I think my gaming ADD is the most effective shield against gaming addiction (or at least addiction to an individual game) ever designed.
Hmm. I of course will go on record saying playing WoW is a great thing to do with each other. And other MMOs don't seem to cut it.
Unless you are the kind of double-lifed person who enjoys something like Eve, in which case I'd recommend it. I'd just caution you to not go all out with Eve until you know you'll like it after three months of play.
I'd say that most MMOs in general suck in terms of playing with friends. Typically you don't level at the same speed, so invariably you get out of sync in terms of quests, etc. ....
Eve is pretty unforgiving. Unless you keep up with the patch notes you could loose a ship due to overnight mechanic changes. Also when I was playing the races were so unbalanced that if you screwed up in character creation you pretty much had no chance in PvP unless you spent a month or two learning the skills for a different race's ships.
I will say the most fun I had was ganking gold farmers in high security systems. Got a few mails in Chinese cursing me off ^^
In my efforts to build a list of games with co-op gameplay to sample, I'd like to narrow it down a bit. I'm going to post a few "Game 1 v. Game 2" choices below and would appreciate if people familiar with both or all titles in a group could recommend the best game to start with.
For the PC games, it might be worth mentioning that my wife and I both run Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
- Neverwinter Nights v. Neverwinter Nights 2
- Baldur's Gate v. Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn
- Champtions of Norrath v. Champions: Return to Arms
If you have a Balance Board, there's a mini-game in Raving Rabbids TV Party where you can steer with your butt.May I ask a question related to this thread here? I want to share my gaming with my other half too, but probably am even more restricted in what my better half plays. I may be coming into some money and am thinking of buying a Wii for the exercise programs it has. Are there non shooting, coop programs that can be played with restricted movement in them?
I'd heard of it, but haven't played it yet. I'll take another look at it.
I have a copy, but if Trine 2 is anything like Trine 1, I'm going to prefer keyboard/mouse controls to gamepad controls and that makes for an awkward co-op setup. The emphasis on platforming may also deter my wife as she's not a fan of platformers (which saddens me, since I really enjoyed New Super Mario Bros. Wii).I can't believe no one has mentioned Trine 2.
