Tuesday Chat: February 4


Grand Theft Auto V has sold over 30 million copies, proving that the series is a juggernaut. Despite it's popular online mode, it's probably fair to say that the single player experience is what made the series what it is, which goes to prove that despite the many popular multiplayer games out there, single player games still have plenty of appeal.


There is certainly plenty of proof out there that single player is very popular, Skyrim sold over 20 million copies and the Assassin's Creed series, which itself is a multi-million selling franchise, is definitely more popular for its single player experience. Nintendo also provide plenty of excellent single player experiences. So even though the hype generally surrounds multiplayer games, it's nice to know that there is still love out there for the single player. 

But what about you? Where do your loyalties lie? Do you still feel that single player is relevant, or is it all about multiplayer?

Let's Chat!

I like to mix it up with both singleplayer and multiplayer :) recently though i've been doing alot of multiplayer and i've grown rather bored! lucky my wii-u is coming to rescue me, a nice man called ian is delivering it today between 12-22 and 13-22

I'm all about single player unless there is a compelling co-operative mode. This is mainly because I am shit at competitive games and tend to swear and punch my leg a lot while playing them.

Single player mainly for me, I used to enjoy online multiplayer a lot, but then it became popular and online filled up with arseholes. I still play online occasionally, but mute everybody because I really don't need to hear all that racist homophobic crap.

ijust plain dont like much multiplayer, just light multiplayer elements is fine but full on multiplayer modes i just cant deal with, i have kids and no ability to pause means i have to abandon the game over and over, drop in drop out co op is fine which is why im looking forward to destiny

Prefer my single player games do like a good co op story like Gears played 2 3 and judgement with 3 or 4 of us. Multiplayer is usually mainly shooters and I suck at them so dont really play them

I'm the same, I love a good single player game, mainly because I am not that quick at competitive MP. What annoys me is the way that MP has to be shoe-horned into everything, e.g. Assassins Creed, Tomb Raider. It is just not necessary. Joe if you ditch your PS4, what will you do with no BF4?

Single player, first and foremost. Multiplayer only interests me if it's couch co-op or I have a few friends with the same game and they play online. Seeing as on the PS4 I have practically none of those, single player games are all that calls for me there. Same on my 3DS. I wish more games focused on their single player modes too, as games such as Battlefield and CoD are seriously let down (for me) with their lack of imagination in that department.

I'll never ditch my ps4 dave that'll always be my main console.

Good selection, I would highly recommend Lego City and Wonderful 101 too.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Lego city will be a purchase for sure but i've been looking at wonderful 101 and tbh i just can't see me liking it.

I'll give it ago, i was on the fence when it came to pikmin aswell but i saw it at a good price and pounced.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yeah, Pikmin is fun, there's some free DLC for it too, same with Sonic.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
There was two editions of the Sonice game so i was stuck between which one to go for as there was an £11 difference between them, so i played it safe and went with the cheaper version thinking the DLC for the more expensive one may be on the is it eShop?
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I'm not sure, the bonus DLC in the deadly six version doesn't amount to much though, just a NiGHTS level and a bunch of power ups. Don't know why they are charging that much extra for it, was the same price on release.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Sorry eStore should i say..

any idea when we can expect the reviews for LEGO MOVIE GAME bit worried as there have been not many game play vids hope its a bit different to the usual lego games
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I shouldn't worry, it's being made by TT so should be alright, and from what I've heard it's had some tweaks from the standard formula.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar

It is kinda depressing looking at the coming soon on the Wii U on here there is only 10 games! Even the Vita has more to preorder at the moment.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
It isn't much of a concern for me the slow stream of games with it being my secondary console but if it was my main i'd be rather pissed.
Dead's avatar

New Yoshis Island will plug the gap nicely.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Isnt Yoshis Island 3ds not Wii U. What is definately missing from the Wii U is a JRPG.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Yes it's 3DS only.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
It's Nintendo, you didn't specify Wii U or 3DS.

I prefer Single Player over Multiplayer, unless the MP is a co-op like Soul Sacrifice (perfect example of how a game should be build)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Single Player, unless it is integrated into the game like Demon's/Dark Souls & a game that requires actual teamwork like Dota 2
