Default All shooters should have Arena mode

What an ingenious idea! A full-blown mode dedicated to single player goodness. If you want something where you want to take a break from whiners & griefers in multiplayer, where you want take out that aggression you've bottled up from your daily routines, or where you just want to play something without silly things like "story" or "plot" getting in your way, arena mode is it.

There should be a creed written somewhere: "All ye shooters, thou must hath single player modes in thy games."

Thumbs up Re: All shooters should have Arena mode

Arena mode is a awesome extra in Sin Emergence, good example for other games.
A great addition to games with multiplayer maps, is the support of bots, so you can practice offline.

Uh... no. There does not need to be single player modes for mutiplayer games such as CS.

But seriously guys. As much as we want to play with other people, there's always a need to play with ourselves.

I'm really not sure if those two words apply to all of us.

Amen to that brother. But Arena mode is better to be in a non-realistic shooter than the realistic ones. IMagine playing SWAT 4 in arena , one pop and you're dead

i don't agree...

some fps don't need / or it wouldn't fit gameplay to have Arena mode...

like the above post said it wouldn't work to good in games like Swat 4...

Was that me?!?

Imagine FEAR with arena mode... it's AI is already awesome. Throw in a dunamic difficulty system and arena mode. Now that would be intense.
