First of all, there are online version of the sims. Second of all the sims 3 just sold 2.51 million on PC, that's still more than it sold to all consoles combined where it sold like 2 million…. ( but still not that impressive number ) Third it all builds on people sharing their creations online, buying new stuff online, and so on. I'd hardly call it an offline single player game.

Of course neither is Diablo 3. Here is hoping we'll soon see a great single player PC RPG, with that kind of system. I'd really be interessed in the sales for that!
