Default More Online Games?

Looking at E3 this year see a lot more games that are going to be multiplayer online games e.g Tom Clancy's The Division. I liked this alot and was going too preorder but saw that I needed to play online and could not play in single player mode. Don't get wrong I don't mind online games however I just think that you should be able to play on your own.

What do guys think?

Games are changing, it's no different than when PS3s and 360s were in ascendancy that Split Screen on many games got dropped in favour of Online Multilayer.

I believe online gaming is the way of the future in the sense that it offers more than a typical console, PC game would. Take for instance the growing trend of CO-OP Multiplayer that has been growing since the release of large "sandbox" style games. People want to play with freinds, and play with them in massive games like Skyrim where the only limit is the size and scope of the game. Future games like Tom Clancy's: Division, Metal Gear Solid V, Elder Scrolls Online, and even BF4 to an extent will define the future of gaming.

Also there is the fact of the Cloud, which offers more computing power for consoles than ever before. One problem with massive games is that they only fit on modern PC's, and generally are to powerful for console gaming. However people cannot afford those massively strong Desktops to play them, or hate the lag and loss of connection with PC gaming. With the next Gen consoles, and Dedicated Xbox One servers, I think you will see the rise of "Online Sandbox" games.
