the MS vs people case is because Jobs is dead and fascism and plagues are a bigger problem for the states than rogue software titans.  I don't advocate for suing MS but i was surprised when those kids in the UK managed to get the government to sue Hello Games and was doubly surprised there was an actual result and a glorious era ensued.

The way to less bugs is less modding. So be careful what you wish for, from my perspective removing access to advanced modding will provide that exact goal and it's not a goal I nor anyone at Nexus should want.

took me an entire weekend just to get the game to install on Win10 Pro. I do a lot of work from home, lot of programming etc, so i use vpn's and multiple microsoft identities, that's just a normal part of being a collaborator with multiple companies, but apparently their multinent auth system is garbage over GamePass because they use cross domains that conflict with the gamepass auth, ie; cookie auth domain of other user is used in a remote audit check from GP and returns a generic failure. Took 50 hours to figure that lol >flush all auths. Everything microsoft devs seems to use linear testing, extreme X and extreme Y but never XY. So for somebody who does edge case things a lot it means anything Microsoft touches can easily turn to garbage.  I can barely use any of their products without punching myself in the face, it's all consumer hostile / outdated trash, all of it. I couldn't name a single thing they've done that is even remotely modern or not a pain to use.
