Is there anyone else who almost never plays multiplayer?

What is your reason?

Edit: never expected this to blow up like this thank you everyone

i don’t. i like stories and working through levels/missions and exploring the game’s world and don’t really like competing online.

Being able to go at your own pace is one of the things that make playing games enjoyable in my opinion

ID: hmt9x55

I like competing but I also like the pause button. So everyone just needs to chill while I go take a piss.

This is also me and also i am not very good

You likely could be good, but like myself, don’t have the patience or time to invest into a single game to get to other people’s level. There’s a lot of games out there and playing online multiplayer with people that have sunk hours and hours into a game just isn’t fun.

Years ago I loved mmorpgs. Now I exclusively play single player. My top reason why. Most people suck. I wanna enjoy a game not deal with people.

100% this

Other People always Ruins the fun

First and last multiplayer I played was RuneScape back in 2006/7

I loved mmorpgs when not everyone and their mom was boxing multiple accounts to form whole parties to avoid the multi-player aspect of an mmo

Yea most people do suck. Back when I still played Black Desert people would always try and get me to do stuff with them. Sometimes it's ok but majority of the time I was like "nahhh I really gotta take care of this stuff" then they would leave and I would proceed to spend the next 3 hours staring at the Central Market prices

The pause button is a necessity for me these days.

ID: hms6r0i

Yeah playing WoW these days is just pugging it with Chinese gold farmers. I miss the good ol days where it actually bred a community.

Yes. I game for the stories, escapism and to have a good, relaxed time. Not for competition or trash talking.

ID: hmthi6u

Yeah I'm 37. I find no joy or relaxation in getting my ass kicked by 12 year olds that all apparently fucked my mom and call me racial/homophobic slurs. I had my fill of that back in the early halo days and I'm over it.

ID: hmsqqyw

Exactly this. I'm not playing games for a prick measuring contest or to do homework for the "meta". I just want to chill and relax and have fun.

I don't like competitive.

I feel like it brings out the worst in people and people get super toxic when they compete. It's also much easier if I can play on my own time, whereas most competitive games take constant play and equipment upgrades and right now I just don't have the time for either.

ID: hmsbi4l

That's why I prefer to play a multiplayer co-op with a friend.

ID: hmsqyz3

I don't mind some coop games but most of the time my friends and I are too busy to get on a game together.

ID: hms2nvo

Same here, I actually get so into it if I play multiplayer my heart races and I start to feel physically drained while just sitting there playing a game. Then the yelling starts….and things break…..

I like MMOs, but I absolutely do NOT play competitive multiplayer.

7 : Anonymous2021/12/01 10:25 ID: hms4fkh

Used to then I had children. Children don't understand the concept of not having a pause button

ID: hmssvh7

I just can’t commit to a long multiplayer game. Don’t want to be a leaver.

8 : Anonymous2021/12/01 08:17 ID: hmrvhod

I almost never do because i play games to escape people.

I love single player games like horizon: zero dawn, breath of the wild, or hollow knight. I wish there were many more like that.

ID: hmsl55r

If I had a PS I’d definitely dive headlong into HZD. That game looks amazing. BotW was killer as well!

ID: hmsmk4u

Horizon zero dawn is available on PC now.

My 3 favourite games played in the past 3 years... Are you me?

9 : Anonymous2021/12/01 08:41 ID: hmrx9ag

I avoid multiplayer as much as I can. I've never had any good experience in public lobbies and I don't have any gamer friends to play with either. So yeah, its the single player for me.

Also, I like to be alone with my thoughts and the game whenever I'm gaming. I'm surrounded by people the rest of the time in my day that these fleeting moments of solitude revitalize me.

10 : Anonymous2021/12/01 07:37 ID: hmrsd2s

I tend to like single-player stories better, and unless I know the people I'm playing with, and the game is either cooperative, or non-combative at all, I'm not really interested in getting shithoused by a shit talking 12 year old.

Or honestly, I'm just too kind of solitary person. I generally don't want an audience evaluating what it is I'm doing when i'm just enjoying myself playing games.

11 : Anonymous2021/12/01 07:11 ID: hmrqbcs

I don't really have the time for dealing with other people while playing games. I play games for myself, so my main preference is playing, story and character-driven games and some grand strategy games. In the later I only play single-player campaigns.

The only "multiplayer" I sometimes play is Warframe, but you don't actually have to deal too much with other players.

I play games how I read books, just by myself. 😀

I suck and I have neither the time nor the inclination to «git gud»

ID: hmt95c8

Same. I don't bring much to a group and don't want to drag other people down to my level.

13 : Anonymous2021/12/01 11:48 ID: hmsaszn

Chilling with Kingdom Come Deliverance and I'm having a better experience playing it then when I play any sort of multiplayer.. people tend to suck the fun out of everything.

14 : Anonymous2021/12/01 12:22 ID: hmsdpb7

I almost never play multiplayer anymore. My reasons are simple. I don’t have the time needed to give a game to get good enough to enjoy playing online against others.

Why would I want to spend my limited amount of gaming time getting absolutely destroyed in a game and getting frustrated? So instead I play single player games where I can play at my own pace and just enjoy the gaming.

15 : Anonymous2021/12/01 07:18 ID: hmrqv6r

Basically, competition is the thief of joy and people suck.

16 : Anonymous2021/12/01 14:38 ID: hmssz75

I stopped really playing competitive multi-player.

I'm a sore ass loser and get frustrated. So I just avoid it so I can enjoy my gaming time.

17 : Anonymous2021/12/01 10:50 ID: hms6ant

Never have, never will. I enjoy playing games my own way.

18 : Anonymous2021/12/01 11:35 ID: hms9ozh

I can play co op but never pvp or anything else twitchy. I find virtually all multiplayer shooters to be repetative to the point of boredom. Can't see the point playing rounds shooting others only to repeat it again. Waste of time imo.

19 : Anonymous2021/12/01 06:36 ID: hmrn91o

I never do. I don't like the shit talking.

20 : Anonymous2021/12/01 06:48 ID: hmrod53

Someone there will always be better than me. Then I will try to become better than him. It will become frustrating, I will not enjoy that game and quit.

21 : Anonymous2021/12/01 12:28 ID: hmse8yx

Other people can't be set to easy mode.

22 : Anonymous2021/12/01 15:29 ID: hmt03kz

I play games for similar reasons that people read books, to get lost in worlds and stories.

23 : Anonymous2021/12/01 08:07 ID: hmrur1z

Single player games: what will happen? Where is the story going? How is it going to affect these different characters? How cinematic is the experience?

Multiplayer Games: which team of near-identical people with guns will smash harder against the other team this round, to be repeated infinitesimally round after round?

ID: hms1jfd

I hate to be that guy… but infinitesimal means small or a value approaching zero.

ID: hms26aa

Actually thank you for being that guy, not in a braggy way but my hold on English is quite excellent, and I appreciate whenever I learn something new.

Cheaters and super sweaty tryhards is what made me quit online gaming.

25 : Anonymous2021/12/01 11:22 ID: hms8pbn

Yea I'm 99.99% single player. Even mmo's I go solo.

26 : Anonymous2021/12/01 07:45 ID: hmrt0sr

Because it's hard to find a good one

And in the other cases... Lack of friends.

27 : Anonymous2021/12/01 08:42 ID: hmrxbmb

I’ll play multiplayer occasionally but eventually I always find it boring, repetitive with no sense of progression other than skill and competitive play doesn’t interest me

28 : Anonymous2021/12/01 11:37 ID: hms9vxb

Hi. I play games to escape the world, in other words people.

I also just have a penchant for narrative driven games that are rarely multiplayer. Though I do play some MP titles from time to time.

Yes and I want to smack the idiot who made Fallout 76!!
