Good riddance. I'm so tired of horrible multiplayer just thrown in. Such as in Uncharted and Tomb Raider. God forbid you have to play a game by yourself.

The stupidest part being that all these online shooters, such as CoD, that have no local multiplayer. Why can't me and three friends play alone together in our house? It's a helluva lot more fun.


uncharted 3 is still very active and is a great third person competitive MP.

Multiplayer is awesome. If Miyamoto wants to design an awesome game. Then give us multiplayer. Mario Kart, Zelda, and Metroid would be great franchises for the online sport.

Uncharted actually has a very robust online and call of duty has local MP.

PS+ has paid it's self for me. So from here on out I will refer to any new games as free.

well i don't agree with this article, why is it that game developers still keep on persisting on using online mp in singler player games? tomb raider and god of war ascension is recent examples of tacked on mp, not only that they force trophy hunters to play online for platinum, its never going to end, the last of us is another example of why online mp will never stop.

I really don't see this at all to be honest! If anything, games have become much more focused on multiplayer.

they have no choice, cods takes most of all multiplayer gamers, other games will just fail with multiplayer, its a wasted resource, they have to find other ways to incorporate online features in games, different than cod way of multiplayer

something like dark souls, animal crossing, other type of online usage

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

I know I'd be peeved as hell if it was determined that Nintendo's inclusion of online bits, and their lack of knowledge of how to implement them, in their big first party titles is what's causing this hold up on releases.
