Hello, I need some help choosing a Co-operative board game. Games I own to date are Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Puerto Rico, Power Grid and Lost Cities and I normally play with 2-4 players. So which is the best Co-op game? People have mentioned Shadow Over Camelot, Lord of the Rings (i like the theme)and Arkham Horror, what do you guys think? perhaps there are better ones that I am yet to hear of.

Based on your current collection, I'd go with Lord of the Rings, which is both well-played and well-liked in my group. Since you like the theme, it's doubly good! I also own Arkham Horror, but in my experience, you need a dedicated group of gamers who are into the theme to get much out of it. I can't comment on Shadows over Camelot, since I've never played it. You'll lose a lot of games of LotR, but it's never dull. We haven't lost a game of AH, but I haven't heard any of my friends gush about its greatness.

Vanished Planet also deserves looking into.

My group loves Shadows over Camelot, but it plays best with more (4+) and not so well with less.

People always say games like Arkham Horror and Shadows over Camelot, but they really are just games with people on the same team (but not working the nuts and bolts of the game, i.e. the encounters, cooperatively).

I'd say skip those and look into titles like Descent, Last Night on Earth and anything else based around the Dungeon Crawl paradigm.

Also, keep your eye on Pandemic which is supposed to be available 1Q08.
