Personally I agree that too much emphasis is placed on competitive multiplayer, I play online but only with my brother in games that allow co-operative modes so things like Rainbow Six Vegas/Vegas 2 and ARMA2. If we play Sins of a solar empire we would team up against computer players.

For Consoles I like the older games like Baldurs Gate and Dungeond and dragons heroes (there was a nother one but can't for the life of me remember what it is called) but Me and the missus would play these for hours co-operatively (or not if she kept stealing all the gold :) ). Split screen competitive would not be something she would do therefore we dont buy those style (hence not bought much for the PS3 except singstar and even that we play on duet mode).

Would be interested hwo many gamers still play deathmatch and their varients to the hilt and dont play co-op"
