What, no X-COM? No Final Fantasy Tactics? No Master of Magic? None of those games seemed to beg for multiplayer the way these ones did.
Yeah I was thinking something along these lines. Consider these:iseko said:Alien isolation multiplayer could be fun.
1-2-3-4 VS 1 kind of thing. A large/huge map where 4 players square off vs the alien. The 4 have to finish objectives throughout the map and the alien has to stop them.
Could also be 4 vs AI. With the multiplayer AI by default being: I am death incarnate.
Lol, I hadn't even considered this but yes, that would be great!Katherine Kerensky said:Personally, I'd quite enjoy a co-op campaign mode for Alien: Isolation. Would be a ton of fun to fuck over friends with noise makers and such.
I wouldn't mind too much with this is these had more discussion value in them. I get that's not really what the "8 X games that blankety-blanks" is about but this had been an article about how he wanted multiplayer to be in these games or how they'd failed in the past it'd at least be something. There's just no effort in going"Well this is a good single player game, it should have a multiplayer mode in it".Dr. McD said:Count me among people depressed at the complete stupidity. I mean seriously. Aside from Hitman all of these are so utterly fucking retarded.TrulyBritish said:Off topic though, is anyone else getting more and more depressed over the quality of the Escapists articles? Gods I miss Shamus Young and to be honest the only contributors I still care for here is Marter and EDA. *sigh*
Zelda would be an okay choice if not for the fact it ALREADY HAS MULTIPLE MULTIPLAYER GAMES, and Batman already tried multiplayer and unsurprisingly it sucked. Skyrim and Fallout 4 are shallow pieces of shit enough already, remove even the ability to mod them and you might as well just have a turd in the case.
I mainly come here for Yahtzee and Shamus Young (when I don't it's usually to see whatever joke threads are up).
No game deserves the sad fate of having its resources being misused into making yet another pointless and stupid multiplayer mode. Multiplayer isn't something that one should "deserve". It's not something good by default - hell, I'd argue it's not something good at all.8 Single-Player Games That Deserve Multi-Player
It did. It was....oh god it was awful. 2 people played a very clunky version of Batman and Robin, everyone else got to be two teams of mooks who controlled like amateur hour does gears of war by way of student project with some of the worst 3rd person controls I have ever encountered. Resident Evils tank controls are more fluid. Which, when you have ninja batman and robin flitting about you, does not go well.TrulyBritish said:(although didn't Arkham Origins have a multiplayer?)
It wasn't even Skyrim, that was the problem. It came off more as "generic MMORPG set in Mundus."Zontar said:
Yes, because what my Skyrim experience needed was people slaughtering vendors and teabagging them while I try to offload my bandit hideout loots.hermes said:I always thought games like Fallout and Skyrim would greatly benefit from some multiplayer. Not MMO style of multiplayer or deathmatch, but closer to Borderlands... just let your friends' characters join your world and roam around with you.
I did said "friends" though, not random people trying to troll. It is trying to make it closer to The Forest, not Dark Souls...Smithnikov said:Yes, because what my Skyrim experience needed was people slaughtering vendors and teabagging them while I try to offload my bandit hideout loots.hermes said:I always thought games like Fallout and Skyrim would greatly benefit from some multiplayer.
