I was thinking of starting a thread on the same topic :)

There doesn't seem to be too many co-op PC games out there. Some games like Far Cry & Half Life 2 have mods that let you play the storyline in co-op. Im downloading one now, will let you know if it works.

Theres also a game called Left 4 Dead (based on the HL2 engine) which supports up to four players in story mode. Its supposed to be due out early 2007.

Going to do a bit more digging but i am surprised that so few PC games have co-op.

Coop is very rare theese days... Really sad since it's by far my favourite way of multiplayer. I'd look into the mods already mentioned atleast, and serious sam.

Coop games? How about Chicken Run? :lol:

As for co-op, I don't really regard games like BF as Co-op games. They are more multiplayer structured games in which you can play on the same side. Co-op to me means a single player campaign that more than one person can participate in.

Nearly all the D&D games of recent years: Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, Icewind Dale 1 and 2 (although in these the entire game would pause when one person entered a conversation). Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2 both have great co-op. System Shock 2 was originally a single player only game, but a LAN co-op patch was later released that made the game much easier to play.

Also, as mentioned Sven was cool. It gets a little laggy in the in-game cutscenes, but playing the original campaign Co-op is pretty fun.

Avoid run-on sentences they are hard to read. Don't use no double negatives. Use the semicolon properly, always use it where it is appropriate; and never where it isn't. Reserve the apostrophe for it's proper use and omit it when its not needed. No sentence fragments. Avoid commas, that are unnecessary. Eschew dialect, irregardless. And don't start a sentence with a conjunction. Hyphenate between sy-llables and avoid un-necessary hyphens. Write all adverbial forms correct. Don't use contractions in formal writing. Writing carefully, dangling participles must be avoided. It is incumbent on us to avoid archaisms. Steer clear of incorrect forms of verbs that have snuck in the language. Never, ever use repetitive redundancies. If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times, resist hyperbole. Also, avoid awkward or affected alliteration. Don't string too many prepositional phrases together unless you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. "Avoid overuse of 'quotation "marks."'"By Shop's Sig reads:
Ha ha! Ya, and speak gooder ingamelish while your at it! :lol: :P

The best coop i've played is in Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory's online Coop missions... They're much like the single player missions, but have some added challenges and multiple play modes, and they have the same success rating system that the single player has so you are constantly trying to do better!

If playing through the single player campaign in co-op mode is your thing and I'd have to say its my preference as well,
then I'd modify my list to the following:

Rainbow Six Vegas (system requirements pretty hardcore 4 players)
First to Fight: Close Combat (4 players)
Joint Ops
Ghost Recon Adv Warfighter (needs lotsa patching)

However I stand by Swat 4 as a viable co-op game,  you have to load up maps on server individually and theres no overiding storyline but with the addition of the SSF mod or similar it makes for a very entertaining tactical shooter. (especially with the maximum 10 players). :D

unfortunately, besides mods, you wont find great coop experiences on the pc. the console sheep still hold the awesome coop games.

I totally agree, we need more coop games!! Games that i have played in coop: Half-life 2: Obsidian conflict - Its pretty good coop mod nice maps and some new things. Doom 3: Last man standing - Its a great coop mod, you can play the doom 3 in coop and classic doom in coop. Rainbow six: Vega - : Pretty good coop mode, you basicly make your character and then fight single player missions with friends. Serious Sam: Been a long time since i tested it but i remember the coop was great! :) Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - The coop mode was awesome! Operation Flashpoint: Really cool coop mode in that game, especially when you made the map your self. Ghost recon: Coop was awesome! And i have heard its possible to play halo in coop is that right?

FEAR has a coop mod called Warfare.  I downloaded it a while back but all the servers were locked, so I never tried it and I dont play fear anymore.  Its probably decent though.

Brothers in Arms : EIB had a really nice coop mode. The bad thing about it is that it isn't story mode and there is only 5 missions (another 5 if you play as germans too) but I had a lot of fun with it, esp the sniper level, I played as sniper with a noob on the ground so I could save his ass :) haha anyways just an option.
