    "It was hard to pull off a sequel with reusing what made the original too much. That is exactly what Valve was able to pull off. There is more emphasis on the story and character development this time around. The single player was great but the real star of the show was the co-op mode which transitions smoothly from the main campaign. One of the best co-op games around. Just fo play it."

    "It has been more than six years since the release of Portal 2 and now it is 2018 but i am still playing this game. This is one of the best co-op games i've played out there as through this you need to rely on your partners or else you won't be able to progress on your game. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Steam controls the largest share in the market for PC gaming? It was the digital distribution platform created by Valve Corporation. According to Bloomberg, Steam owned 75% of the market in 2013. PCGamesN then reported that Steam reaped a record $4.3billion in sales in 2017. That is almost 18% of the $32.3billion sales made by the industry that year. That record-smashing number is not an outlier. Steam was making numbers like this since 2014 when it recorded $1.5 billion in sales. This is according to reports by SuperData, a market research team. This included more than $400million from their three best co-op games then. At the time, it was Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO), and Team Fortress 2. To this day, co-op games are still popular with online gamers.

Steam also helps independent developers and designers through the use of Programming Interfaces. This helps people use Steam to get profits from their games and designs. Because of its success, Valve decided to expand Steam and launched a stream of other products. These were Steam Workshop, Steam Greenlight, and Steam Music. Steam Hardware and SteamOS were being sold starting 2015. Next, came Steam Machines, which are pre-built gaming computers. These devices have near flawless connectivity with the Steam game distribution platform. In 2016, Steam brought out SteamVR, followed by Steam Direct in 2017.

    Written on October 31, 2017
    "Cuphead is an incredible game that will surely make players feel nostalgic for a different era of gaming and of media in general, and its co-op features are pretty well executed as well. It seems to offer local co-op, and it might offer an online version at some point as well, though I can see lag perhaps being an issue here. If you have the setup for it, and have a friend with similar tastes in games (considering, perhaps, this game is not for everyone), Cuphead is just as enjoyable in co-op mode."

    Ralph Snyder
    Written on April 6, 2017
    "With the steam summer sale going on I wanted to look for new games that my friends and I could play together that would be quick and fun and I ran into Broforce. The game may have a funny sounding name, but it's a bit shooter that provides a ton of action and allows you to play with four friends at once. This lets us easily play in decent sized groups and all play the game together at the same time without feeling like we will be leaving anyone out on all the fun. Sure I would like to find a game that we could all play at once in the same group, but that's not really realistic. If you like retro games and you like the old bit graphics you will really like this game."

    "This is a good introduction to the game "Rise of Nations: Extended Edition. It contains information about the basic game as well as including the differences in the "extended" edition. It also will tell you all the system requirements for the game. "

    "I was looking for the best co-op games to play on Steam, and this is not it. It's an rts, but it's got a history theme, and that is just not my bag. I think this one is pretty lame."

    "Steel Ocean is a dying game. It was once a great game and it was even free to play, but it's best to just not even start this one. Constant "server full" messages when trying to play and it's been going on for a while now, this one is on it's way out."

    "I have been really bored lately. None of my games on my phone were very appealing anymore. Nothing new in the store caught my eye either. But after seeing Steel Ocean, it has been very hard to call myself bored. Rule the seas!"

    "I love it because it does not require computer skills and is suitable for different ages except children. It works with even the most diverse group, although, dark sense of humor and witty vocabulary is recommended."

    "I found this co-op game on Steam to be underwhelming at best. The gameplay is awkward which makes it kind of a frag to play. Also, the missions are just too long and confusing to really enjoy engaging in. There were also a few bugs / glitches along the way. All in all, this is one I won't be playing again..."

    "Men of War is an exciting realistic strategy game. I like the attention to historical details. The scenes are very good and rich in content. You can have multiple players or single one and several levels that vary in complexity. This is game for fighting awesome battles."

    "It's easy to see why Men of War has over 1000 Very Positive reviews - it's one of the best POV war games on Steam. Play single or multiple player in battles that span North Africa and Europe in this WW2 epic."
