If the gaming God's had to abolish one and keep the other, who would you side with?
Choose single-player and you're never allowed to play multi-player again for as long as you live!!!
Choose multi-player and vice-versa...
Goodbye multiplayer. I'm just about done with multiplayer games as they are right now because I fucking hate matchmaking and the MMO/CoD system of play forever to have the best loot ruining balance and fairplay. If a game has all abilities/items available to all players right away and has a server browser then I will enjoy it way more than other multiplayer games but these games are few and far between.
Get rid of Single Player, keep Multiplayer. I've made a lot of good friends playing co-op (or PVP) games, and still play them a lot. And most game genres, even things like RPG's, would tend to benefit from a good co-op or pvp mode anyways. I'm looking forward to Bioshock Infinite, but given the option to play that co-op, of course I'd do it. Even things like Mass Effect have been proven to have potential for multiplayer, with things like the shared conversations in SWTOR (which I really enjoyed playing as a co-op RPG with a friend of mine).
If i really had to choose, I'd keep multiplayer. My fondest memories were playing games with friends in crowded arcades. Online multiplayer is the only way we can share in our hobby now that we've grown up and have jobs, family, and whatnot.
get rid of multiplayer. while i do enjoy playing with friends most of the time, there are just too many people out there that seem to want to ruin everyone else's fun. single player i don't have to deal with that, unless the game just sucks.
I'd keep single player. If video games were only multiplayer when I was first introduced, I wouldn't be playing video games and would be a very depressed sad individual today. Stories and storytelling are my main draw and an outlet for me to not feel weird about being an introvert.
No offense, but I always get the impression that people who are only into multiplayer would rather be able to beat you at something than have an interesting new experience, which is a type of person I can't stand.
(Also I've never owned a PC powerful enough for games so my experience hasn't been shaped by that community)
In the current state id get rid of MP, wow and it's armada of clones are decent but i don't play them, there are about 3 match making mp games that came out in the last year that don't have the pay to win model and than there are the co-ops like diablo, SR and borderlands which are actually good but few compared to all the SP games out there.
So yeah, if i have to chose right now SP... if i had to chose a few years ago it would have been a though choice.
I'd get rid of multiplayer, but having to choose would fuck my day up for sure.
I enjoy multiplayer gaming. It is both enjoyable and at the same time competing with others is a lot more exciting! I play Shaiya Phoenix online, it's a great RPG game! :)

Jesus Christ dude, we get it, you enjoy multiplayer gaming.
It terrifies me to think that multiplayer games might gain too much prominence one day. Valve's vow that all of their games will be multiplayer focused has me really worried.
I like multiplayer. But I like multiplayer with friends and friends are not always available. Pub games are generally a cesspool I avoid. Therefore, I regard singleplayer games as superior.
i wouldn't miss multiplayer.
when it went free on the ps3 i spent about two really fun hours designing a cool character for DC Universe Online, logged in, instantly surrounded by poorly conceived, badly named, hideous eyesores jumping around acting stupid. game broken.
shooter matchmaking has become an endless swirl of killing and dying with no sense of progression. even with co-op play, I'm a lot more lost in the game when I solo. i do have fond memories of wow dungeoning back in the day, and i would try a new game built along those lines, but finding other like-minded players when you need them has proven to be difficult at best.
