Today I wanted to play Beat Saber. Unfortunately, Steam had updated it without telling me.

NBD, I'll just downgrade. But wait, old versions of games are capped to 100KB/s downloads. I don't have time for that.

NBD again, I'll just get an older copy of the game and install it over my new one. This works! Thanks internet.

But wait! The author of the main unofficial mod framework has added Anti-Piracy measures, and refuses to function on my altered version of the game.

TL;DR: I can't play a game that I paid for because of DRM and the fact that some open source author decided to put even more DRM.
