The point many people are trying to make is that multiplayer in many games is unnecessary. That's where the "tacked-on" part comes from. Batman: Arkham Origins would have sold just as many copies if it was single-player only. Play as the Batman in his quest to stop Black Mask or play as a generic "Bane" or "Joker" street thug? From reading the multiplayer's description on the back of the box I can tell they tried really hard to make being a generic thug sound exciting but it's just not. Tomb Raider is another one. Since when did Tomb Raider need team deathmatches? It would have also sold just as many copies if it was single-player only given that the MP was a ghost town only a few weeks after launch. The multiplayer isn't even around for that long anyway. I can play Batman: Arkham Origins in 10 years time If I want to but the servers for multiplayer will likely be down by then if not even sooner. What is it with single-player games being expected to accommodate multiplayer anyway? If I want a multiplayer game then I'll just play a multiplayer game to begin with. I don't like this trend of retrofitting existing series to appeal to people who wouldn't have cared about that type of game anyway. Either do single-player or multiplayer not both. Titanfall's approach is great. That game knows what its about and what it wants to be. Having multiplayer won't make your game the next Call of Duty and sell 20 million copies.
