Outstanding! Good find Ana.
Yeah, the comments are priceless. You wonder if the lightbulb ever goes off in their little heads and they make the connection.
But I do NOT want to see single player games disappear! What's the answer?
I liken game development to growing crops and selling the games to harvesting. You have some options on how you want to handle pests that reduce your harvest. You can do nothing and lower your expectations, you can use pesticides (DRM) and prevent the pests; but the pests will adapt over time and become resistant to the pesticides so you have to keep creating new and better, or at least different pesticides.
I'm lousy at predicting the future and I don't really have a good feel for how the industry is changing even right now. It will be interesting to see where this goes.
I also hope that we will keep single player standalone games available.
