"Cooperative play is not anything new to gamers. We played great titles such as Contra, Double Dragon, Gauntlet, Golden Axe, and Gunstar Heroes. If you have not noticed, there seems to be a resurgence of co-op games in the horizon. In earlier generations, you could tell that a game was cooperative just by its presentation. Now developers are treating the feature like an added bonus, making it separate from the main single player experience. Even franchises with a history of being single player are now having co-op in their sequels. Personally, co-op is my favorite feature because a good story is best shared with a friend."
