Read Play Blog is back for another month of gaming! This month’s question is:
Do you prefer single or multiplayer games?
I love both single and multiplayer games, so I don’t really have a clear preference. Multiplayer games are so fun for socialising with your friends over a game at home. I love the social aspect of Left 4 Dead, Borderlands 2, and Starcraft 2, mostly games that are purely focused on the multiplayer aspect and doing it well. Single Player games with multiplayer tagged on aren’t usually worth it, but then again I haven’t explored that a lot.
I find it stressful sometimes in multiplayer games to go along with what your friends are doing though, and trying to skill up as much as others, so when I want to relax and enjoy the story, I usually prefer single player. They seem to be more achievement based as well, I don’t have a lot of time to play single player games though, so I prefer episodic ones that I can play in short bursts without losing the plot of the story, like Telltale Games.
Currently Playing & Recommendation: Animal Crossing: New Leaf
I’m recommending a game that is great for both single player and playing with friends. I am so addicted to this game at the moment!
You create a town filled with cute animals as your neighbours, and it’s actually quite relaxing because you can do whatever you want with it. You can make friends with the neighbours, visit other towns, go fishing and shopping, and renovate your house. It also suits me because I don’t have a lot of time to play games, so I can hop on a little bit everyday and still have fun.
The only downside is that it runs on real time, so sometimes I miss out on the shop opening times or on certain events because I’m busy that night. If you play AC too, let me know your friend codes!
I also recently discovered StreetPass (you’d think I’d be new to this whole DS thing but I’ve had one for a year lol), where other people you pass who also have StreetPass activated will be notified of your little Mii character. It’s such a neat concept and always interesting to see who’s out there! I feel like us Nintendo people are in some sort of underground club lol.
Next month’s question: Do you prefer multiplayer or singleplayer games? Recommend your favourite! – post your answer, recommendation & currently playing on the 16th or anytime during the month and link up!
