Army of Two
Although the Army of Two series gets a lot of flak, it's actually a blast to play with a friend. The game offers up an aggro mechanic like you'd see in an MMORPG, allowing one player to hold the attention of enemies while the other moves to flank them. In the sequel, Army of Two: The 40th Day, co-op combat maneuvers are added. While it's great to play in co-op, the single-player can mostly be avoided thanks to a substandard partner AI.
