I much rather play a game with others in the same room, and not video games at that. Board games, that's where it's at! Actually having to really interact with your fellow players (with some healthy helping of tomfoolery) is that much more engaging and fun. A video game certainly will never be able to hold as much of a social factor, in my mind.
That's probably also why I keep looking at MMOs and not getting them... at all. You want to interact with others, but not face to face? That's really the only draw there is to these games, since as games they typically don't seem to be particularly good (at least not as far as I can see). I don't think I'll ever figure it out.
It doesn't come as a big surprise then when I say that I prefer my video games to be of the singleplayer variety. Not only because they have greater focus on narrative and gameplay in general, but also because I consider them for my 'me times'. Something I can play when and where I want. I don't know why, but there's just something very tedious about arranging games online, and playing with strangers is more often than not quite unappealing.
So that's basically it for me: Single = Video Games / Multi = Tabletop Games
I was just curious to see if anybody else has similar preferences. Or does it matter to you at all? I suppose there are plenty who embrace single and multi in video games equally... or even who prefer multi, though I can't exactly see why.
