SimCity finally getting offline mode.

Portal 1 didn't have multiplayer. Half Life's multiplayer games are also considered as a seperate entities to the main series too... If that counts. :/
EDIT: I might also buy SimCity now that it has an offline option... It's still pretty damn expensive though and never seems to go on sale.
Not changing sig till we get a sequel to Freedom Fighters.
I'm torn actually. I'm still pretty pissed at EA pulling this stunt in the first place. There was NO reason to force it on people like they did, and they've bull*****ed us the entire way about how it "has" to be online and stuff. I don't want to support companies that pull crap like that.
The term "Pirating" is the strongest in your case.
Or maybe even "Robin Hood-ing", enjoying something without paying for it / fueling a series of terrible business decisions.

You are correct - for some reason, that one slipped my mind a bit. Half-Life's MP was through a separate .exe, but was still on the disc, so I count it as the same game. Several games back in that time period used separate .exes for SP or MP. Some of the Jedi Knight games are other examples of the same thing - separate .exe for each, but still both parts of the same game.
Portal 1 is a valid point tho. I missed that one.

well it did make sense to a point i mean since 2000 you connected to neighboring cities and i think it was simcity 4 where you can build more than one city/borough
so the thought was well if they liked that why not have it where everyone can play together
Problem was they didnt learn from the sims online failure in the fact that people dont play sim games to play together
of course i think sims online would of worked if you played it like a sims game and not just make one character like they did ........
