    I find myself looking for a good co-op game for MacMan and I. Ideally something of a shooter, that we can play together (not looking for online with public players).

    We have COD MW, but of course the only mode it does is PvP and 1 on 1 is dull, dull , dull.

    So other than Borderlands2 who can suggest some games that we can play together (LAN) and has some longevity to it?

    Macman prefers the shooters (akin to Doom, Quake, COD etc). I like these too, but really want something like a cod single player campaign, that we can play together as a team.

    Any help here would be great people.

    (I have read that Black Ops supports co-op campaign, but I am a bit unsure as to Win vrs Mac as I have it for Windows and steam doesn't let me have the mac version for nowt, trying to keep the pennies in check). - also if it only does 'zombies' in co-op I fear its long term appeal will fade quickly.

    Thankee sai xx

    A Coop, story-based FPS that's LAN-based, and does NOT center on zombies?

    Is that basically it? LOL You don't ask for much.

    My mind is blanking on an answer, so I hope the brain trust has some resolutions.

    You might find the Portal 2 Co-op entertaining. Team Fortress II and Alien Swarm are also good ones to play. The RAGE multiplayer, despite not being a true co-op, is also good fun.

    The Left 4 Dead Series, simply outstanding coop despite the zombies. Tons of replay value. :)

    As suggested, Portal 2 has co-op campaign.
    It's not that long, but there are tons of custom campaigns too.
    I've played around 25 hours of Portal 2 co-op

    Agreed, and I was definitely thinking about L4D2 when I read the OP's question. The coop elements are really perfectly balanced. You cannot win alone.

    Seriously, you just described Serious Sam 3: BFE.
    Full co-op campaign.
    Competitive co-op campaign mode (Beast Hunt).
    Cross-platform multiplayer.
    Good developer support.
    Available on Steam.

    If you're into shoot-em ups of the arcade variety, Jamestown.

    Well left4dead 2 just popped up on steams sale for less than £4 so its the winner for now. I will keep an eye on borderlands 2 tho.




    ... Sigh life was much simpler back 'in the day' - best multiplayer game we had undoubtedly: Dynablaster (or bomberman to some).

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist is one of the best co-op games I've played. Third-person shooter/stealth genre. Two players only for the co-op aspect of it.

    Try Trine 1 & 2. You can play them singleplayer, but you can tell they were built from the ground up to be played with 2 or 3 friends right beside you.
