Just a thought, but has RPS ever considered giving games numerical scores based solely/mostly upon consumer friendliness? I'm not generally a fan of ratings, but given the increasing influence that Metacritic scores seem to have over publishers, it might serve as a small incentive for them to have less severe DRM and be a little more honest in general (especially if a few other websites followed suit).

You could subtract points for infractions such as DRM (probably with a sliding scale for severity), multiplayer games not allowing for private servers and lying about/misrepresenting the game while awarding points for things like mod support and comprehensive graphical settings.
