I will fight ANYONE who tries to claim that singleplayer games are dead or dying. Anyone who claims that is either trolling or only out for themselves (money or ignorance). So yeah, EA is WRONG. But gameranx: you're wrong too. You're wrong that we all enjoy multiplayer online at times. I've NEVER played an online game: MANY people don't go there. The non-truths about singleplayer games needs to DIE.

Fallout (Full Series), Halo (LASO Only), Final Fantasy (Up to X-2), Gears Of War, God Of War, Tomb Raider, Elder Scrolls (Full Series), Dead Rising (Full Series). I still find myself dusting off the PS2 to play to Final Fantasy X and X-2 every now and again. Those were gorgeous games for their time with some if the best story content I've seen to this day.

I prefer playing single player games more than multiplayer online game. I enjoy playing monster Hunter world in co op multiplayer bcuz they don't have (micro transactions pay to win stuff )[and i hate this kind of thing in online gameplay] EA is wrong and nowadays EA and 2k have same thing pay to win and micro transaction which i hate most

What im miss in gaming is a good game like the witcher with good story. But also can coop with your mate. But what im see if they make online or coop the storyline is very weak. And you dont have the id you play in a world with his on story. But you play a online game a d go from missie to missie. The witcher make you dont feel you go from missie to missie. But give you the feeling you are in a fantasie world with his onw story. And you play the hero in this story. And you go to people for a real avondtuur. But when come a gamemaker with a game that have this bot? The online with your best mate or maby twoo mate? And that you can play in a real good story? That you have al your onw hero in the sory and they life in the world.

I personally have always enjoyed co-op {yes single player are good too.} However, what happened to the ability to hook up another controller and play co-op offline? As much as I enjoy my online friends, I may want to play with real life ones too. That in mind.. I did live in a area with no connection for awhile, kinda had to play nothing but single player for awhile.
Lost Memories (4 days ago)
Need For Speed came to mind. I played Hot Pursuit all the time with my brother as a kid. If memory serves me correctly, with the new ones you can either play single player or online. I wish co-op was both off and online offered.

Let's admit we all love to fight with & against computer controlled AI , I mean ya it's nice to play with friends online but if our AI companions & enemies take some intelligent things nothing is more satisfying ( for example enemies in games like farcry or FEAR)

i was going to say fallout, then i remembered when i FINALLY invaded windhelm in skyrim......then i remembered starfox, that was an amazing game to play, and yes, its single player, got a problem with that EA?

They can still do dlc in single player games, the batman Arkham games were awesome and had costumes you could buy too.

Online games with lootboxes simply just earn more revenue over time than Triple A single player games , Its just that As a money hungry business corporation obviously EA prefers this type of model , games like GOW and spiderman definitely sell big but after that their income drops significantly while games with lootboxes and micro transactions make people spend hundreds or thousands of dollars over time ... So yeah I'm not surprised why EA is trying to brainwash people by saying Single player is dead Single player triple A games are simply too risky They might tank in their opening week and may never have any profit while a tanked micro transaction pay to win game would atleast shell out a few more bucks from those who do play it

I much rather play a singleplayer game that gives me a good experience and gets me involved than play a multiplayer game with some kid bitching around talking bullshit, and I think that this is the thought of a great part of the gaming community, especially when it comes down to a more mature public that have way to many problems to worry about already and just wanna sit down and disconnect from the world for a lil while.

I like single player games. I'd rather have single player games really or at least offline.

I'm probably repeating several comments from below. But I soooooo miss buying great games and just sitting alone at home and having my own personal adventure. I don't need online AT ALL!!! I didn't buy a game system to be forced into combat full of foul mouth punk ass 10 yr olds. The constant online charges are driving out "one time buy", single player games. From a marketing p.o.v. it's a money maker. Plain and simple. Not everyone can afford good internet, good pc systems and consoles. They are abandoning a huge swath of players by going online/multi player. I barely play anything like I used to.

EA is probably the worst company in the digital media sphere. I no longer buy from them at all. Let your dollars going elsewhere send the message to EA.

Dragon Age is the Best SP. Hate the Inquisition Multiplayer, is nonsense. I like to play when I'm offline (like traveling), so makes no sense to me a multiplayer game.

david single (7 days ago)
Honestly my all time favorite single player game is still Skyrim, yea it has some dlc which was decent. But no monetisation, no co-op or multiplayer. And despite being a very old game, its still selling copies. I never understand why there always has to be one of the other, some people like single player. Some like multiplayer, some people like both. So just make games, and stop telling us what we want.....we are gamers, generally speaking we want it all.

I’m sure they would listen to actual players and not their Ai ones if people decided to just stop buying their games (not that it would be remotely possible that people would actually do that)

I just finished playing, God of War. And it's freaking Freya on the thumbnail. Ha! Liked her character quiet a bit. Felt a bit bad for her at the end. She was helpful throughout the campaign. Sad it had to end that way.

fast forward 4 months and the highest profit games are God of War and Spiderman that are exclusively single player... and despite being exclusives (which means 1/3 or less of the buyers can have them)

Companies dont want to make singleplayer games because microtransactions make a ton of maney because of noliver addicts who actually buy the shit.

Your right.....Your right......Your so right. I back every single thing you said in this video. I love all kinds of games, but im usually drawn more to the single player story driven games. All that set aside, your so right about how EA is trying to evolve the game industry. EA is basically trying to recreate the coin-op, just in our living rooms this time. Its the very very controversial debate about where our individual ownership of our products is going. Get prepared everyone because I think it may just get worse. Especially if we dont do anything to stop it.

You know what EA's desperation to make as much money as they can is killing their own game series they make a good game then kill it with 10 sequels so people stop buying then they blame it on the players NO EA just no you f***ed up your best games not us... electronic arts more like electronic arse

Any AC, The Last of Us, and a ton more
dmitc01 (8 days ago)
I actually stopped my ps+ sub because i only used online for sf5 which is still lacking imo. I've found that most of the games I want to play are single player games, FF15, GoW, TombRaider, MGS etc. And for fighters I just play those with my siblings and friend when I'm over by them. So yeah as far as I'm concerned EA is wrong.

Sean Biggs (9 days ago)
Something to think about, the market is currently glutted with multiplayer online games. The last really good single player game that I played was Mass Effect 3 and it left a bad taste in my mouth for games in general. SPG players are kinda not in the market anymore because no one is willing to produce a high quality single player game anymore. That leaves your data pool skewed towards MMOs.

Some of the best games are single player games, like the original battlefront games, halo ce and 2, and the gta games
Tommie Grumbles (9 days ago)
my single player game i keep returning to is The ledgend of the dragoon damn i love the hell out of it. The story line never gets old. if they did a remake of that boosted the graphics then i would definaly cough up some cash but if the touch the story that would suck.

Azrael Tsubuzaki (11 days ago)
I'm still salty they ruined the Dead Space series..1st and 2nd were great and ofcourse EA didnt let the writers do what they wanted so they had to make a rushed version that wasnt so great, sure Awakened was sorta a "fixed" ending...but you had to pay $10 for it on top of the $60 base game. Just EA ruining everything and not caring about their players as usual.
New_Beginnings (11 days ago)
Tbh if we’re talking Star war games, I want every Star Wars game that ever got canned, like Star Wars Battlefront 3, Star Wars Final assault, Star Wars 1313, the canned Darth maul game, and it would’ve been good if visceral game released there Star Wars game too... its so annoying that majority of Star Wars games that have gotten canned for a range of reason, are in fact the best games to ever hit Star Wars... Seriously don’t get what these CEOs are doing these days
KNIGHTFAL L (11 days ago)
its it because they want you to pay for things items or thing that give you an advantage in multiplayer and also they say screw hard work you can just pay for it
Chuck Clark (12 days ago)
I can see how multiplayer can have its appeal, but I’ve never been much of a fan. I do enjoy campaign co-op, though. I’ve finally found someone to play Dead Space 3 with, and I personally like it more than the single player experience. A LOT MORE.
Chuck Clark (12 days ago)
I’m playing MGS3 Subsistence on my PS2, right now. I LOVE this game!
Ummm just be honest EA, you just want to make a game that people will keep paying to get random crap. I guess God of War 4, Horizon Zero Dawn to name a few doesn’t exist in EA’s little mind.
Edward Wessels (12 days ago)
I enjoy playing single player games. I hardly ever go to GTA Online. But I do play the heck outta Rocket League and Overwatch and Team Fortress 2; because screw Fortnite!

Singleplayer games are better because there aren’t any stupid kids screeching at the top of their lungs when you kill them
nadav porat (13 days ago)
I think i'm not alone in saying - I buy consoles mostly for single player games. I am willing to pay a lot of money for games, it is by far my favorite way to consume content, I own an Xbox, a PS4 and a Switch, because they all have exclusive games that I love playing. But if games would stop delivering this artistic content I would just stop buying consoles and pay for one game a year for multiplayer on PC and that's it. I believe it is counterproductive for a gaming company to diss single player games, that is the only reason people still buy consoles and multiple games and not just a PC every decade and 1 game a year

I only play single player and co-op games.
Dani Sleight (13 days ago)
League is fun. Been playing it for 4 years now. But I still prefer the single-player (or co-op) story-driven games that encourage you to finish the story and then probably 100% complete it after doing a second run. It never gets old.
