Co-Op Once Again Dominates a Top 20 List

Major Nelson has revealed some data for Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live in terms of Unique Users and titles purchased for their games.  

On the retail front, 13 of the top 20 games for 2009 had some form of co-op in it.  Granted, two of those are the same game, Resident Evil 5, but one is the Japanese version called BioHazzard.  The Call of Duty franchise did particularly well with 3 of the top 5 games coming from that franchise.  Of course World at War and Modern Warfare 2 are the ones on our radar thanks to co-op.

In terms of purchases, XBLA didn't fair as well with only 5 of the 20 most purchased games last year having some form of co-op.  Halo 2 is still dominating the Xbox 1 charts, though the game only has local co-op.  Finally on the Games for Windows side of the fence, GTA IV dominated with it's small co-op mode, but #2 is the great Dawn of War 2 which we found most excellent.  Also listed are Indie games, which we currently don't track - but probably should.  

All in all a good year for co-op gamers on Microsoft's platforms.
