How do you feel about Online Multiplayer?

Seems online multiplayer is pretty much a must for most games these days. But some gamers seem annoyed by the fact that seemingly every game these days seems to have it, arguing that it takes time and resources away from single player campaigns. I'm not neccessarily talking about games like CoD which people buy strictly for the multiplayer but rather games that were made to be single player experiences with online multiplayer thrown in (such as say, the Uncharted games (even though the multiplayer is pretty good imo)). Thoughts?

I rarely play games online anymore unless it's the key feature of the game.

I think this generation as a whole(from a gamer's, developer's, and publisher's perspective) was paying too much attention to online multiplayer. It's a good thing to have yes, and it's great to see it improved, but I don't think it was worth it at the expense of singleplayer experience

As long as it's done right, online multiplayer is a great thing.

I like online, but For most games I play on single player.
It depends how I feel, for some games, like Minecraft, I'll prefer single player. Then after a few months i'd prefer multiplayer.

Interesting. Why's that, out of curiosity?

I think the FPS genre was the only genre where their solo campaigns were seen as an afterthought to the multiplayer. In games like Uncharted, the single player experience has felt more robust than the online play.

Yeah, there are probably adventure games with online that seemed to be more of a focus than the singleplayer experience. Assassin's Creed Revelations' online seemed to have a more intricate plot than the single player campaign. But as a whole the online experience doesn't seem to outweigh the main solo campaign.

Depends on the game.
FPS/TPS games, eh, I can see why so many people like it, so I'm completely cool with it.

Games like LittleBigPlanet, love it.

Resident Evil...
Get it the **** away.

Etc.

Too me, It just doesn't feel right in Resident Evil. Plus, it's boring.
