What about people on WP. Would you play mmos with them and ignore the general mmo population?

Me? No. I wouldn't. Not only would it be hard to ignore everyone else playing, but I'm not friends with anyone on this site. That's not to say I don't like anyone, but my definition of friend means someone I hang out with on a regular basis. Someone I know a lot about, etc. Besides, I like to play games at my own pace and pay attention to the story. MMOs typically don't have stories that draw me in so I have no interest in playing them.

I hate Multiplayer because I don't like having people scream at me if I make a mistake. I am only human :(

p.u.g stands for "pick up group". Therefore, working with a group that you've just "picked up" = pugging.

I enjoy MP gaming all the time. Mostly with FPS PC games and usually I do everything I can to get to the top of the scores. Quite often I am in the top 5 in almost every FPS I play now. :) I have found a few great servers online that are free of bad people in CSS and the people there are quite fun to play with. I do occasionally make a mistake or two. Like the time I blew up 3 teamates when I died with a frag in my hand. :lol: They got mad, but not to mad. For the most part I just shoot people and don't talk to many players unless I have known them for awhile.

The people on BF2 aren't rude.

But I love MP gaming.

Still I wana know what the rest of you think about multiplayer gaming, online multiyplayer and all that other sh*t.


I also prefer singleplayer games (mostly older pc games like Fallout 1 and 2, Dungeon Keeper etc.) because of the "microphone shouting" you mentioned among other things. The few times I do play and enjoy multiplayer is usually with friends and very 'slow paced' games (Defcon, Chess master X, ..).

I have Xbox Live and a microphone but really the only people I talk to on XBL are my real friends from school. I don't feel all the way comfortable talking to someone who I can just hear their voice, and not see what they look like, how they act, etc

The game I play the most multiplayer on is Call Of Duty: World At War (about to go to 3rd Prestige :)) If I'm not playing it with friends, sometimes I'll just put my mic in and listen to what the other players are saying, if they have good voices it's kind of soothing for me...like listening to the radio. The other games I play, mostly sports and racing games, are single player.

I hate that too. It's actually one of the few things I dislike about L4D. I'm pretty good at it, but I suck at being the tank in versus mode. So every time I get killed as the tank, things like "lol noob tank" or "O... M... G... WTF WAS THAT?!?" pop up randomly and makes me want to quit. :(

I second the opinion of the tin foil devil horned cat. Fallout 1, 2, 3, and even Tactics are great games. Great single player experiences, for those times when you don't want to interact with anyone online and just want to chill.

I play Left 4 Dead on Xbox Live so I do talk to people when I feel like it, if not then I just listen and say the odd word like "Witch." etc. etc.

Peope in L4D tend to be nice and understanding. A fun thing to do online(only when I play halo 3 though) is annoy people. I can do an authentic vietnamese voice exaggeration because I have friends from Vietnam, I'm learning to speak the language, and I find viet prank calls on the interwebz. I can emulate it very well so I'll talk like that the whole time just to see the reactions of the people. I don't initially trash talk, but they do and call me racist asian names. I put on cambodian folk music on my laptop(i listen to it on a daily basis cuz i'm weird) and hold my headset mic up to it. It's hilarious! I also play Fallout 3 while talking with friends who are playing it. That is very fun to do and helpful because we exchange tips.

I love playing multiplayer games, a few years ago I was really quiet in real life but I talked a lot on Runescape (mmorpg if you don't know what it is) maybe because of the fact that I didn't have to talk to them face to face and could just log out in a bad situation, but now for some reason i've quietened down a lot on that and I never talk on Xbox Live and like some other people have said I sometimes get a bit nervous that people will start getting mad at me for something I did wrong.

When I was 14-15 I used to play counter-strike, mute everyone with a microphone and ignore people talking via text.

I just couldn't, and didn't want to talk to anyone there. I don't play CS anymore.

I don't really like single player games usually only play multilayer games. I get bored easily playing single player so i barely ever finish games. I have played MMOs before and enjoyed it. Also like to play FPS online like halo / COD . I play a lot less lately online by myself. Usually only with friends.
