Single-Player Slump

It's great to be able to jump online with just about everything from your toaster to the digital TV and, of course, games. Tons of games have amazing online action with huge worlds, thousands of people to meet and tons of things to keep you entertained. But what about single-player action?

If you have a console, you'll be paying an extra couple of bucks each month for the internet just to play a couple of games. If you're playing on your computer, the 'rents are gonna holler when the phone bill climbs through the roof as you spend hour after hour on the net. Suddenly that game is costing you cash every month - even if you aren't playing it!


This problem is that game companies started slacking off on making regular levels, it started with online shooter games. All people did was jump online and play against one another. Unless you're eager to jump online and compete against hardcore 'net heads, you're only using part of your game.


Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Games (MMORPG) like Everquest are the worst. They don't do ANYTHING unless you're online. Nothing, nada, zip, zilch and zero. Everyone's making internet-only games by the truckload and it's leaving people who want single player action with less to choose from. At this rate we may end up with nothing but Frogger!


The net is a blast but single-player games can still rock the house. Let's hope they don't die out.
