Depends on the game.  Another "cooperative game" style is multiplayer
cooperative video games -- from Mario Brothers to Smash TV and
beyond.  For me, at least, the real question is whether it feels like
a game -- I don't like Lord of the Rings much, but it definately feels
like one (and I like Arkham Horror much more, and it feels like
nothing if not a game).
