...if that's your thing. Multiplayer (let's just start calling it Co-Op since that's really what it is
) in ME gives me absolutely nothing to work toward. Wheee, an ever-so-slightly better gun than I had before. Yaaay, my umpteenth health pack. Joy of joys! It's a new character to use against
obliterate the same spastically moronic AI drones that keep doing the same spastically moronic tactics over and over and over again. Yawn.
True MP games like BF, L4D, etc, have actual humans that are capable
of learning and evolving, thus at least being a slight threat at maybe presenting a challenge. (CoD doesn't count, since little kids simply set up camp and never adapt.
In a FPS campaign, I'm working toward knowing and playing out the story. Now, some of the stories aren't that great (CoD, BF3, Homefront, Crysis, etc.) but others are actually fun (BadCo. 1 and 2, L4D 1 and 2, Bioshock 2, etc.) and they play out well. It's FAR more fun for me to have a long series of events lead up to a well-earned whole batch of cookies than to get a puny, insignificant crumb every 10 minutes.
It's all a matter of personal choice. It's why some revel in the glory that is found in the open-worldness of the; Oblivions, Skyrims, Fallouts, Red Deads, and countless others while some prefer to drop in something they can walk away from moments later. To each their own.
