What Happened to Offline Co-op?

"I can’t be the only one upset about the fact that offline multiplayer in titles isn’t even an afterthought for most developers now; its simply nonexistent."

Left 4 Dead annoyed me the most with this. Awesome game but you could only get the full experience online, only 2 people allowed on multiplayer.

this is why halo is awesome!!!

really. developers don't think it's a big deal but a lot of people still have real friends

This is in fact one of the major reasons both halo, and killzone back in the day got popular.

Halo had 2 player coop, and 4 player vs each other (plus vehicles)
Killzone had 2 player coop or free for all (etc) with bots, which was just as incredibly fun. :) More enemies to kill, but no vehicles :(

I know, right? Deadreckoning666 said nothing wrong. It's completely true. This is pathetic..

Splitscreen is outdated anyway. Most games just look ridiculous with it.

Some people have REAL friends. I know it`s shocking....but it`s true.

Montoya2874d ago

Ok, I guess someone doesn`t believe people don`t have real friends.

Borderlands is great with the splitscreen on a Big screen.

Fanb0y2874d ago

I disliked the vertical split-screen.

Yet, I played through the entire dam game though that mode. Fun times.

Halo is undoubtedly the king of local co-op. Up to 4 players on one console. and the most important part:
online multiplayer with split screen at the same time.

Totally overlooked feature nowadays.

I'm not big on Halo but this is true Halo is genius when it comes to this feature.

Thrillhouse2874d ago

You just reminded me of the times we called a;; shooters "Shoot 'em ups".

Valay2875d ago

Nintendo's been doing a lot of offline co-op recently. Mario Bros. Wii, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns.

As long as the online trend doesn't crossover to handheld gaming...
