A recent update of the PC app (Meta Quest Link) broke the offline mode for PCVR games. Without an internet connection, installed games do not show up any more, even if marked as "Internet connection not required" in the store. Trying to launch a purchased game's executable from Windows Explorer leads to an error (Entitlement failure).
The library section only shows “Oculus Dreamdeck”, “Oculus First Steps” and “Oculus First Contact”.
 
After connecting the PC to the Internet and restarting the PC app, the installed games can be accessed again.
 
Meta Store Support has confirmed this new erroneous behavior, and suggested to open a discussion here.

The issue doesn't seem to gather much attention as of now. I understand that the "vote for ideas" system is meant to measure the popularity of community suggestions for new features, and allow the developers to focus on the most popular ones. But fixing "broken after update" basic functionalities such as the offline mode, especially since it is marketed in the store, should also have a high priority, no matter if it gains a lot of immediate attention in the forum or not.

No offline mode is a massive deal breaker for those with flaky or intermittent internet connections
