This generation's best co-op games.

Ok, everyone knows that Super Mario Galaxy 2 was a triumph, losing none of its predecessor's inventiveness whilst adding a new twist in the form of co-op, but if we’re entirely truthful, we have to admit to being a little bit underwhelmed. Co-op should genuinely enrich a game, either by allowing you to share the spectacle or by adding an extra dimension to the gameplay or game mechanics. With that in mind, we at Megabits have wracked our brains and assembled our list of the ten best co-op games, the ones that, unlike SMG2, didn’t fall swiftly by the wayside.

What an uncalled for attack at SMG2!

What's more glaring is the lack of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, especially considering it's one of the highest-selling and most-played co-op games in the world.

Little Big Planet was better.It did the 4 player co op/competition first and has 2.7 million user made levels,so I'm still playing it with my 6 year old.It also handles like it was designed with 4 player in mind with better camera and co op areas than Super Mario bros Wii(which I did like by the way).

Well everybody certainly has there own opinions, i personally found LBP boring compared to mario. But i also do not personally like RPG's, i just prefer playing with my reactions and instincts (more of a skill player than a thinking one). So i guess it depends on the person.

I just cannot believe super mario bros. is not on this list lol

Ive had many great nights playing 4 player co op with that game.

... it's the perfect game to ease non-gamers into gaming. My girlfriend isn't much of a gamer, but she really enjoys that game, and I enjoy it alongside with her.

Gears of War 2 was a great game, but IMO Borderlands had the better co-op experience and was pretty much built for co-op gameplay. Good list none the less, I would scrap Lost Planet 2 though.

EDIT: That's kinda odd you mention that because my GF isn't a gamer but she played Borderlands with me, and even my cousins wife hates video games but she loved playing Borderlands lol. I almost past on this game as well, but after watching a few video reviews I said screw it and pre-ordered it. I've spent countless amount of hours on Borderlands and I don't regret it at all, and the Secret Armory of General Knoxx is the best so I think you will enjoy that one.

My wife, not the biggest gamer, has been hooked on Borderlands with me and it's been a blast. Before, she used to only get interested in the old, co-op dungeon crawls like Dark Alliance or Champions of Norrath. I think it was the loot that kept her coming back. Eventually she got into RE5 and Gears of War co-op because I think the story was enough to keep her interested. Now with Borderlands, I'm sure it's just a loot thing again. Not that I'm complaining. We finished our first play thru and just finished the Zombie Island of Dr. Ned last night. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is up next!

I didn't think Borderlands was a co-op game at first, now I'm having an absolute blast. Can't believe I almost missed out on this game.

gears of war? uncharted? rainbow six vegas 1? all better than lost planet

omi25p2075d ago

uncharted coop story and survival is good, depending on if you can get in a game without someone disconnecting
