Games So, SimCity has been released - the fifth instalment in this venerable series of fantastic games. However, just as everyone suspected, the game has been completely ruined by the always-online DRM. So much so, in fact, that Amazon has ceased selling the game. Update: and it's only getting worse - EA has suspended all marketing efforts for SimCity, and has asked third parties to do the same. Wow.

Seriously is there any series that hasn't plunged on a downward trajectory under EA once their original developers have been bought?

Not even talking DRM. Gameplay either falters or becomes more and more generic with time.

One close to my heart is Mass Effect, Syndicate and Burnout also.
