One-Liner: Places to Go, People to Beat

What gets your multiplayer motivated?


ne of the biggest benefits of the modern console age are globe-spanning gaming services such as Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. Now gamers worldwide enjoy instant access to a nearly unlimited supply of potential partners or competitors with which to interact. But what type of interaction is it that most attracts you?

When you reach out to the gaming community are you looking for someone to share an adventure with? Are all your e-engagements centered around the urge to dominate and destroy in head-to-head competition?

What's your primary preference for your multiplayer match-ups?

My multiplayer title of choice right now is Modern Warfare 2, and my play preference is, actually, a little particular.

I surf lobbies of the no-respawn game-type Search and Destroy. Rarely will I remain with a group of players for long; typically, after a single match I'll leave a group and seek another one, even though I almost always risk joining a match that's nearly over.

It's the variety and unpredictability that appeals to me, I think.

In recent times, I find myself straying away from multiplayer games.

Playing Final Fantasy XI for nigh on 5 years made other online multiplayer experiences feel somewhat shallow and unfulfilling in comparison. No other MMO has matched up to the feeling of teamwork and coordinated strategy that gave sadly.

Local multiplayer is my choice though. Street Fighter has always been a favourite of mine, and the latest addition to the series re-ignited the flame, the only real competitive play I engage on these days!
