Hey everyone. I’m in search of games I can play with 1 or more friends. After my experience with ‘A Way Out’ I wish there were more co-op games like that. Anyway, I’m hoping to get some recommendations. It doesn’t need to be story-driven, just something that you think is a lot of fun and could provide a decent amount of hours of entertainment.
Co-op games we’ve played:
A way out, Far cry series, Halo MCC, Minecraft and I’m sure there’s more but i can’t remember off the top of my head.
A quick list of games I know are good co-op games, most of which I have unfortunately not been able to try myself yet.
Degrees of Separation
Divinity Original Sin 1+2
Outland - If you already have it, sadly not for sale anymore.
Risk of Rain 1+2
Terraria or Starbound
The Trine series
Warhammer: Vermintide 1+2
Some of these are online or local-only multiplayer:
Dragon Quest Builders 2
Multiplayer in the Steam/PS4 versions is restricted to Online Only; It’s only available for Explorer’s Island, a place where you can build anything from scratch. You’ll have to progress the story to a certain point be able to access it.
A Hat In Time
Ultimate Chicken Horse
River City Ransom: Underground
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed
Orcs Must Die! 2
Dead Rising series
The first game in the series doesn’t have multiplayer.
Left 4 Dead series
Most of the Lego games
ie. Harry Potter, Marvel Super Heroes 1/2, Star Wars (they’re all getting a remake titled The Skywalker Saga, which includes all 9 movies in a single game), etc.
Awesome thanks for the info. I can’t wait for Skywalker saga, I hope it has actual online co-op this time around. Actually now that I’m thinking about it I wonder if I could use radmin to trick the game into thinking its local multiplayer or LAN I guess. If LAN is even an option.
Things I know about (some are Steam remote/local play only)
Cat Quest II
Children of Morta
Crypt of the Necrodancer (recommend local play)
Divinity: Original Sin
Enter the Gungeon
Geometry Wars 3
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Left 4 Dead
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
Overcooked (2 thumbs up from me)
Risk of Rain 2
Serious Sam (if it supports it)
Tales Series (if it supports it)
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Path of Exile (and it’s free)
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
Grand Theft Auto V (just host your own server)
No Man’s Sky
Stardew Valley (at a certain point)
Streets of Rogue
Star Wars Battlefront II (CLASSIC)
World of Warships
World of Tanks
Sea of Thieves
COD: Black Ops (like the first or second one)
For The King
Also have a look at the Co-op tag or designation on steam.
Some games I haven’t seen mentioned:
ibb & obb - short co-op platformer puzzle
We Were Here - f2p 2 player puzzle, requires mic communication
Sniper Elite 2,3,4 - Tactical shooter, snipers, stealth
Tick Tock: A Tale for Two - 2 player puzzle that doesn’t require direct online connection
Resident Evil 5 - as long as you are ok with the controls, this is a fun co-op tactical shooter
