And 90% of the reviewers haven't even played the game.

There's no one in hell that there are more people excited about playing SimCity than there was D3.

Always online DRM should be an immediate 1 star or less. Unless it's an MMO of course.

What about games that are specifically designed for multiplayer?

Sick burn.

I dunno, has the SimCity franchise sold more than the Diablo franchise?

best part are the 5 star reviews for this game

Got me off my video game addiction!, March 6, 2013

You'd think I'd be mega unhappy like everyone else at the constant waiting and lack of actually being able to play a game I purchased.

Well, you'd be wrong.

The hours upon hours since launch that I haven't been able to log in, whether it be sitting in queues, or server busy messages, or just plain old not working screens, I've managed to do a heap of things that I never do when I'm locked in my man cave playing video games.

I've washed the dishes, the laundry, changed the oil in the car, mopped the floors, dusted, did a spot of gardening, greeted my children who I hadn't really seen since Christmas, walked the dog, asked how my wife's day has been and listened to the entire response, restocked the groceries and many more things! My family has never been happier that they've got a father and husband again.

In fact, I feel like Simcity has given me a new lease on life. This wouldn't have been possible without the seemingly crazy decision to have constant online connections and server side save points even for single player.

So I can only thank EA and Maxis. Your failures have been my rewards. 5 stars!

and yet I have played the game for 60+ hours now. Still a good game!

It's a shame to see what's happened to PC gaming in recent years. My last experience with Sim City was at least a decade ago with Sim City 3000...you were free to build as big a city as you could imagine and you could do so completely offline. Since then, constant annoyances like limited installs, always-online DRM, etc have all but killed the industry; I understand the need to protect against piracy, but punishing legitimate customers isn't a good business model.

There's not a lot of always-online DRM games besides D3 and most F2P games...and of course MP MMO games...

I agree.

"btw, Skyrim came out in 2011 and its now 2013.... nuff said "

And... what does this have to do with SimCity?

You're a glass half-empty kind of guy, huh?

Skyrim was only broken for a few weeks? You know that argument can be used for SimCity, right?
