Jargon Buster #7: online competitive games and singleplayer games.

inspired by Kim’s post over on later levels I’ve decided that for this jargon buster I’ll be talking about the difference between an online competitive game and a non-competitive singleplayer game.

An online competitive game is a game that you play online with other people and in which your main objective is to try to win. an example of a competitive game is overwatch (review coming soon), which even features its own competitive mode.

A singleplayer game is a game that you play on your own and has a story and missions rather than being focused on winning and doing your best, personally, I don’t have a preference between either of these styles of game and play both types.

  1. This is very useful. Could you give us your thoughts on whether there are any up- or downsides to either type of play?
