Some of the best games ever created have been replaced with multiplayer alternatives that are honestly nothing more than a terrible cash grab. Let me give you some examples
Elder scrolls: Oblivion was an absolute masterpiece that immersed you in a massive world with so many questions NPCs, and allows you to get lost in a fantasy world. Skyrim continue this trend, and although the storyline was much more water down and far less impressive, was still great. Elder scrolls online, however, is a cheap cash grab. New players starting out in Western sky room, with almost no direction, no plot, nothing to suggest what you are working Torrance. The combat is absolutely terrible, and it doesn't feel like a fantasy game at all. You are constantly spammed with stupid crap about their in-game store and why you should buy their crowns. absolute disgrace. The story doesn't feel like a medieval game at all, it feels like a very fast paced repetitive grind to kill things in a very pretty environment. Just a true waste of time and effort from everyone involved
Fallout: The idea of entering into a world where everything is dirty, destroyed, and a shadow of the world we know today, and the people that have survived and made a life in this world, is so fascinating and thrilling. but they had to ruin this by making an online version of fallout set in the backwoods area of West Virginia, the most racist state in the United States of America, and God, is it bad. The storyline, terribly written and hard to believe. The lack of any human NPC's makes it unfun and doesn't make it feel like any previous fallout game. Fallout 4 made it difficult for us to care about any of the factions because they were poorly written as well and weren't really that interesting. But Jesus, at least they had some humans to even care about. this game since launch hasn't had any humans, just a bunch of random enemies running around like some bad guy simulator. This is what the next generation of fallout is? Dear Lord, we traded down big-time. We could have had fallout Seattle, fallout Miami, fallout 3 remake... They gave us the absolute worst thing ever
Destiny: This is the successor of Halo. don't care what they say, or that it's not even related to the Halo storyline, it's the next space shooter. The storyline is just bad. You wake up as someone who has forgotten their past and has no memory of it, are introduced to the light, the power that courses through you and makes you basically a superhero. But that's where the story just about end. You just run around and kill things shoot things and loot tons of crap items that you just destroy anyway. Anything worth actually obtaining is obtained through the in game store which requires you to purchase silver for real life money. you will not find any good-looking armor or anything at all without purchasing silver. All customizations, new mounts, anyting. Vehicles, etc. All purchase for money. The absolute minimum amount of effort was put into this game and the developers get angry at us because they overwork themselves to provide us with a third of the contact you would normally have in a regular game. If destiny's was a single player game designed like Halo, with online multiplayer capability, it would be 1,000 times better than it is today. But instead, it's just a crap looter shooter in which you get this massive online world with 10 other people with you at any given time, and you just kill weak little enemies and collect crap loot that you can just destroy.
Warcraft: instead of getting Warcraft 4, we got world of Warcraft. It was great until about cataclysm, and then took a huge dive downward. As of today it's a game plagued with tryhard incels who spew racist remarks, insults, and other obscenities at people who don't want to put in at least 40 to 50 hours a week just to be able to be average at the game. It is absolutely necessary to put in at least 50 hours a week if you have any intention of participating in any game. Which is the only thing to do anyway because the leveling is incredibly boring and devoid of any life or fun. It was fun when it was a brand new world with so much to explore and see. But after making your 29th character, there's absolutely nothing fun or interesting about this game at all. We really traded down. They should have ended this game 10 years ago and just given us Warcraft 4. Instead, they kept the game going to milk it as long as they possibly could like their own star Cash cow, and also gave us Warcraft 3 reforged, a game that hardly even works and is literally the worst rated Blizzard game of all time because of the fact that it's just such a scam. the original Warcraft 3 works better than the Warcraft 3 reforged there's no way to get a refund, there's no compensation for them putting absolutely no effort or planning into this game to get it to actually work the way they promised it would.
These are just some of the most personal examples to me. But as you can see, based on everything mentioned list, these are some of the best game series we have ever played, and now they have crap money grab multiple are alternatives and have ruined all of these games for us permanently
