James, James, James... aloneness, not lonliness. They are not interchangable.
And for what it's worth, I LIKE playing games by myself, just as I like reading books to myself. Being an introvert, I don't mind being alone. It's when and how I recharge so I can be WITH people when I decide that's what I want to do.
As to people being upset about blasphemy: they would be better off minding their own lives, and let god him/her/itself worry about how he/she/to respond to such. After all, he/she/it is GOD, so I suspect if he/she/it wanted to do something about it, he/she/it is in the best position to respond as he/she/it decides, being, you know, god.
As to the new Sim City: I like the games. The first game I bought for my SNES was the original Sim City. I own all four and have enjoyed playing them, by myself. However, as the new Sim City release appears to be a mandatory online experience, I shall pass on the game with regret for the need for me to "share" my city experience.
