10 Video Games With Utterly Pointless Multiplayer Modes You Ignored

You might be thinking that adding extra modes into games is something that should be praised, even if they weren’t perfect. Yet these superfluous components take away precious development time from the rest of the title – rather than adding a tacky CoD clone the designers could have added extra missions, improved graphical details or even added more depth to the story.

Even if the additional modes were not terrible, they can still be completely unnecessary. It seems that certain developers just haven’t grasped the concept that players will sometimes buy games simply for their single player story. To help them get the message, this article highlights 10 games that have absolutely unnecessary multiplayer stories that you really didn’t want and definitely didn’t play. (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Batman: Arkham Origins, Brutal Legend, Condemned 2: Bloodshot, Culture, Mass Effect 3, Red Dead Redemption, The Darkness 2)

Mass Effect 3 had one of the best online multiplayer experiences I have EVER played in my entire life. The sense of Cooperation was a very nice change of pace from the usual .... I KILL YOU.... attitude of most fps shooter multiplayer games. I am sure everyone met a lot of friends online due soley to Mass Effect 3's multiplayer. I also liked Red Dead's online so..... yea.

Completely agree. I had much more fun with mass effect 3 and red dead mp then the last few cod's.

Red Dead Redemption's online MP was what made me buy XBL Gold account. Played it on a free live weekend and spent 8 hours solid (not planned) having a massive gun battle with loads of players from many countries. Most time ive spent solid on a MP game. The author in my opinion is talking out his ass on that score...ME3 multiplayer was great too

ME3s firefight/horde mode is badass and IMO it is the best part of the game. It is the main thing I look forward to in the next ME,lol. It is more RPG then the SP. It had so much content that gave you so much to look forward too. I never had so much excitememt unlocking content in a multiplayer game before. It however could get tedious and boring, but I would always come back after a month or so with some friends

RDR had an interesting online as well and the free roam was fun.
