but I could live with DRM that needs online activation but allows unlimited offline play.

The funny thing is, back then we couldn't. (And it wasn't so much the online activation part as the fact that you were allowed to install the fucking thing a grand total of three times, and then had to BEG the fucking publisher to be allowed to install it more.)

And so the lines shift. Ten years from now, most people will look back at the Xbone fiasco and go "Huh. Really? That's what people got upset about? Used games and having to be online?"

Also, ten years from now, Will Wright will still be a fucking cockbag.


There was also the issue of Spore being completely underwhelming compared to the original promise. I think that year Will Wright won the Peter Molyneux award for grand misrepresentation, surprisingly beating out Peter Molyneux.
