Unofficial list of Local Co-op (Couch Co-op) & Local Multiplayer PC Games
Update: I added about 50 new games to the website on 11/16/2012. Enjoy!
I decided to throw together a separate website where I'll maintain this list from here on out (today was my day off and I had nothing better to do).
The URL is http://www.PCcouchCOOP.com
You'll notice that you can sort based on things like release date and Metacritic score. And you can use the little search function to do things like search for keywords (e.g., LEGO) or to only show games with a metascore above 70, for example.
There are also links to the Metascore page and the Steam page for each game (when they're available).
Anyway, you'll figure it out.
My wife and I are always looking for new local coop & multiplayer games, so if you find anymore let me know and I'll add them to the site.
Hope you find it useful!
My wife and I are always looking for good local coop or local multiplayer games that we can play together on our living room HTPC. Steam has a list of games that fall into this category, but it is far from complete. Anyway, for those of you that are interested, I've compiled a more comprehensive list of local coop/multiplayer games (games which allow either 2 players to play simultaneously on the same screen, or have a split screen mode).
The first few are from the Steam Local Coop page I mentioned previously. The rest are others that I've come across.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.® 2
DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
Magic: The Gathering
Kane and Lynch: Dead Men™
Lego Harry Potter
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
LEGO® Indiana Jones™: The Original Adventures
LEGO® Indiana Jones™ 2: The Adventure Continues
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs™
You don't know Jack
Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 (yes, I know it's a hack, but it works)
Trine (of course, as mentioned by others. This is one of the best local coop games out there).
The Undergarden (Superb new local coop game! My wife and I absolutely love playing this game together).
Shatter (This needs to be on the Steam coop list...great fun with 2 controllers).
Terminator Salvation (I know this game didn't receive great reviews, but it's actually a lot of fun in split screen mode)
Watchmen: The End is Nigh (Another one that didn't get great reviews, but is a great beat-em-up in split screen)
Watchmen: The End is Nigh 2 (Don't actually own it yet, but apparently this has split screen as well)
Virtual Tennis 2009 (Not really a local coop; perhaps a "local VS" would be a more appropriate moniker. Play tennis against your buddy or significant other...like Pong with good graphics. Super fun)
Street Fighter IV (Again, more of a "local VS" game, but let's not split hairs. I would actually love to see more PC games where you can play AGAINST someone on the same PC. It goes without saying, with two 360 controllers, it's a lot of fun to beat on your friends in the same room, on the same PC...the way video games were meant to be played!).
Shrek Forever After (Don't actually own it, and not sure if I'd admit it if I did. Tempted to purchase though just because of local coop).
Dungeon Defenders (Coming Soon to an HTPC near you).
Serious SAM (the old ones) (I don't actually own any of these, but I know the older ones had 4 player split screen...too bad the new ones don't)
Overlord II (Just bought it and randomly discovered it had a split screen mode).
Magnetis (Just bought this one as well. It has a split screen "VS" mode that we've played a few times...good stuff!)
Flight Control HD (Technically, not a local coop game...but if you have 2 input devices...in our case 2 gyration motion remotes, you can guide the little airplanes to safety together...it's hilarious when you're both struggling to save different planes).
Shadowgrounds & Shadowgrounds Survivor (purchased survivor, but haven't got local coop to work yet).
Bionic Commando: Rearmed
Star Wars Clone Wars: Republic Heroes
Blue Toad Murder Files™: The Mysteries of Little Riddle
Now for some racing games that have split screen mode:
Crash Time II
TOCA Race Driver 3
Split/Second (Ok, not on Steam, don't actually own it, but supposed to be good)
Sonic and SEGA All STAR Racing
Unreal Tournament 3 has a split screen hack, like l4d (haven't used it myself).
BlazBlue Calamity Trigger - 2 player vs (only available on Games for Windows Live in the US)
Worms Reloaded- up to 4 players, you take turns making moves.
Trackmania - local vs, but not at the same time; you take turns trying to beat each other's score. tracks are tiny, though, so there's not much waiting around.
Gumboy Tournament - never played it, not sure what it's like
Gamersgate has a lot of small/indie/import titles, some of which have coop etc.:
Acceleration of SUGURI
A few harder to find titles:
Sega Rally Revo: 2 player racing split screen
X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse (I think...)
Guilty Gear & Melty Blood series (fighting games, only released in japan but you can find guilty gear at least on amazon)
Dynasty Warriors 4 and 6 (again, imports afaik)
And I'm pretty sure some free indie games have co-op as well, like..
Streets of Rage Remake
Super Mario War
and Super Smash Land
BUTTON (Brutally Unfair Tactics Totally OK Now)
If you know of any others, please feel free to add to the list!

Helpful list, been looking for local co-op games recently and learned something...
...Developers need to realize that it's not only console users that want split screen co-op........

oh what a helpful list.
i like playing coop with my brothers.
i wish there were more coop games for the PC. I don't know why pc developers seem to remove this feature.
