Do you realize some people don't WANT a multi-player-exclusive game? Some people (Myself included) prefer a Single Player Campaign.
Hell, that's the only reason I've bought any game ever. Multi-player is only to sweeten the deal.
And you are aware that the opposite opinion exists, yes? Otherwise, how can you account for the success of Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft, EVE and Battlefield? What about Halo 2, which remained the most popular Xbox game until the release of Gears of War (a game developed by a company known for their multiplayer)? What about the success of eSports, CAL/CPL or Major League Gaming?
I like to play against my friends, and in the case of Counter-Strike play at a semi-pro level against good players. Story doesn't botehr me as much beacuse the gamers I fraternize with, we each have our own warstories. Whether it's an ace against a pro team in CS, wrecking a chopper carrying seven people with an escape pod in 2142 or storming the Carentan House of House Guns (tm UL Games Society 2003), there's always something to tell.
Congratulations, you missed the entire point of my post.
I said some people, I never said all people. If you were to make a game that is multi-player only, you'd be alienating a load of people, like myself.
And I play Exteel, which happens to be mutli-player only. Do I think it could do with a single player campaign? Why, yes, I do, but they never asked for my opinion, did they?
EDIT: And I bought Halo 2 specifically for the story.
