Remember when a game called Tomb Raider was selling like cupcakes and made it popular to have a strong female lead character in a video game?

Examples:

April Ryan (The Longest Journey)

Rynn (Drakan: Order of the Flame & Drakan: The Ancients¨' Gate)

Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark)

Cate Archer (No One Lives Forever)

Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

Jade (Beyond Good & Evil)

.and many more...

I miss those days. The gaming industry is dead to me now.

That's not the problem. The problem is the fact that they're forcing people to be connected to the internet all the time, even if they're playing the single-player mode. This constant internet connection has several problems:

1: It doesn't make any sense why one should be connected to the internet just so they canplay the single player mode (multiplayer is a different story)

2: Since you have to be online all the time, a reliable broadband is required. Even if you have one, the connection isn't always that good and the game lags.

3: The progress you make in the game is saved on the game company's servers. If they crash you lose your progress. It's like finding out your memory card is corrupt.

4: If the servers should be permanently shut down for some reason (i.e the company that made the game has gone outof buisness) nobody will be able to play the game anymore.
