Re: DNF: Why This Geezer Plays Offline

Sweet article.

I'm also another 100% offline gamer. It's my own virtual world. The day offline gaming takes a backseat to online is the day I'll be sad and just go back to playing retro offline games

My favorite games, in general, are and will always be RPG's. So, as is tradition, I am more into the single player modes of sports games. Association mode in NBA2K, Dynasty in Madden, GM mode in NHL, and Franchise in The Show.... I always dream of owning, coaching, or playing with the best of the best. The point of gaming to me, TO ME, and only to me, is losing myself in a world that I normally could not go. It always has been for me. I do not need competition in gaming. For one, it is a virtual world in which you're skills have no bearing on reality. Two, gaming is a state of relaxation and harmony for my soul, inviting trash talking douchebags to ruin that harmony is not something I seek. I have enough competition and crap in everyday life. It's not easy being a musician, comedian, radio show host, whilst trying to avoid morons

Only game I've played online with any regularity has been the Modern Warfare series.

I somewhat agree with this article. When XBL came out for the first XBOX, I was on board, and also for PS2. For about a year or so, the online gaming experience was good, seemed like a lot of fair gamers tried it out. But after that first year, it went to hell.
Now to today, if I do any kind of online game in any genre vs. a random opponent(s), it's a 90 percent guarantee they will cheese or quit. that's my frustration with online gaming, to find a random player that plays fair is like winning the lotto. And if you do find one, and add them to your friends list, you'll never see them come back on to play that particular game.

Well, I want to have the best of both worlds and that's why I organize Online-Leagues for over a decade now. Playing against a friend who is sitting besides you is priceless, a league is more like your favourite TV series you can watch whenever you like.

As I get older, offline gaming has more and more appeal. +1 to the sentiments in this post.
