there is a growing trend in games these days, that requires you to play either online or socially in almost every game. and its getting worse. i dont know where you got the idea that gamers hate playing games by themselves, because i for one (who has been gaming since 1985 btw) LOATHE gaming socially. i hate other people. i hate playing games with other people. i hate hearing them whine, and gloat, and bitch, and i hate hate HATE being dependent on OTHER people to be able to accomplish things in a game. i am a person who has spent my life relying on myself, and learning that if you want something done, you can ONLY rely on yourself. this goes against EVERYTHING in social gaming. forcing me to game with others, forces me to rely on people who are not reliable, to complete game objectives. people who i cannot control, or depend on, to be there. and to talk to people.. that majority of which, are a-holes.
this is stupid.
whos idea was this anyway?
bring back the single player experience.
online is nice, playing with your friends is cool, BUT STOP MAKING IT A FUCKING REQUIREMENT.
it should be an OPTION.
sincerely, a life long gamer, who is extremely worried about the future of gaming.
