It seems really weird to complain about it when you could just delete it? Bioshock Infinite had a required 13 gig update that did nothing but add a new language a large portion of owners can't even speak/read. I wanted to keep DOOM on my Hard Drive(I bought it online) as well and yeah, the constant patching takes a toll on both my Hard Drive and Internet connection.Just be glad you aren't in a part of the world where Internet just SUCKS!!!! I thought about playing it on a harder mode than default after recognizing this game would obviously reward becoming more and more familiar with its enemies and weapons and maps the way 90s FPS would, but then I wanted to buy more games so I deleted it.So I decide to make this short little guide on how to not update your game. You can start Steam in offline mode and still play the game without any problems.
Just be glad you aren't in a part of the world where Internet just SUCKS!!!!As it is right now on the Xbox One store, when you buy a game it automatically starts a download.I would love to have the ability buy or add a game to my collection without my console trying to install it right after.Since people are always whining about "OMG MY SAVE BROKE" due to the updates and then we get the complaints and such. Yet they don't have any idea that you can turn off automatic updating in Steam so you can finish those games and update later. Also, the internet connection in the various hotspots around the ship were abysmally slow. If an update has been started, the game will not be available in offline until the download is complete.
