Finish this sentence. The best co-op video game of all time is ____. Some of us are serious gamers. Some of us avoid relationships because of video games. There are co-op games specifically made to strengthen your relationships. “Gaming.net” has the top 5 co-op video games. 

In the future, this top 5 list may change. Until then, there is a high expectancy from game designers to outdo the next best thing. You can just hear the drops of sweat pouring from their pores. Or maybe that is just your leaky faucet. Anyhow, here is the top 5 co-op video games. 

 

5. Fortnite: 

Once “Fortnite” was released back in 2017, those that were not hardcore gamers wanted to see what all of the fuss was about. This game became a treat for probably everyone.

Like, “What is with all of this celebratory dancing like you scored a touchdown?” “Why are you just shooting at enemies, leaping around like martians?”  “Why are digital walls and steps, constantly changing in front of characters while you defend yourself against attackers?” 

In “Fortnite,” you can ride vehicles, and tame dinosaurs, all while planning to aimlessly shoot at your attackers. If you have good aim, maybe you can find the right attacker to eliminate, rather they are peeking out windows, hiding in the bushes, on lofty hills, etc..

4. Minecraft: 

Here we go again. “Minecraft” is being talked about for all of you “Lego” fanatics. Have fun extracting in a 3-dimensional world where there is an infinite terrain, craft with numerous tools and items and build to die for structures. 

If you hardly play video games, you would probably think “Minecraft” was influenced by “Minesweeper.” Well, in “Minecraft,” you can create your own version of “Minesweeper.” Create anything like your own amusement park and therefore, you can have multiple times the fun. 

Well, anything you can do with a “Lego” set, you can certainly do with “Minecraft.” It is just that with “Minecraft,” there are more possibilities. Create invigorating mountains and trees, as well as dreamlike hideouts and seemingly bottomless ditches. If you want, you can create living organisms. 

Design your own home with a backyard pool made out of digital blocks. This game also has a survival mode, where players must require resources to successfully build the creative world, all while maintaining health. Players will have unlimited resources. 

“Minecraft” is considered one of the greater video games of all time and it was only in November 18, 2011, when the game was first released. The game has won various awards that you probably are already familiar with.

3. Grand Theft Auto Online: 

I think it is clear why a “Grand Theft Auto” game had to be on the list. Why not? You get to basically do nearly anything you want from fighting (with an unfathomable amount of confidence), to shooting (like you are not a human being), stealing collectible vehicles (that would normally cost more than your house), picking up women (which also can cost a fortune), and working (when you can slack off). 

“Grand Theft Auto Online” is a dream game for people with pipe dreams. Also, it has unnoticeable moments like road rage. Accomplish the things you always wanted to in life with “Grand Theft Auto Online.”

2. A Way Out: 

“A Way Out” is an action/adventure game specifically for two people. There is no single player option, which is highly unusual for a video game. The game can be played online or local, split-screen co-op between two players. Each player can control one of the main characters. 

Every task in this game is for two players and working together is a necessity. Some tasks you have to do with a second player is fighting, sneaking around the prison, stealing items, spear fishing, etc. This game is about two prisoners, Leo and Vincent, working together to escape. 

At the construction site, Leo and Vincent participate in an arm wrestling. Also, in the game, Leo can play basketball (with his son) along with Vincent. Leo and Vincent can play baseball together. A good example of working together is when Leo and Vincent take turns playing “Connect 4” at the hospital. 

At the Countryside Estate, after Leo and Vincent escape prison and enter a couple’s house, there is a mode where you can play the piano or banjo (like a ‘Guitar Hero’ game). Command buttons will show up on the screen and you have to press them in time to properly play the instrument.

1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:

One of my favorite video game playing growing up was “Mario Kart” on N64 (Nintendo 64), but the future treated us with “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” for Nintendo Switch. “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” was released back in April 28, 2017. Not only can you race against your family and friends, you have a wider variety of characters to choose from. 

To name some characters, there is obviously Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Toad, and Walugi, Bowser, Warrior, and Yoshi. There is also Light-blue Yoshi, Black Yoshi, Red Yoshi, etc.. There is Toadette, King Boo, Baby Mario, Link, Rosalina, Donkey Kong, Cat Peach, and more. 

This is the expanded version from the Wii U platform. There are 48 courses to race on, including courses inspired by the “Legend of Zelda” series and “Excite Bike.

 

Bonus: It Takes Two: 

May and Cody are going through a divorce and have to relearn how to work together. Their minds are changed into dolls that their daughter Rose designed, representing them. “It Takes Two” is a puzzle game where May and Cody work together to get back into their normal bodies. 

They must learn to work together with the help of the “Book of Love,” a talking anthropomorphic book.
