Pause Resume look at how added multiplayer could affect the single player aspect of No Man's Sky.
No not rly, if anything it would give it a longer life. Majority of gamers will move on to the next game once they get bored doing the same thing over and over again....alone. It's like chopping down a giant tree with an axe, at first you are excited and hacking away. You start getting bored halfway but keep at it until you chop it down, then turn around and have to do it all over again with a new axe on a different kind of tree. A new axe and different kind of tree isn't going to make it much more exciting after you did this so many times. Now if you add a friend to help you it keeps you motivated and will make it funner since you both may be doing the same task but have each other to help and share with.
It's called beer. That's all you need to make things a bit more tolerable when bored cutting down trees or playing a game alone... ; )
multiplayer games have a much shorter shelf life than single player games. Players move onto the next quickly and leave them unpopulated.
I quit playing uncharted trilogy after I beat them. I moved to uncharted 4 and still play it because it has multiplayer. I don't play the SP but not because it isn't fun but I can only do the same thing alone for so long. The MP on U4 is awesome and keeps me going back for more.
Ehhh, if it's a solo game with a tacked on MP then yes, people might move on pretty quickly, but there are plenty of games that are really made for the MP, think COD, Battlefield, Titanfall, even Battlefront, people keep playing them, many don't even play the single player campaign if there is one... I've spend more hours on MP games than on SP games, many games that have an added MP like The Last of Us or Uncharted 4 it's nice for a bit, but even tho it sorta looks like the main SP game it so isn't and they just can't hold my interest for long...
We would have had a Universe full of Gankers. The world needs more single player games and less Gankers.
