I feel much the same way. I just don't like to compete with other people, I prefer working together. I do play a few competitive games with my bro and nephew like Worms and Hero Academy, but I don't really play them to win, but to hang out with family who live far away.

Mostly I view playing games as puzzle solving, and playing against the AI is a puzzle to solve: how to best use my forces to defeat the AI on this map, terrain, position, faction, etc. Other reasons I play mostly SP is to experience a narrative, so I like games such as Skyrim and Deus Ex too. And lastly I play games to relax and playing competitively with winning as my goal is stressful for me, not fun.

Same for me. I rarely play any game online against other people, the Battlefield series is probably the only exception. Even then I'm usually a loner. I bought Starcraft 2 for the campaign and co-op compstomps and that's it. I've purchased every release of Sins of a Solar Empire and never once even pressed the multiplayer button. I only have one friend who even plays games online anymore and the real world keeps sapping away that time. And quite frankly my skills as a gamer are getting weaker with age, I have no desire to be continually obliterated. That might be why I like Battlefield, it may be multiplayer but because I stick to 32-64 player servers the chaos helps filter out getting your ass handed to you by one guy.
