If it weren't for F2P, we would have significantly fewer multiplayer-only games.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

It is a bad thing if you like multiplayer games. The best multiplayer games are the ones that are multiplayer-only. CS, Tribes, Q3, UT, etc. These days, multiplayer is either tacked on or has to split resources with single-player, which leads to generic and forgettable multiplayer experiences.

Conversely, the best single-player games are the ones that focus exclusively on single-player. If you're going to make a single-player game, make it single-player-only. If you're going to make a multiplayer game, make it multiplayer-only. When you try to cater to both, you end up satisfying neither.
