I really have no idea as I think if someone were to accurately formulate the answer to that question, they would have a billion dollar idea in their hands.
Until such day, the best we can do is look at examples of good multiplayer games and try to figure out what makes them so much fun in the first place.
Playing through Atomic Ninjas, I feel as though it has components to be a good multiplayer game and yet oddly enough, it just isn’t very fun.
