IM PLAYIN asks why the classic split-screen co-op game has died a death, and reminisces about the best games to play co-operatively.
"For me, the PS2 was all about the split-screen co-operative games; very rarely did I play a game without my brother. Games like Dynasty Warriors, Time Crisis, TimeSplitters, WWF, SOCOM, and Unreal Tournament occupied our days and nights whilst growing up. The 360 had some half decent co-op games that I enjoyed playing as well, like Left4Dead, Army of Two, Borderlands, Call of Duty: World at War and Halo 3. But the current-gen consoles seem to have switched split-screen for online, which I find very disappointing. What ever happened to the old fashioned split-screen game?"
