Offline gaming is thriving! Sure, it doesn't garner the same levels of obsessive mainstream mass-coverage as the endless raft of "e-sports" events, but that's "sport" for ya.
I've barely touched an online game in years, as my backlog of amazing offline single-player experiences is immense, and ever-growing.
Recently, I've played "The Sexy Brutale", which is a fantastic mix of Clue(Cluedo), point'n'click adventures (but realtime), and Groundhog Day. Hugely recommended, and available DRM-free on GOG.
I've also personally placed "Rain World" on my all-time-top-10 list... although it's certainly not for everyone. Incredible deeply-simulated game with amazing potential for emergent situations. You will die a lot, and a lot of people find it hard to accept that you don't "progress" in a typically gamey sense... you have all the abilities you need at the start of the game, and you need to put in a good 10-20 hours exploring, learning and practicing to actually train yourself to be able to survive. Only play if to you, exploration and discovery are their own rewards, and you aren't the type to rage-quit because you expect your games to be "fair". It's an incredible experience if you're willing to give it the time and patience it deserves.
