This is what buying a game means to me, to be able to play it whenever I feel like it, be it now or in 30 years when the servers are down. With always on DRM I just feel like I payed for a tool with which I get to access the game, but not quite for the game itself. I refuse to buy any server sided game no matter how much I want to play them or how great they are. My two cents.

Any game that is online only I will never pay for, for this reason.

Just because a company might not want to run the servers any more doesn't mean I won't want to play it, and if it's an OLO game, they're basically giving me the finger.

Well, if all games do go online at some point, we could just ignore them and play indie/kickstarter games which aren't online. From what I've seen, there's already a nice amount of really promising kickstarter games which look better than all these AAA+ titles.

It's easier to make every game online only and blame the piracy instead of the real reason, their greed.

The day they put 'always online' DRM into every game is the day I stop gaming. I need offline mode because my connection isn't the most stable. Diablo 3 was a disaster for me. Never again...
