Always Online: A Dark Future For Single Player

The Paranoid Gamer writes: "Players may notice that games these days invariably seem to come with some form of DRM (Digital Rights Management). The most common of which we see in this day and age is a form of DRM which requires a player to be always online. Always online is used even in single player games, often causing issues such as latency problems or even outright preventing you from playing should you not be able to connect to the servers." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's funny, I bought diablo 3 and still have not been able to play it due to the DRM as I don't even have Internet offered in my area.

For anyone wondering I'm on a cell in a coffee shop

the article is paranoia
majority of all single player games will have no DRM

If it makes its way to consoles, you can consider me a classics gamer from that point on.

i've come to terms with the fact these kind of drm systems may increase in future.

and my terms are, include this kind of drm in your game, and i don't buy your game.
simple as that.
