Gamers Expect All Titles to be Online Now, says GameSpy

GameSpy has announced today that it will be opening access to GameSpy’s online services and SDKs, allowing independent developers the chance to enjoy infrastructure that was once only available to some of the industry’s biggest players. For some just getting into the business, it’s definitely a game-changer. IndustryGamers sat down yesterday with Todd Northcutt, Vice President of GameSpy Technology, to talk about the company's new GameSpy Open initiative.

I don't, there's nothing like a great single player experience.

It does help though. The best implementation of online in a single player game has to be Demon Souls. Imagine if the same was applied to Skyrim or Fallout

Care to explain why you disagree?

because Skyrim and Fallout arn't built up to be a online game. If you take a game like Borderlands, L4D or even the god awful Two Worlds which I hear is better when your online with a friend then fair enough

But Skyrim and Fallout should be left as single player games. Adding on,ine would ruin there great single player expierience you get from it.

The people who would love it though would only go back to COD/Halo after like a month

I agree that Demon's Souls has the best implementation of online in this kind of game. Demon's Souls is also a great example of why single player games will never die.

Personally I prefer single player games, also with online elements like DS. Unmatched single player games: Mass Effect 1/2, Uncharted 1/2, Demon's Souls, Assassins Creed 2, Bioshock, God of War series, GT-5, etc, etc, and I'm really looking forward to The Last Guardian, inFamous 2, FFXIII-versus. etc..

I don't... Having grown-up during the Sega vs. Nintendo era, I understand the value of a great single-player title.

I have to admit when Uncharted 2 came out I didn't think it needed an online, I played it and I found it was the best online game I have been on, I couldn't believe my friends when they went on about COD all the time, Uncharted had more freedom when you played online.

The point is some games do well with it while others don't.

In my opinion I didn't think Dead Space 2 really needed it or Assassins Creed Brotherhood. not saying the online is crap...just the games would of sold well anyway.
