SimCity 5 (or as EA would have it, just SimCity)?  One of the games I was most looking forward to?

No offline play.  No saving your game.  Sharply reduced city sizes.

Lots of nice detail, but you can't do anything with it.  It doesn't seem that it's truly a SimCity game at all.  But since it's taken the name, that's death for any genuine sequel.

So fuck you, Electronic Arts.

1 Pardon me, I seem to have dropped my jaw on the floor around here somewhere.

Fuck EA, indeed.

3 At least they recognize that the open online world will be full of griefers, and offer you private and friends-only "regions". If they dropped the always-online requirement for the private multi-city regions, I'd be willing to play. If they did that and allowed offline saves, I'd be eager to play. And if they allowed self-hosted servers with access controls and mods, I'd wonder what they slipped into my medication.

4 Y'know, the SimCity Original Flavor was one of the first three games I ever played on my 286 (Wing Commander and Civ I were the other two).  Since then, I've pretty much upgraded my computer whenever a SimCity sequel came out. 

Not this time.  Never.  Even if it does look great.

7 Yep.  They're so cute when they try to act like humans!

8 Sim City and Wing Commander took up many a cold winter evening back in the day. Now I look back and wonder how I ever had the time, as I never seem to have any these days lol
