The Top Ten Co-op Hack ‘n Slashers of All Time

"The industry has heard the demands of the people! We are entering a new cooperative play renaissance! At least that’s how it seems. All we can hope is that when developers try to woo us with sonnets involving multiplayer scenarios and full co-op campaigns, they look to the best of what the past has to offer. So we’ve decided to help them out." (Baldur's Gate, Castle Crashers, Diablo, GameCube, Gauntlet, Hunter: The Demon's Forged, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Great list. I was ready to yell at you if you didn't put Castle Crashers on there, but you did.

Awesome list!

My top three are..

Baldur's Gate
Champions of Norrath
Gauntlet (newer versions, not Atari)

Co-op hack n' slash are some of the funnest games out there.

Champions of Norrath was one of the best i played with my brothers back in the day.

Just picked up Castle Crashers and like it, even if it makes my arm ache to play. Repetitive stress injuries ftw?

The only one I don't agree with is League of Legends...totally not a hack n slash game...

Nice list. One of my favorites was always Hunter: The Reckoning. Sure, it was a little on the short side, but it was a heck of a lot of fun. Had fun playing single-player; had a total blast playing co-op!

And everyone says HVS has never made a good game.

Given they made mostly terrible shovelware titles.

I freaking love this list! Gauntlet? Check! Dark Alliance Check! Rune: Viking Warlord? Check!

We really need a co-op hack n slash for this gen. I always loved staying up late with my family and friends. Stealing their gold and eating their meat. It was such a blast. Its a prime time for some modern hack n slash.

Incomplete list
The guy that hacked the ps3 and his jailbreak chip...good co-op hack and slash there
DemonStration  +   1716d ago
Great list, reminded me that I really need to check out league of legends
