Introducing 25 Best Video Games to Play as a Couple (A Gaming List). So, you’re feeling lonely and want to know the best video games to play as a couple. It’s only natural. Sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting down for a few hours and playing a video game, but too much time alone can make you forget what it’s like to talk to another human being, I should know; I have over two hundred hours logged on Skyrim alone. When you’re in a relationship, you can’t play Civilization for 10 hours straight. “But Robin! How will I get my video game fix if I have to spend all my time with my significant other?!”
Don’t fear, I’m here to help. Here are the 25 Best Video Games to Play as a Couple.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch
In Octodad, you control an octopus who’s keeping up the clever ruse that he is actually a human. I don’t know what insane person thought of that but I thank them because it’s most ridiculous games I’ve ever seen. All you have to do in Octodad is control your arms and legs, but as a fish out of water this isn’t easy. It’s even harder when you split the controls between two people. That’s right, in Octodad you can play with two people and the two of you constantly switch what body parts you’re controlling making for some pretty hilarious hi-jinks that will make you and your partner laugh with delight.
Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes
This video game requires one person to defuse a bomb but the instructions lie in the hands of your teammate. It’s requires good communication skills between the two people. and a great way to develop those skills with your partner.
Left 4 Dead 2
Blood, guns, and zombies. What a great way to spend a Friday night with someone. In “Left 4 Dead” you and up to three other players must navigate through a zombie infested wasteland and get to the safe room at the end of the level. All while you mow down the zombie horde with a variety of weapons.
The game does take some cooperation and teamwork, and while it may take some time to get into the swing of things, by the end you and your partner will be killing zombies like a well-oiled machine.
A Way Out
Ever wanted to escape prison with someone? Well in “A Way Out” you can attempt to escape prison with your partner without having to go through all that pesky crime nonsense. Unlike most other games on this list, A Way Out is a story driven co-op game, which is something of a rarity these days. Even better, only one person has to buy it for both to be able to play it.
Throughout the course of the game you’ll both navigate the escape from the prison you find yourselves in as well as escaping from the law.
This is a monster dating simulation game that doesn’t take itself seriously in the slightest. It constantly makes fun of itself and the ridiculous scenarios that dating sim games tend to have in them. It’s especially fun to play with others; they enhance the experience and try to date the same monster (gasp), drama!
It’s a fun time when you voice the characters with each other and go along with the wacky and fun story.
