You were already having a discussion asking for an offline-mode / LAN mode conversion. It's the same thing. It's nonsensical begging for another version of a game, especially when it's an older game. You do it all the time, and it seems like you think its funny, clever, or interesting when you bring it up. I'm just saying that it's a frowned-upon type of posting behavior. It also seems like you are unaware of this. You've done this literally hundreds of times before I actually said something, so I don't think there's reason to take offense either.
Why should these games w/ actual content go to waste, not to be played by one person who actually might've actually liked it?
These companies should be prepared ahead of time, with a SP Patch ready to go when it's about time to pull the MP plug. Unless the game is a juggernaut and completely reinvents the MP wheel, it's not gonna last long in the MP Space. Too much there, too much competition. It'll basically be a rental.
Offline SP stuff can last forever, even if its just a skirmish mode against bots. I still can run Q3A offline and HGL even, at my own leisure. If those were MP-Only games - by now, those two would be dead. In fact, we know for sure: one of those is dead on the MP side (HGL); thank God for it having a SP mode.
Also, even Square's thinking about maybe doing FFXI Offline Version - https://www.destruct...xi-503431.phtml
Hope it comes to fruition and more companies think about doing such a thing, once their MP game becomes less-played online...and it isn't economically worthwhile to really keep servers up.
BTW, I'm not offended at all. I'm just pointing it out that for once, I actually didn't bring up the RDR PC port today first.
