When you buy a game, do you weight multiplayer experiences or single player experiences more?

For me, i used to be single player but now i get bored of single player since i dont have a lot of commitment to one game at a time anymore (i dont like playing many single player games at once). So, for me i buy for multiplayer, i love competition, co-op and such that i can do with my friends and not feel like i have to commit so much, i dont care if the single player is short or isnt great as long as there is a good multiplayer to keep me coming back. With too many single player games once its done....it just sits in the corner and gathers dust.

If its a good game, then it doesn't matter that much to me. I do enjoy playing games online such as COD, but an engaging single player experience is important.

Mostly single player. I never have friends over, my brother hates me, and my parents aren't really gamers. That's why I love online multiplayer.

Single Player mostly. I have just gotten very sick of very fouled mouth little kids to the point of I can barely take playing anything online. Either that or some wanna be cool guy either getting high or acting like it. Just freaking annoying. I think its funny also how some people criticise games like GTA4 or Fallout 3 for being violent or vulgar but yet dont with online games when there is 10x the amount of it online.

First the single-player has to sound interesting enough to get my intrest but multi is the clincher for me. I need multiplayer modes for when I finish the game or I'm not that interested.

I purchase games for many reasons though multiplayer is one thing I sometimes buy a game just for. Like Conduit for an example.
Otherwise a great/fantastic offline (sometimes co-op), story mode is what I usually look into playing.

Just for you.

I always been more of a soloist myself. It's a good thing, 'cause nobody ever wants to play with me.

I can't say I blame them. :D

Mainly single player games since I rarely have friends over, and my family are not gamers...except for my sister...but she's 9, so...yeah....lol.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Multiplayer, so it gives me replayability.

Well, I generally don't know anybody who'll play games with me, so I usually play solo games. And not just video games, either - I've been devising ways to play D&D on my own for a while now (and I think I've struck gold!)

Of course, when it comes to Mario Kart and Wii Sports, I always have at least one relative on-hand with which to race a couple of laps or bowl a few strikes :)

I think I prefer a very deep, engaging single player experience. I'm a sucker for a good story :)
