What is online gaming to you?

Post by {FB}Uncybob on Sun 08 Jan 2012, 10:12 am

In another post we talked about gaming as a concept. I want to ask people what it is that constitutes the pinnacle of online gaming? bounce

I won't pre-empt the conversation, just think about what it is that gets you excited about playing games online. cheers

Well? Question

online allows co-op play, which can make a good game into an outstanding game - eg Arma 2

In single player - its 'ok'. Nice graphics, sound etc but thats about as far as it goes. Play it online with friends and it's a different game. So much depth, so many possibilities. We've racked up several thousand hours amongst our regular Arma 2 players and we're constantly finding new things that we didn't even realise the game could do.

For me its all about sharing the experience.
The most enjoyable time I've had with online gaming is when your on the same side working together, very few games have this ability. I really struggle holding my attention span with a game when it's predominantly based around individual pursuit. Its ok for awhile while its all new and exciting but its still the same s..t, - 'Spawn, Shoot, Die!'. A few months later its abandoned as I watch the next new fps come out. Its like we've forgotten what we really want in a game. Is it having fun with others or a claim to be the best gunslinger in town.

Arma2 for instance has a great work together style that I don't see in many other games where you can discus tactics and plan collaborative effort that brings out some great game intensity with a group on ts. The game pace can be dictated by just how intense the player wants to get by deciding how close he wants to get to the frontline. Strategy is constantly challenged with this game and brings so much more out of a game than the simple 'spawn shoot die' FPS game that I'm starting to tire from.

The forklift! That thing rocks. And the skid loader in battlefield 3 is good too. Some one should mod farming simulator into bf3.
Anyway for me, Its just a bit of fun for a few hours a week. But those two are the pinnacle of online gaming!
I dont have the hours to consider strategy or practice the k/d too much.
