I think the problem with COOP games is balance. You would almost have to make to completely different games. A game designed for single player would be to easy with COOP and vice versa.

I definitely cant see a Doom3 as a Coop. Its too cramped you'd just be getting in each others way.

Don't forget about System Shock 2. That's a very enjoyable game in coop, although with 3 or 4 people the scare factor is lessened dramatically. However, it's great going through the game with a friend, and definatly worth checking out. Sadly coop play does seem centered on consoles, even an old space shooter on the 32x called Shadow Squadron supported coop (granted, it was more of a "one person drives while the other shoots" type of coop, but have you EVER seen coop in a space shooter before?).

Oh, and I think Red Alert 2 had some coop missions in it, though they did seem more like regular skirmish missions except with 2 people rather than 1. But at least they were designed to be played by multiple people.

One person holds the flashlight, the other person shoots...seems to work for me

Well my first vote is is Serious Sam,

However Hack and Slash games are also fun Co-Op, like Dungeon Seige to name one, and Diablo of course.

And on the RPG side, Neverwinter Nights : )

Superb co-op mode in the new add on for Hidden & Dangerous 2, it's called "Sabre Squadron" & it's awsome!

Hehe that sounds just like Phantasy star online, me and a friend played that on his game cube alot this summer but I got tierd of the game rather quick ...

I loved playing Dungeon Siege on the LAN with my girlfriend in a sorta coop mode. Changes the game/quests but you still group and fight together.

I tried Sacred doing same thing but didn't enjoy the game play.

I supposed NWN is same type deal, I need to try that game again. I initially was turned off to it and traded it back in a week after buying it.

Honestly, has no one here played sven coop? It's worth reinstalling Half Life for IMO. There are some maps that really bring coop to a whole new level. Not only is there more enemys than a single person could take out on there own but objectives that require more than one person to complete. For example there is a tram leading to the next part of the level but one person needs to stay behind to start it. Yeah I know thats a crappy example but you get the idea.

I'll assume this is something you would like to see. ? Cause it has no co-op.

A CoD co-op mod would be brilliant thou. Serious Sam both FE and SE had brilliant co-op, and as I have said before, the deletion of co-op can be the making or breaking of a game. Halo is a lovely example. Here we have a quality game on Xbox, and on PC it sucks, not because of the poor conversion or crappy graphics you understand, but because of the fact it has no co-op play. Doom 3 looses oh so many points in this department as well, and tbh there is no where near enough games that have the option to co-op on which is a real damm shame.
