    The only multiplayer game I currently play is World Of Warcraft. Everything else is primarily single player.

    I ONLY play single player games. Don't have the free time to commit to playing multiplayer and have not found one that's kept my attention for long.

    I mainly play single player games but do occasionally like Destiny 2 & Titanfall 2 multiplayer on PS4. Few year ago I did get into CoD : Advanced Warfare multiplayer on PC and enjoyed it but after playing BO3 on Steam gave up as the other players were just to toxic and abusive

    Re: QOTW: Do you still play single-player games?

    I play both. I'm into management sims and strategy games which both lean toward single player but I have played grand strategy games like Solaris, Crusader Kings 2 and various civs multiplayer, although almost exclusively with IRL friends.

    I've never played an MMORPG but did get quite into Planetside 2 and World of Warships for a while. In both cases it was through a community (based around a large UK based PC gaming website & it's forums/discord server) that was well mannered and friendly. So even if the public channels were full of people shouting slurs my team channel was full of civilised people.

    There are a few games I'll play online publicly as other people's chat is easily ignored and they're better than the single player bots: Rocket League comes to mind for that.

    That said, I'd still save 3/4 of my gaming is single player. That's changing as the kids get old enough to play local co-op though.

    I find the other good thing about playing single player games is you can wait for sales etc, with the multiplayer twitch fests if you not there on day one you will get left behind, of course buying games on day one if rather more expensive.

    favourite game type is turn based game, and that is a pain to play with others, also cant imagine playing the witcher as a multiplayer game.

    I mainly play single player games, I'm currently catching up on the Assassin's Creed series. I do play a bit of Destiny 2 with friends though

    With the amount of toxicity and cheating in many online games, I almost exclusively play single player games lately.

    Re: QOTW: Do you still play single-player games?

    I prefer single player games or ones with optional local/online multiplayer. Some single player only games are ruined by a lack of co-op or multiplayer, whereas other games are ruined by not having enough single player options.

    To clarify, some single-player only games, especially where you control two characters, should have co-op modes, but don't. This is frustrating for puzzle/action games that emulate Portal, but don't provide the co-op mode. Other games try to force online multiplayer instead of providing a decent single-player experience.

    Other games try to offer the best of both. SWTOR, though far from perfect, can provide you a full single-player story experience with no interaction with other players or can provide a full, collaborative experience from your first time logging in.

    Re: QOTW: Do you still play single-player games?

    I mainly play single player games, at the moment I'm playing Fallout 4 again trying to get to 1000 hours play time on steam I'm 990 now (sad I know).
    The only multiplayer game I play is World of Warships but I only play 3-4 games then I stop.

    Re: QOTW: Do you still play single-player games?

    I do mostly play single player open world games. But I find it weird when in the game, I'm stuck in a traffic jam, or driving a forklift.

    My son prefers real opponents, I think maybe the AI opponents are too predictable.

    Single player games are all I play. It's rather sad to see them in decline.
