Are you really that hard up to lose silly arguments on the interwebs?
All I did was share a similar experience. I didn't rant and rage about how bad Origin and Steam suck. If it had really bothered me that much, I would have figured out how to play offline(which I actually did). The only reason I've continued on with you is because you tried to insult my intelligence, but all you really succeeded in doing was making yourself look like an *** by posting wrong information it would have taken you a whole 20 seconds to find yourself.
Even Origin games can be played offline, duh.
Not quite. There may be several games that you can do this with, but there are also quite a few that check for and attempt to update prior to launch. If you can't connect to verify then it simply won't launch.
Steam does not require you to connect and sign in online.
False. You could have just posted an apology for the unkind remarks or at the very least admitted your mistake, but you continue on...
You only need to log on online once and activate the game.
Probably the closest I'll get from you to an admission that you were wrong, but if you'd actually read the example I used you would have seen that I didn't have access to a connection to do that. It was not possible for me to login and switch modes at the time so this information(which I actually found for you and used to correct you) would have done me no good, nor would I have been able to find it without a connection.
Also you don't have to go through Steam to play non-Steam game, like FFXI for example. Oh but I bet you don't even know Steam and non-Steam, cause everything available on Steam must be Steam game yeah?
FFXI can't be played offline so it doesn't really have any place in the discussion since we're talking about running single player games. Personally, I don't give a sh*t what is available on Steam. I only care about the games I own. Since you're so fu¢king bad at comprehending what you read, lets have a pop quiz!
Which game did I say I was attempting to play through Steam?
If you guessed correctly then congratulations! Heroic Cookie +3 for you! Go ahead and post directions(non-crack please) to how I can login to that game without Steam so I can promptly apologize and thank you.
If not, I'll give you a hint why you can't find that information: It's a fu¢king Steam game which can only be opened through Steam... Edited, May 20th 2012 1:13am by FilthMcNasty
