What's your favourite kind of multiplayer and why?
For me it's definitely split-screen competitive multiplayer. I just love the feeling of beating a friend sitting on a couch next to me. However, if I have a person whom I can regularly play games with I definitely prefer a good split-screen campaign.
What are your thoughts?
It depends on the game but rarely do I find myself having a more fun time than when Im playing competitively (or cooperatively) against a bunch of my friends in the same room. Because it's a lot more social I don't get as pissed off as if I was playing competitively online in games like COD.
Tend to prefer co-op. I only like multiplayer games that require some kind of strategy though. If it's something like COD where it's just mindless kill the other guy before he kills you stuff then I don't like to play it because it gets boring almost instantly for me. I like games that require some kind of strategy or tactics to win.
I vote A and B. Mainly because I play support characters in competitive games. I'll just sit there healing a guy shooting dudes in a multiplayer match and be happy. Which I guess is co-op and competitive. But I guess by definition, I have to go with competitive.
I"m not twelve years old, so I don't sit around with other grown men on the couch all day/night playing videogames (and dividing a huge screen into two small screens). Then again, I don't really know anyone my age in social or professional circles are are gamers and play on multiple platforms and have a wide taste in games and is likely to want to play the same game as me on the same platform as me and be available at the same time to co-op it. So I don't.
For example, I do know one person who is into Star Craft, but I haven't been able to get together with them online for any Star Craft play since SC2 came out, at all. Actually, the last time we were able to play any games together was the original Star Craft, in 2000, a couple years after we started at our first job together.
