Today marks the release of three big games with major multiplayer components. Whether you’re stepping into the ring with WWE 2K14, sharpening your sword with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, or checking your magazine in Battlefield 4, we want to know how you’ll be playing first.

Are you the kind of player that likes to immerse yourself in the story and get your bearings before jumping online? Do you prefer to get an early start with multiplayer to stay ahead of the competition? Maybe you like to mix things up and bounce back and forth.

Let us know how you typically approach games like these. We’ll feature some of your comments in this afternoon’s second Reader Discussion.
