    Default MMO's ruined my single player gaming?

    After playing many MMO's for all these years it really seems to have taken a toll on my single player gaming. I find it boring/not worth my while to play most single player games and I seem to think that there isn't much point. Can anyone else relate? It really sucks that I just don't find many single player games fun anymore. It would seem to me the whole carrot on a stick aspect of mmo's along with the social bits are the main cause, there is not the same gain in a single player game, everyone can get the same things and follows mostly the same path, there is nothing special about it. The characters are nice, but they are not real.

    Yep, I have the same problem; well, I wouldn't call it a "problem" ...

    I just can't get into singleplayer anymore, unless they are turned based games or rpgs like skyrim, fallout; sandbox ingeneral, where I have a lot of freedom to do what I want.

    Games like Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, etc....are utterly boring to me. The cut scenes kill me, really.

    I just love the thrill of playing with and against other people so much, and being able to do as I please ...

    Lol and I thought I was the only one. Same here, I didn't even bother checking out those anticipated single-player games on consoles or PC. Though I would still play the old RPG games like FF7-10. But that's about it. Or maybe, we're just getting old.

    i beated Chrono trigger 300 times, always brings tears to my eyes. anyways i hate the community, especially the english community! they ruin my experiance in mmorpgs and kills the mood in playing. You only live once, so lets evade the pvp content. They're so afraid as if they lose all their equips when you die like diablo 2 or something..

    Yeah, ever since I got into MMO's I just couldn't get into single players games anymore at all.....
    It's basically wasted money for me..

    Journey is worthwhile... And any non-subscription retail game at least 4 years old which has gone F2P tends to be good because only the fans still play (SWG emu, FreeAllegiance, etc).

    Since I recently started enjoying games with PvP it's somewhat difficult finding that excitement in single player games.

    So multiplayer it is!

    It hasn't really ruined it for me, but the lack of single-player RPGs is what is annoying me.

    Only the good old and original and only true rpg genre can hold me into a singleplayer game (skyrim, ff7 etc)
    Shooter games are dead to me i only liked good only cod 2 or older and some other older war games. The new ones just feel like im killing zombies all time

    There's been some decent ones among the consoles to come out between this year and last and some still to come. I've been playing single player games more than MMO's lately.

    Depended on the game for me. I am sort of 'forced' to always put the settings on the hardest mode, because I can't get into it otherwise.

    This is why I keep telling ya'll not to stick to only PC for your gaming needs *shrug*.

    The majority of the really good single player RPG's get spread to the consoles, including the handhelds but the PS3 gets a lot of good ones. The Wii has Xenoblade, which is probably the best one to come out in a long while though.

    actually for me single player games becoming interesting again.

    i am quite keen to try out Nox the singleplayer rpg (installed already, I need to get Virtual PC running to run it). I also am thinking about playing a more Diablo style single player game again (probably D2 on a different character to my last one). I also am thinking of trying out Age of Mythology, possibly if there is a mod somewhere.

    Single player games with mods are now REALLY fun. Titan Quest has some AMAZING mods for single player and I will probably try them soon. Also some single player beat mania style games are very fun.

    My multiplayer addiction started with neverwinter nights - it is so super fun to run around and realise those characters running around are real players and not npcs. But.. a really good in depth rpger rts singleplayer is still fun for me :-

    Fun singleplayer games
    Majesty
    Dungeon keeper
    Fate by wildtangent
    Warlords Battlecry
    Supreme Commander (try with the improved AI mods, scary AIs)
    Sins of a Solar Empire (still very epic, mods coming now already)
    etc
    (some of these need mods really)
