There are tons of great co-op games coming out this year, but the Co-Optimus staff has waded through them all and picked the top 5 must play co-op titles for the rest of 2008.
I think that wrong come on resistance 2 won that one with 8 player coop online with its own story
Quality > Quantity.
I agree Jenzo, Resistance 2 is quality at it's best.
2nd. Resistance 2
R2 is quality.
1. Rock Band 2 2. Resistance 2 3. Left4Dead 4. Gears of War 2 5. Fable 2 Maybe Resistance and Left4Dead can float around together, but that's my order
I got a strange list, I was one of the 10 people who enjoyed Army of Two, I like games that offer Split screen co-op, so that I can beat them with my little brother, I think only 3 of these have that feature: 1. Gears 2 2. R2 3. L4D 4. COD:[email protected] 5. LBP
We'll see how this list turns out once Resistance 2 is released.
for all of these titles. Rock Band 2 would have to be the best co-op game out of those for me. Rock Band 2 is the only one out of those that I can play drunk with my friends and laugh hysterically most of the time:P I am getting more and more excited about L4D though...
Gears of war coop better than R2 Research before you do that stupid Top 5, R2 have 8 coop campaign is the first game to bring that feature. More respect people.
I think its because the 8 player co-op has not been fully revealed yet.The Gears 2 co-op is exactly like the original so no real surprise there.
Exactly! VIVA LA RESISTANCE!
1.Gears of War 2 2.Fable 2 3.Left4Dead 4.Infinitive Undiscovery <-is there co-op? 5.Guitar Hero World Tour Great time to be a gamer.
My top five are 1:Resistance 2 2:Little big planet 3:Rock band 2 4:Saints row 2 5:Call of duty:world at war,is there even co op? See what i did there?? yeaah you know.
5. Gears Of War 2 4. Resistance 2 3. Guitar Hero World Tour 2. Left 4 Dead 1. Little Big Planet Im lil bit confused that Little Big Planet is just a worthy mention, i mean, Little Big Planet isnt just Play Create Share its also a great Co-Op experiance in a giant open Network. btw <3 Zombie Shooter + Co-Op Btw. See what i did here? yeeaaah. i just mixed ur two fanboyism's togheter to create me, the God of Gaming.

1.) Resistance 2 2.) Little Big Planet 3.) Hmmm 4.) Meh 5.) Whatever
AHAHAHAA LMFAO!!!!!. honestly i loled. your list of top 5 ps3 games is just priceless. LOL
i'll give you a bubble for making me laugh thats was histerical
I might be wrong but I belive there are MUCH more ppl willing to pay to play an awsome MMoRPG(EQ,WoW,etc) intead to pay or some times even play for free a FPS online game. PPL ALWAYS wanted more multi-co-op VS damn death matches on every single game that has an option to play online. I'm glad to see that the devs know this now,that a co-op game gets much higher chances to sell more. Nintendo knew about this tatic since the Snes and now they are using two diff things to attract even more ppl :new amazing controls and more ocasional games. I really hope that not for PS3/360 but for future generation of games that they ALWAYS when possible add a real good co-op mode on games. Please,no more 1,000 FPS like Halo that has a "bad/short" campaign and then they sdd multiplayer mode= Death matches.Super original,uh.
I want a fleshed out co-op game with well...co-op! Army of Two was a step in the right direction (too short) and here's hoping Resistance 2 will deliver and droves. The thought of having 7 other players playing together is tantalizing.
Co-op > deathmatch
Boy would that make games like R2 or GeoW2 that much more enjoyable. I don't mind the small screens. I played at Halo LAN parties with screens as small as 13" and I dealt the pain just fine. *sigh*, damn this gen where online takes priority over hardware flexibility....Hell I wouldn't mind if the graphics got dumbed down for the sake of 4-player split-screen co-op because this gen is severely lacking it.
I also miss the multiplayer on the same screen also. One of the huge reasons why I loved the N64 so much is because of all the splitscreen games. That is why I think LBP should be on that list, 4 players can play on the same screen...awesome.
completely biased article! Where's LBP? And how the **** are gonna say that 2 player Co-Op through the same story as campaign(GeoW2) is better than an 8 player co-op separate story(R2) 5 player horde mode? I think that's called Rainbow Six Terrorist Hunt(which got old really fast) In GeoW 1 I would be with a group of my friends and want to play online co-co but we would have to split up cus it was only 2 player. The list should be- 1-R2 2-L4D 3 RB 2 4 GeoW 2 5 LBP
"In GeoW 1 I would be with a group of my friends and want to play online co-co but we would have to split up cus it was only 2 player." Dang, everytime I logon, there's at least 3 to 7 (average) of my friends online. Chances are they will be playing all together a game I want to play. And sure enough, if it's a game with only 2 players co-op, you can kiss this idea goodbye... And that's without planning anything. Give me a 4 or 8 players coop, and sure enough, there will be those: Game X Wednesday evening bashem coop party... And since this is a top co-op games, more players mean higher rating...
I kind of get what your saying but and the more people you get in the more of story ruins and people are in different spots, spoiling parts, talking during cuts(but all this can be avoided if you have 8 friends at same spot interested in the story witch is hard). Cliffy b could of had more coop but he thinks it dosnt add to coop but lower it so hes just sticking with 2 coop and i think four should of been done with cole and baird but im fine with me and my 4 buddies just spliting it up becuase tops i ever play coop is with four people witch are my best friends but thats why i also love resistance becuase we wont have to seperate but i think gears is a diffrent game so you cant argue the coop is better when its your oppinion Both will have great coop !! just different
1.) L4D 2.) Fable 2 3.) Resistance 2 4.) Gears 2 5.) LBP
3 amazing AAA 360 exclusives versus ONE rehashed, generic shooter on PS3. Poor droids :(
I'm glad Left 4 Dead was number one, on another list. I'm looking more forward to that than Gears 2.
LBP needs to be on that list......
The problem isn't that LBP isn't a great looking game, but how many online co-op, 1st/3rd person shooter fanatics are foaming at the mouth waiting to play LBP? I think the author used historical reference and there is none for a game like LBP. It's a day one purchase for me based on innovation, quality, and the kids. But I don't know how long or how many total hours I'll spend playing it. I'm sure the kids won't be able to get enough of it though.
Really, we still don't know what kind of GAME is there in LBP. Just a concept.
Poor you, you have no bubbles.
Left 4 Dead is #1? eh, not a shock, it's certainly the number 1 co-op game on my list this year
L4D AAA? Why because valve made it?
After seeing L4D at PAX, I'm tempted to put it at the top of my list. It moves at a frenetic pace, is just creepy enough to make single-system co-op a good time with the lights dim and the surround sound cranked, and is an almost universally loved gametype anymore. The original Gears of War set the bar pretty high for co-op play in my mind, and I expect the second to do the same. I didn't care much for the first Resistance, but will give the second one its due if it's worth playing. I think Little Big Planet will fill Rockband's spot for me. I only barely got into Guitar Hero III, and have never had the time or interest in getting involved with Guitar Hero. I'm honestly more interested in Guitar Hero World Tour. Despite it failing to meet epectations, Fable still holds a special place in my gaming heart. Being able to drop in on my friends games of Fable 2 will make playing in that universe even better.
lol, id say who ever wrote this was playing the xbox and was smoking weed while watching a sd video of rfom on gametrailers.com
