Oh I guess I missed that in the L4D games on the console. Couch coop is always a good thing. Too bad it's such a dying mode :(
My thoughts exactly. If I want to play coop with someone I want them to be within arms reach of me so I can hit them when they do something stupid.
But really though. The rise of online gaming only reinforces the notion of gamers being in a basement all by themselves but now they have headsets (expensive headsets dammit!) To communicate to others in the outside world with. I get video games are a digital realm but I appreciate the human element of gaming as well.
There was nothing in the world like 4 people playing Super Smash Brothers in the same room growing up. Or even Halo marathons with your friends on weekends in the same room for team matches.
I miss that stuff. I'm not a fan of all this online gaming stuff. I know there is a huge market for it obviously but it doesn't appeal to me at all.
