Top 5 Couch Co Op Video Games!

5. Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2
OK, you may be surprised at this entry, as you know that i despise the Call Of Duty franchise for it's evil community and lack of innovation, but MW2 was actually one of my favorite games of 2009, mainly because of it's Spec Ops missions that i would spend countless hours playing with my friends and my dad. I couldn't give a monkeys about the multiplayer, but when it came to Spec Ops i was all in. MW2 actually had two of my favorite missions from video games: Big Brother being where one guy is a helicopter gunner and another is on the ground trying to get to the extraction point, and the other being Homeland Security, where you used claymores and miniguns to fend of waves of Ultranationalists.

4. Halo 3: ODST
Co Op campaigns are my favorite thing in videogames, and Halo 3: ODST had a great one. Sure, the characters and storyline were pretty bad, but there were countless missions I enjoyed with friends where we went tearing down the New Mombasa Highway in a Warthog, while another guy guarded us from behind with his Scorpion. Oops, I forgot to mention the amazing Firefight mode! The main reason I loved it is because it didn't confine you to one area, like COD Zombies, but instead it let you roam free, having nothing to guard but your own life. It was truly a Survival mode done right.

3. Borderlands 2
LOOTY SHOOTY BANG BANGing with a friend is enough to get Borderlands 2 on this list, but there's so much more you can do! Since you've both got different abilities, it makes the game so much more open, with so many more options on how you can take people on in combat. The fact that the story is still great, and the characters funny as hell, make this the ultimate Co Op campaign for anyone who usually plays by themselves.

2. Castle Crashers
Lets just get this out of the way: Castle Crashers is the funniest game I've ever played. The bosses are so wonderfully designed, the enemies are just so random, and you are put in such weird scenarios that it just makes you go hysterical. The gameplay, still, is damn fun, with you and up to 3 other friends helping each other to get to the princesses, then fighting each other to the death, just to see who gets them! This isn't just some generic fighting game, though, as you can use many special abilties, get new weapons and bombs, use PB&J sandwiches that essentially turn you into the definition of steroids, and little pets that help you out!

1. Star Wars Battlefront 2!
The co op campaign of Star Wars Battlefront 2 was the poop, and it still is. The feeling of being with your friend in an AT AT is good enough, but add that to the fact that you can also play as overpowered characters like Anakin Skywalker and Jango Fett make it ten times more amazing. The diversity of the vehicles and maps, and the challenging but fun objectives, make this the ultimate Co Op game. Sure, it's old, but it's my favorite Class Based Shooter, and it should be yours, too!
