Stop trying to make me go multiplayer

BT Games: "Do we require a multiplayer mode stuffed into every game on the market? Some games should remain singular experiences, argues Vikki Blake." (Culture, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3, The Last Of Us)

100% agree. I don't mind good multiplayer every now and then but it shouldn't come at the expense of a great single player experience.

I believe there's room in the industry for both though.

I ALMOST NEVER play multiplayer. When I do, it's usually just a local co-op sports game. I don't even go online.

While I can't call it the main reason, I feel like the over-focusing on multiplayer is part of what ruined last gen.

From the name of the article you might think Vikki is going to somehow pan TLOU multiplayer, but she cites it as positive example. I just want to add that I think it's the best multiplayer game to come along maybe ever. Yes, for their time, Goldeneye, Warcraft 3, Tekken 1,2, & 3, etc. were as impactful, but the TLOU MP is just stunning and seemingly overlooked. THe announcement of even more MP content on the way demonstrates that Naughty Dog knows what they have here.
