Like the title suggests. Have you noticed that the games released recently are all one player games?

There's co-op but its being taken over online multiplayer. Not like I'm complaining or anything is just that I kinda miss the simpler times you know.

What do you guys think?

Actually I`m more wondering why do all the games are for 10000 players now. Really, I can see only WOW, Gui-tah hero and other games for thousands of players.

yeah well thats good aint it?....i mean if you brought 3 friends over to play the halo 3 campaign on the one xbox 360 because they havent seen the new halo campaign before...you cant, youll just end up with 1 guy missing a go while the other guy goes through the missions and when they do switch over, the guy who has been waiting for his go has no idea what or where he is at in the story line, therefore spending a few minutes catching up to what his/her mission is in a particular level, hence making things a lot complicated for players to actually enjoy the story line...besides have the seen the latest games?!...gears of war, halo, 2, 3 they all have the dammed 2 coop story line campaign...dam them...and if anything you should rename this thread "the death of four player games" because in this current trend in particular there has been a very large amount of 2 player coop campaign games...but i also guess you right, the simpler times were simpler...back then you only had the d pad, a, b and the on/off button nowadays its the c buttons, its the z93 button, its the r463821 button, its the left, left, bottom, coagulated, analog stick to the right of the earths gravitational pull that controls the technical support of the second top right jumping booster for 13 gears for 26 seconds...yes how simple those days were...

Meh I've started to dislike splitscreen modes since it makes it harder to see what you are doing.

The only games that truely work with local multiplayer are Fighters, 2d shooters and 2d beat em ups imo.

The others you're just thinking "I wish I could separate from the group and go over there for a minute" or "I wish I could see what's going on properly"

A lot of co-op games are changing to co-op over the internet you mean?
Yes?
But a lot more games are co-op than they used to be.

Some xbox games that are co-op locally.
Call of duty 5
Gears of war
Lego Star Wars
Lips
Halo 3
Beautiful Katamari
Castle Crashers

Yeah but I still prefer having my own screen lol. My bro and I both have 360s and we basically play over Live when we're just like 20 feet away lol. He has his own screen to worry about and we talk via headset. While the whole co-op/split screen isnt doing that well, not a whole lot of people are doing it. Its nice to have a couple of friends over and have a splitscreen co-op round but a lot of people nowdays have the luxury to sit on their own couch on their own tv and play with friends over the net rather then having them come over.

Some games I do wonder why they don't have split screen multiplayer. Burnout Paradise for one, as a racing game I would expect it to have split screen but I was disappointed when I couldnt do it.
