Default Split Screen/same screen co-op game recommendations needed

Can you guys suggest some decent, split-screen or one screen co-op games. Not split screen competitive.

PS3 only. That's the only system my friend has.

Its for my friend and his wife.

Thanks.

I'll second pixeljunk monsters - me and my girlfriend have a ball playing that one..It's a tower defense/strategy type game and it's not necessarily a graphical powerhouse..But it's fun.

Lumines Supernova (psn game, too) is another strategy type game in the mold of tetris that is fun as hell...1080p, awesome music and pretty addictive. Lumines already has a free 'holiday' add on pack for it..So if they do, by chance, decide to get the game, give them a heads up about the free holiday skin download.

Edit: just noticed you mentioned non-competitive, and I believe lumines is competitive...Resistance 1, and I'm assuming 2 - has 2 player co-op...I hate split screen games so we didn't put much time in it.

Meh, she 'll love it regardless. Lumines has a huge "girlfriend acceptance factor"

And LBP obviously.

Uh... Rock Band 2? That's pretty much the ultimate co-op game these days...

Rock Band 2, of course, but that's rather involved.

Last night I played Calling All Cars!. Excellent party game specifically made for split-screen coop. I would get one; it's under $10.

Well, I guess it depends on what definitions of involved we're talking about. You're right in that you need all that gear, ie guitars, microphone and drums. That's expensive, no getting around that. The gameplay itself is pretty easy to get into unless you're an idiot (ie, me) and try to finish everything on Expert.

Yes, I just meant the expense and complexity of setting up all that stuff.
