    Multiplayer online. I get bored with most single player's really fast, but I can do the same online FPS for years.

    I like single player mode. I like doing all the campaigns etc. Multi-player is ok too but usually doesn't engage me as long. Online is a different story though -I've never player WoW EVER for fear of loosing my life.

    multiplayer with other friends is not my type. but i like single player cooperative with friends. reminds me of Serious Sam and Gears of War.

    I like them both even though playing with Multiplayers can get very boring or dangerous.

    I prefer single player. Mainly because when I take a game online, I usually get some stupid shit kid in the game, that has no respect for the other players. The only game I even take online anymore is Diablo 2, and me doing that, is extremely rare.

    My forays into online gaming have proved fruitless. If I wanted to get absolutely destroyed in Battlefield or Starcraft (the only two games I had in my collection that I even felt were worth going online for).....I would......um......

    I don't know. But my point is, I suck at playing multiplayer games. Which is why I like singleplayer games more - because it doesn't matter if you suck, eventually you'll beat it.

    Also, co-op is the most underrated, underused, and underdeveloped option any game could have. Nothing beats co-op (because if you suck there are others to pick up the slack :p). I'm not just talking about Halo style co-op (fun as it is) where it's just singleplayer +1. I'm talking Splinter Cell co-op where teamwork is vital and where there's (preferably) a whole separate storyline for it.

    I have to say TF2 changed my whole outlook on Multi player games and raised the bar in general.

    Since purchasing a Wii, I have realized I prefer single player. A 300 dollar mistake, I know.

    QFT.

    I also enjoy the single player story, and feeling of working towards some sort of conclusion.

    I used to love multiplayer games, but within the first hour of playing online in GTA IV that love quickly subsided.
