I’m going to talk about Local Multiplayer, things like Online multiplayer vs Local multiplayer, Why I think more games should have it and the benefits of Local multiplayer. As you probably know Local multiplayer is being able to play with someone that is physically with you and Online multiplayer is the ability to be able to play with another game owner through the internet. Now Online multiplayer’s benefits are pretty plain, it lets you play with almost anyone almost anywhere. I think the Pros of Local multiplayer get often over looked by indie Devs, But the biggest in my opinion is the social experience, there’s nothing quite like playing games with friends and family rather than strangers(which is fun, but not as fun), No need for another game, and No internet Lag. I think More games need Local multiplayer because if it has online multiplayer support for Local Multiplayer should be pretty easy to implement, another reason is it’s fun to play with people you know in person, online is fun but it has a different feeling to me, a more distant feeling. The biggest cons to local multiplayer are, you need to be there to play and split screen(which is easy to get used to). But I think Local should come with most games with Online Support(Save for MMOs and games like them and games incompatible with multiplayer). What do you think? Should Local Multiplayer Die out, Is Online better, Or I’m I dumb?

    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
