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

    I gave Fortnite a go... didn't think much of it. Last game I played online and enjoyed was Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the original) with my flatmate. SO GOOD.

    But yeah, most of my time is devoted to Kerbal Space Program Single player ftw

    Put off online games by gamers who are only out to mess up your game. I do prefer a good story anyway :-)

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

    With the rabid cheaters in MP I rarely play online games anymore. If I do play it's a co-op game like L4D2 or TF2 where an admin can ban the bastards. So many griefers and trolls in an MP game that co-op/SP is the way to go. I really love SP story lines also. MP is usually more for people that like to get together and talk strategy. I'm more of a gung-ho person and hate most stealth games.

    I'm not convinced they are. Many more games are made these days than 20 years ago, I'd be surprised if the total number of single player games has dropped, just the number that have multiplayer have increased.

    The difference is that the marketing budgets of the biggest publishers (EA, Activision Blizzard, Ubi,) are aimed at those that have large multiplayer elements. The tier below that still has many single player games and even those at the very top can have compelling single player. GTA V is the biggest selling game of all time and you can spend 100s of hours in that without touching multiplayer.

    Weirdly I see less cheating than I used to. Maybe I'm playing the wrong (or right,) games for it.

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

    I used to play a lot of counter strike online within a Clan, playing with people I knew was and still is always better than the public servers. A lot of games need team work and you very rarely find that unless you are part of a clan/team

    Generally these days I play single player games as I prefer the stories and being able to explore the worlds at my own pace.

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

    Umm, I hardly play any other games. As for online MP titles, I've only played like a dozen in my whole life, and maybe a couple more with local coop. Meanwhile, only last month I have finished two SP titles: Doom and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. And while I have given a couple of MP games a good few hundred of hours (LoL, JK3 and both Titanfalls), that's about as much time as I have played Morrowind alone.

    The only exception: Neverwinter Nights 2, I have spent a decade playing it online only, but gradually moved from playing to modding over last three or four years. Other than that, though, I hardly give any attention to online games - not because I don't like them, just prefer gameplay better served in single player.

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

    I don't enjoy online gaming much anymore. About 15 years ago+ I did a lot of Clan gaming with Quake 3 type games. It was a much better exprience then, you got to know people better in those days, now you're just a number.

    I still play games which are online capable, e.g. Elite Dangerous, but I tend to play alone.

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

    I mainly play single player. Multiplayer requires time and commitment of which I am very committed and time locked to parenthood currently. Used to enjoy a bit of Battlefield bad company 2 back in the day but its all become to focused on grinding and buying map packs now.

    I would say it is a 50-50 on my playtime. I try to avoid spending too much time on multiplayer games and only do play them with friends.

    Mostly I only play single player. Sometimes a co-op game but with a few friends at most.

    I play mostly single player games. I also play a few MMOs (Elder Scrolls Online, Neverwinter, D&D Online, Sword Coast Legends), but I play them alone, never as part of a group.

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

    Too many juveniles, trolls, griefers, cheaters, sociopaths in MP. At least bots don't cheat. I also tend to have relatively high latency, which doesn't help me avoid death in a MP FPS. It's unfortunate that most companies spend most of their budgets on MP. If they'd invest more in SP, I'm sure they could make far smarter, more competitive AI for offline play. Publishers, EA for one, got it in their heads that it'd be a great idea to force people to go online even just to load up the game for SP. That's just stupid, and they consequently don't get my money.
