So the more multiplayer games I play on console, the less fun I am having with video games. I remember the days when some friends an I would play some Halo 2 before school and always have a good time. Now that same experience is becoming rather hard to have again. With more Call of Duty games that come out, the more the shooter genre becomes tainted with trying to imitate it or being to bland for not being different. With the recent Halo game, it was fun for a while, then became to simple and only fun when you have friends playing with you, but most people have already moved on.
Even as I go to play a match or two of Battlefield 3 TDM, it isn't fun because the whole "Team" part isn't ever being used anymore, as no one tries to communicate with each other or everyone just runs around since they are playing alone and don't care. Of course to some people, this is a fun time, but kills the joy of the game to others.
Then with the whole thing with Xbox Live subscription in order to play the other half of your game is still bugging me as in order to play part of the game I already paid 60 bucks for, I still need special service in order to use it. This is why I believe the only way to have a decent time with multiplayer anymore is on PC or maybe even PS3 since it's free, or on the couch with a nintendo system. I just wish we had another Call of Duty 4 experience where multiplayer became different and more enjoyable. But until then, I think the multiplayer fun is dying out on console, and only being decent on PC with it having more ways to have a good team game going on and a much stronger community.
