Although not technically co-op, I had a blast playing point and click adventure games with my sister while we were growing up. -- Plus a fun one I didn't see on many lists was Sonic 2 : my sister played as Tails who could never really die so she felt no pressure but could still join in the fun, plus working together to get the chaos emeralds was a must. Thanks again Sis!

I`ve always loved single player games but Couch co-op was main reason i bought
my first console (otherwise i would have stuck to my PC)
What a disappointment when i realized how very little titles came on the PS3
and then trend will probably continue on the PS4.
Do they have idea how many couples would actually buy nice couch games if they
were properly marketed and available from the online stores...

@gwaf: The PS4 is a lot better than the PS3 for co-op because of the indie market. Sadly, most Triple-A games have abandoned the idea of playing with the people next to you (like even Halo doesn't have splitscreen anymore), but its still there for smaller developers.

Nintendo is the way to go for couch co-op though. I just got my first Wii recently, and now its what me and my girlfriend play whenever she's over.

The video is for modern co-op. Back in the day games had to be co-op to make them more fun and the fact that they were so challenging. They were challenging because they were like 5 hours long, but took 100hrs to master to reach the end. You may not make it through a Contra level, but as long as your friend does you can pick up at the next level.

@C0SMIC_DUCK: Yup, had a great two weeks last summer with MH3U, me on my 3DSXL and a buddy on his Wii-U on his couch. We both only bought those platforms for Monster Hunter co-op. I guess technically they aren't covered by this though since we played on two different consoles but the couch aspect was defenitely there and the main motivation. Communicating effectively, being able to point to stuff on the big screen and high fiving after defeating a big monster. :)

@trollkind@C0SMIC_DUCK: Exactly! Those were the day’s haha. Fair point but I wish they gave it honourable mention at least.

I'm looking forward to the New 3DSXL and MHF4U next month totally agree with you it’s the only reason I will buy a Nintendo product, MH is by far one of my favourite Co-op games! (Not slagging Nintendo btw).

Out of personal curiosity were the graphics on his Wii U better than yours on the 3DSXL or not?

@C0SMIC_DUCK@trollkind: I'd say marginally but the small screens on the handheld forgive a lot so in the end I'd say it looks better on the XL because the low fidelity graphics don't span such a big space. It looks like a HD version of a last gen game on the Wii-U but Monster Hunter was never exactly on the cutting edge graphicswise anyway. I wish they would have stuck with Sony, MH on the Vita with all the extra features and proper multiplayer infrastructure, mmmmmh.

As it looks now, I may actually pick up a new 3DS XL with MH4 preinstalled if the special version reaches us in the EU, nothing on amazon.co.uk yet. If my wallet can stomach the ridiculousness of paying that money to essentially play one game in style. Although I'm undecided if my big hands wouldn't even miss the bulky Circlepad Pro attachment. We'll see.

I found Gears 3 to be better than the 2nd game, especially the campaign.

@D4rkey: It's great to play with friends due to the tactical depth and synergy you can set up but it's not a couch co-op game.

Great list! Love to see Lara Croft get some recognition, I thought it was a brilliant mix of action and puzzles that really made you feel like part of a team to overcome them.

I might throw in an honorable mentions for Splosion Man, and for one of my favorites, Earth Defense Force, for the sheer chaos and comedy...plus, with two people, the frame rate drops that much more, and provides quite an entertaining experience.

I remember laughing at the horrendous decision developers made in Resident Evil 5 to have it so someone had to start a single player game, then someone else pressed start. Seriously, fire that guy.
