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.

When did they get screwed over?

Everyone got an apology, a free game and still play the game they bought.


They got screwed over when they could not play the game they paid for. They got screwed over when EA removed features from said game to try to handle the server load and yet failed miserably. They got screwed over when EA said that the "always online DRM" was actually a requirement since Sim City was a MMO. They got screwed over when EA forces "always online DRM" when it was proven that the game can be played offline perfectly, without social features.
