Is the end of the "Single Player gaming" in the air?

So SICK of companies pushing social gaming..I want a game. I want a story. I want to play ALONE. When I read a book I don't need a room full of people to read it with..

is the end of the Single Player in the air?

It's the vibe I'm getting. They're focusing heavily on the "social" side of things.

that.

and they act like EVERYONE loves it - there's no word or ANY sign that ANYONE doesn't like it - that's the scary part.

you can still socialize about single player games.

^ That.

The Wii U has almost all these "new" PS4 social features, yet, NSMB U was a fantastic single player experience, with all the social features implemented.

Snap.

Drive Club looks amazing, but is "team play" I'm a lone wolf when gaming, I go to the pub to socialise in rl or I come on here for my cyber fix. I don't know where this is heading either.

In late 2011 an actual study was conducted on gamers' habits. Not just surveys, you know, a genuine study (I'm too lazy to find a link, you've got google), and almost 80% said they still spent a majority of their gaming time in SP.

The industry can only force it so hard.
