Rseman, your response to what I said was asinine and proves that you failed to read what I actually wrote. Perhaps I should have qualified what I was saying as applying to PC games only, as the console market is not comparable, and definitely not at the same stage of MP development as the PC.
Furthermore, I wasn't saying that SP isn't relevant. If you had been paying any attention, rather than just getting your heckles up, you'd notice that I said that SP FPS games will not be able to compete with the MP market unless they innovate the SP FPS experience, rather than sticking to the same old run and gun formula. I also said that SP FPS is almost dead, which is very different from saying that it IS dead. Moreover, I was refering to SP FPS games on the PC, not single player in general. If I'm guilty of making blanket statements, your just as guilty as making blanket assumptions. At least I know what I wrote. Your ability to read, however, is questionable.
As for your comments about statistics and figures, well, that paragraph makes little to no sense. It's simply not readable. I don't want any of what you're on, as it obviously dulls your ability to communicate.
I don't care how much spare time you have, or the fact that you're in your late 30s. I'm in my late 20s, have been playing games for 20 years, and I don't have the time to play games for hours on end either. That wasn't the point, and your attempts to elevate your status above that of a child further reveals your arrogance and, due to the personal nature of what you said, your narcisism as well.
And as for clicking your heels together - does your wife know you crossdress and have a thing for a gay icon such as Judy Garland?
Some of us actaully think about what we say before prancing around like a twat. Oh, and you don't need to level up to be competitive in BF2. Maybe you're loosing your skills in your old age. Now just close your eyes, think of home, and fade away.
