I don't like the fact that over half the achievements for some games are multiplayer achievements. Online/multiplayer achievements shouldn't even be coupled with single player achievements.
I redeemed a one month gold membership card the other night and am just annoyed with online play. Now we have to hear other players blab on and on and talk trash. And online multiplayer (especially with FPS's) is basically the same no matter what game you're playing, and it's just chaos. There is little "skill" involved. It's just knowing the levels and where the weapons are.
I guess I'm showing my age when I reveal my opposition towards the direction of MMO's, online play/multiplayer, and casual gaming and controller-free gaming.
I think developers are spending too much time appeasing the online multiplayer crowd, so much so that the single player content (the real meat of a game) suffers. I mean, where's all the DLC for single-player additions to a game, rather than just more multiplayer maps?
