While I enjoy the heck out of single and competitive multiplayer games, it's hard to match the fun of a well-produced co-op experience in my opinion. There's something particularly engrossing about tackling in-game obstacles with a coordinated effort. Unfortunately, few…

50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. Seriously, I had friends that laughed when I suggested it but once they actually played it in co-op the laughing stopped...

Borderlands was a great game, but the co-op was crap. It didn't even have a roll system for loot. That's just plain terrible.

The best co-op game I've ever played is Resident Evil 5. No other game has even come close.

I absolutely wore Left 4 Dead out before moving to Call of Duty. I tried to get some friends into Forza but that didn't really work.

I guess I'm going to have to be the one to say Super Smash TV then?
HAHA agreed!

I would pick either L4D2, Borderlands, or Diablo. So hard to pick a winner.

Wait a sec....does Minecraft count as Co-op? If so it wins hands down.

I totally LOVE co-op games... but unfortunately I haven't played many as my buds don't always jump on the same games. Left 4 Dead series and Portal 2 are of course great. Diablo 2 was fun stuff.

I have never have had CO-OP experience before, but if I were to give it a shot, I'd go for Battlefield 3, or better MW3.

Lots of love for Resident Evil 5 eh? I played some of the original on the PlayStation but I haven't kept up with the series. I thought about grabbing RE5 a while back and I watched some videos to check it out. I thought the combat looked clunky and potentially frustrating, but I might pick it up after all.

Same here, from the trailers and stuff I've seen it always looked more actiony than scary though, but maybe worth a buy anyways.

L4D2 - have had a lot of fun with that game even though I'm crappy as hell at it. Have had a lot of fun playing that game with other TS members.

Also a big Unreal Tournament fan, but those folks who play it are few and far between and for whatever reason, the multiplayer on Steam doesn't work. Bummer...a great co-op game.

Resident Evil 5 is so far the best co-op experience I've ever had.
Last week, me and my girl finished Diablo III together, it was also great.
Yesterday, I bought Splinter Cell Conviction to my friend, so that we can play the co-op campaign in lan.
 
For PC - Borderlands My Buddy and I put around 120 hours together in the game
Dead Island - Really fun co-op
Diablo 3
Global Agenda
Ghost Recon - Advanced Warfighter 1/2
Nation Red
Transformers - War for Cybertron
Warhammer 40k Space Marine
Killing Floor

And you can't mention co-op without mentioning Halo 1,2,3,ODST, Reach AMAZING CO-OP
And Gears of War 1,2,3
Hunted - Demon Forge
Brink - not really great but entertaining for a little while
