Co-Op: The bane of my gaming existence!


‎”NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!! WE DO NOT NEED BLOODY CO-OP Can’t anybody play games on their own anymore without wanting someone to hold their hands? For the love of god play on your own and be done with it or go play COD or something.”  -Unknown Irate Gamer

Okay I already know that alot of you will not appreciate this point of view…but the beauty of it is…I DON’T CARE!!

Lets be clear, I’m only referring to games that were not Co-Op to  begin with!!!

I think I’m really the only one who can do without Co-Op…I’m not saying it’s a bad gaming experience but when playing games like GOW, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, and Castlevania for so long from one point of view then have Multiplayer or Co-Op introduced. I’m less than happy. You know what they say “If it ain’t broke…”

Don’t get me wrong, a game starting out with these options aren’t bad, but it’s when they introduce this about 3-4 games in, because the games aren’t good enough on it’s own??? I have no love for online gaming…sorry that’s just me.

My experience is my own. Co-Op isn’t new obviously but even my memory of games with those options irked me. Final Fight, a classic game that I played ’til my thumbs hurt had a Co-Op option and I always found myself hating it. Why? Well waiting for the other player to catch up or get it together was just annoying. Or even playing Sonic, waiting for Tails to stop dying every five minutes so he could actually help me, marred my gaming experience.

Once again…this is just me! I am a very picky gamer, I have specific titles that I wait for and drool over and all that but the pickiness also extends to how I play the games. It’s kind of like how 3D came back in style for movies…at first I thought okay this is cool, and then EVERY MOVIE was all of a sudden 3D! Kind of ruins it for me to be honest.

What are your thoughts? CCU wants to hear from you.
