Minecraft is a great offline player game along with Don't starve look at my review on that if you like but Minecraft has no story really but Don't starve has one . For online games Minecraft can be online too. DC universe Marvel heroes that's all I can think of right now.

WTF are you talking about? Are you saying SP games cannot be considered fun/worthwhile? If so, it must suck to be you! :)

Totally misunderstood my post.

I mean that why should a SP game be called an "Off-Line" Game.  Seems stupid to me.

DRM restrictions aside, AFAIC: Offline=SP; Online=MP

Not always the case. Rayman Origins has local co-op multiplayer but no online.

you're a bunch of dickheads, what does it matter he calls the game offline, you knew very well what he meant next argument why are you bold?

What's the need for insults?

Of course we knew what he meant, I just stated that to me calling a game OFF-LINE is silly. It's like calling a MP Game "To not be played alone"

Take a chill pill.

There are so many great offline PC games. I'd say the total war games I probably played most.

Best would be Fallout NV, Batman AA and AC, dragon age origins.

In other words, the best single-player game? Probably Half-Life 2.

Although I suppose these days even single-player games are online (looking at you SimCity). :(

Why are most indie games 2D? It was only fresh and new the first time, now it's just annoying.

Recently, probably say Witcher 1/2.

Ever? Halflife.

Dark souls, ME franchise, Fallout, Elder scrolls are all exceptional games. But if I had to pick one that truly made a lasting impression on me I'd say Baldurs gate 2.

Why don't simply call it a singleplayer game?

Anyways, it's so much harder to mention best sp games than mp.

Here are a few many titles i enjoyed a lot:

- Deus Ex

- Splinter cell, Pandora tomorrow, Chaos Theory

- Grand Theft Auto Vice City, San Andreas

- Hitman 2 Silent Assassin, Contracts

- Half life 2

- Bioshock

- Cod 2

- Tony Hawks pro skater 4

- Sim City 4

- Fallout 3, New Vegas / Oblivion

And any 90s adventure game

Skyrim for its massive world and insane amount of quests that lets you play how you want for 100's of hours of gameplay.

Close 2nd is Minecraft.

And it will probably get accepted as fine since the new rules are ridiculous....

Give Mount&Blade2 or the X series a try if you're willing to make your own story mode.

Most amazing story or best offline game overall ? 

I have to say my favourite PC SP game of all time might be Half Life 1.

Best story ? I bet you can guess that.
