Year in Co-op gaming reviewed

The folks at Co-Optimus have posted  their look back at the year in co-op gaming.  With over 100 co-op games released this year there's certainly a lot to consider.  For me the two big co-op games of the year were Gears of War 2 and Left 4 Dead, two games that John and I blitzed through together at various times.  I've learned a bit about the importance of sticking together (flanking only ocassionally works) and it's always weird to play one of these games by yourself after playing them co-op (John is a much better wingman than the AI Dom. by just a bit).

What were your favorite co-op games and/or co-op experiences?  My personal favorite was from Army of Two.  John and I were pinned down by a pair AI guys in the warehouse level towards the end of the game.  One of the AI guys decided to flush us out with a grenade that hit a low wall in front of him and bounced back killing the both of them.  John and I had to pause the game because we were laughing so hard.  Let us know what you think in the comments.
