    hotseating is far more intense than online play. Also rules out the lag factor.

    *screenpeaks* OMG, FUCKIN' PRO.

    At least that's what I used to do in my days of 4-player, local sessions of Jet Force Gemini.

    Screen peeking is the only thing I dislike about local multiplayer. And I don't even worry about that anymore because I got bored of shooters a long time ago. I've been playing Minecraft with my brother via LAN for the past week. If we don't play that, we play Dungeon Defenders or, more commonly, Overgrowth, Jamestown, or Shank.

    On the topic of standalone multiplayer, why not? Single-player campaigns are generally pretty terrible and definitely not worth the other $45 of the game (assuming the devs set the multiplayer value at $15). I can't play anything more demanding than Runescape (and that I quit because I came to hate 99% of the other players), so I save a lot of money in the end. Then I can go back to playing offline games I bought for $20 and haven't grown tired of even after hundreds of hours of playtime.

    If this whole post seems like a rant, consider that I get 1200ms ping when connecting to a server in my own state and I pay $100 for it because the only alternative is dial-up. It's easy not to appreciate the recent trend of games built around multiplayer under those conditions.
