Joey Pockett : wish i could watch this video in person instead of online

Jimbo McGringus : My best memories in videogames were knifing my friends in 4 player local multiplayer BO1, while sitting on an obscenely large beanbag, and eating McDonald's chicken nuggets... God I miss the good ole' days.

Augustus Bohn : The worst part of losing local multiplayer _now_ is that screens are big enough four people can have the equivalent of a full SD screen in a quarter of an HD screen, and with wireless controllers you don't have to huddle close to the console or buy any adapters.

Citrus : "I can't feed my friends a Digorno on DIscord" 100% why I like LAN sessions

masterxlr : You know what i find odd about the lack of splitscreen these days? These days, basically everyone has at the very least a 32'-45' TV on their living room that they use to play their consoles, which makes the screen size for each player reasonable enough to use (unlike on the ps1-N64 era when we had fucking 17' screens)...SO WHY THE HELL DO WE NOT HAVE LOCAL MULTI? IT'S NOT EVEN THAT HARD TO IMPLEMENT, GOD DAMN IT

Jack Marsho : "Broadband? I barely know her" brilliant

Alex George : Couch multiplayer will always be the one. You need that visualization of your buddy's utter despair at the realisation that the blue shell coming for him *will* cost him the win.

Rexcor Jungmir : “I can’t feed my friends a DiGiorno on Discord.” That sums it up for me. So many nights spent staying up late to kick each other’s asses in Smash Bros. or Halo, or anything else we had lying around with four controllers to spare, some that we brought over ourselves, and me or one of our friends serving up a hot meal that we split. Sometimes we’d go out to a local Wawa or restaurant that still runs late at night for whatever we’re craving.... but damn. I miss those nights. It’s certainly the best feeling ever. Online only can never compare. And that’s why the phrase speaks to me.

Axel Morgaine : Aah, the old days when you tried and sneak up on your friends to kill them in Halo while invisible, only to get slaughtered because they know your position from split-screen cheating, then shouting anything at them in anger and hitting them with a pillow. Now it's been replaces with online confusion of not knowing where anyone is, and shouting anything at your screen. *sigh*

Zero P : Never clicked out of PornHub so fast.

Camay Waikiki Morton : Every time you say "gamer girls" it always makes my mind subconsciously think that theyres hella girls here. As a 20yo female I felt very alone looking at that demographics chart. Reality hit. It hit hard.

Evan Curtin : Nothing will beat playing smash bruthas on the couch with the boys.

Sammi's TM : Once there was 4 controllers, they were called "The one who came with the console which only the owner of it could use" then "the second player bootleg controller", the "controller of a friend that he brought there to play mario kart" and finally, "the controller from a friend who needed an adapter because his controller was for another console" but now they're all divided... waiting for an hero to bring them together again...

Alison Something : This guys got a point.

SC 2187 : I remember when it didn’t cost you 600 dollars to get 4 people to play together Holy crapples my apples and frickles my nipples, that’s a lot of likes

Jacuzzi Banzai : Lego Star Wars; when you had beef you took it out on Act 6 of Episode 3.

Lawrence Gist : Kirby Air Ride, I remember playing hide and seek with my sister in city trial mode. Mario Party, I remember destroying my dad's dreams of victory by mere seconds on Goomba Boardwalk. Kirby Return to Dream Land, I remember turning to stone while throwing my friends and family at Magolor. Wii Sports; Baseball, I remember seeing the look on my sister's face whenever I used the B button to throw the ball too low and not telling her. Wii Sports Resort, plane dogfighting with my family. Wii Sports Resort; Fencing, I remember us all laughing at how terrible we were at swordplay. Mario Kart Double Dash, the game who's kart share mechanic helped me bond with my dad after his stroke. Good times.

AliTHEgrunt : 3 words: Halo CE, LAN, Friends. Those where the good old days

BennyC023 : To this day I still have the boys over for some pizza and mario party and god damn its fun

grog renaghan : This is 100% one of my favourite video formats on this godforsaken website

Chrisjb1983 : Couch co op was fun. Ps2. Fondest memories of that. 👍

TheeAdeptBranch : It funny how it has moved to PC because with Emulation PC has more splitscreen games than console. And most of your old Exclusives too.(and in 4k)

dildomeg : Become the better version of yourself - don't buy season passes

Katelynn Michelle : Red Baron is better.

Kaixero : Hey buddy :3 Just checked out mark's video on Ico and design by subtraction, and noticed a comment from about two years ago - one from a young(er) Jakey just starting out, asking about what mic to buy. I gotta say, man, it's great seeing your channel grow and seeing you getting to do what makes you move and groove. I'm sure you've got a lot of whirling worries, like how to grow your channel, get your voice out while trying to figure out what kind of content you can really get behind and all that, but I gotta say this: Keep doing what you do, fam, because I appreciate you. You doing what you want and love to do makes me, hell, it makes a lot of us happy I'm sure. So godspeed, and stay gold, pony boy. We'll be here for you.

sugarl0af : CRTs don’t have input delay

Tame : I like the time splitters future perfect in the backround

Sam Looney : At least Nintendo is AMAZING at keeping this alive!

Owen Balzer : Another thing Nintendo does better

wd : I've been a gamer all my life and the best part is having a twin brother, A TWIN BROTHER! We're 19 and still live with each other paying games together, we even make bets when playing competitively. How do I do this in the current "online" generation.

Steven Collado : Nothing like calling little Timmy a sack of donuts in person, ey Timmy

The Redeemer : One of my last couch coop experiences was with Halo 5. He brought his Xbox, game and his side-TV to my apartment and we sat right next to each other and played it. He's a year older than me and we grew up playing the Halo games coop. Story was garbage and completely misleading (that's another story) but playing it was a lot of fun.

BrickThunder101 : "broadband? I hardly know her" fantastic

deadvodka : This video is paid for and sponsored by CoD Season pass revenues.

Scarso : This channel = Art

NIGHTMARE-NIGHTMARE NIGHTMARE-NIGHTMARE : SCREENWATCHER!!

MLG TURTLE : Yeah, I remember those days when I would go to my neighbors to play MW3 with out my mom's permission ano play it with my other friend's as well and always how I did go after school to play some NHL with my friend it was fun back then. And how we would go play the lego starwars over to another friend's house. I remember so many times playing PS2 or PS3 or even WII it was fun and yes I miss those times. But nowdays we still have about 5-10 Lan partys and have a group of 5-15 people. There is just something special playing games with friends.

Alex Jenkins : You are one of YouTube's best. You feel like a real person when you talk about games. It's so real and passionate. We're in a YouTube dark age where people will give up their souls for just a bit of them sweet dollars. But you remain original and fun. Great work, keep it up

Kane VVinning : If only something like fortnite, forza or gta had couch multiplayer

a ten year old that is obsessed with the game : mario kart 64 baby mario dlc out now

NeoRocket64 : bomberman is better with local multiplayer and it always better with local multiplayer. good thing konami didnt make new bomberman r online only

Ethan Hudson : I miss couch multiplayer a lot but when games (usually indies) only have couch multiplayer it’s pretty annoying

GEhotpants101 : "Hey boyfriend, we should play a game together since we live together and have the entire afternoon off." "We only have 1 PS4." "OH"

Mike : You seen that new Super Mario Party, it's got couch co-op

brokenphasar : I spent three hours playing both the original mario kart wii and mario party nine with my friend

me ann intellectual : Well idk i still playing a LOT in split screen in also the new consoles

Ghoulman Cruelman : I haven’t watched the video yet but I already know it’s gonna make me a lil sad

Theiwillsurvive Guy : What shoes are you wearing in this video? I want them

Money 1217 : Playing split-screen requires another person to be in my immediate vicinity and actual friends.

voom41 : You my friend. Look like you would absolutely love D&D
