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..

It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

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.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

^ 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.

still not getting it. The "vibe" is that everyone wants to "game with a buddy" - "and now we have the tech to finally let everyone play with everyone" - yay!!!!!

uh. no. I game to get AWAY from people not to interact and team up.

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.
