thank god not a fan of multiplayer and probably never will be if the day came that all games were multiplayer my gaming days would end

I think there's definitely a place for both.

I never played multiplayer until Uncharted 2 and I have probably put 50/60 hours into it.

I still really enjoy single players and most have some replay value (especially for trophies etc)

I think my problem is games that don't have a good single player campaign that get away with it because people seem happy with generic multi. (but again it's just personal choice)

So single players of quality eg batmanAA/AC are well worth it, as are great singles+multiplayer that are worth playing.

What I really don't want is a half cooked single player that at first glance seems good but gets boring and has no replay value or costs full price and is over in 4 hours.

is definitely not a dumbass. The day that single player only games become extinct is the day that the next videogame crash starts.

Not at all, even in this age of Multiplayer focus the SP heavy games are doing great imo.

SP Beats MP. I Like MP But Its So Frustrating Looking For A Match, Hearing 12 Year Olds Saying The N Word
