Still those multiplayer games with all these advantages are still worse evaluated and sold than the single player games Sony have been putting, so doesn't seem like these advantages even with several years of improvements made much of a difference. And I prefer to play a game complete and be done with it instead of playing the same game for a long time even more if it isn't as good as that other one.

It is a double edge sword. Polished single player game gets critical acclaim and practically guaranteed audience. Negative is little long term incentive to return. GaaS gets critically panned and it’s really anybody’s guess if it makes it past the first 6 months. But if it claws itself out a community, the long term rewards are great. 

Otherwise I get it, you do you. It’s different preferences we talking about. 

Not wrong. But even the single player games that excel get legs that keep selling months or even years after release.

Why does a game have to be literally relevant though? What benefits does being literally relevant offer to a game?

Benefits include continued updates and content. Pretty nice for the community. 

That offers benefits to the community, but what about the game itself? And what happens when all those updates still fail to make the game as good (or as well selling) as its competitors?

Do you believe that SoT for example, is better than some of the critically acclaimed PS4 exclusives, after all its updates? And if so, would most gamers agree with that?

You mean like No Mans Sky?. I mean what other game can SoT be really compared to on PS4?. Its a different style of game and im sure many people who enjoy it would say they enjoy it more then some single player offerings on PS4 and XBOne.

Be more fair to compare single player games to single player games and multi player games to multi player games..
