Thank You, Metro: Last Light, For Not Shipping With Multiplayer

Kotaku: "It's kind of faded into the background now that most people like to focus their anger on downloadable content, but for me, multiplayer has always been the biggest problem with modern, big-budget video games.

It just doesn't, for many games, need to be there. At all." (Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I wish they would've shipped with multiplayer, personally.

People who buy this game aren't looking for multiplayer.
WrAiTh Sp3cTr3  +   864d ago
Are you 100% sure of that? Lol...

On topic: THQ, why don't you sell the multiplayer suite you've been working on as a download. People that want the online can get it and people that don't, can play through the game a few times then trade it in and come back onto websites complaining about the people who wanted online...

Suit yourself. I will never purchase any game without multiplayer. Ditto!

Then you will miss a lot of great experiences. And you're arrogant.

Tough luck, it's a gamers right to be arrogant, if you do not like it get of the net. (wink)

The competitive play in multiplayer is what counts, if you like zombie games then please do. I stick with my original comment. (stick out tongue)

Multiplayer lengthens the experience only for competitive type games. Halo,COD,Forza. Where human vs. human interaction makes it more fun. Story driven games don't need it. Although games like portal 2 or that weird sand explore world game for PS3 were cool ways to have multiplayer (sorry cant think of the name). So I'm bummed it didn't try for multiplayer.

Not sure if serious or not. If you are serious, you just missed some pretty great SP games like Dishonored, The Walking Dead ep 3 and 4 and X-com.

So you'll never play Bioshock, or any of the Legend of Zeldas to name a few, wow what a gamer.

"It's a gamers right to be arrogant"

Really? What planet do you live on?

Stick to your competitive multiplayer. It's your loss, and we won't miss you.

If there's nothing innovative or different in the mp, then I wouldn't play that mp.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   865d ago
Lol you've described pretty much all MP to come out in the last 5 years. Unless some consider the Assassins Creed MP to be innovative, still feels tacked on to me

Assassin's Creed MP = Tom & Jerry Online. FACT!! anyone who says otherwise is obviously a fanboy.
Rupee  +   864d ago
Yeah good for them. Glad they didn't sell out like oh any EA game being released... Not every game needs it and not every game should have it.
Despair666  +   864d ago
They'll probably add it later as DLC
FarCryLover182  +   864d ago
Arrghh!!!! I was looking forward to pwning my friends in the tunnels.... oh drat, shucky darn!! :( :(

Funnily never thought about an MP mode. I wouldn't want anything competitive but something like a Gears Horde mode would suit this game imo.
urwifeminder  +   864d ago
Bargin bin for me then i liked the first but not much replay value i rarely buy singleplayer games.
MasterD919  +   864d ago
It may come out as DLC or be included in an update later on...It's not entirely out of the question just yet.

Thats what they say at least...but either way, not sure if it will matter.
j4re  +   864d ago
Couldn't agree more. I often wonder what how much better some games could have been had the development time been soley spent on single player rather than tacking on a multiplayer that is doomed from the start. Very few franchises out there have the fan base to support multiplayer. I think that's one of the biggest disappointments this generation. The perceived 'need' for a game to have multiplayer in order to be successful.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   864d ago
Bioshock 2 and Spec Ops to name a few, Team Yager even outright said 2k made us put MP in Spec Ops.
