Playing with friends? These 15 games should be at the top of your list.
Co-op games have been a staple of gaming for decades, whether it’s blasting through Contra or finishing Halo 3 on Legendary. Though more games are beginning to emphasize online co-op to the exclusion of split-screen, they still offer some pretty fun experiences. Let’s take a look at first-person shooters and examine 15 titles with the best online co-op.
Left 4 Dead 2
While Left 4 Dead blazed a trail for co-op shooter titles – especially those with AI directors and hordes of enemies punctuated by special units – Left 4 Dead 2 offered that and more. More weapons, more variety in objective play and arguably tighter map design meshed well with the responsive shooting, expanded melee weapons and new Special Infected. Furthermore, with all the mods available – from character models like Lollipop Chainsaw’s Juliet to maps like the Battle of Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers – there’s near endless replay value here.
