    The Girlfriend and I are going half and half on an xbox 360 instead of getting each other Christmas gifts this year. I always gamed on a computer and never payed attention to console games. Can anyone recommend some fun two player games? We know that we want Mortal Kombat and one of our friends will lend her FO:NV but I would also like to play something coop.

    Borderlands II
    Saints Row III

    And that's all that comes to mind.

    You could try looking at Roosterteeth. They tend to play console Co-op games for their Let's Plays, and that might give you an idea.

    Borderland II sounds like a good idea. What's Roosterteeth?

    They are a Texas based company that started to make Machinima (Red vs Blue) and then they branched out into other things, mostly video game based.

    Here's their Youtube Channel

    Also get Vanquish, Bayonetta and Persona 4 arena.

    A silly as it may sound I highly recommend LEGO titles (Star Wars or LOTR). The co-op is pretty much the way to play those games. If you have to get one, get yourself LEGO SW: Old Trilogy. It's very entertaining.

    EDIT: Just to name a few more you might like: Left 4 Dead 2, Kane & Lynch, Worms 2, Crash: Mind over Mutant.

    If you like fighting games:

    SFIII: Third Strike
    SFIV: AE 2012

    If you like beat 'em ups:
    Castle Crashers
    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

    Shooters:
    Borderlands II
    Left 4 Dead II
    Portal II

    The LEGO games are good for some simple platforming fun.

    Forza 3 is a good racing game if you enjoy those.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I did not know Portal was coop.

    I'm actually not a fan of Star Wars and Street Fighter. But I might look into some of the other Lego games, like Batman.

    Those Lego games seem to be really suiting, my friend and his girl are addicted to those, even though he normally plays "serious" games.

    Lego games are fun. Indiana Jones, Star Wars, etc. I also play those with my girlfriend, and it was good practice for her on a console, as she used to only pc/mac game.

    Halo is one of your best options here. All games have split screen.

    Gears of War does too.

    I highly recommend you check out Trials HD
