Blog 3/Week 5: Single Player vs Multiplayer Games.

I’ve actually written a similar topic on this on one of my friend’s blog just over a year ago but I think I’ll touch on it again, perhaps on a different angle this time round.

Are single player games better than multiplayer games? Or vice versa? The terms are pretty much self-explanatory. Each of these types of games offer a variety of concepts and options, suiting the needs of players with certain tastes and preferences. Some people can say that it really depends on the type of game one is playing. For instance, first person shooter games are designed to incorporate multiplayer gaming more so than single player gaming, also the social aspect of multiplayer games is the main thing for players. As for single player gaming, well if one looks for narrative/story and wants to be fully immersed then this would be the option for them. In saying that, single player gaming is all about the experience.

There are heaps of pros and cons for both but in the end, it all comes down to personal preference, one can like one over the other or pretty much enjoy both types of gaming.
