In the vast majority of livable areas in the world an internet connection is available and affordable (though about 1/2 of those connections don't have high speed yet) and sometimes cheaper than a phone.


Ehh, you might want to go have a look at the Broadband census data, and you'll rapidly reconsider that statement. Not only is it not widely available (not counting beyond-shitty satellite connections that are worse than dial-up) but it is FAR from affordable. In most areas, the CHEAPEST plans are 50 bucks a month. That may not be a lot of money to you, but to quite a lot of people 600 bucks a year is a significant investment.

It's great that you have affordable internet where you live. That doesn't somehow then translate to "Hell, the whole world has cheap, affordable internet!"

Requiring people to always be online for a single player game is fucking horseshit.
