Most of the shootering I do on the PC these days is with friends on a LAN. Since we have a wide range of skill levels, our games of choice tend to be cooperative fare, like Payday: the Heist (the recent Wolfpack DLC is really good), The Darkness II, or Modern Warfare 2. As sleek, accessible, and energetic as Team Fortress 2 is, it never really fit the bill as a game for a small group of guys, some of whom are more FPS challenged than others.
All that changes tomorrow with Team Fortress’ co-op Mann vs. Machine mode. It looks like it’s time to finally reinstall.
