I do not play games online, but it appears more games seem to require you log on before you can play. Since I really do not want this requirement, is there something that identifies such games I can see before I purchase them? For instance, I got Batman and the box said Windows Live. So when I tried to install, I had to set up Windows Live which I do not want to do. Metro 2033 just says "Games for Windows", and it requires Steam as does COD2. Currently I am installing Metro 2033 and even though I have the DVD, it is downloading over 7 GB for an "update." I installed BFBC2 and it actually asked if I wanted to play on line and did not require an internet connection. So, what might look for to be able to get games that do not use Steam or Windows Live?
