Why so few splitscreen games?

2 replies 177 views Edited Oct 21, 2012

I've recently gone looking for split-screen games around the internet & found so few that are really good; it seems like this is dying in games these days. The only reason I ever started buying consoles was for the fun of split-screen but now its 100% focus is on internet multiplayer when total multiplayer should only be left to the PC's.

Co-Optimus maintains a list of Splitscreen and Local Co-Op games if that's what you are looking for.

Online play has gotten a lot better, and from what I've read it apparently takes up less resources than splitting the screen in half, and having two players on screen simultaneously.
