Split screen is the only way I play coop. I care immensely.

I have a cousin that comes over some, so I guess I kinda care. Games like Castle Crashers where you don't actually split the screen are preferable, but some split screen stuff can be fun too.

I really like split-screen multiplayer. It's not only about nostalgia but like one of the first posters said it's so much better to play with the person next to you rather than online with them! Uhm I like the system link thing or whatever it's called too though, when possible. Because that can work out just the same only with full screen rather than that letterbox peeper thing going on!

TV's are never big enough for split-screen to work well.

If it's co-op, absolutely. Me and the woman play tons of games like Gears, Borderlands, Halo, etc splitscreen. It'd be pretty fucking retarded if we had to buy another X-Box, TV, and copy of every game just to play together.

If Borderlands 2 doesn't have splitscreen I won't even be buying it.

Everytime I see a game that would have no problem including a splitscreen mode, or has included one in the past and excises it just to push people to pay for Xbox Live is inexcusable. At least put in a system link option or something. Why does something like Daytona USA or Virtual-On not have any splitscreen of any kind when there were on the Saturn and Dreamcast releases?

For that matter, more PC games sure could use splitscreen options. If only to allow people to do this:

We've had the technology to take splitscreen to a whole new level. Most likely why we're not seeing any advancements is because of systems like the 360 and PS3 that are well past their prime and trying to force people to pay for online services. (Yuck..)

Nope. I play games alone, or if I do play with someone it's a guy almost a world a way so we play online.

To be clear, I love Couch multiplayer. splitscreen in shooters, though, I could care less.

Yeah, it's the only way I can play with my immediate family, who aren't as good at games. Disappointing when it's not in there.

i realize now that because i have friends that live relatively close to me that its something that i have grown to appreciate. its a great feeling to have split screen games that you and all your friends can play on a friday after work where you can just relax and have fun like when you were younger.
