31. Re: Romero on Making an Old School FPS: Mar 12, 2012, 01:52 Asmo

The point was obviously that story has little relevance to shooting, the namesake of the genre. It wasn't about singleplayer vs multiplayer.

Singleplayer is just something that id doesn't do very well, at least since Doom 2 (a Romero game), so I brought up the multiplayer. It so happens that multiplayer also makes it easier and far more obvious to judge quality of gameplay mechanics and design in an FPS.

So why not just judge a game on it's graphics? Or sound? Making your criteria more specific because you acknowledge that certain aspects of a title aren't great does not rate the game as a whole, just that aspect.

Doom 1/2/3, Q1,2,4, Rage all had single player components (in most cases the majority of the game was SP). It's nonsensical to ignore all of that and only focus on MP/game mechanics/graphics etc and say "all these games were good".
