A look back at one of my T3 lists: Co-op

OK, a couple of years ago, I made a list of games that I reckoned would go well with co-op. The full list and reasons can be found here.
I just was looking at it again, and I realised that of the 10, 4 of them have had sequels and/or remakes that have included this game mode.
First off, we have my #10 pick, which was Halo: Combat Evolved, which was added due to the issues with the 360's backwards compatibility. Now, we have Halo: CE Anniversary Edition. Huh.
#9 - #7 we can ignore, as these titles didn't see any new installments in the meantime.
#6 was Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, and from I understand co-op was in the sequel, in one form or another. Never tried it, though, so I can't comment on it.
#5 was Deus Ex, and while Human Revolution had a lot going for it, co-op was not one of them.
#4 was Resident Evil 4, and its sequel, 5, had some pretty kickass co-op play. Pity it was kind of necessary, given the somewhat peculiar ineptitude of the AI.
#3 was Far Cry. Well, no co-op action in that sequel.
#2 was Dead Rising. And again, Capcom delivers on the co-op play in the sequel, and the reimagining of the sequel, proving that zombie slaying is best done in pairs.
Finally, my first pick was Devil May Cry 3. Well, no co-op in 4. Maybe in DmC...
It should also be noted that the comments suggested Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as a viable co-op game, and oh hey look it's Spec Ops mode in CoD:MW2.
