No multiplayer? NO THANKS!

Nowadays people seem to dismiss any game with no multiplayer in it. This is disturbing because great games may be overlooked just because it didn’t have that bullet point in the back of the box.

This has come up recently with regards to Platinum games’ newest game Vanquish.  A lot of people have said that the game looks cool to them but since there is no multiplayer they cannot justify spending 65 dollars on it.  Are they serious? If the game looks cool to you why would you not want to buy it? Where were these people 20 years ago? Back in the day there was co-op in games but there was no multiplayer and people didn’t complain.  If you were able to play games then with no multiplayer what is the difference now?

Perhaps video games companies are to blame because single player modes are becoming shorter and shorter but if the single player is fun and engaging it shouldn’t matter how long it lasts. If a great movie is an hour long, it’s still a great movie. The same thing applies to video games.

People should really look for quality in games and not just whether it has multiplayer or not. Just because a game has multiplayer it does not make it a better or more worthwhile game than one that doesn’t.

    let multiplayer and co-op are not the same but close and similar because you are playing online.

    At least if a game can have co-op even without multiplayer, people would buy the game.

    Just because the game looks good doesn’t mean people would pay $65 for a 6hour game with only a challenge mode. Where are the unlocks?
