Things like this shock me. Like when I heard only 15% of the people that purchased Halo (im not sure if it was 1 or 2) actually took it online. I personally love single player campaigns and I dont think im of a dying breed. I want a nice solid game to play through and have a great experience. I then look to online for some replay value. I never buy a game soley banking on the online experience to give me what im looking for.
