Why Bother With Multiplayer

Why is it that every game that happens to have guns in it must have a multiplayer mode? Example of multiplayer that nobody seems to play is Assassin's Creed. Making its debut in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood I've always found the multiplayer in the AC series to be a unique take on the traditional model. Its blend of trickery, misdirection, and straight up stalking is a decent amount of fun. Again it just doesn't seem to be as popular as the big three. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Far Cry 3, Halo, Halo 4, PS3, Xbox 360)

I see what you did there.
The only multiplayer I've dealt with this year frequently has been Uncharted:3 and DARK SOULS.

truely Some of the worst online experiences I have every had is with this game. Unexcusable Hit detection even on a high speed connection.

Because asking us to pay $60 for a 6 hour campaign is stupid. Having a good multiplayer mode does not even take away from the single player experience either. Halo, Half-Life, Gears of War, Uncharted, Starcraft to name a few with good multiplayer and singleplayer. All it takes is effort, most of the bad multiplayer this gen is because they were COD copies and tacked on the last minute due to laziness

Been playing lots of ZombiU multiplayer recently with a friend, its couch only but its fun as hell, 1 player spawns different types of zombies RTS style and the other player has to run around staying alive searching for ammo :)

because it's boring fighting against AI.

I actually enjoy FC3 multiplayer (when it works) but it really does need a patch especially the mics.
