Single player or multiplayer?

Which do you prefer?

For me online is for a laugh and to just give a game longer life but the heart of a game should be the single player. Thats the reason I play games cos I like to escape into a fantasy world.

I know everyones different and lots of people like online more then single player on games.

What's your preference?

Single player mostly for me.:smashin: I do enjoy multiplayer but I can never get regular gaming time at predetermined times making it difficult to hook up with regular players so I tend to play most games with randoms... which isn't always good... actually it's mostly very childish and sweary...:thumbsdow

Single player I can dip in and out of at anytime.:smashin:

I make a point of completing the single player to get used to the controls but then its MP all the way.

I like single player gaming, especially after a long day at work so I can switch off from life for a bit. Otherwise, I do like playing online, but working shifts normally means that I miss playing with my friends and end up with a bunch of kids who have just learnt to swear :(

I like to play single player with the view that when I finish it, I'll be good enough to try multiplayer. Never works though as I'm still rubbish at multiplayer. I do prefer the idea of playing against a human instead of a computer though, so much more satisfaction when you 'outhink' someone..
 
Would have said multiplayer awhile ago up until I snapped my MW2 disc in a fit of rage.

I miss the early days of Counter Strike betas for HL1, use to sit up all night on my 56k connection.

I only play CoD and FIFA/PES games online - everything else is single player for me.

Single player mostly, but I do spend a fair bit of time glued to the PC for online gaming, played Return To Castle Wolfenstein (PC) for approx 7 years and spend abit of time with CoD4 MW/MW2.

Single player for me. I very rarely have time to commit to online gaming. I need something I can pick up and turn off if I need to.
 
To quote the great Mr. Han Solo:

"Good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living, that's something else"

I do enjoy a bit of single player and who knows on the better games you are even privilaged to a bit of story telling and character development. Some games are purely made for Single Player...

However i got an xbox and xbox live all those years ago because i wanted to play against real people, it always makes a game that much more fun and entertaining; to be cursed and to curse (to oneself - i don't believe in trash talking and find it immature and pointless) but also to admire and be admired (on a gaming level of course, no nobel peace prizes here) - the computer dosen't know or appreciate frustration so there's no ultimate victory against it :D

single player, so much so i dont actually have xbox live gold anymore because it was wasting money for the amount i actually used it.

I like a game with a good story and i dont mind playing games like GOW as co-op online (yes it's because i'm not great against people).

I prefer the old days of you and 3 mates crammed around a 14' TV and a copy of goldeney, i somewhat enjoyed the look of horror on their face when i picked up the golden gun :devil: You just don't get that level of fun trash talk and terror online, but system linking works fine for me, it's a nice mix of the 2
