PostSubject: Why aren't all games co-op?   Sun Jan 06, 2008 8:41 pm

When buying a new game, my brother and I always check if its co-op. Sadly, many good games lack this option and it kills them. But then there are games like The Warriors and (hopefully, it looks awesome) Army of Two that are focused on a Co-op style. I don't know why, but now with the ability to play online, is replacing the great ritual of pulling an all-nighter with a buddy at your house to beat a newly released game is withering away into nothing.....

I'm not bagging on Live because its cool and a great concept. But why can't Co-op and Live Co-exist? It sucks because a lot of the Co-op options are online only and that doesn't help at all when you've got friends at your house instead of at theirs......

I've never understood y this is happening and all games aren't automatically Co-op....... Sad

That is exactly my thoughts...I mean most of the time we are at someones house but instead of running through boards together (like Halo) we can't. One has to watch until they die and hand over the controller. Co-op is a must in my book.
Halo had the right idea the whole time.

dont forget split-screen vs. modes too! i mean, like in prey, for example: that game has some awesome multiplayer, but no split screen! It's the same thing with The Darkness or Shadowrun! Shadowrun's a great example here, actually. The game has no single player, so its all multiplayer (what else would it be? lol), but you can only play on xbox live! if you're going to have a game that's multiplayer only, at least add split screen for up to 4 people (one xbox). A lot of the games also have it where you can only play xbox live or system link only. One of the most dissappointing ones was Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. You could play Co-op, but not vs.

It should be automatic to put in Co-op and Versus. Both of those are fun....I think Halo was a perfect example of what I would like 2 see in all games.

My brother and I spent countless hours beating the game on every difficulty (legendary like 3 times, I'm still proud of the Library board lol...... Cool.....)

But when we had an extra two or three people who wanted 2 play. Versus mode was available and we would play that 4 countless more hours........

EVERY game should follow this example. Idc if Live wasn't around then! It was the ideal game!!!!!!!!

I wanted to get the demo of Left 4 Dead, but now it's not showing up on the downloads list ever since I got the new xbox experience.

Yeah I just read online that they took it off when the game was released. Not the best marketing idea I've ever heard of. Oh well, I'll just rent it or borrow it from a friend.

co-op is fun, but i must say It's hard to complete a game co-op since you and the other person don't always play at the same time. most people find it more convenient to play by themselves. Online is a different story.
