Xbox 360 games to play with co op

Friend coming in to town for 4 days, we're looking for games to play that are co op, preferably through system link (Gold access not needed right?), but split-screen is fine too. We both used to game a lot, but not so much anymore the past couple of years, so we're kind of out of the loop on what's out.

We prefer shooter or puzzle games, but we're up for anything (except for sports games).

By the way, I plan on picking up COD Ghost for myself, I know it doesn't have co op for the campaign, but can anyone confirm if it has local multiplayer options? Something about an alien invasion mode, or even bots? What about system link?

Games we have already played:
Army of Two (all of them)
Gears of War (all of them)
COD (all but Ghost)
Halo (all of them)
Portal 2
Diablo 3 (on PC, so not looking to play on xbox)

We'll consider the arcade stuff if there just isn't anything out right now, but I would like to utilize my sound system to the fullest and see pretty graphics first.

Thanks.

    My brother and I had a lot of fun with the first two Gears of War games. I'm not sure how the new ones are, but you can give that a shot.

    The Scott Pilgrim game and Castle Crashers are both really fun beat em ups. I think Streets of Rage 2 is downloadable as well. That's a classic.

    oops, it will probably be helpful to list games we've already played, I updated the first post with that info.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far.

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2 are a lot of fun to play on the couch. It plays similar to Diablo and other isometric RPGs but with super powers and more flexibility in how you play since you always have a team of four. I don't know if it allows for system link but everything takes place on the same screen anyway.

    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is the game I always suggest in threads asking for good co-op games, so I am doing that same thing here. It's on XBLA.

    Bulletstorm is way more fun than it has any right to be.

    Borderlands 1&2 (RPG shooter) and Minecraft (lego survival) both work with split screen and on 2 systems. Dynasty Warrior series (ancient China strategy/rpg) has split screen, not sure if it has 2 systems co-op. Fable 2&3 (fantasy RPG) also have some kind of co-op but I've never tried it, so not sure how it's done

    Castle Crashers is pretty much made for exactly this. Just silly fun.

    Lego Marvel Superheroes should have offline coop on the Xbox (it does on the PC). There are puzzles in it and it's a fun little romp. No need for split screen.

    I'll second Rainbox Six Vegas (2 is newer and a little better graphically). It's a more realistic shooter with a local splitscreen option and a link option. You can do coop terrorist hunts and work together to kill some pretty fun AI terrorists.

    Fear 3 (F3AR) was pretty good in coop. Shooter where the two characters had different abilities.

    I don't know if you or your friend have played the last two, but Dead Space 3 was an excellent Coop game. If you don't care about the story the first two are not needed.

    Iron Bridge if a fun lane defense game that's free if you have Gold right now.

    Ill second Castle Crashers, TR Guardian of Light and the R6 Vegas games.

    I just want to correct this autocorrect mistake and say that you meant Iron Brigade.

    Because Iron Brigade is awesome.

    Crackdown one and two are about the only addition I can make. Iron Brigade and castle crashers are both amazingly fun. Marvel alliance one and two are also great. Borderlands 2 is the better pick up and play over 1. It starts out hilarious and never really lets up. Especially before the end game grind it is amazing.

    Resident Evil 5 is the best coop experience I've ever had! Also Tomb Raider: Guardian of Light has a ton of awesome puzzles and great action, highly recommend that as well. If you're down for something a little goofy, I'd definitely recommend Rayman Legends, it's awesome. Dragon's Crown has coop has well, but I don't know if I'd recommend that as highly.
