    Only Stranded Deep but unfortunately that's become a water-harvesting, potato-hunting game.

    I mostly play single-player games these days. I get to enjoy the story lines more and usually better graphics in these types of games.

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

    Hmm, I tend to play games that have a single player (or co-op) story based campaign, which then leads to the multiplayer aspect afterwards. I think they still work well together, especially for those of us who just want to relax while playing a game without it becoming something competitive unless you want it to.

    Which is probably why I haven't purchased a purely multiplayer game and likely never will.

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

    It's a fine balance - gamers may adopt a title based on its single-player credentials, but if you want to keep them playing for months or years to come, you'll likely need an evolving online experience to keep them hooked.
    Emm,not always - tell that to anyone who plays Bethesda single player RPGs,or those from CDPR,etc. Playthroughs can last 100s of hours,maybe even more.

    Sure,there are games like Planetside 2,TF2,Diablo 3,etc which I have played for years too,but a single player open world RPG can be relevant for a very long time.

    Edit!!

    Thats the thing in terms of games which can have an impact - thing of games like the Mass Effect trilogy,Bioshock,etc they usually tend to be single player games. Its much easier to generate meaningful narratives in a single player game,instead of relying on the random actions of online players.

    I only ever play single player games as I prefer to do my own thing and enjoy the game.

    I pretty much only play single player games and those single player games that have a local network co-op option.

    Mostly single player and co-op that's restricted to a couple of friends like borderlands or payday. Recently played Tera on ps4 and havin to drop into groups with the public was a disaster.

    Single player pretty much all the way for me. At least I can pause the game when I need to do something (which is often)
