    "Portal 2 is a classic. I think everyone who has steam has played it at one time or another. It's always fun to play puzzle games with friends, and it does create some interesting memories. For example, me and my friend Sheldon were playing Portal 2, and he messed up one of my portals so I punched him in the face. Ok, not really, but I wanted to since we had to start over again (it was a hard level). It's a very well-written game, and it certainly provides a lot of interesting ways to accomplish certain goals.

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

Split-screen refers to a film or video technique in which the frame is divided into discrete non-overlapping images. It is used to define the technique in making films and television programs in which two different pieces of film are shown at the same time. When applied on a computer screen, it displays two different things in separate parts of the screen.

DID YOU KNOW?

The future doesn’t look too promising for split-screen video games. Are people giving up on split-screen video games forever? Back then, people used to huddle around a 20-40-inch square TV to play video games. Split-screen classics such as Goldeneye or Perfect Dark on the N64. If you played on Xbox, Halo: Combat Evolved featured a 4-player split-screen mechanic. It’s funny how split-screen games were some of the best and most popular games back in the day. But now, split-screen is dying. Take Overwatch for example. You would think that a cartoony, team-based shooter that’s perfect for a split-screen co-op game on console would have the feature, right? Well, it doesn’t. Yeah, you could sell the argument that games are more graphically demanding in today’s era. It sacrifices resolution and framerate, both of equal importance. But, don’t lose hope yet. Thanks to the Wii U with titles such as Smash Bros. and Mario Kart, there’s hope left. Both games allow multiplayer and both have split-screen. Same goes for Star Wars Battlefront which was a success. If these games can incorporate this almost foreign mechanic in today’s era, then other titles can do it too. Take the best games with split-screen on Steam as examples. Incredible video games deserve incredible player experiences. Split-screen must live.

    "I don't care for split screen games and Rocket League (for PS4) is one of those kind of games. The problem I have with the game is I am to busy watching the split screens to actually pay close attention to my moves and strategies. I lost every time I split. There is an option not to split and that is the way I play from my very first goal I love the game in a single screen. I am not sure how this game would solve your Steam problem as the platform is PS4. "

    "LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a really fun game. It's probably not the VERY best Lego game ever, but it's certainly up there with the best of them. True, there's been like a million games, and they all play similarly to one another, so I might've been bored if I'd binged a bunch of them before playing this one, but the last Lego game I played was LEGO Batman 3 on PlayStation Vita, so this game felt like a HUGE upgrade in comparison. And I thought that game was really good. It probably won't take my top spot for favorite Lego game (I think that would have to go to LEGO Star Wars III), but I had a heck of a lot of fun anyway. And it IS a split-screen game, so you can play it with a friend, and go through the entire game together. Trust me, it's a lot more fun that way, and it's fun even when you're by yourself!"
