Why Games Should not be Centered Around Coop


Going all the way back to the days of Super Mario Brothers, games have always been more fun to play when you have a good friend, or not so good if you're losing, with you on the couch to share the experience. Now looking at gaming in the present day it's clear that this game type has still not lost its appeal, as games continually take advantage of the friendly functionality.

I have really fond memories of Gears of War's co op, hopefully they have 4 player coop in the sequel.

I like the inclusion of co-op as an added feature to a game, but I really don't like it as the focus. My wife only plays certain games, and there's no one else around who does any gaming, so local co-op is tough. Also, those who aren't on high-speed connections can't really do the online co-op games, so a good sized chunk of the gaming world misses out on these style of games.

When I was younger I used to love co-op. Nowadays I rather much have an awesome storyline single player game. Give me more games like Uncharted please.
