As A Single Player, What Do You Think of Single Player/Multiplayer Connected Games?

OnlySP: It seems that the days of having a traditional offline single-player experience with no DLC, no patches and no day one updates have almost all been lost as the age of gaming continues. It’s very obvious that the times, they are a changin’. And it seems they’ll be a changin’ once again as we embark upon the next-generation of console gaming. Can the sole singe player experience continue for the next-generation or will some form of hybrid of single player/multiplayer come into fruition? Let’s discuss. (Destiny, PC, PS4, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Xbox One)

I've been a single player gamer since the beginning, in the Atari 2600 days. I would like it if developers would split the single and multiplayer experiences and allow players to download one or the other, or both if they want. It would lower the cost of admission, allowing single player only gamers to buy the single player portion for $30. It would probably sell more copies, because players could play what they want at a discounted cost without paying for a section of the game they may never use. And I think it would give gamers a chance to play games that they would never buy for $60. Basically an impulse purchase at $20 or $30.

A win-win for developers and gamers. Gamers get exactly what they want to play, the way they want to play it and developers get sales that would probably expand on current numbers due to the lower-cost.
