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.

    • 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.
