"If you think about what makes games so fantastic, it's the experiences you have with your friends,"
No, what makes games fantastic is that I can escape into a fantasy world for a while and not have to deal with the real world, which includes other humans.
I can't be the only one that hates multiplayer games with a passion. I think they are lazy money-grabs (no need to have story or any real content, just provide a few arena's and let the users provide the 'content'). They are cheap to make and can be milked almost indefinitely.
