So far you have not provided any other advantages for offline-only, other than the fact its exempt of "DRM".If you would have bought the offline-and-online version like me, Ancalagon and countless others then please stop defending online-only. DRM that affects paying customers is indefensible.
I find your views quite selfish, while some people actually want to build up and be part of a community, you'd rather let us live in the past. Maybe not all games need to be online-only, but there are many games that do benefit. There is a place for it and no one is forcing you to buy those games.
Now this is going completely off topic and I'm rather reluctant to give my input, but I feel I need to answer this;Fivel and I were debating this point above. I dont believe it is our problem, anymore than the risk of theft which a bottle store faces is my problem. That the publishers make you believe it is your problem is an example of externalization - the publishers have led you to believe that piracy is your problem, so you must deal with the consequences (ie DRM).
Crime is our problem. It's why we have insurance, It's why we have high walls with electric fences, its why we have locks on our doors. We have people allocated to deal with the problem (aka police), but in the end they can't stop ALL the crime in the world and it is our duty to educate your kids as to why crime is bad and educate ourselves to not become a victim.
There is a saying from Ronin: You are either part of the problem, part of the solution or part of the landscape.
You can stand on your little pedestal and bitch about DRM all day long, but unless the problem is solved, it will remain. Again, no one is being forced to buy these products.
I'm a firm believer that online only enhances our gaming experience and I don't think anyone has given a good reason why online-only is not the future (other than donning tinfoil hats and harping on about how bad "DRM" is). So therefor its clear your issues lie with Uncle Sam and how they plan to dominate the world using the information they collected about you and not with what services get provided for the money paid.
