Do All Games Require Multiplayer For Big Sales Numbers?

While I maintain that certain video games will never need multiplayer, it seems like most developers are treating the option as...well, not an option.

There are rumors that God of War III will feature multiplayer. Now, my first question was- How?! But after convincing myself that Sony Santa Monica would be able to deliver an interesting multiplayer experience, the next question arose and it's much more important- Why?

Maybe it has to do with sales. Maybe it's the fact that the biggest title in the world - Call of Duty - is only #1 because of multiplayer. Or maybe it's because the competition - EA's Battlefield series - also relies heavily on the multiplayer "option," as many shooters tend to do. If that's the case, maybe this is only a genre thing; it's why God of War would never actually need multiplayer. But would it sell better?

And another question- are Xbox 360 owners more into multiplayer gaming than PS3 owners, as one platform's exclusives (with the exception of Alan Wake) definitely seem to push more in the multiplatform direction? Think about it: Heavy Rain, God of War III, inFamous and inFamous 2, and even the Uncharted franchise is all about the single-player campaign. Naughty Dog can crow about the multiplayer all they want; we know the truth of the matter. Most gamers will be focused on the solo adventure.

Above all else, the question remains- "If a product doesn't contain a multiplayer feature, does that hurt its sales potential?" Obviously, there are always other determining factors (including whether or not the multiplayer is any good), but eventually, we may be hard-pressed to find a great game that remains great entirely on the strength of its single-player effort.

Titles like God of War and Infamous do not need it and I fear if the teams focused on it, that would divert time, attention and resources away from where it's most needed and important. The campaign. In this age of multiplayer I rarely find myself playing games online unless it's a few rounds of Killzone 3 or Uncharted 2. Seriously, I'm playing God of War Origin's right now and I am having more fun with this collection than I have had all year with multiplayer games.

Hear, hear, Jawknee! I'm not a big multiplayer gamer myself. I do enjoy playing Uncharted 2 online, but it is not the main reason why I bought Uncharted 2. I always look forward to a great single player campaign, like most of the games I grew up playing.

I'm not really sure. The two biggest games are Call Of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. I think if your a new up and coming IP then yes you do to have ridiculous sales. Franchises that have been established for a long time like GTA I don't think need it to achieve giant sales.

Given that fewer and fewer blockbuster titles are single player only, and the rising prevalence of multiplayer-oriented games, I'm afraid that's the route the industry is taking. Can't say I'm happy about it, but there it is.

Multiplayer is good for games that are made for such more. Games like shooters and RPGs in the same vein as White Knight Chronicles and Demon's Souls are just a few examples.

But I really think it shouldn't be shoehorned into a game just so it would sell. It pains me to see fantastic single player games struggle in sales just because they do not have a multiplayer component.

No but most rely on MP to generate sales instead of offering a complete package in terms of quality. I'd like to think hours I've invested in SP games like SOTC, Uncharted, and the Final Fantasy series have been far more rewarding to me not just as a gamer but as a person than some mindless shooter full of meh MP.

Having said that I can't wait for BF3!!!! ;)

Sorry World, didn't see your question.

It's okay but it's not the mind-blowing experience EA is hyping it up to be. Not on the PS3 at least. The graphics look only slightly better than BFBC2 and the game play seems to be the same with the exception of being able to go prone now. I wanted to get it but I think I'll wait until I can afford a PC rig. There is a lot of screen tearing too.

It's a beta, not a demo. I know the game is pretty close to release, but one of my biggest peeves is when people judge a game based on a beta. Beta's are for testing, demos are for judging.

To get a sense of how bad this is I'll just give you all a reminder, you get a trophy in Modern Warfare 3 for this: "Start the campaign on any difficulty."

I'm glad there are games that are really good at this for the fans of it but must it really be forced onto every other game that doesn't need it? How about some creativity that creates replayability in the SP instead? The best kinds of online are the subtle ones like Demon's Souls and Catherine.

Grand Theft Auto sold well because of the single player story mode. No one bought the game considers multiplayers. GTAIV online gameplay just seem absolutely clumsy.

I mean if a game can provided up to 50 hours of gameplay without boring the gamer. It doesn't need multiplayers at all.

The problem isn't whether or not a multiplayer is needed, it's if it's implemented properly and has tons of support.

Good examples: Uncharted 2 has a good multiplayer mode, and ND is still supporting it to this day with hotkey fixes, xp weekends, etc. I still play it (excited for the third game).

But perhaps the best example of adding a multiplayer to a game that didn't need one is AC Brotherhood. Not only was it one of the freshest online games in years, it also managed to tell a story (an epic win in my book). And with the additions made in Revelations, I would expect Ubisoft to have another hit, online or off. And what's even more amazing is how much they manage to innovate and expand within a year of development from title to title, unlike other popular franchises. I guess it basically depends on the resources available to developers.

And this article seems to focus more on competitive multiplayer; however, I would like to see more co-op modes in certain games. I mean, who wouldn't want a co-op mode in infamous 2, where you and a friend run around as conduits?

Bottom line, a game's sales shouldn't be determined on what modes of play it has, rather by the quality of the game. There are exceptions, of course, but the reason amazing single player games like Mass Effect or Elder Scrolls sell well is the amount of MEANINGFUL content these respective games have. Also, no one tells you how you want to play a game; whether alone or with friends and strangers, it's nice to know that games can give us these choices.

I think Ben is just saying, and I never tire of hearing SOMEone say it, is that a game will suffer simply by not having multiplayer an option regardless of how well it is implemented. People may look at the case and go "No multiplayer? Why buy it?" because that is the gaming landscape at this time.

Titles don't necessarily need multiplayer, but they will largely benefit from it in sales numbers: This has lately been indicated by the fps craze. There are a lot of great games that exclude multiplayer,such as infamous, but their corresponding sales values aren't the highest.

Yes some games need multiplayer. When i bought Uncharted 1 and i beat it i said to myself "man this game would kick some serious ass if it had multiplayer" i was also playing gears of war 1 at the time online (which i thought was weak) but could'nt stop thinking about the thought of Uncharted having online with its cover and platforming. Now ND realise Uncharted missing link and gave Uncharted 2 online look how it was critically acclaimed. Had lots to do with online (replay value) which is what helps sell games and avoid trade ins.. If uncharted 2 and 3 had no multiplayer regardless of the quality unfortunately it would not have big sales.

today for the youth & olders folks that are adapting or following gaming its about multiplayer with credibility & top ranking stats that show for them to brag. they under the belief that mulutiplayer is primarily & the campaign is the luxury.

i wont say campaigns will fade away but in due time or probably is now... multiplayer will be the prime reason folks choose a game.

Yeah its sad that people really only buy games for the mp. Why spend $60 on a game that you will beat and then never play it again? I love playing Infamous 1 and 2 over and over again. I mean right before Infamous 2 came out I had to replay Infamous again. I'm doing the same with Uncharted and Batman. MP is cool to play with friends or what not, but I love picking up a game that I haven't played it in awhile. I know I have friends that only play mp games, sports games or rpg's. They feel they want more out of a game and want high replay value. God of War does not need mp neither does Uncharted.

Yeah, I think there's definitely a place for multiplayer. It's an important feature to be available to gamers.

Just not every game should have it, and if it's a SP game that is amazing, it shouldn't be hurt because there is no multiplayer.

Multiplayer isn't bad... sometimes it's exceptionally good! But a necessity for all games? That isn't really fair, I don't think.

It's not a requirement but it contributes to the sales due to peer pressure. When your game has coop for instance, chances are good that some guy who want the game convince a buddy to get it too, to play coop. That happens all the time amongst my friends. There are quite a few games I *only* got cause of my friends.

Another factor is that it doesn't really matter *when* single player games are bought. It's only going to be me playing anyways, noone is waiting for me to get it too. The game is the same and the hardware is the same so the experience will be identical if a wait a month or two. Ergo: Price drop. Games are way too expensive today, that's why those insane price drops can take place.

Lastly, I've noticed several mediocre games gets a lot better played in coop. It simply raises the level of fun tremendously. So from that perspective one could say it's needed to give a bad game a better reputation!

that depends on what type of game it is and what you would call good sales figures.
if your talking 8M+ then yes no MP games going to get to that without MP!
but if your definition of good sales is say half that then no it does not.
more importantly you have to ask does the genre suit MP.
GOW as you said how would you bring MP to that?
some games lend themselves perfectly to MP, where others do quite the opposite.
racing games, shooters, arcade styled games are perfect for MP because there competitive and its easy to rank people.
action games, or even platformers for example its much harder.
how would you bring multiplayer into infamous or mario?

True LV. From a publications standpoint, it probably makes more sense to comment on the more popular exclusives just so more people feel involved. It makes sense to use UC, for example, since everyone knows how good it is, even if they haven't played it yet (blasphemy). But Demon Souls... even though I also liked it, many people will not just because of what it is. It does well, but it isn't everyone's cup of tea, exactly... so it wouldn't be the first exclusive to consider when addressing a large audience.

No multiplayer doesn't necessarily hurt a games sales potential. Every game could have MP but if the MP sucks then nobody will want to play it. It's almost a given to have MP in FPS', RPGs, and fighting games.

If you do a open world MP such as GTA it needs to be top notch. The GTA MP was ok but the set up was bad. Plus the lag didn't help the cause.

It's a stupid fad. That is, assuming it should be some sort of mandatory feature. I, for one, rarely use multi-player on a network. Perhaps offline gameplay, but this is something you usually don't get to enjoy anymore.

What happened to adventure & action games with co-op story based gameplay like Contra or Metal Slug? I don't care about gaming with some friendless kid who can absolutely destroy me at any given game. The human connection isn't there for me, so I might as well just play offline.

I'm disturbed by how viral our communication and entertainment is. People need more media to socialize, on a local level. Maybe all these adults will come out of their closets. Everyone is so aware of your every move through all this viral networking of text. That includes games. Sure I can use a microphone, but that just makes it creepier to me.

I miss having a room full of buddies, taking shots and rummaging maps and tipping each other off with tricks and secrets. Now, I stare at a computer screen to subsitute it. It's like our artificial sweetener.

Tell me you wouldn't enjoy doing God of War 3 with another buddy, offline?? That would be sweet!

I think it depends on the game. People like multiplayer because they like the social aspect of gaming- they want to play with their friends. Its definately catered toward the more casual gamer, as its easy to pick up, hop in a match online, and play.

I agree Jimmy. Also, the younger players I know have no patience for SP games. They can play hours and hours of the same FPS MP games where they keep dying over and over again. But have them die a few times in a SP game and they give up stating it is too difficult. If the SP game does not let them skip over the story (ie. cgi) sections they give up on the game as it bores them. I do not understand why, but then again I am an old school SP gamer.

I know one teenager who has had his PS3 for over a year now and has for the most part only played COD MW2 online. No way I could play one game for over a year! There are too many games I want to experience. As it is, I do not have the time and money to play all the games that I want.

Normally, I would say "no".
But, in the some cases, like for some FPSes, then "yes".

Case in point. I purchased Homefront solely for the multiplayer. I haven't even touched the single player on it yet. I've been on the multiplayer for the past 3 weeks straight.
Something about the multiplayer in that game is very cool and addictive. It's almost as good as MAG! (those of you who frowned when I said that probably didn't even give MAG a chance)
