Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
I'm still waiting for a co-op game that can deliver a consistently satisfying play experience, but I've not kept up with many of the new ones like Gloomhaven so maybe that has already happened.
I've yet to play a legacy game enough to really dig into the "legacy-ness" to determine if it is really a legit mechanic versus a gimmick that could be replaced with a scenario book.

Although I am notorious here for being an Arkham Horror 2nd ed fan, I think that the best co-op game in my collection is probably Space Hulk: Death Angel. It's a very compact and reasonably-priced product that sets up and takes down quickly. The game is easy to learn but always challenging to beat, and it does a nice job of solving the alpha player problem that threatens most co-op games. The base game offers a decent amount of replay value, and the several small expansions add a surprising amount of replay value. The rule book is okay, but careless players often get some important rules wrong at first. Unfortunately, Death Angel has been out of print for years, so the price is less reasonable now.
I could go on for quite a bit with game explanations and such, but it is easier to google and youtube it if you are curious.
