It needs such a little description, but Minecraft is one of the best co-op games you’ll ever play. This is classic entertainment with so much to do that you will never get bored. Play sky blocks, vanilla, or just set your own challenges if you enjoy playing so much. However, Minecraft is perfect for those looking for an easy gaming session.

When originally announced, Streets of Rage 4 could have gone very well or become a total disaster that everyone will forget about in a few days, primarily due to how successful and loved the first three parts of the series were. Luckily, Streets of Rage 4 has surpassed all expectations, breathing life into a series that has been dormant for 26 years.

The great levels, intricate puzzles, and fun atmosphere of Unravel Two are more than enough to recommend it to anyone who wants to play solo. But with the addition of co-op play, we can’t recommend playing it with a friend as solving puzzles together and enjoying stunning visuals is second to none.

Sure, Dead Space 3 isn’t even in the same league as the first couple, but when you’re playing with a friend, it’s a much more enjoyable experience. Despite losing the story that made the series shine, Dead Space 3 has its moments and isn’t bad enough to be unplayable.

Physics-based games may not be to everyone’s liking, and that’s understandable. However, we encourage you to try out Human Fall Flat with a group of good friends, as you will no doubt be shocked by the maniacal laughter at how out of control the whole game has gone. This game has no limits on the kinds of degenerations you can do, which is what makes it so good.
