In the coming weeks I will be experiencing something that I haven’t had to deal with in over a decade. I will be without a broadband connection for gaming. It isn’t necessarily something that I’m upset about, as it is providing me with the opportunity to live in the geographic region I prefer (that of which I also happen to call ‘home’). While I will most certainly be alleviated of this lacking high-speed internet connection in the hopefully near future as well – I believe this is a great time to throw this situation into the wild.
Initially, I thought that the most negative aspect of this situation was going to be not having the opportunity to play games like Battlefield and Call of Duty online with multiplayer components. Then it occurred to me that the primary downfall to this is the fact that I have purchased quite a few games digitally. This essentially makes it next to impossible for me to download any of these games while I am without a connection. So, Madden 18, MLB 17, Battlefield 1, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and WW2, the list goes on… will have to be downloaded and installed before going back home.
This situation is one that many gamers don’t have to think about often. However, it is worth considering which games you’d like to have installed in an internet armageddon situation.
As it stands for myself, I have to consider first and foremost deleting the digitial games that I only play online – Call of Duty and Battlefield – I’ll see you when I have internet once again. The next to go will be any game that I have played out for the foreseeable future – Madden 18, I wish I could say you were worth keeping (maybe when they fix CFM in 2053).
Which games are left at this point?
My digital purchases in terms of single player games is rather limited (fortunately).
So, welcome to the download family – Deus Ex – Mankind Divided, Just Cause 3, and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.
These are all games I own digitally and have yet to beat the story mode within. I wish I could say I was driven to finish the campaign for Battlefield 1 and COD WW2, but seriously – these are games I wish I could buy the Multiplayer separately for anyway. Speaking of – I think $30 for these games with only the online multiplayer would be a great way of doing things someday.
Personally, one reminder and the main suggestion I will make is to download the biggest open world games you have with all of their DLC. That should at least make it somewhat easier to decide some of the first games to take care of prior to moving.
Which games would you download if you were going to be without the internet for gaming?
I must say my first vote will be The Witcher 3 with all of the DLC, followed closely by Skyrim and Fallout 4.
