I wasn't planning on buying Sim City for this reason, just like I passed on Diablo III. I shouldn't have to be online to play a game like Sim City. It should be an option, or local w/ sync like you suggested. But I hate that I have to rely on always having an internet connection, and then rely on their servers being up to play it.
