Could somebody please tell me, when U goto play a game, some games want to connect to the internet. I know U can play over the net. Surely it should only want to connect when U want to play on line? Why do some games do this?

Thanks for that. I thought it might have been something to do with the game beening genuine or not. A bit like spyware, something like that. Thanks again Powerless.
