The MAIN reason I game primarily on PS4 is because of the abundance of single player narrative driven games!

Finishing Lost Legacy as we speak and I'm blown away by the depth and scope of it! I know it's Naughty Dog but I wasn't expecting it to be this much scale! For something that started as DLC it has more meat than most $60. AAA titles!

The same way I feel about Horizon Frozen Wilds

The MAIN reason I game primarily on XBOX is because of the abundance of Multiplayer Games!

Good you found what you like =) Happy gaming

PlayStation has an abundance of those too 😊

Main reason I game on PS4 is the abundance of MP and SP games, other than Halo and Gears.
With PUBG on PS4 incoming. Just sayin man.

Yeah once upon a time I was an Xbox customer, day one Xbox and 360 but I like millions it would seem no longer give them our business!

So we just ignore all other mp exclusives and call it a day because ps4 has great 3. party mp games? Why not praise xbox for having third party sp games too?

Hardiman275d ago (Edited 275d ago )

No sir I'm not against MP games at all! Dead by Daylight, Overwatch are just a few I enjoy It's just SP games are my go to. the ones I really get excited about and my feelings toward Microsoft pertains to how they operate now as opposed to when I was a fan!

For me to buy a console there has to be something that makes say "hey I've got to get this, I have to play that!" I get all multiplat games on PS4 because I have to play the exclusives Sony has been cultivating for over twenty years! See they have a record of consistency and quality.

Microsoft used to offer variety like Strangers Wrath or Knights of the Old Republic or Otogi and it's sequel or Theif Deadly Shadows. Those were just a few and with the 360 Bio Shock was an exclusive for quite some time as was Mass Effect! I so enjoyed Metro 2033 and it was an exclusive until it was remastered for this gen.

The point is they used to have their own identity and brought so much to the table. They are not the company that I once loved.

I love this hobby and I'm an artist and appreciate creativity and passion and to me they have neither. I'm just pissed by what they've become! They have more money than God and should have a varid portfolio of exclusive content.

I don't pay for PS+ so I had to make PS4 my SP platform of choice and I don't regret it one bit. Lots of great SP games to enjoy. On the flip side, I am still a gold member for 360 and XBO so that is my MP platform of choice and it has been for over 10 years now.

Just finished Uncharted The Lost Legacy and Assassin’s Creed Origins. Now I’m currently playing through Nier: Automata.

I’d say over 95% of the games I buy are single player games and I rarely ever touch a multiplayer mode, unless there’s an easy trophy attached which I need for the Platinum.

Skankinruby275d ago

^^This. I will never get the appeal of multiplayer as it gets boring and redundant very quick, trophies are also the only reason I touch it

Fist4achin275d ago

Online MP games have their place and they are fun at times. I just prefer to play at my pace and dig into a great story.

Hardiman269d ago

I just finished LL as well and have started Nier and it is freaking awesome!!!! This gen is cranking out some amazing SP games!

You want to know the main reason why I'm angry at EA right now? It's not the MTs in games that also cost full retail price, although that is horrendous. It's that they couldn't just opt to focus on multiplayer games and release a statement saying that's what they want to focus on because they think that's best for their bottom line. They had to take the slimy, underhanded route and spread a rumour that singleplayer, narrative-driven games are dying off, just so they could try to undercut the success of such titles. They even likely paid Amy Hennig to release a statement to that effect. It's like they were thinking if their singleplayer games aren't selling as well as they'd hoped, they don't want other devs and publishers to do well with their singleplayer titles. That's one of the lowest stunts I've witnessed a game company pulling, ever, and I've been gaming for 25 years.

Anyways, lists like this prove that singleplayer titles are not only still around, but are thriving. This list doesn't include all singleplayer titles on the PS4 by the way. Not by a long shot. It's just this site's top 30 favourites. That they could make a top 30 shows singleplayer games are in abundance. There are also plenty of titles not on the PS4 that are singleplayer too. The PS4 just happens to be a system such titles thrive on. It's fine if a studio wishes to focus their efforts on multiplayer titles, but to say there is no market for a type of game just because one company hasn't had much success with it is blatantly false.
