The Best Single Player Only Game Of The Generation?

OnlySP: We've heard some great things about upcoming multiplayer-less titles like Thief and Wolfenstein: The New Order, but let's take a look back at what some of the greatest games so far this generation have accomplished without the need for jumping on the "multiplayer for everything" bandwagon. (BioShock: Infinite, Dishonored, DmC: Devil May Cry, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

For the past year I'll say,

Dishonored and BioShock Infinite
Ezio2048  +   962d ago
Yes, both were good.
Personally, I would vote for God Of War 3.
UltraNova  +   962d ago
Dishonored.
humbleopinion  +   962d ago
Exactly these two.
And Skyrim.
And Uncharted 2.
And Alan Wake.
And Red Dead Redemption.
And Arkham City.

Damn, this is hard.

Uncharted 2 doesn't count (not saying its not good :p) just it comes with mp, its for pure sp games i think

So does RDR. But that doesn't detract from the awesome single player campaign.

Not every game needs MO but I am starting to debate that after playing last of us MP, ND really did something different and tried so,e fish and new so if developers have enough resources do something smart and out of the ordinary

Dishonored was single player only and so was bioshock infinite. But dishonored is liked because of the gameplay it had a weak story and bioshock infinite IMO is a very over rated game of this gen. And that's coming from someone who bought bioshock infinite at launch

But I guess to each their own

The Last of Us

Best game ever made and I've been gaming since 1991
drsfinest72  +   962d ago
Definitely not the best story. I could say best graphics or top 3 best graphics
Lovable  +   962d ago
@Solid

Dude Single Player ONLY without Multiplayer so The Last of US don't count.
Sizzon  +   962d ago
It has competitive MP tho :p
SolidGear3  +   962d ago
I don't count the MP. I'd think it'd be under consideration to be in this category because alot of MP centric games feel like they have a tacked on SP. It's the opposite with this. I'd say BioShock, Heavy Rain and The Walking Dead are also at the top.

"single. player. only"

Do you not understand what that means?
Lovable  +   962d ago
I thought Rainbow Moon on the PSN for !5 dollars was damn good. I spend over 100 hours on that haha...

The Walking Dead Series. Truly amazing...
Sizzon  +   962d ago
The original Bioshock or Portal 2 (yes online co-op) but no real MP.

inFamous and Uncharted: Drakes Fortune are noteworthy aswell.

co-op = multiplayer

2 = multiple people thus multiplayer. NEXT.
duckmysick  +   962d ago
Uh....nothing out is better than The Last of Us. BioShock infinite looks like trash compared to TLOU.

If all you have is an Xbox, it would be to you. But the rest of the world is playing TLOU. Get your heads out of your asses people and go get the game, and stop wasting time on debating dumb shit. If you don't have a ps3 with PS+ and TLOU, I don't know what the hell you could be playing! Its a shame people with extreme biases won't get to play, not only, the best game this year but the gen, its really sad.
SolidGear3  +   962d ago
True. The Last of Us is the best experience I've ever had.
GusBricker  +   962d ago
Skyrim, Mass Effect 2
oIITSBIIo  +   962d ago
Batman Arkham

The Witcher

Bioshock

God of War 3 and Bioshock are standouts to me as some of the best Single-Player only games. TLOU stands out as the best story in a game I've played in a long time though.
McScroggz  +   962d ago
Why the stipulation of single player only? Why not just say single player campaign?
theEx1Le  +   962d ago
Heavy Rain for me. Plotholes everywhere but i was so gripped from start to finish. Original Bioshock, InFamous were excellent too and the first Mass Effect also deserves a mention.
iRocket  +   962d ago
This is a really hard question. For me personally I would say Mass Effect 1/2, Half-Life 2 or the Walking Dead.
MaskedAnus   962d ago | Spam
GrumpyOla  +   962d ago
Demon's and Dark Souls for me. There is multiplayer in them but they can be played without online connections.
MaleManSam  +   962d ago
Geez hard to pick,
batman arkham city
Bioshock (original)
Mass effect 2
last of us
Skyrim (with mods)
Heavy rain
The witcher 2
Portal
And of course the Walking dead.

captain_slow82  +   962d ago

last of us
heavy rain
the walking dead
batman arkham
half life 2
bioshock
alan wake

just to name a few...
Commodore  +   962d ago
Demon's Souls was great but I loved playing online which takes it out.

Portal 2 (just ignore the multiplayer because it wasn't really multiplayer). It was still primarily single player.

The original Uncharted is still my favorite from the series. The story was good, a little sic-fi, but not as sic-fi as two and three. I can't even really remember the story towards the end from 3. The landscape, location, colors, gameplay.

Heavy Rain

God of War 3
bocajbee  +   962d ago
The Last Of Us.

Wait. That had multiplier.

Dammit.
Stoppokingme  +   962d ago
Deus Ex human revolution deserves a mention. I hope we get another Deus Ex game next gen.
despair  +   962d ago
That's a hard one to decide, so many great SP games.
