With an ever increasing emphasis on multiplayer gaming, regardless if the network is working or not, why is it so important? Or is it not?

Multiplayer is important, coop and/or competitive, because it helps unite people from around the world. Of course there are always ignorant people who argue with that but it's a good tool for two completely different people to talk about something they both have in common.

well i think i all depends on the game. For shooters i think multiplayer is important and it should be standard now n days as well as co-op. The only problem I see with some shooters is that the co-op is only online i think they should all have split screens as well as online play. action adventures i fell doesn't need online play I mean honestly can you picture a bunch of kratos's running around on the screen beating the crap out of each other ( hmm i guess in theory it sounds good but the game would most likely look and play horrible). Anyway moving on i feel RPGs can do multiplayer pretty well look at what pokemon has done. multiplayer is important to the pokemon series for multiple reasons . most other genres like racing, sports, fighting, party,ect should have multiplayer standard now n days

on another note need for speed hot pursuit was a good racing game but not having a split screen was a fail. drunk party night's with no racing split screen action is a fail.

Let us put it simply: you can play a single player maybe 2-3 times before you really begin to get bored of it and learn al the small, finite details. With Multiplayer available, you now have infinite replay ability as the matches are never the same. You can go online and choose the same game mode, but the people you play with will never be the same for long. It is a good way to extend the life of a game and to let people commune with others elsewhere in the world.

Well how else are 13 year olds going to call people f*ggots without getting beat up?


Anyways how else would we shot our buddy in the back or toss a grenade at him? Split screen is way too distracting and shooting strangers is fun fun fun

It's important for people that like to compete and interact, but if you like to play alone, it isn't neccessary

I think that it depends on the game whether or not it needs multiplayer. A game like Brink (A new fully online shooter by Splash Damage) needs multiplayer or it would fail, but a series like mass effect of fallout doesn't need multiplayer to be a hit.

True, true...but just give one a few shots of testosterone, and BAM, they tend to act like that. It is pretty bad at times, but I do agree that 13 year olds are the biggest pain on the online gaming community. It;s like they think they know everything...

Multiplayer does allot of things, it provides re-playability, its gives game developers a way to divert gamer's attentions while they produce new games, and it also flues a new way for that game to become known "machinima".

I personally don't care for multiplayer as I can never find an online team that will be as serious as I am in game to work together towards the goal, everyone thinks they can go all "loan wolf" and win that way. Lets see how far that gets you when the zombie apocalypse hits.

Well, I have never had the chance to do multiplayer. So, to me it is not important.

I personally believe it's important because it's best to share such great experiences like Portal 2 with friends/family. I just wish more companies would do split-screen co-op instead of online multiplayer only

When done right a multiplayer feature can add a whole new mechanic to the game and extend the life of the game itself. A good example of it adding a great deal to the game would be:

Minecraft with its openness allows the players to make up their own modes with co-op or counter-op play. There is a severe lack of games that do counter-op well or at all. The online mode made the difference in me actually purchasing the game since it allowed for creation of any type of mode I wanted. Sandbox games like minecraft I feel really benefit from online play unlike some other games that it feels tacked on to sell more copies.






Also as of now there still is a limit on what we can do with AI within games. After awhile, most people playing will learn the movements of the Ai within the game. Adding a human adds another mechanic and a bit of randomness needed to make it enjoyable.

Personally, I just can't stand it when they play their rap music thinking they are cool, but that is fun admittedly.

Nuh-uh. Sorry Noir, But warlock lvl85 ftw. That Technically makes it 2 lvl 85s or 1 lvl 170 character. Oh, and just having a Fel Guard is worth all the effort and armour restrictions.

Eh, personally I don't play multiplayer games all that often so I don't see it as important. I mostly play RPGs and single player games. You know, games with a storyline? I also play video games for entertainment and I fail to see the entertainment in playing FPS with a bunch of pre-pubescent dipshits. Even if they are easy to kill, it feels like a hollow victory when they yell childish abuse down a headset and you realise that you could've been doing more worthwhile things than wounding a half-retarded 13-year old's pride.
Playing split-screen with friends is fine but there's only so long that it can remain fun and split-screen appears to be on the downturn anyway.

The reason multi-player is growing is while a computer is challenging, no video game AI have been challenging as a human on the other side of the screen. you don't see MLG playing for the high score like the arcade days, and the reason for this is multi-player wasn't available.
