Video games with cooperative gameplay

I’ve been looking for a list of games that offer cooperative gameplay in order to find some games that my wife and I can play together.  Co-op games are games where multiple players (most often, two) can work and play together as teammates.  I wasn’t satisfied with what I was finding with a web search, but a quick search of Wikipedia pointed me to the article on Cooperative gameplay.  Within the article there is a sample of video games with Co-op mode, which links to the category of Computer and video games featuring cooperative gameplay.  In the category one will find a fairly extensive list of games.  Each article for each game features a synopsis, the platform that the game can be played on, and other information that may help in deciding which games to choose.  Anyone have a favorite two-player game that is fun for gamers and non-gamers alike?

  1. I’ve been looking for the same thing for my girlfriend and I and my search led me here.

    We’ve been playing Myst Online: URU, but it took us a bit of time just figuring out how to actually play together. Unfortunately that, coupled with long load times on worlds, is making it more frustrating than enjoyable.

    1. Thanks, Stef. I’ve been meaning to write a blog post pointing folks to Co-optimus. It really is one of the best sites out there for co-op gamers. Thanks for reminding me of this site.
