I can speak on behalf of Killzone 3 MP.. no it is not dead.. A lot of people still play. And I can't wait for all of the newbies to pop on so I can crush them haha I'm top ranked biooooooooootch I love the game and same goes for Killzone 2. The series is levels above COD that shit is a flash in the pan.. they bring out so many of them in a year .. and they're all the same shit.. just a new name.
As for the multiplayer should be free.. um no! If I buy a game including campaign and multiplayer. I don't feel some jackass should get what I paid for .. for free.. sorry If you can't afford to buy the games maybe you should get a career or real job
This right here is why I don't play mp outside of GTA's free mode anymore. There's far too many 'serious' players who are a lil too good for my liking.
What's funnier still is how they will bitch at you over their mics and then vote to kick you if you play 'unconventionally'.
I had people whining about how I was using a car(or heli) in GTA(Grand Theft AUTO
) as an assist to get kills when I still played TDM/DM on that game. I guess they expected me to walk/run across the entire map once I got killed to get back to where most of the players were at?
As for whether this MP should be free or not, I really wish publishers would release seperate single and mp modes for games and charge LESS if seperating them. But free is good, level cap and having to pay $15 to unlock everything else is NOT.
