Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted

The PlayStation 5 is a console that has gathered many quality titles since its release. However, that being said, many of these games are even more fun with a friend. There are few feelings in gaming that are more satisfying than tackling content with someone you mesh well with. It is within these experiences that something intrinsically bonding takes place. So without further ado, here are our picks for the Best PS5 Co-op Games of All Time.

5. Destiny 2Best sci-fi games on next-gen

Destiny 2 is a game that has offered players hours upon hours of content. The cooperative FPS has allowed players to face many daunting challenges together. Players are cast as the Guardian, one of the last heroes left on Earth. Players will undertake various missions to bring peace to the galaxy in this role. Destiny 2 is a game that has gained much attention through its use of community content and massive-scale raids. These raids have been praised across the board for their design and mechanics.

Raiding isn't the only thing to do in the game, however, as there is also a PvP element to Destiny 2 that is immensely popular. This PvP pits players up against each other with various abilities and weapons. The capabilities that each player has access to are determined by their class and range in their utility as well as their destructive power. If players do not want to tackle this PvP element alongside their friends, however, there is plenty of PvE content in Destiny 2. Destiny 2 is an experience built from the ground up to be enjoyed with friends, making it one of the best PS5 Co-op Games.

4. Overcooked: All You Can EatSeptember

Overcooked: All You Can Eat combines the best aspects of this culinary cult classic. The game is entertaining and replayable through various campaigns and an arcade mode. In which you try to get the highest score possible. The game casts players as different quirky chefs to fulfill food orders to save the world from a great calamity ultimately. In this game, players will learn to fry and filet various foods to serve an ever-hungry customer base.

The genius part of Overcooked: All You Can Eat is that it is not simply a cooking game. While yes, you primarily cook, often the stage you are on will fight against you. This variability causes chaos and tension as you complete orders as rapidly as possible. In addition, to gain a high score for the level. This duality causes the game to be very accessible at first but very high stakes if you want to put that amount of investment into it. Much like the Mario Party games, these games seem very sweet and innocent until it's time to get competitive. In conclusion, Overcooked: All You Can Eat is an absolute blast to enjoy with friends and is one of the best co-op games the PS5 can offer.

3. Elden Ring

While it may not be your typical entry, Elden Ring is a blast to play with friends. The latest game created by From Software of Dark Souls fame, Elden Ring, improves on the classic Souls formula in many ways. Players are tasked with defeating various brutalizing bosses, which never feels more satisfying than when tackled beside a friend. In addition, the combat in the game is slow and deliberate, making it very wise for players to plan out their attacks and parries.

Elden Ring took the gaming world by storm. When it was released, more people were playing the game than ever. Frequently with friends, in this shared experience, players find a particular bond over the game. As a result, this title has garnered much critical and commercial success. It is soon becoming one of our most streamed and played games. And it deserves every bit of hype that it has received since its release. So if you or a friend have not played Elden Ring, there has never been a better time than now to pick it up.

2. Borderlands 3Borderlands Easter Eggs

Borderlands 3 is an absolute riot to play with friends. The zany and wacky looter shooter offers the player many hours of content with even more added with DLC. Once again, players will fill the Vault Hunters role, where they will look for great treasure. Along the way, they encounter many enemies and steal loot from them. The gameplay loop of Borderlands 3 might be simple, but within this simplicity, the game shines.

So if players are looking for a game to tackle with friends, look no further than Borderlands 3. The shooting mechanics have been improved since the series' second game, making for an altogether better experience.
