Starcraft 2

WoW

Etc.

Other games don't need as much patches as Blizzard's games need.

Even Bethesda doesn't release patches as often.

Blizzard games have too many problems.

I hate waiting, even if it only a few minutes.

Hey, I'm with you. Nothing infuriates me more than installing a Blizzard game couple years after a release. Like World of Warcraft. It'll take at least a day to patch the game, before I can play it.

Yes, becuase Activision's policy of no patches till a riot about to happen is much better:roll:

So you're saying, developers should back off and modders will take care of everything?

*Always online*

With patches I can play the game when I choose, when is convenient for me, after I've paid for it.

Any offline functionality is not cutout.

So no, you're wrong again champ.

Or Diablo, or WoW, or Warcraft 3. The OP doesn't get it. At all. Which is sad.

You're right, constant new content updates and bug fixes are terrible, Blizzard are evil for shoving them down our throats...

You have terrible taste for starters and also mmo's and competitive multiplayer games need that many updates to keep the community active and prevent hackers as much as possible, comparing that style of game to Oblivion is so far beyond ignorant I don't know what to say.

I kind of agree. They should at least consolidate their patches over time.

When I installed starcraft 2 last xmas I had to wait like an hour while a dozen different patches downloaded and then installed, one by one.

If you think that is bad, install TF2.

Also, not a SWs thread. Blog it.
