I wrote that players who are fans of the Sims city series knew of a different format.

Sim city 4 is 10 years old. If you are a fan of the series, it means you played at least one of the series before (save you are in the label thing and call yourself a fan of the series without having played one)

All those players have known times when Sim City games were not played with an always online requirement.

When some of those players decided to buy a Sim City 5 game, their decision had nothing to do with being young, uninformed, not knowing another format.

Same for the rest, the demographics of players mean the bulk of players are old enough to have played games without the online requirement.

I just followed the argumentation in the article: youth are unconcerned because they did not have the opportunity of playing a game when the always online requirement did not exist.

It cant hold as the bulk of video games customers have played during the age when the online requirement did not exist.

Players who did not know that age are a minority.

In other words, players who buy an always on line game do not buy it because they are uninformed, young or something. They buy it because they either dont care or agree with the game being always online.
