Arma 3 had a pretty fantastic DLC this month (Apex).

It has a large player base and plenty of modes/mods that can be enjoyed while playing solo.
What is the co-op play like? I've read you can play missions with friends. How long are these missions and how many buds can you play with?

There is like 20,000+ user created scenarios in the Steam workshop. Some are short, some are long... there is something there for everyone. The variety is pretty insane.

I don't have a ton of first hand experience with the single-player/co-op scenarios though. I usually stick to the big multiplayer mods - Wasteland, Exile, Breaking Point, King of the Hill, etc.

Definitely wanna get into Arma 3 at some point, just haven't pulled the trigger, so many other games.

A recent discovery of mine is Helldivers - it had a sale on Steam and I heard good things about it (it's from the makers of Magicka) so I gave it a shot. It's a top down co-op alien shooter. It's really fun, not perfect though, the camera acts kind of weird, but it's great with friends. Otherwise I add another vote for Warframe.
