Difficult for some i agree with internet, and mingling with the asshats of xbox live is also not one of my favourite pastimes, but if done in such a way that they can't 'grief' you then it's possible it could still be groovy with a side of awesome?
If it's like guild wars 2 (which is excellent) then yes, I'd be more interested. But even battlefront was great offline, I mean, I've never actually played it online
I'd just rather have a SP experience, I don't mind about always online, but I'd prefer an option to play in the world with no one else. I am too quick to dismiss it, I'll admit to that anyway.
Edit; in fact, you saying battlefront has annoyed me more, mainly because I think it would be awesome if the game was playable with just hundreds of bots standing in for humans.
I don't mean battlefront in the full sense of course, that was quite segmented gameplay with separate missions etc, i meant more the potential for huge battles with multiple classes etc.
I love my solo games, i'll never get tired of running round endless RPG's and in no way do i want to share that experience, but in the same way that something like ME was compromised a little by the inclusion of MP, could the same not be said of Destiny in reverse? If it's an online only game, would adding a specific single player component not harm said development?
They definitely look to be aiming for something that's not been done on console,as Jonty alludes it ticks all of the MMO boxes but the way they're talking suggests there's still some other shit going down too so all we can do is wait-see. To dismiss it this early is undoubtedly your prerogative, but they're talking a good game and seemingly aiming for the stars so at least see how it plays out first.
In my head i've got something like Reach with human controlled soldiers/engineers/whatevers suddenly getting attacked by human controlled invaders - being able to call for support from your own race/allies to save you if getting overwhelmed - imagine air support controlled by human pilots from a nearby moon base etc - run wild with your imagination, remembering it probably won't ever be that
good, but at least dare to dream - i fear this over-long, shooter drenched console cycle has rendered you too cynical young hairy padawan...
