I'm hoping for more of a discussion than a simple poll, but the poll is there never the less. Anyways. It has been on my mind for a while now, and I use to always thing Single-Player didn't have much value on BYOND. Now, however, I find myself questioning that.
I can think of a lot of ideas that can be multi-player, but would be less limited if they were used in a single-player, and even so I often lean toward multi-player unless I see no way to make it so.
Why? Because of the limitations on cinematics/cutscenes, and more importantly the fact that BYOND seems to have a lot more multi-player games. Now, honestly, cinematics/cutscenes is clearly just an excuse, even I know that,so it boils down to majority.
I find giving in to that rather annoying, since it is not much different than if I were making an anime game because they are the majority. The more I think about it, the more I think that single-player games have a lot of potential, and the more I believe I may have just freed my mind from a trap it somehow got its self into.
So, the question becomes why do you believe so few single-players exist on BYOND? and do you feel there should be more? Also, if not, then why? What are some good reasons to avoid designing a single-player game? Besides the fact that BYOND has things built in to make multi-player easier to make, of course.
Vote, discuss, debate; I look forward to reading and possibly responding to it all.
