I mean the answer to that is kind of obvious but if you need it broken down for you... it's multiplayer.
I don't mind spending $60 on a game without multiplayer. But for that to happen the game has to wow me. I have to be interested in the storyline, the gameplay, the graphics, everything. For a game with multiplayer I don't have to be wowed. All I need to know is that I will enjoy playing the multiplayer for at least a few months.
I play a lot of multiplayer games, but having online multiplayer has never been a factor in buying a game for me. I've beaten the Ratchet & Clank games multiple times. There's all of the collectibles to unlock weapons or skins. Challenge mode. Omega weapon upgrades in challenge mode. And I just replay those games a lot because they're fun.
I think the "everything must have multiplayer" wave has ended. There were some ridiculous tacked on multiplayer modes in games that didn't need them. Some people still liked the multiplayer, but games like Batman, Mass Effect, Dead Space, BioShock, Assassin's Creed, and God of War did not need multiplayer. Let the games that are better suited for it or who focus on multiplayer handle it.
I can see exactly how a game like Knack doesn't appeal to people. I have friends who want nothing to do with CG animated kids movies, but I don't even care. Toy Story 3 was bigger than Star Trek or The Avengers for me. But I still like mature gritty dramas and action flicks too. I'll watch Toy Story, but then I'll watch Heat, Gladiator, or Training Day.
