EVERY game these days must have multi-player and/or some kind of social plug-in or both. They assume every gamer wants to share and/or play with his or her buddies and this is more important than anything else about a game.

No # it doesn't apply to PC players because PC players make up a very small percentage of gamers, whether they wanna admit that or not. Console gamers are where the money is at for major developers so of course the game is going to be tailored to that specific audience. Yes the game is unbalanced but I think they missed the point of a beta. People try the game, then give feedback, then the developers take said feedback and make changes accordingly before launch. Overall the game sucks no matter what your preference is. It's not DOOM, it's a halo ripoff as far as the multiplayer is concerned. Hopefully the single-player campaign can redeem this piece of repetitive, FPS garbage.
I know EA had a policy that all its developers had to inject those elements whether they wanted them or not. So it isn't always the devs who want them. Sometimes, it's a corporate policy. I remember when they shoehorned facebook into The Sims.
