Taken from POTD, rank what kind of multiplayer you enjoy the most

#1Worm199Posted 9/3/2014 1:43:45 PM
From the options given in the poll:

One on One - Matching up against one other player

Team vs Team - One group of players against another

Deathmatch - Everybody against everybody, a free-for-all

Cooperative - Working together to beat the AI

Massively Multiplayer - A whole world of players and enemies

How would you rank them from what you enjoy the least to most?

My ranking would go this:

Team vs. Team > One on One > Cooperative = Deathmatch >>>>> Massively Multiplayer

The first four options are in general very close for me, but I do prefer the team vs. team option the most, as it combines Cooperative with One on One. Deathmatch is also fun, as it becomes a war for everbody. One on One is extremely stressful, but for me by far the most satisfying kind of multiplayer to win at.

I don't like MMO's. I find them a burden to get started in, and it consist of a lot of people who just wants to act like jerks to you. Finding the right gank and working together with them is pretty fun though.

Deathmatch, I'm used to fighting 4+ people at once because of my Quake/Half life DM upbringing.

Team vs Team (with big enough teams, and people that can drop in and out of the game at will) is how I like it best casually. Most games aren't like that anymore though, so I don't play any team vs team games anymore.

Then Cooperative when you have friends to play with.

1v1 for more serious play. Fighting games, etc. It can be rewarding to do it that way. I would never in a million year go competitive in a team based environment. I like 1v1 that are essentially tests of mindgames and who has the most balls.

I despise Deathmatch/FFA. Its cheap and annoying.

MMOs generally means they hide the fun beneath so much crap and grind. I've not seen a modern MMO with fun open world PvP either. Rock bottom.

Team v Team
Massive multiplayer
then Deathmatch and Cooperatively are tied for last.

1v1 because i love fighting games.
TvT for anything else because its just a good time
Massive multiplayer because WoW got me into it.
and Death match can get kinda boring. and Coop bores me to no end. I kind of hate horde modes in games.
This is why we can't have nice things.

I really dislike 1v1 because it makes the game seem much more competitive and personal and less casual/fun.

Coop. Sadly not many games do it or do it well.

Team Vs Team > Cooperative > One Vs One > Deathmatch = Massive Multiplayer

I like playing FPS games, so unless it's Quake I enjoy a team environments instead of 1 vs 1. In second place I put Cooperative because I enjoy playing coop games VS AI with my friends. Games like Borderlands 2, Gauntlet, Dead Island Epidemic where you have to work together to defeat the enemy AI and there's also some kind of RPG element attached to the game.

1 vs 1 is third because I don't really enjoy games that cater to that style of fighting; like fighting games. I don't play them much and the only FPS I can think of that actually has good 1 vs 1 play is Quake which I don't mind playing at all.

I really hate the idea of Deathmatch especially if there are no teams and it's a free for all. That means kill stealing, always having to watch your back and front. It's just extremely frustrating to me. I was never into PvP in MMO games, I always played them for the RPG elements. The fact that someone who has spend more time to acquire better gear means they can always beat you is a real turn off to me.
