I stopped playing online multiplayer a long time ago, since early to mid 2000s. I guess I just stopped giving a shit with the way things had changed and turned out with multiplayer in the late 2000s to the present, in particularly online multiplayer games.
But I do really miss those good old days of LAN local multiplayer games, but that is so long ago, don't really have friends locally to hang around and play LAN games with anymore.
Anyone else feel the same? Or lacked interest in multiplayer games or playing online?
Instead I find myself more interested in Single Player campaigns and custom modifications, but that's only because PC games can be modified as you can see from here: https://www.moddb.com/

I've never stopped, I tend to switch between the two. When MP gets a bit frustrating due to servers or other reasons then I'll go to SP for a while to cool off but if I play SP for too long then I might start to get bored
I play both SP and MP for different reasons. MP I like it for the adrenaline and fast paced action, sometimes nothing beats going up against a human opponent. SP I like for the immersion and story, SP can give you all kind of moments if you get drawn into the story or you can just relax and explore in open world SP games
I should probably mention that back in my 6thform/college me and the guys used to play wolfenstein:ET on LAN
Also it does kind of depend on the game for me, on some games I'll only play single player because the multiplayer was. . well. . . rubbish And in other games I tend to stick heavily to MP
In the end I'd say I'm in between

I'm not a frequent gamer but I absolutely will not do multiplayer.
My boyfriend is a hardcore gamer and keeps wanting me to but I hate it. The last time I tried was Red Dead Redemption. The second I spawned, I was instantly killed. It killed my desire to ever do it again, and even playing with my boyfriend I hate because he always wins or deliberately is shit to make me feel better.
