Debate of the Day: The Greatest Single Player Campaign Ever?

Today’s debate is a simple question: what’s your favorite single player campaign to date?

Every single game now is focused on trying to bring multiplayer to the mix, regardless of whether or not it fits in the most recent example would be Assassin’s Creed, which was in many ways the ultimate lone wolf game, but now you can play online with a hundred thousand other “lone wolfs.”

I’m not saying this is a bad thing, but if you’re like me, it can be nice to just sit back and play through a game solo, and I’m wondering if any of your favorites mirror my own. Here are some of my picks.

Best story – Mass Effect, which was more compelling than most movies I’ve seen. Combat and missions themselves needed work though.

Best gameplay – Assassin’s Creed 2, whose story was incomprehensible, but the missions were diverse and gameplay incredibly fluid and organic.

Shock and awe – Modern Warfare 2 had moments in it that were among the most stunning I’ve seen in any game, from the siege of the White House to the massacre of No Russian.

Most hours invested – Oblivion, which I sunk 200 hours into between two playthroughs, and offline the entire time. Not easy for a single player game.

I know I’m missing classic titles like Ocarina of Time, but to be honest, I was too dumb to ever beat the Water Temple. But that’s why I want to hear from you, what have been your favorite one-player campaigns?
