I think the 7th generation officially killed it for the most part. They launched and we're pretty competent online devices, so the console online multiplayer focus grew as well.

The average gamer age has killed Couch Coop. As an adult gamer why waste game time getting that all set up when you can just play games with them online. I get it kiddies love to have their friends over to game but as an adult who has that time anymore.

I still like having the option to have a Halo 3, Smash Bros, and Mario Kart party when I want.... Me and my friends who are 30ish still get together once or twice a month to game it up... Also me and my wife still play split screen coop in any game that we can...

It sux that Nintendo is the only company that cares about that experience .. but I guess time moves on.

Yea, online co-op just isn't the same, it's fun and all but Split Screening with a good friend. Nothing beats it.
