Single player isn't dead, it's just evolving into a six-hour animated movie, which is interrupted with bouts of gameplay. The Publisher of GoozerNation would like to take that aspect another step forward.
Metroid: Other M was similar to that and allowed you to watch the cutscenes as a movie, but no one liked it... soooo, depends on the game...
I guess. Nothing wrong with a game trying to be what it wants to be. But when other games are undermined because of it, i have an issue. I know many people who are easily impressed by COD's cinematic campaign and pay for the game every year because they don't know better. It's difficult arguing with them about replayability of games like halo, which also has 4 player co-op (which is why cinematic set pieces are limited). Now that i have shown some of my friends what they have never thought about, they have gotten wayy more accustomed to halo 4, borderlands 2, and farcry 3. That's not totally related to this article, but it's one of the reasons i'm tired of even borrowing COD year after year.
