Yeah, online multiplayer is great, but the split screen coop had its own vibe. Playing a game on the same screen adds a whole new level of excitement and competitiveness to the entire game.
Nowadays, online gaming has pretty much completely replaced split-screen co-op. In this article, we bring you the top seven games you can still enjoy in split screen in 2019.

Though not entirely split screen, Shank 2 is an indie game that features a two-player survival mode. This game is a pure hack and slash fun.
