Regardless of what could be occurring and what might come out of it, they designed this Sim City to be inherently multiplayer. You spend your time building cities with friends or random people. I don't know what they thought could come out of it, but there's no point in wishing it wasn't always online.
They are rebooting the Tomb Raider movies? Does no one have an original idea anymore? Although I guess reboot Tomb Raider, was the first time anyone said it.
Just like how you cannot be mad for Bayonetta 2 being a Wii U only game. The only reason there's a such thing as Bayonetta 2 is because of Nintendo.
I wasn't looking forward to the anime movies either, but The Last Airbender and Dragonball basically showed it needs to be done right to make money, which comic book movies spent 10+ years in until Iron Man showed you can do it right.

Then, of course, the next two in each series proved you can do it horribly, horribly wrong, too.
Then the X-Men movies kinda started the revival, with Iron Man, Thor, et al really driving "good" super hero movies into the limelight, after your aforementioned decade of stuff like Elektra and Daredevil.
