I didn't say you were, but name calling is the last ditch effort of the desperate--those who can't win on the merits, and so they feel like they need to resort to calling people asses. Doing so makes you look impotent. My recommendation that you avoid appearing so was friendly advice. Your calling me an ass wasn't.Originally Posted by mym6
My very first description prefaced everything with: "It would be a separate mode, not the 1st person mode." My basic point was that there is no such thing as a game with only one character--if a game can include AI and not be ruined, it can Just as easily include human players.Originally Posted by mym6
It's not about boycotting. People have basic expectations of their games, and they should get the games that meet their gaming needs. If someone doesn't want to play through a 1 player world one time and then have no further use of the game, they look for titles with multiplayer. People are still playing the original Halo (which I agree is over-rated) ONLY because it includes a robust multiplayer function--the games' life was extended beyond imagination. Without multiplayer it would have been barely noticed. People who want that type of experience should only buy games that have it. Those people aren't demanding that you can't have your single player experience--but you were demanding that they not have their multiplayer experience, even though despite your claims, it need not detract from the single player mode.Originally Posted by mym6
You're right though, the Metroid franchise has proved its worth without multiplayer. Part of the evidence of this is how many non-Metroid fans would love to buy it if it came with a good multiplayer mode. The franchise had a chance to expand its user base (And its sales) dramatically.
What riles me up is that people are so resistant to change, they can't imagine change ever being a good thing. You've yet to say anything about multiplayer that people didn't once say about the 3D first person perspective when it was new. There are impossible things in the world, but creating innovative multiplayer modes that meet the standards of MP universe is not one of them.
How generous of you. Out of my own sense of generosity, I'm going to highlight a flaw in your logic.Originally Posted by mym6
You said: People not buying a game that doesn't meet their needs is as bad as Me not buying a game because it does meet their needs.
