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.

not a broken server, which will be solved in a few days.

What has really ruined the game is that everything in the gameplay is made to force you to cooperate and go online. The maps are too small, they are much smaller than simcity 4's one, and with today's computer, you would expect the other way around, I want to build Paris, not a collection of town that are in its suburbs.
