It's like co-op is gonna hurt the game just because it there even tho it would have no bearing on your single player experience. More then any thing I annoyed by the single player cult that feels every game that comes out most me single player with no co-op option at all. Even if they dont have to use that mode. Right now it just seem alike alot of you are like " I wanna play games alone, so I don't like co-op so neither should you and no games should have it" Then have the nerve to go tell me to play sports games if I want a co-op fix. I should have to play sports games if i wanna play a game with friends or family.
Its bad that I have to play mmo's if I want some form of co-op enjoyment, I rather play a non mmo for that. But it seems games are being targeted at single player only. With few coming out with a option for co-op thru SP option. I do play single player games it just I want more options when it comes to co-op as I wish more games have a co-op option. As it get lame trying to find a game that a friend and me would play and not one where i would play and he or they wouldn't.

Co-op makes no sense for Bioshock Infinite in the first place since it was never tailored from the ground up to be a co-op experience. There's too much of a narrative going on also and co-op would ruin that. Unless you have a friend that is as passionate about the series or story in general all you're going to have is a bnuch of random so and so's that ruin the whole experience. I like to take my time and appreciate the world, exploring it. Any co-op game I've played which has been with randoms has been an absolutely horrible experience because they just seem to want to gun ahead and finish whatever as quick as possible. As soon as you add in that second human player it becomes competitive in some way and for a narrative experience that's the last thing that you need or want. It ruins it. Period.

I remember playing Co-Op with some people in a few games.... what I hated most was some would just run and gun and then they would SKIP the cinematic parts thus skipping and killing the story for me! I never really got into BIO Shock, but maybe I will... tongue.gif

you must live under a rock there are tons of fun co-op games, in fact the market is saturated with them deftly true for MMO but, that's not that same as co-op. There aren't' to many new AAA single player titles like BioShock coming out . the only two that come to my mind are Metro Last Ligh and BioShock Infinite and Farcry 3.

Was there any multiplayer in the first one? Doesn't seem like a game you'd really go head to head with a bunch of people in.

I was actually looking forward to the multiplayer. Ah well, it sucked anyway.

Every game mode has its place, be it SP, MP, Co-op.

To say one should disappear forever is blind and ignorant, but as i said they have their place.
Ie, single player didn't belong in Battlefield 3, MP didn't belong in ME3, all they did was subtract time and money that could have gone toward making the 'core' game mode bette
Coop is fun, and id love more good coop games in all game genres not just FPS and MMOs, i just don't see how it would work in BS:I, the story doesn't have a place for a second player, now if they had a tag along support character that would change everything (IE Borderlands perfect example)

I think the point is finally there's a dev that isn't 'tacking' on extra hoping to pull and extra couple of sales at the sacrifice of the game but rather putting that extra time back into the actual 'core' game mode, in this case SP
