Default Loner or Multiplayer?

In the past 2 years abouts ther has been a large amount of games sporting a very big emphasis on playing with a friend or friends. These include games like army of two, Kane & Lynch, left4dead and many more, most recent being resident Evil 5...

Now these games do have a single player mode and they are very good in both regards but My question to you is:

Do you prefer going it alone or having a friend help out in the game?

Personally I think having a real person help you out is great as a lot of games have shite AI and you get to have a lot more fun. You don't just save some robot, you save your friend!


what's your thoughts on it?

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

depends on the game, RE5 I prefer with a Human cus the AI for sheva is beyond retarded, except for the last level because you can't actually do it with 2 humans

i prefer with a friend as its so much more fun, AI will never drive a warthog off a cliff and bail at the last second to lol at you, AI wont kill you for the force hammer, annoying but funny when you ally snipers you for it.

that bieng said a quote from PC pwoerplay on CO-OP

it will be good and fun for a while but sooner or later your allies head will be in your cross hairs and you will be faced with the easiest moral question ever

a warning on a crossbow

'It is a serious piece of killing equipment and should not be purchased by children under the age of 9. '

if your bored my MSN is hells_fury@live.com, add me and ill talk with anyone :p

I have to say I like single player RPGs and open-world, but FPS and clearly made-for-co-op games are always better with a buddy.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

it depends on who your playing with:

noobs in left4dead will shoot you if you take a pipe bomb or pills while an AI would really give them to you!

but yes i would rather play online with my friends then by myself with a computer

It depends on the game.

For L4D, its a lot more fun to play with people. For COD5, its almost nessecary to have more than just you if you're playing Veteran.

amen to that, sheva is definatly retarded!!! but you can do the last level with a human player... it is alot harder but still possible!

but to answer the real question i definatly prefer playing with a friend!!!

I have a rendezvous with death, At some disputed barricade, it may be that he shall take my hand, and lead me into his dark land, and close my eyes and quench my breath, I have a rendezvous with death, and i to my pledged word am true, i shall not fail that rendezvous...

I like Multiplayer. Online or Offline Multiplayer, doesn't matter which. I'll play the first game the way through normally, and then I'd go onto Multiplayer. It's not often I'd get a Multiplayer capable game and then go on Single Player after completing it, unless there are harder still difficulties to do.

However, I'll still get a 1P only game. Games like Oblivion are bare fun.

all I know is me and my uncle tried 15 times, and couldn't figure out what to do, you mash buttons to move the rock, you mash buttons to stop sheva falling, you shoot wesker to stop him firing his phallic device at you.....and sheva falls, no matter what, no explanation as to what you must do, its not like either of us can actually go anywhere.
