    I do think Portal 2 was a bit overrated. I'd have put Borderlands 2 (or just the Borderlands series as the Pre-Sequel and some of the expansions were also good) at the top. As far as Diablo III goes, I got way more out of Path of Exile for less money. Diablo III is a lot simpler so it's good if you are playing it with younger family members. PoE is more like Diablo II modernized with a seriously advanced skill tree. I am not sure how Don't Starve Together got on there. :P There are some good titles in that list though. I was a bit surprised at the lack of procedurally generated voxel games, but then again it wasn't meant to be an exhaustive list or anything.

    Check out Rainbow Six 3 (the last real R6 game) it's cheap, runs on anything, and is still a great co-op FPS

    StarCraft 2 has been one of my favorites lately. It's the only RTS game that I know of that has specific co-op missions and commanders. Reminds me of Red Alert 3 and it's co-op only campaign which was super fun, but is difficult to get working now that you have to use 3rd party support to replace gamespy.

    Where's Orc Must Die 2?

    Total Annihilation is missing from this list ??? Shocking.

    World of Tanks ? World of Warships ? War Thunder ? League of Legends ? Did you miss a genre of Online Co-Op Games ?

    Killing Floor 2? The Division?

    Must have been a rule on the age of games checked, because there's no sign of SWAT 3 or 4 on the list. That was true co-op play, & even in the "deathmatch" style games a team was rewarded more for arresting an opponent vs. just killing them (1 point per kill vs. 5 points per arrest). Not to mention the very different "VIP Escort" mission, where the Tangos couldn't kill the VIP before a) arresting him & b) the 2-minute timer reached zero; killing him before that point lost them the match.

    The Arma 3 developers also released a free multiplayer+coop version called Argo which features a slimmed down experienced which can be more suitable for casual gaming. And i repeat: Its free.
