Forget MP, Give Me Awesome SP Experiences!

Alas, I have grown tired of MP games. I have grown more annoyed with games that could have had much better SP campaigns but decided to tack on MP instead.
Going online to play military shooters has evolved with playing against TIMMIES to playing with both TIMMIES and an older crowd who really believes they are in Favela somewhere and communicate with each other like they were part of a SEAL team. At this point I am unsure which is more grating on the nerves.
Lately for me it is more enjoyable to power up my 360 and hop right into a game of Lollipop Chainsaw and simply play. No annoying TIMMIES, no annoying players demanding cover fire because they want to get from point A to point B.
How about, no I won't because I'M PLAYING A F*CKING GAME!!!! Sure I play within the confines of what the game is about but I don't sit on my couch thinking I'm really in the service and behave like a shell shocked douchebag shouting commands into a mic.
So let me digress. Perhaps I am singling out all MP games and I really shouldn't as I have been playing games with complete randoms as of late and I have been having a great time. Games such as Split Second, Gears 3, and Max Payne 3 to name a few.
Much different online community with these games. Split Second is just outright fun with no matter who is in a room. Gears 3 has become more of a hangout with complete randoms having a good time than what used to be an aggrivating assault of trash talking baffoonery, and Max Payne 3 is just the same.
However, lately most times I just want to sit and play all by my lonesome and it seems as though the art of a great single player game is lost these days, minus the larger RPG-type games.
I am really looking forward to Darksiders 2 and the new Assassins Creed...and of course Madden, because our Geezer League is awesome
Also looking forward to the new Need for Speed which looks incredible!
I would love a new Kameo, Conker, or Banjo (but MS killed Rare and now they are forced to make Kinect shovelware.).
