single player games

What are “Single Player Games”? Single player games are games that are intended for one person only. Only one person can play that game… completely alone… completely alone. For people who may be socially shy or awkward, don’t speak the majority language of that game, or are too young to interact with others, this can be a great thing.

With single player games, there is no need to worry about predators, stalkers, youngsters seeing nudity, hearing language, being bullied, harassed, verbally abused, missing content, or having to interact with others. You can just enjoy playing your game without a care in the world. So you really don’t have to worry about anything as these games are for one person only.

Just because you’re the only one playing doesn’t mean there aren’t things to watch out for. While most of the negative things about all types of games come from some of the real life people in those games, some of the negative things come from the type of games and the types of games for the wrong person.

There are plenty of horror games, games with nudity, language, intense themes, intense scenes, smoking, drugs and alcohol, gambling with real life money, suggestive themes, blood and gore, games that have violence, etc. They are for one person only.

You really need to look at the game’s website, social accounts, videos, images, description, tags, and especially reviews. You need to gather all the information about the game you are thinking of buying, either for yourself or someone else.

If the game is on Steam, Humble Bundle or some similar websites; they will show you the description, videos of that company, images, user and non-user tags, user reviews, website, company and social accounts. However, if you are on the game’s website, they may not show everything you need to know to decide whether or not to buy the game.

The bare minimum some game companies will show is a very brief sales pitch description, a small number of images (5 at best), a video or two of them, and their social accounts. The most they will show is an informative description, photos of themselves and users, user reviews, videos of them and their social accounts. I am not going to go into the good and bad of the games and how to know if the game is good or not in this article, that is another article.

Now you would think that every game would have a single player mode and then add other modes later on. After all, it’s somewhat easier for players to play alone and create a new world or file than it is to pay so many dollars a month or a year to host a server, go through the trouble of getting and maintaining the server, and then having the players actually connect to the server. At first, you would think that some games will add a single player mode before adding co-op or multiplayer, right? INCORRECT!

There are tons of games out there that only have multiplayer, co-op, and any other non-single player mode. Some games are multiplayer only, like MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online). It is possible to play multiplayer games with more than one person on a computer in the same room, but most people call it local multiplayer or local co-op. This allows you to play with someone on the same computer in the same room.

You would not be able to play someone from Sweden if you are in the US in local multiplayer or local co-op. You have to go online for that. It’s just like how you talk to people all over the world from Twitter, Facebook, Discord, Skype, etc., which are all online. If your internet is down, you can’t talk to anyone on those platforms because you’re not online.

There are many different types of games and game modes for different people. You can get a game that is strictly single player or a game that has both single player and multiplayer and just play solo for the time being. Some people like the game and not the multiplayer part, so they just play the single player part. I recommend starting out with single player and then getting a game later that has both so you can easily transition to multiplayer instead of being thrown into multiplayer.
