[Kotaku] Valve ‘Probably’ Done With Single-Player Games - Page 16

Well, hopefully not as they aren't fun alone.
More like Halo: Reach. You can play the campaign solo, with friend, or online. There's no solo-only campaign, like Call Of Duty games.

Well it probably will be since (I can only assume) Episode 3 has been in development and they're finally finishing up on it. The decision now would mean for any games they develop in the future.

That sucks. Not sure what vale is thinking, personally I am miffed about the stupid co-op for Portal2. The solo should have been longer with no stupid co-op.

If what they can deliver can be as successful and innovative to the industry as Counter Strike: Source, and Team Fortress 2, i will be fine with it. Valve's latest additions seem to be less then perfect, Left for dead and the portals were great, but they didn't have that much of a impact in the community, as well as fun factor.

Give us a game that innovates, with all of valves trademark PC features (dedicated servers,console, mods all that stuff).

I'd have no reason to but a Valve game anymore...

I mean unless they are saying you can play solo or multi.

i dont get how singleplayer is better than multiplayer... seriously how in the hell is singleplayer more fun, its so god dam boring, for any game in that matter. Youre playing by yourself, doesnt it get boring??? Every game i play in singleplayer i end up playing for like 5 minutes tops, and its so boring.

I really think that's what they mean. Gabe didn't say they were done with solo-campaigns. Gabe said they're probably done with isolated solo campaigns. In other words, no single player ONLY campaigns. They will have the option to play it alone or with a friend and have the same storyline for both. Halo: Reach being a good example of this.

I think everyone is reading this the wrong way.

Your opinion is your opinion. A poor one at that. A lot of people enjoy single player and often buy games for single player campaigns (It's really all pirates can play as well, and we all know how big pirating is). I enjoy doing both.

Because 5 minutes of playing is ample to form an opinion worth sharing.

I see the reason why he hates singleplayer. He gets bored in 5 minutes.

And, don't get too loyal about not buying Valve games. If Valve make some amazing game, and your friends are bugging you to buy it, of course your going to break it.

Anyway, portal 2 was amazing, but not worth full RRP price.

There are a lot of players who prefer single player experiences. I almost never play multiplayer games even though I own several, in fact I have only played Left 4 Dead with real people two times, the rest with computer controlled team mates.

I wouldn't get too upset about this as the demand means we'll continue to see single player experiences from somebody.

You guys do know Valve means that there just won't be a game without multiplayer right? Imagine if HL2: DM came bundled with HL2. That's all.
