Dead Island & the Death of Offline Co-op

With the release of Dead Island's 'Game of the Year' edition, the issue with the game's lack of offline co-op game modes, despite being advertised on the box, has been brought up once again, along with the issue of the decline in offline multiplayer modes in new games. (Dead Island, Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition, Industry, Xbox 360)

No offline co-op in games like this and i wont buy them. I love a good co-op game, Gears, Resistance 3, RE5, Black Ops zombie mode, MW2 spec ops are some of my fav games because of this. I still love sp the most but co-op rocks.

I bought dead island for offline co-op, i felt like a cheap whore after finding out it was online only

Some of these games that have online co-op online probably can't run on these consoles. They would probably be too demanding to render two different characters on one screen.

I find it lame when they don't add local co-op. Playing games co-op with your buddies is fun. I had good times playing SSBB.

Portal 2 and Borderlands 2 say hi.
