Single player games or games where only you and a friend can play like a co-op campaign.

Multiplayer isn't bad but only if your playing with friends, I find it gets dull playing by yourself all the time.

Both for me. Pretty much 50/50 but i probably lean a little towards multi player.
I used to be a console player and mostly play JRPG's. Now i rarely play either. But i do play single player games on my PC. I love games like Dragon age and Fallout and The witcher. They're all games that i get really addicted to and imermersed in.
I most def get my moneys worth out of them and will spend like 200 hours plus on them.
Which is good because iam not one to replay games.

I mostly play FPS games and i do not play them single player almost ever. I played a few COD games but only played one of them SP and I mostly play Battlefield and back in the day they were multi player only. Since they have had a campaign mode i can honestly say that i never played them even once.
Well, i did do some of it on BF4 but co op not SP.

Whilst i do still love SP games, i love a good story and i like to escape reality and people, i mostly play MP games and i think that once you get used to doing that that sometimes single player games just do not do it for you.
Like sometimes i will be playing a SP game and enjoying it but i'll have battlefield on the back of my mind and be getting cravings to play it and sometimes shut the game off and switch over to it.

Alot of good SP games have been left not completed or i have never played due to spending so much time on MP games over the years. Pretty sure if you added up BF2, BC2, BF3, BF4, BF1 beta, SOF2, COD4, COD MW2, COD BO and insurgency you'd be looking at easiley over 3000 hours.

But i still love RPG's and i have barely played an MMORPG ever. Whilst i play FPS games 99.99% on line only, RPG's i still prefer 99.99% SP.

RTS games i like to play both SP and MP. Like Grey goo i only ever played SP.

And sometimes i'll play SP games like visual novels or hunie pop or something like that.

I did used to love playing fighting games n sports games n stuff back in the old days when you'd actually sit in the same room as other people and have a control pad each

And i used to love LAN parties. But i lalso loved being alone playing RPG's so much.

short answer BOTH!

EDIT: oh and multi player, for me is 1000,000 times more fun if you're playing with real life friends or on line/gaming clan friends that you have been gaming with for a while/know them well.
Not only is it great for team work, its also great for having lots of laughs and at times showing off and competing.

I prefer single player. Only multiplayer games I play are destiny, battlefield and OW on occasion

I do love SP, but its rare for me to be taken by it now a days.



MP is so simple and you get complex situations by other players (depending on the systems the game have and such)

I mostly play single player games. Path of Exile and Tera are the only multiplayer games I still play. I don't dislike multi-player I am just not interested in a lot of the games that have multi-player.

I get some enjoyment out of both but I definitely lean more heavily to the single player side. I get into a fairly competitive mindset when I'm playing multiplayer so if I'm not progressing or at least competing I'm not really enjoying the experience, and yet I also just don't have the desire to put hours and hours into a game so I can be at that level these days. I also don't have any issue at all about game length like some do as long as the price is reasonably relative. I don't need or want every game I buy to provide me with tens or hundreds of hours of entertainment.

I mostly play single player games, but I do love me some local co-op games, and fighting games as well. I was never a huge fan of online multiplayer but it's really fun to play once in a while.

Having both is fantastic, although single player seems to be cut more and more often. Although Ninja Gaiden isn't the same anymore, Ninja Gaiden Sigma is by far one of the most enjoyable pure single player games I've played in "modern" games. Minor online, like Dragon's Dogma, is high up there, too (although that's different now with DD: Online.)

Online only games are good, too, but the lack of single player for storytelling hurts the game the same way a game without online would hurt in this age.

For me, a strong single player game would outdo an online only game any day. Now, a game with mulitplayer (like 2 ppl irl), is different. I don't buy many of those (aside from fighting games) because I don't have many friends who're into games as I am.

If I've to choose one, I prefer single player over online multiplayer. But, I'll give Titanfall 2 an shot next month. Nowadays, playing online multiplayer isn't as fun for variety of reasons (too many kids, folks treat online multiplayer mode way too seriously, developers/publishers turning their games into Call Of Duty clone, being shoehorned for the sake of making money & single player side of the game suffers, DLC & etc). Having an good, strong single player games do go an long way (Mass Effect, Infamous, Sleeping Dogs for example).

I definitely prefer multiplayer games, as long as I'm playing with friends. I tend to avoid any competitive multiplayer games though, and just stick to playing co-op. Competitive multiplayer is just too stressful for me, as I tend to play games to relax. If it was a choice between single player and competitive multiplayer, then I definitely prefer single player games.

Single player. Seriously, way too many games have multi-player and just because to extend it's life. Something like, say, Max Payne 3.

On the other hand, i do enjoy multi-player. It just depends on the game.
