none of what you said made sense to me, why do you respect it less? it's just as challenging to make a MP game as a SP game.A mid game can be carried by social interaction. I play games for interesting unique worlds, challenge and experiences, not as a social tool. Most mainstream gamers only play games to hang out with thier friends, there are plenty of games out there for you if that's what your after. Playing with friends can be fun but I respect it less.
Just because there are plenty of MP games doesn't mean they appeal to me anymore, we need refreshes and newer ideas.
