I agree-single player games aren't dead and won't be dead for years, or even ages, to come. It's that emotional and psychological connection that single player games give to the player that hooks the gamer to the experience and why single player still has enough significance to warrant its existence as a catalyst in the video game industry. As long as video games have single player I will keep playing video games, but the moment single player is no longer a focus for developers and they do multiplayer and other aspects instead is the moment that I stop. I will become a driving force in the game industry when I'm older and make single player games that stimulate the player and show them new, unique perspectives and give them a reason to not give up on single player. If single player is to survive, then developers must take action and make the dream stay alive. If single player is dead, then the industry is dead. No way around that. Naughty Dog is doing a great thing like Ed Prosser said by putting a huge focus on the scope and scale of The Last Of Us's story. We don't know if they may be the 'last of the developers' who truly care about story anymore so we better be glad and grateful that Naughty Dog still has the courage to make that happen because we don't know if this may be the last chance to show gamers who don't care about story that it still matters. I know there are gamers out there who care about story-I just hope everyone else sees the story side of things before it's too late and story is gone. If developers give up, then I will take charge and show them what they've been missing if they won't heed the advice of words alone. As long as I'm around, story will be around-Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us will not be made in vain-when this game comes out, people will see a new light, open their eyes, and realize that the key to the industry's problem has been staring in their faces all along. That key is story: once most developers out their quit being so stubborn and afraid to take a risk, a chance, then that will be the day that the industry is reborn again. Hopefully it doesn't take another market crash for them to realize that. If Nintendo won't beat me to the punch, then I will make history with my contributions because what I have to do for the video game industry will not go unsung or unseen. That is a promise that will be unbroken for as long as I still believe story is what holds all this together. Who agrees that I have a point and who agrees to disagree with my point of view?
