... Well I understand and relate to what you're saying about vicarious living when it comes to most any manga or anime just not video games.

There's a reason its called, "Single-Player Campaign".

You just want to experience an exhilarating story of a video game. Or your Xbox Live/ PS+ subscription ran out. ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

Though I have an X box 360 I've never hooked it up to online services to play any games.

While i hate Microsoft i believe that you're doing it wrong. For example I've played like 20hours of single player mode but 60+hours in multiplayer. Multiplayer is where you go to find people that share the same interests as yourself. Most of the time i don't even say anything but the fact that there are people "around me" makes it more fun, even if sometimes you end up in a lobby with trashbaby people :3

I can't stand playing something like a single player rpg with other people around. If its a multiplayer game without any significant story then it doesn't bug me having other people around. I just find other people a big distraction in my enjoyment of the former.

I usually prefer to play games alone, but I don't mind company either.

Occasionally my siblings like to watch the games I play if it's story driven. My sister, for example, watched me play through all of Metal Gear Solid 4, Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. She also likes to watch games where you slaughter "aliens" ( she loves Gears of War )

It never mattered to me either way except if it was a game meant for two or more players. Fighters and racers are oft more fun with someone else, but alone is fine if need be.

I usually do, unless friends spam me to play multiplayer games.

I think I get what's he's saying.

This also goes to people that like to watch other people playing games on Youtube.
Like how people watch Pewdiepie play games.

The viewers don't have to exactly play the game. They just want to watch.

Just being part of an experience. In short, "that's my dawg."

I agree completely.. I can play games by myself but it gets boring. If Im playing with a friend however it just encourages me to play more and I end up having a better time.

I was raised with games and not the fun, family-friendly, social games like Mario and such, but rather classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate. Gaming has always been an extremely personal experience for me. I can play games around people like if I'm at my boyfriend's or vise versa and we're playing our own thing next to each other, or when we have SWTOR nights for double xp weekends. However, I get very immersed into games. I don't mind if there's a little bit going on but I really don't like playing around those who don't play, for whatever reason.

I guess the industry right now is thriving off casual players along with players who are fueled by social interaction to play. In that regard, I doubt you're alone in how you feel since a lot of new players are flooding in playing purely due to social factors.

Gaming is like pooping. If someone else is in the room then I'm really uncomfortable.
