It's not about having the Internet or not, it's about not wanting to use it for single-player, because why should we?Who the f**** uses a computer with no internet connection nowdays? I'm from a 3rd world country, but even here if someone has a PC, he has internet also.
And this is exactly why I won't bother with it. I don't want to have my every online thing tracked. Have you ever heard of a funny little thing called Privacy? just because others choose to throw it away doesn't mean I am going too.You're like the people who don't believe in birth control, so obviously don't choose to use it. Problem with that is, you're like 1%, while the other 99% goes on with their everyday life and have no problem with it.
You're going to have to raise a lot more of people with your mindset.
Sure, they might have lost 1 person's business - but they picked up 5 more that would've otherwise been pirated. Plus they get to track you and your habits that also translate to more money for them.
As you can clearly see, the benefits outweigh the risks (of losing you).
