I find the trend of online multiplayer only games disturbing.
Is this an XBox 360 only issue, or do games that are released across all consoles have different multiplayer options? As in, online only for XBox 360, online and offline for PS3 version. Games like Shaun White Snowboarding, Stoked or Midnight Club:LA would be getting a lot more play if I could play against my flatmate and friends. Call of Duty, while a lot of fun, would benefit too from offline 3+ player nazi zombies or at the very least, 2 player online co-op.
I never liked the idea of XBox Live, that's a seperate post in itself, but online only multiplayer is not the future.
