It’s Valentine’s Day! Granted, to some people, that doesn’t really mean anything, as there are a lot of single gamers out there. But this article is to help out those that actually are gaming couples, looking for a great way to spend the day together without having to deal with hostility or having to share loot the right way or whatever. It’s all about the games that bring people together, and these suggestions are very ideal for your Valentine’s Day experience.
Besides, it’s more fun to buy a video game for the person you love rather than flowers and candy, riiiiiight?
Sackboy: A Big Adventure (PlayStation 5)
While Sackboy deviates from the usual gameplay style we’ve come to expect from the LittleBigPlanet games, it more than makes up for it with fun platforming antics. And what’s more, you don’t have to play it by yourself. The game fully supports local couch co-op, so you and your loved one can work together to collect orbs, defeat enemies and basically work your way from beginning to end. And it works on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, so it doesn’t matter which platform you own!
Star Wars: Squadrons (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
There are a lot of great Star Wars games on the market, but how many let you team up with
your beloved for some awesome flight missions? Only one that we can think of at the moment
– Squadrons. This wildly entertaining blast-a-thon lets you work together on a team, either as
Rebels or members of the Empire, as you dominate the galaxy. This one’s a terrific game when
it comes to team-building, and, hey, who knows, maybe it does just take two to control the fate
of the Star Wars universe.
Overcooked! 2 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch)
With so many co-op supported games on the market, you might wonder, “Where’s a good
place to start?” Well, with Team 17’s classic Overcooked! 2, of course. In this game, you’ll
scramble through various conditions as a team while you build the perfect meals for those
waiting for them. It’s simple and yet challenging, and really a lot of fun. And it’s something
that’s perfect if you’re trying to get hungry for a gourmet dinner. Or Olive Garden, whatever
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (Nintendo Switch)
After a slight delay, the latest gem from Nintendo has arrived for the Switch – and it does not disappoint. Super Mario 3D World makes the transition from the Wii U to the new console without breaking a sweat, offering all sorts of co-op supported thrills as you dress up in cat suits and save the world from Bowser. And for those seeking a greater sense of difficulty, the Bowser’s Fury add-on is just what you need to bring your hearts together. And who doesn’t love Mario? Um, we sure do.
Streets of Rage 4 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC)
Finally, the couple that stays together slays together, right? At least, when it comes to pummeling opponents and trying to take back the city. In Streets of Rage 4, you can do just that, with a handful of fighters to choose from and exciting visuals and sound that really bring the classic series back to life. Plus it’s great to team up together and take down adversaries with a certain sense of rhythm. Just…try not to hit your loved one too hard, okay? Remember, they can hit you as well.
