As review scores drop for Medal of Honor, GMG asks: what counts for more when it comes to a score? Is single player always the primary consideration? Or has the multiplayer scene developed to the point that it deserves equal billing?
Who cares as long as i have fun thats what matters to me.
Thus far multiplayer-only games have sold significantly less than SP-only titles (naturally excluding WoW), so...
It's subjective and based on fun and immersion. Multiplayer games will cater to multiplayer. Single player games will cater to single players. I don't see people replaying the BFBC2, Halo Reach, Call of Duty MW2 single player campaigns. I don't see developers creating multiplayer modes for God of War 3 or Alan Wake. The only game I've ever truly wanted MP for was Just Cause 2. 16 players just flying around the entire world blowing up stuff seems like so much fun.
Just Cause 2 definitely needed multiplayer. Imagine all the mayhem!
It depends on the type of game for me. Sports, racers, and some FPS I prefer multiplayer. RPG, platformers, hack & slash, and puzzle games I prefer single. I prefer single mostly becuz you don't have to worry about being cheated like you do in multiplayer.
Single player. Multiplayer is fun for a while, but a new MP mode will always come out and replace the old one. The single-player campaign - on the other hand - will last forever if you like it enough.
Single player for me.
lol wii is for single player only. Btw this guy is racist
Single player if you are over 12 years old and 'trivial' things like stories matter to you.
In this case multi, imo.
Because you shouldn't depend on others to be able to enjoy a game. I say in most cases because sometimes the game was made for online, like MAG or Team Fortress 2, and they don't need SP, or the developpers were really focused on the online part of their game, making the SP absolutely awful compared to the MP.
Multiplayer fo sho yo.
in this case MP which is why Im not buying as im only interested in SP In general SP>MP
1st single(foundation) 2nd multi both would be ideal
Single player should be and always be top priority if you're making a game that isn't mp only like warhawk.
Depends on type of game. Uncharted 1&2 sp unmatched imo. For mp, depends what you like. I've grown bored of ww1,2,3. I want hl2 ep3. SP. I also want a fps space type game, which still has not been done yet. And no, reach does not cut it.
MGS4! Halo: CE! BioShock!
I mean that those do well match and surpass the Uncharted games' SP components.
superstardust hd or vanquish
Both, but MOH excels at neither
Today its multiplayer but i like foward to single player in games more. I remember back in the first playstation era when you got a game you where expecting a epic and long single player and most of the time you got what you wanted. Now its hard to find a game with a good long single player.
Single player,there has to be a story in a game,this is what i am trying to say: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It depends on which system you own. PS3 and Wii owners are concerned about the length of single player. 360 owners and PC owners seem to prefer MP. They seem to not don't care about SP length e.g. the continuously purchased LFD2 with a three hour campaign. In my opinion for the price of a game these days if you want to give me MP I want a full and lengthy SP as well. I don't care how many MP modes you give me. I don't want to pay for half a game. If you are so hellbent on MP then sell it as a multiplayer game on it's own for less money.
but you replay L4D2 over and over again, thats the whole point in the game you dont finish it once and say ok thats it sell it now the game is different eveytime you play it also
single player......its not even a question
Single player for me. MP is just a bonus.
There are a thousand multiplayers, almost anyone will take up your time. Single player is a real impactful unforgettable experience. I also agree with joydestroy Co-op, especially Co-op horde mode [email protected] yeah.
Single player is where it's at, so if you aren't there, you're nowhere, and if you're nowhere, you're definitely not where it's at.
MP is always an extra (unless its a MP based game like MAG or Counter Strike) if you disagree, you've only started gaming this gen and don't appreciate the true art of videogames.
Single IMO, but if your going to have multi and tote it (here's looking at you Bioshock 2), it should be well balanced.
most mp games are "if you've played one you've played them all." but for some reason reviewers will mark a game down for having a crappy MP, but outright lie about a shitty SP. (see Halo Reach, MW2, etc.)
single player games...its about experience ,story and stuff .... besides MP only gets addictive after a while and no fun
First person shooters succeed and fail on multiplayer, but for all other genres it should be single-player.
There are times I may need to play offline...and during that stretch if the game is crap I won't want to keep it regardless of multiplayer. Plus lets face it...how often have you seen a really crappy single player element with a great online element. Just typically donesn't happen.
Some games are sole purpose is for multiplayer entertainment. While others are made for single player with tacked on multiplayer. My only complaint is when they make a game that originally always was a great single player.. then they tack on multiplayer.. and cheapen and shorten up the single player game in hopes you will love it still with the extra multiplayer option(good note GTA4). Most FPS its a given now days they better create a good multiplayer experience. It does suck some of them FPS have a 3 hour story mode. To me it cheapens the game and rehashes the same thing over and over. I guess really it just depends on the gamming market and whats in and whats not at the moment.
whatever aspect gives the game the most immersive experience. Most of the time its single-player but some games shine in the multiplayer.. such as BC2, and COD4.
It depends what game it is and how good is its single player and multiplayer. If you asked me what is more important for the uncharted series I would say single player but if you ask me about call of duty I would say multiplayer.
Depends on what type of player you are. Some people prefer multi, other prefer single. I play both.
Single player is more important.Multi player is important if the game wants to survive an extended amount of time.
single so long as the story has a think plot line and twists and turns to keep yo on edge......unfortunately for most first person shooters that is where it falls short as sad as it is
Single player for me. A bit of mp is good now and again, but I get get bored fairly quickly.
