I have been lurking a lot of these Sim City news threads. Obviously the thing people are most outraged with is that you can't play the game. What is more outrageous to me is not the DRM. Personally I would put up with the bull**** DRM if they actually let me build a huge expansive city and were not trying to force this multiplayer region BS. I want to build my dream city. I want to play the game like I want to play it, not like EA/Maxis wants me to play it. Isn't that the point to a sandbox game?
Maybe when they figure out the server issues and if they patch it so you can build HUGE cities I will pick up the game.
