Since when did online play and capability make or break a game?
It seems like today that games like Halo would've been crap if it weren't for online, and games like Uncharted and Bioshockare severely underappreciated for being offline singleplayer!
Uncharted and Bioshock imo were the best games released this year. Their story lines, gameplay and graphics surpasses anything I had seen in such a long time, especially uncharted; it even blew me away with the soundtrack, animations, and insignificant load times.
Yes, online play can be fun, but it should be kept as a side note.
