Games "Why has the SimCity story gone away? It's a good question. And the answer for it reveals much about how both the games industry, and the games journalism industry, work." Telling - not just for the game journalism, but all of it. As a sidenote, you can always rely on Rock Paper Shotgun to bring the best gaming news. Under-appreciated gem of online news reporting.

Poor car analogies an argument it doesn't make.

As I said previously, it like going to see and play or a film and then asking for your money back after not liking it. Or buying a book by its cover and then wondering why it wasn't as good of a read as you expected.

A car analogy isn't acceptable, but a movie or a book analogy is? I don't understand your logic.

Like it or not, these are games and they are entertainment. The only way that you get screwed over if you don't actually get to play/see/read what you paid for.

Aaand that's what I've been talking all along. People are buying single-player games and they instead get forced multiplayer?

Nevermind. I already said what I feel about the issue and when you insist that things are fine as-is there's no point in arguing about it any longer.
