PC 2-player off-line single console two controller games?

I'm trying to find PC games where two players can play on a single computer/single screen using two separate controllers/joysticks. It doesn't matter if the game is split-screen or full screen, nor does it matter if the game is cooperative or competitive. I'm not after "hotswapping" where players take turns by using a single controller. So far I have listed the following games but I think some of them may be single controller hotswapping games (let me know if this is the case). Can anybody add to this list (especially more recently released games)?

Worms

Alien V pred 2 (pc)

Civilization 4 (hotswapping only?)

Doom 2 / Quake

Galactic Civilizations II (hotswapping only?)

Gears of War

Hidden & Dangerous 2

Lego-Star Wars

Medieval II: Total War: Kingdoms expansion (hotswapping only?)

Obscure

Operation Flash Point

Serious Sam 1 & 2

X Men Legends

I don't think you can do that with any of those games except for worms, PC games DON'T have split screen, you need to play online for co-op

I know games like worms and the earlier Civilization games offered multiplayer on one PC but there haven't been any PC games that use split screen like the consoles. You can play co-op over a lan or online but that's the only way it can be done on the PC.

Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (2 player co-op)

Virtua Tennis 3

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia (4 player co-op)

Shadowgrounds & Shadowgrounds Survivor (4 player co-op)

There's Shadowgrounds Survivor that allows for 2 players on one PC (multiple mice and keyboards).

Some of the original NFS games.. not sure about the more recent ones. NFS, NFS2 etc had split screen on PC and you could use the one keyboard to play. Not sure if you could use controllers or not.

Nevereathim, you're TOTALLY wrong, there ARE a bunch of games that have split-screen on pc, specially racing old ones.

Ia m also looking for the same! So, i know some...

I might Add:

Obscure 2 (totally recommended!)

Every Single goddamned FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer

Top Spin 1 & 2

House of The Dead 1, 2 & 3 (the third looks neat and it's pretty recent, but we prefered the second one)

Worms Blast

...And AvP2 is not 2p man... I have it and nope, it's not co-op... and I'm pretty sure the Serious Sam and Hidden and Dangerous aren't either. how I wish there are more games like the Obscures for PC and on the same comp... we have now Resident Evil 5, but this far I don't know if it's 2Player co-op.

I also have Monster Madness, but we couldn't make it work for more than one player on the same computer, so I have no idea if it's 4p offline...

Edited: I forgot!!! :

Crimsomland

Lord of The Rings: Return of The King

aaaaaaaaand! The best surprise! I found a cool website about co-op gaming! there are more games that I didn't know you could play with a friend, like Left 4 Dead!! (yes!! it's true!). Go check this: www.co-optimus.com

Trine... Street Fighter IV

edit: Geh, this is a really old thread someone dug up

...if you are going to add fighting games man... u_u there are TONS of them... including all the Mugens that can be played co-op!

Check the page I recommended.. there isn't every game listed there (they are missing the House of the Dead series and they ARE for Pc and ARE co-op on the same screen!)

TERMINATOR SALVATION IS CO-OP SPLIT-SCREEN!! yeeehaa! ^_^

Left 4 Dead allows split screen on PC, one person can use the keyboard and mouse and the other can use a 360 controller. You can use this tutorial: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=745113 I'm pretty sure Left 4 Dead 2 will allow it also.

Trine, I was playing co-op the other day, my sister used the 360 controller, and I used the mouse and keyboard.

Rayman Origins, Renegade Ops and Jamestown are a few with local play (I think only Renegade Ops could be splitscreen, could be wrong).

Worms is a turn based game that doesn't support gamepads or joysticks as far as I know.

I think that's about as close as you'll get to what you want on the games you've listed though.

What are you talking about, I played some Worms last week with a 360 controller, worked perfect......

I wish more games had this. Borderlands 2 would be perfect and actually beat the console on all aspects then.

I'd hook up my pc to my tv, friend brings over his controller, there ya go.

But instead I have to really deceide if I want the pc version for obvious reasons or the console version for splitscreen..

I said 'as far as I know'. I haven't played the Worms games since long before the 360 came out. Polite as ever...
