heh you sure she wants to play some gory shooter? there are a ton of co-op mods for most of the hits out today(hl2, farcry) hmm but the only really only co-op game i play is diablo. instaed of shooters i would stick to easier games, i dont know if they have but theyve released so many friggin expansions for the sims i wouldnt be able to tell, maybe theres a co-op in there somewhere girls usually love the sims(from my experience(over shooters)). Good Luck my friend
Is she into sports? If so, every sport sim woth it's salt has multi-player. My ex was a footie fan so we used to play Fifa and Pro-Evo both coop (against the computer) and competitively when we needed to decide who was going to wash up...
I've found RTS games are fun to start with. Something like Starcraft, and ease her in with you and her vs one computer, then when she gets better two computers. Once you're good at working as a team, play against three, or even four computer teams against you.
BTW MxM that sounds like a good one. I was thinking along those lines too. Maybe even have her play a gunner on BF2.
LOL..I am 35..married with a kid..I am just busting your balls..although I cant understand why you want to play video games with your wife/girl when there are so many more "fun" things to do with them..I can see a 12 year old asking that question..but not anybody over 16! By 16 you should have figured out what games you should be playing! LOL
Well I'm 37 and happily married, but unless you're taking Levitra or that little blue friend, you're going to have to take a break or two! And just what do you do, sleep? Maybe, but why not game then sleep...
Alright..fair enough. Then can I suggest "Star Wars Battlefront II". Its a shooter but has a very different feel to it than most. One because you switch to third person view. This is kind of fun and a nice change of pace from traditional FPS. Second, star wars environment and characters have been done very well. You can also play in space with all the Star Wars space ships. I am not a huge star wars fan but this game is a ton of fun..no real gore which she might like. She can also play as Princess Leia.
Okay, that was a little uncalled for I admit but after being labeled a "pansy man"..I felt an chauvanist insult was in order..hahaha. "Most" women I know don't like "blood and gore" even in a video game..so what I was saying was..if she doesnt like that ("blood and gore"), some guys probably dont like it also although I have never met one thankfully, then maybe Star Wars Battlefront II is a good game.

From personal experience I managed to get my girlfriend to play LOL with me for a period of time, you can do bot matches and you can usually sell the game by showing them Teemo or another cute character. The character art is pretty cool and there are some pretty fun skins for the characters. Just carry her and give her kills and she will feel compelled to keep playing, I've noticed a lot of women will abandon learning a game with a fairly steep learning curve if they arent doing as good if not better than their partner at the get go. so if you're good enough at the game, carry her through, she'll slowly pick it up. it's like teaching a baby bird how to fly haha.
I'm a girl, well, woman, and my husband and I game alot. We had trouble finding co-op games initially but I've played some pretty sweet games in any genre, I recommend trying them all.
Trine 1 and 2
Little Big Planet 1 and 2
Call of Duty (Zombie levels are fun and theres no pressure of playing online)
Metal Slug 3
Fable 3 (even has a female character she can dress up and shop for, if that"s her thing)
