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

    I think Its totally lazy, jumping on the bandwagon of "Battle Royale", greedy AAA company's this day and age leaving out the most Important part of a game which Is the single player story driven part of a franchise Is a sad time. I do play a lot of online like PUBG, Left 4 dead 2 (Greatest game ever) destiny 2, vermintide 2, to mention a few but some days I just want to play a good game all by myself

    SP by preference - I like to win and I like knowing that it's possible to win, especially since I've paid for it.

    PvP games pit you against cheaters, haxorz and mouthy kids who have nothing better to do than play games repetitively all day every day, refining their twitch-shooting abilities to levels far beyond anything I could manage even when I had their kind of free time.
    If my idea of fun was getting my backside handed to me over and over by Rubbish who live to abuse others, I'd walk naked out of my house to pick fights with the local gang of 'persons of transient nature'... At least then I'd not need to drop thousands on a gaming PC and hundreds on the DLC for it.

    At the insistence of a friend, I recently tried PlayerUnknown's Jogging Simulator and managed 66 minutes of empty space, running, glitching, sticking and server downtime, as well as a 2:5 KDR, before I swore lots and got the stoopid thing refunded. Pleas to try Fortnight instead ("It's soooo much better, despite being the exact same thing") have fallen upon a heart of stone.

    Yes. I'm not into multiplayer at all. I'm over 50 and I can't compete with the young twitch wizards these days.

    I play mostly single-player story-driven games.

    Yes & almost exclusively. I spend all day wrangling people. Gaming time is my time away.

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

    Overwhelmingly single-player games. As a somewhat senior gamer I can no longer compete with younger people with the reflexes of a striking mongoose, and the manners of a rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish-house rat. WoT used to be fun but now irretrievably broken.

    Haven’t found a collaborative play game that suits me so far

    Sounds like we have the same issues with online gaming!

    Indeed I do and nowadays I only really play co-op games online rather than competitive ones.

    I only play single player or solo gaming. I'm middle aged and can't keep up w/ the young kids. Plus, they cheat (sometimes). I just want to relax and have fun.

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

    Much prefer single player FPS games - example - Far Cry series. With the freedom of open world games, you can come back to tackle a situation in so many different ways.
    I have tried online and found it repetitive and boring. My first experience in Fortnite was underwhelming due to being killed 4 times in a row before I could take one step. I persevered and eventually got to run around a while before being killed, but the action and environment are so limited and no real puzzles to overcome. It is just kill or be killed within a shrinking arena, wait for a reset and do the same thing over, ad infinitum.
    Have tried home LAN with a few friends and that can be a good laugh, this is less common due to the hassles. And the only multiplayer I do like to play is on a friend's older 3D TV (polarized) with a gaming console. It can have 2 people playing the same game on the same screen (mostly car racing games) and with the glasses, you get to see your game on the whole screen while the other player has their own different view (not the 50:50 split screen). But it is only occasionally when we can get together

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

    Decent ping in our country is a luxury. (Tried to play COD:WWII and For Honor but the connection is always in Strict NAT)
    Getting 1 game is already sapping my wallet. So, I'm better with single player games.
    And besides, I'm kinda introvert.

    I only have the internet via satellite, so it is single player games all the way for me

    Pretty much SP only these days for me. Last game I played a lot of online was GTAV on 360 but even that was mainly just me racing and doing missions on my own in GTAO. Will probably do the same when RDR2 comes out.

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

    I play mostly single player games. Once in a while, I'll go back to an oldie in Joint Operations and play that one with others but it seems that the numbers of players are dwindling on it.
