Nothing says modern romance like teaming up together to break out of jail, blast alien armies and explore the Mushroom Kingdom together. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d take a look at the best couch co-op games to enjoy with your friends or that special someone!

10. Gang Beasts (Xbox One / PS4)

An absolute masterpiece of multiplayer mayhem, Gang Beasts puts players in control of colourful pugnacious thugs as you kick, punch and throw your enemies off rooftops, into oncoming traffic, and into incinerators. Diverse, dynamic maps make for a ridiculously fun and mindless gaming experience that truly is the only game of its kind, and the winning co-op mode pits you against waves of ruthless beasts. Great pick-up-and-play fun.

9. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (Xbox One / PS4)

Combining Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel along with heaps of DLC, this bundle’s acclaimed shooters are packed with content including campaign add-ons, playable character packs, combat arenas and many more. With the entire games playable in thrilling and addictive co-op, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection delivers hours of over-the-top, explosive fun. How can you say no to that?

8. Rayman Legends (Xbox One / PS4 / Nintendo Switch)

This fabulous platformer is nothing short of beautiful. With gorgeous visuals, wonderful gameplay and endless charm, Rayman Legends is a nostalgic experience bursting with innovative ideas and secrets hidden in every level. Without a doubt one of the finest multiplayer gaming experiences in general, the co-op mode allows you to share the beautiful experience with your partner and embark on a true adventure together. 

7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)

The king of the kart racers, nothing comes close to Mario Kart on the Switch. With the near-perfect balance between pick-up-and-playability and challenge, MK8D truly does cater for everyone. Whether entertaining your friends or schooling your loved one on Rainbow Road, you’ll find a satisfying experience no matter what you’re looking for.

6. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)

Looking to take your partner somewhere nice for Valentine’s Day? I hear the Mushroom Kingdom is pretty nice this time of year! New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe offers good old-fashioned platformer fun in the typically beautiful Mario worlds, bursting with colour and charm. As you simultaneously hop and bop your way across the game, you will travel back in time to your childhood as you reunite with the joys of Mario multiplayer madness. Delightful.

5. Unravel Two (Xbox One / PS4 / Nintendo Switch)

This visually gorgeous and innovative sequel is significantly more challenging than the first game, meaning the newly introduced co-operative mode is essential. As you work together to solve puzzles and manipulate the world around you, Unravel Two transports players into a stunningly realised platformer that harks back to the glory days of the genre, and earns a place as one of the most beautiful co-op experiences of recent years.

4. Super Mario Party (Nintendo Switch)

When it comes to multiplayer gaming, you can’t really go wrong with a Mario Party title. Super Mario Party on the Nintendo Switch is one of the best yet and boasts a really fun co-op River Survival Mode where players must work together to navigate a river while playing unique minigames to add time to the clock. Super, colourful and charming fun that will entertain gamers from all backgrounds and skill levels.

3. Halo: The Master Chief Collection (Xbox One)

You could spend Valentine’s Day watching The Notebook, or you could lay waste to hordes of Covenant scum on the planet of Halo. The Master Chief Collection gathers the first four games in the iconic shooter franchise and boasts some of the finest co-op gameplay you’ll find – there’s nothing more thrilling than getting behind the wheel of a Warthog while your partner fires the on-board turret at waves of alien bastards.

2. A Way Out (Xbox One / PS4)

One of the most unique and innovative co-op titles in modern gaming, A Way Out puts two players in the roles of a pair of mismatched convicts as you work together to escape prison and evade capture. Engrossing and cinematic, this is like an interactive TV series that you can binge with your partner full of twists, turns and unforgettable gameplay. Will you both survive this thrilling adventure? That’s up to you.

1. Overcooked 2 (Xbox One / PS4 / Nintendo Switch)

The most romantic way for gamers to spend Valentine’s Day is in the manic Overcooked kitchen, scrambling to prepare and cook orders in absurd restaurants. Overcooked is a game that requires cooperation and teamwork, so prepare to test your relationship to its very limits as you bark orders at one another while you race to feed masses of impatient diners. And they say romance is dead.
Happy Valentine’s Day, folks!
