If only the games for these systems didn't depend on Microsoft's and Sony's servers to be accessible for them to work. It's almost as if it's some kind of crazy DRM scheme.

They don't.
At least not any of those I have, they work just fine without PSN.

Even installed a game from disc without PSN validation.

My PS4 games works fine without PSN connection.
As with your Skyrim, I can't synchronize save data or trophies. It's saved local untill servers are up, and obviously can't play multiplayer, but beyond that my games works just fine.

I even installed a new game without PSN connection, without any problems.

Let's for one second imagine the game wasn't filled with bugs, the game is still fucking horrible.
They went backwards. The game is boring as hell, story bland, nothing new of value added to gameplay, they managed to make combat worse that previous iterations.

That review is either a massive fan boy or paid for.

Was about to post about exactly this.
I live in Denmark and my father wanted to install solar power a few years ago.

He quickly found out that's a very bad idea, since the costs to the government would be significant.

They tax you on the generated power output, and require you to sell excess to the local power company, which they naturally also take income tax on.

They say they want us to go green, but yet they tax the hell out of it.

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.

Working...
