God of War and single-player action/adventure games no longer interest me

"I have a confession to make. I have committed a grave sin. That sin is having no plans to buy the recent God of War for the PlayStation 4. I know, blasphemy, right? I do understand that it’s an amazing game with a great story and crisp visuals, however, those are still not enough to pull me in. That’s because single-player action and adventure games no longer interest me." -- PlayStation Enthusiast

What's going on with all the GOW-related articles??

uptownsoul2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

I know right…Boy do I love the "These are what games I like (and/or don't like)" type of opinion articles (that don't really mean anything to anybody else)…

And of course this one is tailored toward one of the most popular PS4 games of the past couple years…no doubt to try and bring in as many eye-balls as possible…

Can't wait for this same author to recycle this exact same article in a month and a half... (this time with Spider-Man in the headline)…to get more page visits!!!

This is from playstationenthusiast.com. Its pretty surprising they aren't towing the company line.

Babadook72127d ago

Two things are certain. 1. People LOVE god of war. And because of this fact 2. You can get good clicks saying otherwise.

Godmars2902127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

Sp is showing that it still has legs despite the likes of EA insisting that it doesn't.

As much as i hate to use the word: enter the shills?

Or, could just as soon be someone fishing for clicks and went after a popular title to get them.

@DrChevalier - "This is from playstationenthusiast.com. Its pretty surprising they aren't towing the company line."

Actually its not surprising at all…Being the millionth and 1 article lavishing praise on God of War will get ZERO clicks …especially 3 months after all the other articles have done the same thing…

But if your one of the very few articles on a pro-playstation site to say your NOT interested in God of War…Now your completely different & thus you can more easily stand out and draw a lot of attention to your article

How do you consider yourself a gamer if you don't like to play single player games??! Gtfo.

Sirk7x2127d ago

Popular recent game, pulls in clicks and therefore ad revenue, especially if it's a controversial opinion. Same reason we saw so many "WHY BOTW AND MARIO ODYSSEY ARE THE WORST GAMES EVER" articles last year.

derek2127d ago

I know it seems directed, let's see what tomorrow brings.

BioDead2126d ago

It's relevant now, using the name gives more clicks :)

ULTp0ltergeist2126d ago

I doubt most care anymore, it feels as if the game came and gone, just like that.

"God of War and single-player action/adventure games no longer interest me"

Then you have a problem its because of people like you today devs are moving to service based and online and MT BS I personally love SP games and they are here to stay

fiveby92127d ago

Opinion articles like this no longer interest me.

Does anyone care what style of games one random person likes or dislikes? I like the color blue. And no I didn't read the article. I see it tagged as opinion and the title and figure like more it's just some boring clickbait article.

My god. Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.

Why is it always one or the other with these people? It's either Xbox or Playstation. Multiplayer or no Multiplayer.

Like, is it not humanly possible for these people to just enjoy two different things?

Aceman182126d ago

To the writer of this article no one cares honestly it's your lose.

These people forget that single player games is what brought gaming to where gaming is today. If it wasn't for single player games there would be no online multiplayer games today unless we're talking about card games and chess and checkers but those even get boring fast.

Single player games have evolved nowadays and feel more like an experience then just fun.

VenomUK2127d ago

THREE articles in the last two days coming in hard at God of War!

Jinger2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

People tend to forget that games were actually multiplayer focused on conception. Tennis for Two, SpaceWar, Pong. And even when games were still single player like Pac Man and such they were still extremely popular with people getting together and playing in arcades and the like.

This notion that Single Player story games are what made gaming what it is, is ludicrous. Gaming had always been a social function.

InTheLab2127d ago

@Jinger

You forget the crash of gaming with the million copies of those games you mentioned sitting in a landfill somewhere.

Gaming had a resurgence under the NES with sp games like SMB and The Legend of Zelda.

Jinger2127d ago

@IntheLab

Lol nice job being wrong. Also NES still had some amazing Co-op titles like Contra, Battletoads, Marble Madness, Tecmo Bowl, R.C. Pro-am, Double Dragon, Mario Bros, SMB3, TMNT, Gauntlet 2...

I mean, you'd probably have a shorter list of games if you just counted Single Player games... Multiplayer/Co-op is a staple of gaming.

Gh05t2127d ago

" If it wasn't for single player games there would be no online multiplayer games today unless we're talking about card games and chess and checkers but those even get boring fast. "

Says someone who obviously didnt grow up in an arcade playing multiplayer games that have nothing to do with single player games.

TheDriz2127d ago

They don’t forget they just never knew. When I was a kid I was made fun of for all the games I played. These kids think it’s fashionable now. Gaming is not the same

@Inthelab
Can't say I totally agree with Jinger but your statement is wrong.
Oversaturation of the market with tons of unfinished products (Crap) led to the crash of 1982.
Also, there was tons of single player games on the market.
Did you forget about E.T.?
