TGA 2017: “Save the Single-Player Gamer” Trailer Brings the Laughs and the Deals

While MP1st is a multiplayer-focused site, we do play and appreciate a lot of single-player games. With more and more games going the “Games as a Service route” (GaaS), Bethesda has made a trailer that wants to #SavePlayer1 and was rolled out during The Game Awards.

The video’s hosted by Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman), and Bethesda is even making a $100,000 donation to the ESA to fund the next generation of video game developers.

Gaming, like life, is often about social interaction – a time to join with others in a common cause, or to simply exorcise a few demons with some cathartic virtual carnage. But sometimes you just need a little time away. A place where you can go to escape the vicissitudes of everyday life. And that’s where a great single-player game comes in.

Once upon a time, these solitary experiences dominated the gaming landscape. But in recent years, with multiplayer on the rise, single-player games have become fewer in number. Meanwhile, the community has been clamoring for more single-player games, and the media has penned a panoply of pieces bemoaning the loss of single-player experiences. But never fear! Bethesda is here to help. In a new video that debuted at The Game Awards, starring none other than Lynda Carter, we share our vision for saving the single player.

So whether you pick up Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, The Evil Within 2, Prey, Dishonored 2, DOOM, Fallout 4: Game of the Year, Skyrim Special Edition – or all of the above – rest assured that Bethesda has you covered with a critically acclaimed, award-winning single-player game that’s just what you need.

There’s a bunch of discounts for Bethesda’s games happening right now. We here at MP1st love games of all kinds. So we support #SavePlayer1 and play multiplayer as well. There’s no reason we can’t have both, right?
