    Title says it. I rarely buy games for single player. I'm always online.

    really depends upon the type of game, though I enjoy well developed online features.

    Single player. Gameplay aside, I'm a huge fan of a good story. Games, books, films. Multiplayer stories just seem non-existent.

    Single player mostly. I just find I'd rather be doing something else than playing video games when I'm with a group of friends. Unless it's something interactive like Guitar Hero, haven't tried a Wii yet but I'm sure I'd dig that.

    I buy sports games for both multi and single

    Everything else pretty much is for multi. You actually get a challenge when you play multiplayer.

    Gears of War is actually of the first games I actually enjoy playing single player.

    I used to buy lots of single player games way back, but these days i find the AI in the types of games i like to play to be far to predictable, gets boring very quickly :rolleyes:

    I think the only recent single player game i played through was HalfLife 2, and of course epesode1, but i mainly bought HL2 for the multiplayer mods and other content

    mostly for single player, expect for the "party" type games (mario party, ssb), where i may put mutli player as more of a priority.

    i usually play games single player though.

    Well, usually *I* buy single player games and my friends buy the multiplayer ones that we play. :)

    GeOW is miserable for me single player...can't rely on computer intelligence and love having a friend to coordinate with. Some games I buy specifically for gameplay for me (obviously DS titles, etc). Some games I buy specifically because of coop with friends...like Fifa, Winning 11, etc. Rainbow 6 Vegas I bought just for live and to play with some friends back in the states...so it really just boils down to the game.

    That said sometimes the coop can be an amazing value I wouldn't have thought of at first. Take GeOW...thought I'd be playing that by myself...turns out it's great for two. I love the added coop fun on Kameo..wouldn't have thought it'd be that way. Also Crackdown is a blast with coop, but wish it allowed two player in the house as well....

    I buy games for both. Some games I know I am going to love the multiplayer, and will still play through the single player once in a while. Other games I buy for single player only. Usually games that are one player only.
