Multiplayer and narrative games

There is no denying that the videogame experience is, more often than not, immeasurably enhanced by the addition of another player. Suddenly that difficult struggle to save the universe becomes a test of camaraderie as you and your friends navigate the harsh, unforgiving world you’ve been dropped in together. It doesn’t even have to be a game that supports multiplayer, either-single-player experiences are usually improved by the addition of a voice in your ear, a hand on your shoulder during the emotional moments, some extra momentum for the wall-controller interaction during those annoying boss fights. Put simply, multiplayer is good. (BioShock, BioShock 2, Casual games, Industry)
