Welcome to the eighth edition of Sofa Sharers! We’ve got something different lined up this week: an ode to the game that influenced so very many of the split-screen epics we’ve been discussing and looking back on over the past seven editions of Sofa Sharers. Split-screen dates back around 20 years, but there were plenty of games before that time which encouraged people to play together on the same couch. In fact, many of the original video games relied on local co-op, although the term certainly hadn’t been coined by that point in time. There’s one game that began it all however: Pong. Oh, and you didn’t think we’d have a Sofa Sharers without some split-screen memories did you? Well Andrew’s got some amusing memories of the legendary Goldeneye to share and more. Let’s get rolling.
