1.) Toy Soldiers: Cold War – Curiously addictive game that is good clean fun in co-op mode and versus. We’re talking 80’s-era plastic soldiers, Apache gunships, and John freaking Rambo.
2.) Portal 2 – The co-op element of Portal is simply fantastic!
3.) Dead Island – What all zombie games of the past have forgotten to focus on is the reality that guns are a rarity and stamina is a necessity. Dead Island was rough around the edges, but it’s a great co-op game and you finally get to see some sun.
4.) Battlefield 3 – Still my game of choice since getting it on launch day. ‘Nuff said.
5.) Call of Duty: Rezurrection Map Pack for Black Ops – Zombies on the moon. ‘Nuff said.
6.) Fruit Ninja Kinect – Crazy fruit-chopping entertainment no matter which way you slice it.
7.) Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean – Every Lego game (yes, I said EVERY Lego game) is oodles of co-op fun, and this one is no exception. To play the ever-quirky Captain Jack Sparrow to the impish soundtrack of Pirates magnifies the fun factor to new heights.
8.) Just Dance 3 – Four player dance party game with a swathe of current billboard hits? What’s not to love!
9.) Gears of War 3 – Very refined, very impressive graphics and a game that offers some of the best co-op action around.
10.) Insanely Twisted: Shadow Planet – I haven’t even touched on the single player yet because the four-player Lantern Run in co-op mode has kept me busy for weeks. Can you tell I enjoy co-op? Well, if you do too then grab this breath of fresh air from the slightly overcrowded shooter stable.
