Being a lone wolf is cool. But much like wearing sunglasses and leather jackets, there’s a time and a place for it. Sometimes, it’s much nicer just to play games with some chums. Even terrible games can suddenly become playable when you’ve got a wingman by your side.
That brings us to our Topic of the Week: what are your best co-op moments? Stories of betrayal, teaming up to overcome adversity – we want them all. So let us know in the comments.
Oh, and don’t forget to check our list of the best PC co-op games.
As always, I’ll get the ball rolling.
Magicka has put several of my friendships on life support. I tend to ignore my fellow wizards and focus solely on destroying my enemies. If they get in the way, then they pay the price, getting doused in flaming magic and pierced by death rays.
That’s what led to the Wizard Conflict of 2012. Enough was enough, my chums decided. They turned on me, and I became public enemy number one. I was the focus of all their anger now, and the rest of the game saw me being chased by my one-time allies as well as our monstrous foes.
A fair price for being a bit of a bastard, really.
Anyway, enough of me rambling on. What are your best co-op moments?
