    The point is they lied to everyone about the online functionality. They said it was absolutely required for the game to work... and these hackers/programmers have proven otherwise.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    The always on requirement is most likely also influenced by EA wanting to shove micro-transactions into every game and down our throats. They want you connected to their shop at all times to get that 'in the moment' 'charging not gouging' sale.

    ^^You're most likely right but Maxis will disagree. They took responsibility for it over twitter.

    The always online portion is 100% EA. They did the same thing with Battlefield 3, remember? they made it so you had to be online to play the single player part of the game. It's all EA, they are the $#@!ers.

    If you don't like online only games then don't buy online only games. Simple.

    I think most of us haven't. That doesn't mean we can't voice our opinions against it because that's the direction we don't want other developers to take with their games.
