In memory of couch co-op

I was going to sit down and review Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, but instead I’m going to complain about a distressing current trend in games: lack of couch co-op.

Frankly, if I wasn’t such a Resident Evil fanboy (or needing a copy to write a review), I would have left the game on the shelf there and then. Operation Raccoon City is nothing BUT a multiplayer game, and I’m sure there are many couples who want to pop that disc in their console and take on zombies together. Alas, it’s not going to happen; you have no other choice than to defend Umbrella’s seedy side with remote friends or strangers.

Local MP is still way funner than online, even with headsets it just not the same, I don't play as well, laugh as much nor enjoy the game as much. There's simply something awesome about playing together in on one room that online doesn't seem to convey.

Fully agree, TheFinalEpisode. Also, it's easier to start a game when you're in the same freaking building. Most nights on BF3 I've got friends with router issues that keep dropping in and out...

Quake 2 on the PS One, Goldeneye on the N64 ,Timesplitters FP & Star Wars Battlefront on the PS2 = Best local multiplayer games ever.

Online MP can't touch 2 vs 2 using multitap!

I miss Local Co-Op... Some of us don't feel like purchasing X amount of the same title to play together and its not very fair to make us.

Well borderlands 2 is commin so that should keep you and a buddy busy for along time. Plus its easily one of the best coop games around.

Oh, I didnt know it was offline co-op, thats awesome!

Hoe is couch co-op being missed when there are more games this gen with couch co-op probably compared even to the previous 2 gens combined!?
