Why are there Android games that require Internet connection and others do not?
Although there are few games that we can play without connecting to the internet, the truth is that the tendency to opt more and more towards permanent connection. There are games, such as (obviously) online multiplayer, that it is inevitable that they can only be played with the Internet, but why are there single-player games that also require it?
The main reason is the verification of the purchase license . This happens in paid games, and is done to prevent hacking, or at least they sell it to us. When the player starts the game and signs in, with the use of that Internet connection, it validates the license, which verifies the game purchase of the user.
There are other games that also connect to make backups on servers, store files from saved games, download necessary files , or upload game scores to rank with other players’ scores, even though, at the time of Play, they are not multiplayer.
As usual, there are many users who complain about this, and it is not a good taste to go on the bus or in the subway, and not be able to play because of not having coverage, or simply, for not spending data on the rate .
Anyway, as you have seen, there are many high quality games that you can play completely offline without any problem.
