All this live services shit, I'll buy in two years when it maybe finally looks like an actual game.
That is exactly the way to go. I'm not even advocating full boycotts but anyone who is against GaaS and who wants to send publishers a message needs to vote with their wallets by buying bundled (GOTY/Gold/Definitive/whatever) or at least substantially more complete versions of a game.
It's the only power we have to let them know that it's not cool to release what is effectively a beta that can be continuously tinkered with as they please for many months or years even.
