I'm with you. I'm basically antisocial by nature, so I don't play to make friends or buddy up, etc. It's cool when people work together on Voip enabled games, but invariably some jerk on a power trip starts ordering people around and castigating teammates. This causes me real stress sometimes and drags me into a shouting match, which I don't need. Real life is stressful enough...

I do enjoy the challenge of multiplayer RTS's, I'm really enjoying Men of War. Lots of fun, and most players are Russian, so I can't understand their text. There is a simple ping system for significant events on the map.

Because it lacks purpose. I prefer if I am to have fun with friends, I want to do it AFK. I play SP on the PC/Consoles and that's it. I especially hate the point collecting/leveling up some games offer. It essentially takes all the fun away and it becomes a never ending struggle for the gamer to collect points. As if anyone should care how many points you have in Battlefield or what level you are in World of Warcraft.

I will admit that I hate the social aspect at times (XBL punks are the worst), but I am a very competitive person so I enjoy it even when I have them muted. Also, playing games with friends online is great fun. Almost as good as playing with them in the same room.

I'm with you, I wish they would stop making single player games altogether. When they add single player to a multiplayer game it really messes with the whole intent of the multiplayer game. They usually have to make it noob friendly for the SP.

It's all about the 'being there' atmosphere and RL escape for me nowadays.

Mp does nothing for me either since i don“t do it for the competition. For me it“s about escaping reality and visiting other peoples imaginary worlds and fascinating stories. Great gameplay backed with atmospheric graphics and sound is my thing.

I love everything from Stalker to Bioshock to over the top games like DMC 4 and Lost Planet

a balanced mix between single and multi player is a must.

Both type have strengths and weaknesses.

I've never played MP...I think I'm gonna start though.

I hear COD4 has a pretty good MP, what do you guys think ?

What I hate is that people plays mmos and arcade craps. I prefer simulations and realistic games like ArmA or Red Orchestra but there's not too many people that now what's the deal.

I think people who don't like mp games generally, it's because they suck at them as far as competitively. MP is a lot of fun but can suck just as bad when you suck at the game in mp.

I know from first hand exp. both ways and just being honest.

Given I've played FPS games constantly my whole life, often on the hardest modes, I doubt that is my issue. There are people who just aren't competitive, you know.
