Why All the Hate On Co-Op?

#1xX_J_Dog666_XxPosted 12/17/2010 1:46:33 PM
Honestly, the only arguments I've seen on these boards against co-op is "it will ruin my single player experience" or "it will wreck the game for me"

Seriously guys? In what way would co-op ruin your single player experience? If you prefer to play by yourself (which I usually do) then... wait for it... DON'T OPEN A CO-OP LOBBY!!!! This completely optional feature, which would open the game up to a much wider audience and add a sweet gimmick, would totally ruin your experience while not playing right? NO!!!

I really preffered playing Borderlands by myself, so I didn't open up my lobby! What a genius idea! Sometimes it was nice to play with a party though, which was a great feature to have. I'd love to do dungeon crawls, quests, or just explore with my friends, maybe even duke it out! And TES could pull it off marvelously, without all the micro management, level gaps, and monthly fees of traditional MMO's.

So to all those who think Co-Op will detract from the single player... STFU!

THe problem is that the game would have to be severely gimped for coop to work.
Same screen like in Fable
No sleeping
No resting
No fast traveling
No exploring alone

I beg to differ my friend. The no rest thing is legit, but the rest they could totally work around

It wouldn't work for a game this big. There are many cells that divide up the map into manageable parcels for the xbox to handle, it would be a laggy loadfest

you couldn't fast travel alone, both characters would have to otherwise the time would get messed up

They could always do it like Red Dead Redemption, have free roam multiplayer and then optional side games for people to play, like the gang hideouts and co-op missions. Worked fine there.

You guys keep getting caught up in the LITTLE THINGS!!

Fast travel together? Check, small sacrifice to make.

If they go out of range... just load the map for one person... THEY ARE ON SEPERATE XBOX'S GENIUS!

rest together (no homo)? Check, small sacrifice to make.
