I had this thought pop up in my head, awhile ago, out of no where. I believe I was playing Red Dead Redemption the Undead Nightmare campaign and I was wondering how many prevere online or offline.
It’s a big deal for a game to have multiplayer, or the masses wouldn’t buy it. So, it’s big pressure for the game companies to produce, or they may lose out on some revenue. Back in the 90’s, online wasn’t a big deal. So why is it now? Quite frankly, I prefer offline mode over online mode. No snotty kid on the mic making racial slurs or the likes, no elitist attitudes….Just me and maybe some in-the-room-with-a-controller friends. Now, I do go online every now and then, and I do like it. But, I don’t see what’s the big deal of it. If I happen to buy a game and the online functions isn’t on I’m not even going to care.
Offline is what matter’s to me.
To the people who make a big deal about the multiplayer “sucking” makes no sense to me. Personally, producers spend so much time trying to perfect multiplayer that they hardly spend on the campaign side of things. To be brutally honest, I will pick a excellent campaign/offline modes game over a perfect multiplayer/online game ANY DAY. Now to you that may sound like a elitist attitude(The irony of that, huh?) and I hope that you don’t get the wrong impression of me, but to me I think that’s the only way to go. I recently did a review over Call of Duty: Black ops, and that game among fans and critics alike is heavily known for there multiplayer/online game. I guess that’s why majority brought it; Not me though lol I brought it for the story and gameplay. I want to play the offline modes they work so hard on(Or in some people cases, work so little for….To each it’s own). Which is only Campaign and Zombie mode.
I still play the Madden series, and most of the time the are full of offline modes. They work hard on that game(Although, it’s only the roster updates). I do like that. I do like the challenge from friends face to face. I don’t feel the same way about playing online with people who I don’t know. I go online just for the fun(As I know most of you may do). I strictly believe that online mode should be the “icing on the cake” terminology. After the producers spend a considerable long time on the offline modes the work on the online is there “treat”, so to speak, for us. Not the other way around!
Then again, this is just my views. And my opinion is minuscule from others. Like a tiny blip on a radar. One day I hope they listen, I may never know. Enough of my babbling, what is your take on this situation? Do you agree or disagree?
