I used to like multiplayers (mmo not included here) but nowdays everyone just checks for builds and meta whatever... I rather play some random diamond connect4 than try to get good at whatever call of duty game with shitty EU servers are happening. Not touching Royale games. Idea is good but i dont have 20 hours per day to devote to learn area. <-- For example.
Sooo, mostly single players. I can goof around and do whatever depending on the game.
I like a good co-op campaign with my BF or when we sometimes play stupid games. But most co-op games are not usually the style/type of game we want to play. There are more single player games that I have interest in because I like the story/gameplay.
Single-player, since I can play at my own pace and not have to worry about what anyone else happens to be doing. Playing with other people can be fun, until you get ruined by trolls and the like.
Single-player games that technically have multiplayer things you can do (ex. visiting each other in Animal Crossing, trades/battles in Pokémon, etc.) are pretty ideal though, since you can do most things by yourself but still play with others if you want to, imo.
Single player all the way. There's no way I'm buying into the current console gen con of paying subscription fees for the sake of accessing the online multiplayer part of the games I've already paid for.
I'm strictly single player nowadays, I don't touch online games any more.
Many years ago I had a very unhealthy relationship with the MMO Final Fantasy XI, I was completely addicted and obsessed, logging in most days over a 10+ year period. I regularly pulled all nighter's to take park in linkshell (guild) events, and it got to the point where it was having a massive impact upon my social life and work commitments.
To put my obsession into perspective I owned a relic weapon (They took countless years, and hundreds of millions of in game currency to acquire, and back then, out of the thousands of players on a server, you could literally count on your fingers the number of players who owned relic weapons). I'd maxed out almost all of the games 22 in game classes and had maxed out goldsmithing and sub crafts. For non-players of Final Fantasy XI, all of this is probably meaningless to you, but those of you who played can probably appreciate I had a problem.
I can appreciate the dedication you had to the game, and reaching feats where you're one of a few players with certain gear is definitely a rarity nowadays where everyone seems to max everything in a week or so, but I'm also glad that you were able to pull away from the addictive aspect.
single vs multiplayer is like comparing apples to a chair. sure, they both have origins in trees, but you'd be hard pressed to find me someone who believes they taste the same. single and multiplayer games are completely different experiences for their players, so it feels unfair to compare them or to say one is better.
i like both kinds of games, but i can't say i like one more than another
I have never liked to play online. Two against the company - yes, but the gaming battles on the Internet have always left indifferent. In my deep belief, a single game embodies the logic of desire, while multiplayer games are built on compromises.
Single player for sure. On multiplayer games like MMOs you're forced to be part of the gaming community because if you make a pause for some time all of them you know are already leveled up and such.
I'm a hard working person and I can play when I have time or when I feel like doing, taking the time to soak into the story and gameplay well to enjoy it to its fullest. That's why l play single player games.
My interest was in single player titles with little interest in multiplayer but over the years I've grown more interested in multiplayer. I wouldn't say there's much of a rivalry per say, but multiplayer certainly has something to it.
Single-player is fun and all but it simply isn't worth $60 most of the time in my eyes (unless it's an RPG) because they're too short. Multiplayer on the other hand can give you hundreds or even thousands of hours of gameplay. I've played Rainbow Six Siege for over 3000 hours for example. I usually just rent single-player games for a couple of dollars lol.
I play games in single player because I have no one to play with and I prefer a single player experience. I don’t hate multiplayer but I will play a little if I can rope someone into playing with me for the multiplayer mode of a game.
I didn't really do Multiplayer until I got PlayStation Plus, as I prefer single player still, I have no problem playing multiplayer as long as it's not outclassed vs newbies. the stats and weapons are horribly cruel
Hah, I totally agree that after SC IV was when multiplayer began to decline. I think it was then that the party chat system was popularized. Not saying that the inclusion of party chat was the only cause for my enjoyment of multiplayer to plummet, but it definitely aided in making it less enjoyable and only continued to fall when content creators began spoiling almost every single aspect of a game by showing people how to get the best X or Y within a week.
I definitely prefer singleplayer games to multiplayer. I'm not against multiplayer games in the slightest, but there are very few that even interest me. I'm not into first-person shooters or anything like that.
And I think, like you, I definitely prefer playing a game at my own pace.
