Yes it is bad.
Internet has not done the world of gaming any favors. It’s not because of my connection, I mean that’s excellent here, but it’s the fact that other players, unless they’re on the couch next to you, in any capacity always ruin a game. I don’t want or need to interact or be social with anyone. When I want to do that, I’ll contact a friend.
Then, there’s the fact that you’re basically enslaving yourself to the publisher, a more pressing concern. They decide when and for how long you can actually play their game. When support stops, or servers shut down, it’s all over. This means there are games I can buy now, for full price, that I couldn’t potentially play anymore five years from now. Meanwhile, my 2600 games from 40 years ago still work exactly as intended and as if they were just bought. In fact there already are games that are no longer playable. People will find out soon enough though, and if publishers putting more and more crap into games, a bubble will burst at some point.
Luckily for me, and us, there’s still good publishers out there and there are plenty of games to still play from generation’s past. No need to bend to a publisher’s will.
