Your OP makes me wonder if the industry could survive today without the internet, TC? So much of those issues in your list are internet dependent; which is just so sad. :(

I'm not sure I get the reasoning for this topic. Non of what you have mentioned is new or makes any sense. Do you ever post anything positive? As long as I've seen you post its pretty much 99% negative or complaining about optional, small things.

Cheers.

He's now a PC troll. He posted the exact same thing on the PS4 board.(Or at least a similar one, I didn't read it.)
