Valve, who’re ironically leading the charge for the abolition of silent protagonists in multiplayer. Team Fortress 2 added pretty much unprecedented characterization to the multiplayer FPS scene, while Left 4 Dead must be one of the only MP FPS’s to string together a coherent narrative, especially once you take the new DLC into account.

With the increasing move to social gaming in the industry, are games like gears of war, built for coop going to become the norm? Will sp become altogether abolished, in the style of l4d? Will coop narrative ever stop feeling shoehorned? All this and more over the next decade.
