One of the sentiments frequently expressed on the Bombcast that always surprises me, is that local multiplayer features such as split-screen and bot support are somehow outdated. To me, this is rather shocking. Making the argument that online play has made local multiplayer obsolete seems akin to arguing that social networking has made hanging out with friends obsolete. I'm not alone in this am I? How do the people of Giant Bomb feel about the state of local multiplayer in video games?
