I've been a gaming nut since I started out with a Playstation. Ever since then, it's kinda ruined my school performance (oh, well). These days, I'm into RPG's and whatever I'm willing to try.

Just another day venting my gaming opinions. What is your opinion on console multiplayer? I'm talking about the online ones, not local. Do you think in recent games like the latest Tomb Raider it's not necessary, or is there some merit to it being there at all?

I guess it kinda depends on the genre it's being used in, FPs's being the most common. For action adventure games, I guess it could work, but it would have to be streamlined for it to be accessible to everyone. Assassin's Creed multiplayer would have to be one of the more outstanding action multiplayer modes. To be honest, I'm not that into multiplayer because I barely find any joy out of it (which is in my next bit).

The problem, I think, about multiplayer however is the lack of mercy that occurs when you jump into online arenas. I can barely walk two seconds without being stabbed, gutted or getting pumped full of lead. I'm really sorry if I sound like a whiny, newby baby here, but I'm writing what comes to mind. Multiplayer is fun, but it's hard to be excited about it if I'm not thrown a bone once in a while. 

Another problem is how multiplayer ties into trophies and achievments. As a trophy whore on PSN, I'm pretty crazy about wanting to get the platinum trophy on all my games. But when I need to get a trophy that needs me to rank up in multiplayer, it would probably take me triple the time it takes for me to finish a story campaign and therefore just forget about it. 

Thanks for putting up with my bitching. What are your thoughts? Necessary? Needlessly painful? Driving you crazy from not being able to get that last goddamn achievement/trophy? Feel free to share.
