3 Reasons Why 2019 Will Be a Big Year For Single Player Games
So we are finally into 2019, and the huge lineup of games seems a little less far now.
Some believe 2018 was a great year for video games, but with the types of games I prefer to play, and many of you can relate, I felt they were severely lacking.
Sure we got big hitters like God Of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, Spiderman, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but other than that 2018 was yet another year for mindless multiplayer service games which unfortunately also included titles from previously good quality single player franchises like Fallout 76.
That is going to change in 2019. People are finally starting to realise that single player games are not dead, which last year's God Of War proved very well.
So in 2019, here are 3 reasons why it's going to be a treat for all the single player game fans.
#1. Sequels to big old franchises
2019 will be a nostalgia ride for many of us gamers because our favourite franchises which we grew up playing are returning with full-blown sequels with next-generation visuals.
Games like Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2, Gears 5, Crackdown 3, Kingdom Hearts 3, Animal Crossing, Shenmue 3 and even The Last Of Us Part 2 are all coming this year, and yes, they are all big single player games, with addition to a multiplayer mode in some. Add some good quality remakes to the list such as MediEvil and Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled and we have a huge lineup of games with an even bigger audience just dying to get their hands on these titles.
This is important because many of us feared that just like EA, most of the developers had started to prioritise multiplayer mode first and single player campaign later, but fortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. Single player games are well and alive and 2019's upcoming lineup shows just that.
