    Borderlands is a given but we are almost through that one. What are some of the other exceptional coop games?


    Recent titles (2003 and newer) preferred.

    Freelancer springs to mind, but older than 2003 I'm sure. just mentioned it cos I think it's exceptional.

    Recently L4D/2 are pretty awesome but wear off quick IMO

    Left 4 Dead and Gears of War aren't my cup of tea. :(

    Freelancer is a great game but unforutunately, it doesn't have coop.

    Serious Sam HD is a maybe...

    I, unfortunately, can't stand Call of Duty.


    Maybe that helps narrow down what I'm looking for...

    Any other ideas?

    Brad: For a LAN party, my absolute favorite is Battlefield 2. For a smaller group, the Rainbow Six: Vegas series is excellent in co-op, but only with realistic difficulty settings.

    I tried Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter out and I don't think that would be appropriate either.

    Kane and Lynch: Deadmen has some potential, as does Supreme Commander.


    On Supreme Commander, does only the hosting CPU take a lot of the burden? Also, is there a dedicated server client I could run on my server?

    All comps get slowed down to the lowest computer. Well thats what it feels like when we play as 1 of them use a AMD 3500+. So we don't go over 250 units( includes buildings too ) each.

    There is no dedi as i know of ( i could be wrong ). You can either set a game up in game or though GPGNET which will allso auto update your game too.

    I've had a issue with a update(s) and so a few of other people i know too. Not looked in to it really i just reinstalled and it updated just fine the 2nd time.

    Sp is well worth playing too.

    I'm looking for PC games...


    The other computer has an Opteron 180 so it would definitely hold Supreme Commander back. It is still worth a shot though. I'm also going to take a look at ARMA II.

    that computer will die with supcom, game eats cpu's and mem for breakfast.

    Swat 4 is alot of fun. and another great unknown game is Men Of War. all missions in it r co-op able.

    I've had a lot of fun playing Borderlands coop with 4 ppl. You do play the storyline though, no skirmishes.

    the Co-Op mode was pretty epic! but unfortunately hardly anyone plays & if there is someone playing then the server usually has a stupidly high ping (100-200+) or the servers full.

    but the first time I played, the dude had a paintball mod on LMAO - we were paintballin teh germanz! its so much fun.

    CoD:MW2 co-op can be pretty good too but it seems so lackluster because you cant run any mods or anything & IMHO MW2 alone can only get you so far before you get bored of it...

    lol, only if he has to many units and details to high. I played it on my 3800 x2 7900GT when it was released and was fine but i guess that depends on what is playable. The reason i stopped playing it was due to ram it eats but believe that has been fixed now.

    It was not a mem leak i was on about. It was some thing to do with how the main .exe ( user address space usage \ large address aware )was limited so when you hit your ram max it would crash and did not matter if you had a pagefile or not. Although i was playing me v's 2 AI with a 1000 each so much fun and sure it slowed down but was playable to me..

    Here's a link and the gmes well worth playing in SP or MP anyways

    ahh ya thats what i ment, i jus considered it a mem leak as it involves memory and slowly slowing down. All the fixes ive seen for this r only temp ones that just extend the amount of time u have until u need to save and restart the game
