Multiplayer and Co-Op is the Equivalent to Reality TV

The video game industry is catching on to what the television industry started with reality TV. Give 'em a premise but make the public provide the entertainment. It's cheap and it's easy to produce.

Its cheap filler for gameplay. makes up for poor AI.

Excellent point on the poor AI. That should have been included in the article.

Poor AI will ruin any good game.

When a game relies on a multiplayer-only experience, that's when I say "goodbye". There has to be some single-player element to the game or I can't play it. I don't want to have to schedule online gaming sessions in order to play a game and enjoy the game.

Being a father who is also a gamer makes keeping schedules hard. Family takes priority over gaming.

Excellent point about having to schedule time to play with your friends. I guess you can always just hope someone is online at the same time you are, but it's almost like you sometimes have to plan ahead as to when you're gonna play a game. That's a big negative in my book.

"the more time I spend on N4G the more patience I lose and never get back."

I can agree with that. =]

But I've never had a "deep experiance" in any MP game.

I'm glad to see someone railing against these kinds of games - Left 4 Dead in particular needed a good reaming for not being as deep as it should be.
