PCG: Co-op? Sling your hook.

When I was last in the Gamer office, they caught me in a - Dwarf Fortress Mode on - fey mood. Guiding me towards a keyboard, it ended in another rant where I continue the last seven-days theme of asking the entire internet outside, as I think they spilt my pint. It's about how the current wave of co-op games isn't exactly the unvarnished joy which its been painted at. I end up saying things like...

There's nothing wrong with co-op, per se. The problem is when it spreads cancerously in a great singleplayer game, twisting it, perverting it, sickening it, preparing it for death. That's one thing I won't co-operate with.

But on the way there, there's something that may pass for an argument. You tell me.
