This game would be infinitely better with simple co-op.

The problem with Skyrim co-op is its a Bethesda game... (don't get me wrong I love their products) but they have enough trouble with bugs and glitches with just single player. God imagine all the additional bugs and problems they would most likely add with the multiplayer. All I can see is a glitch ridden mess that would make New Vegas look like a polished example of game stability.
Personally I like the idea of co-op, and I also understand that many of the people who post simple reasons why it wouldn't work didn't think about those reasons.
I would think it would be implemented as an invite system - you're the host, and you invite your friend to join your game. You can't randomly pop in to someone's game.
(either that or splitscreen)
The host is the Last Dragonborn, your buddy doesn't hafta be.
The game starts new and is marked as a co-op file, thus can only be played with your friend.
Real time inventory.
Host can pause, only the host can accept main quests, though buddy can tag along.
..y'know, anyone ever play Baldur's Gate in multiplayer? Something like that.
I'm fine with them focusing down on making the Single Player the best they can.
However, arguments that co-op can NOT work have not been thought out, as the above can attest to.
I understand that Skyrim won't have co-op, and I'm okay with that.
It's a neat idea, however.
It's funny how people piss and moan when someone says that they want Co op in the game.

as im sure its been said a million times but its the time/effort/resources being taken away from the singleplayer experience is what most of us "trolls" have an issue with
but for the record i do like the idea of having a second player control a follower
PPPPLAASSUMA posted...If there were co op, this wouldn't be the game it is today and would have turned out very differently. They can't just chuck co op into it as it is now either. So when people say they want or there should have been MP, they don't realize it but they are asking for a completely different game.

I'd like to play skyrim with my friends. It'd be fun. Everyone else here that says otherwise is just a lifeless NERD with a very small dick.
Since the size of one's penis doesnt affect gaming at all... I wonder what made you go there....
Also I think you really really insulted any female players...
Co-op would be fun if they did it right.

It might work on PC.
360 doensn't have the ability to render that much for two people, you'd have to be very close together all the time and there would be many loading screens.
Even if it were possible I couldn't do it. Skyrim just is not that kind of game for me. I'd be very annoyed by objects and people being manipulated by another player.
coop would be nice.
