Top 5 Games That Did Not Need Multiplayer | OnlySP

OnlySP: Welcome back to another Top 5 Tuesday.

Let’s be honest; there have been some really great single player games that have come out over the years. Here at OnlySP, we embrace the essence of the single player experience. Single player games have a deep story and game play experience, and even co-op stories can be great. I will admit, more often than not single player games have an inherit weakness of lack of replayability in the fact that once you’ve played through the single player mode, there usual isn’t much to call solo players back to the game. Multiplayer has always been a great inclusion in games to increase the replayability and warrant gamers picking up the game a second or third time after the initial playthrough. However, some games just fall short when it comes to multiplayer or include such disappointingly dull multiplayer that it shouldn’t have been included in the first place. Developers tend to “tack on” a multiplayer experience to a game in order to get gamers playing their game longer and not returning it after they have completed it. I love multiplayer games as much as I love single player games, but including a multiplayer mode onto a game with a great single player experience just to have multiplayer is not what developers should be doing. Below is my Top 5 list of games that did not need multiplayer. (Dead Space 2, GameCube, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Star Wars:The Old Republic, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)
