Good coop games

20 posts in this topic

This is the compiled list of all game suggestions listed by order of appearance in the thread. I will probably spend some time in the future to compile this into groups ordered by genre as well as "true" coop and mere multiplayer enabled coop. The difference being if the game is designed for players to beat it together (e.g. Battleforge) or merely enables you to play together without the chance to experience the majority of the game this way (e.g. Company of Heroes).
And no I won't list Battleforge. I think everyone here might have played it once or twice.

1st post                                                                                                                                                   

My best friend and I are always on the lookout for good coop games. Mainly because we have already played through the best of them more than enough times.
And now we are at this point again where everything we look at either looks bad or has been played already. So here you come into the equation. Post your best suggestions.
I'll try to update the list of the whole thread in the first post every once in a while.

I will begin with a couple of games for you all but I won't name every single one I've played now as I'm simply too lazy for that.

My personal choice

 
  • Portal 1 & 2
    • Shining example of what coop is supposed to feel like. Puzzle game for 1-2 players
  • Orcs Must Die 1 & 2
    • Plaster the walls of a map with as many traps as you can fit and inbetween you beat up hordes of monsters. Yes, it's as much fun as it sounds like. Strategy & Fighting game mix for 1-2 players.
  • Broforce
    • My personal indie game of the year of all times. With an incredibly sarcastic and cynical sense of humor it presents a Metal Slug inspired jump-and-run with more variation and way more explosions. 1-4 players
  • Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
    • It doesn't matter if you play YOLO Gandalf or machine gun bow Legolas. Just choose one of the many heroes and level them up. The amount of orcs slain in this game is enough to build a 1:1 replica of the Two Towers with the corpses. RPG-style combat game without the RP part for 1-2 players
  • Star Wars: Battlefront 1 & 2
    • Ignore EA's latest venture and go back to the classics. Old-fashioned couch coop in split-screen mode in an amazing FPS that combines fast-paced gameplay with a bit of strategy and a hero system just to make yourself feel good. 1-2 players
  • LEGO Star Wars 1 & 2
    • Surprisingly good coop games mixing up 3D platforming with simple combat action and decently funny cutscenes. 1-2 players
  • Company of Heroes 1
    • This isn't really traditional coop as there is no coop campaign or the like. The multiplayer allows to play vs as many CPU players as one wants though which get quite challenging on expert difficulty. This is a true RTS game requiring one to dive a bit into the game mechanics to enjoy it to the fullest. To anyone who enjoyed BattleForge though this should be a welcome addition to your library. Note that it is only available for Steam anymore. Old CD-Keys need to be registered there. 1-4 players in coop or 2-8 players as multiplayer

Additional personal recommendations

 
  • Borderlands 1, 2, The Pre-Sequel
    • A really nice true coop FPS with RPG elements and a great (morbid) sense of humour. The only reason this didn't make my best-of list is that it really feels repetitive after a while with the level or weapons grinding. Other games on the lists aren't less repetitive they just don't feel like it. 1-4 players
  • Saint's Row 2, 3, 4
    • Anyone who liked cheating in GTA: San Andreas and wreaking havoc everywhere will like these games. And here you don't even need to cheat to get to the good stuff. The fourth installment isn't quite as good as the second and third one though due to power creep. 1-2 players
  • Helldivers
    • Part of an interstellar military unit that kills anything that's able to fight back you need to cleanse planets from alien, robots, etc. This top-down shooter requires a fair amount of teamwork in order to finish higher difficulties. Thankfully it allows coop groups of 1-4 players
  • Risk of Rain
    • Jump-and-run shooter. Just take a look at a 10 second video of the game and you got everything you need to know. Fun with friends. Less so alone. 1-4 players
  • Tom Clancy's HAWX
    • A dogfighting game for a change. Decently enjoyable. 1-4 players
  • Trackmania Stadium², Sunrise Xtreme
    • A precise racing game enabling you to drive and build incredible tracks. The tracks can be divided quite clearly into the category where you need to shave off another tenth of a second to get the gold medal and tracks that you just desperately try to even finish. Given that you even know where the finish line is located. It's more multiplayer than coop though. 1-16 players (or something like that)
  • Magicka
    • Really fun to find out all the different ways you can kill your teammates and then proceed to die vs the incoming wave only to start all over again. Becomes more boring after you found every single way though. 1-4 players
  • Shoot Many Robots
    • Underrated sidescrolling shooter. Real fun with friends, especially if you like defending against waves of creeps. Would be even greater if it was made for more than 1-2 players
  • Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod
    • Another game that's just about wreaking havoc like in GTA:SA. The multiplayer mod adds a lot of silly features to the Just Cause world that are only possible with 2 players and accordingly 2 grappling hooks. Just don't expect any coop-specific gameplay like a campaign or even a single mission. Just a lot of sandbox fun. 1-64 players (don't quote me on that)

I'd say Rock of Ages II, it's must playing with friends, such as fun and non-serious game :D
There's also Dungeon Defenders II that is really a must as well, otherwise for people that want some competition, Battlerite is fun to play in 2v2 :D

Action/shooter coop:
Shadow warrior 2(fun nonsense hack n slash + stereotypes)
Alien swarm(keep eachother safe and work together, top down shooter, can be abit hard but its fast, its fun and abit frustrating at times)
killing floor(zombie shooter on lsd whenever theres a season of smth(christmas, new years etc))
 livelock(abit like alien swarm but its robots and its a more futuristic world with future tech weapons), castle crashers(sidescrolling hack n slash adventure)
dark souls series(technically semi-coop, action rpg where you can summon your friends to help you in an area where you havent defeated the boss yet)
pubg(fps/tps solo, duo or in a squad, the coop experience is very different from solo, and can be really entertaining and backstabbing)
vermintide(left4dead but with warhammer, and all the zombies are skaven(Ratmen on steroids) and the apocalypse of rats overflooding the world is coming, good luck)
space hulk deathwing(warhammer 40k left4dead ish, you are less of a survivalist more of an elite team sent to recover old forgotten tech from a giant ruin of a space ship/multiple ships that has been infested with tyranids, you sound heavy and so does the weapons, satisfying to play)
sanctum 1/2(action fps + tower defense),

rts coop campaigns:
Battleforge
ofc :D
Dawn of war II(rts + rpg ish coop campaign)
starcraft II(kinda late but the coop mode is okay, but limited to single instances(almost like a little coop custom map))
total war warhammer I/II(coop grand campaign in a civilization(X4)+rts hybrid styled map where you control your armies, provinces and diplomacy on a grand map, and then when your armies fight it turns into an rts and the graphics in this game is really just great.)

dungeon crawler? coop:
Victor vran (fight against all sorts of monsters, loot simulator, jump like a ninja off walls to get up to higher levels - fun)
diablo series (3 games all pretty good, first one is abit dated and you can feel its old, 2 is a masterpiece of a loot simulator and 3 did a really good followup(after a few big changes and some fixes) but overall a great overachieving story and fun to hack n slash your way through hordes of enemies with your friends)
torchlight II (kinda like diablo 2 but abit more cartoony graphics and Fishing, with bombs)
 

Puzzle coop:
trine 2
(really fun puzzle coop where you control different characters with different abilites to help eachother get through the levels, sidescrolling)
 forced (top down ish puzzle coop where you and your friends fight together and try to solve the puzzles by working together)

turn based coop:
Civilization (pretty fun to play together with friends against friends or against ai, time consuming)
Endless legend/space, Eador, Warlock(all of these games campaigns are grand strategy mixed with smth like heroes of might and magic, really time consuming but really entertaining to play, you get heroes with armies and heroes and units can individually level up, in the endless series you can create your own units(more or less theres templates to it)
Heroes of might and magic (not really a coop campaign but many fun hours can be had in multiplayer working together against other players or the AI)

Rpg coop:
Nox (fun dungeon crawling ISH coop, but put it here instead because its not that much a loot simulator, theres good puzzles, good fights, fun bosses, you can murderhobo a decent amount of normal npcs and your friends if you feel like it, the story is entertaining and its a game just made for fun by fun)
Baldurs gate I/II, neverwinter nights I/II (oldschool read a lot Dungeons and dragons inspired rpgs, great stories, needs patience to read, especially with multiple people, takes a lot of time to play)
divinity original sin I/II (take the above games, add a good amount of slapstick comedy and A lot of enviromental spells(FUN) and you get divinity original sin enhanced edition, improve a bit on that and you get divinity original sin 2, in the first you can only play 2 players coop(4 with mods) in the 2 you can play up to 4 people coop, you can also betray your friends in 2)
Elder scrolls skyrim(technically with mods :D)

Chill/Funhouse/crafting/Mods coop:
Minecraft
Terria
stardew valley

the forest
wc3 custom maps, dota 2 custom maps, starcraft 2 custom maps(those 3 games are gold mines of short or longer coop-maps)

Got a few questions before i recommend my other favorites. Is your friend living far away from your place or could he visit you for playing several hours? Then which gaming platforms are available? Wii U, PS3 PS4 Xbox Switch or even handhelds like Nintendo 3DS.

The game i'd like to recommend now is the whole Monster Hunter series. Yeah its still a while until the release of Monster Hunter World but i still like the previous games like Monster Hunter Ultimate 3 and Ultimate 4. The singleplayer is pretty nice to learn the game but the real game starts in the multiplayer. The raising difficulty of this game is pretty fair and the games gives you the feeling that youre not just hunting monsters, these are animals in a different world with their very own behaviors. And all the possibilties to hunt a monster is pretty awesome, you can be a support or a damagedealer whenever you want since you can change your class anytime. You've successfully hunted a monster and you can carve it to get his materials to create your next equipment. The beginning is sadly a bit slow but as soon as you have slain your first big monster youre completely soaked into the game and its getting more and more fun. Over 2000hours of playing cant lie though ;) 

The only sad part about this game is that its made from Nintendo so dont expect amazing graphics, some npcs or weapons looking poorly but the design of the monsters is amazing. :D

CIVILIZATION V OHHH MAN. 
That game I cannot get enough of and now I am going to sit here and write an entire essay of why you should pick Civ V over Civ VI and whatnot (no I will not be thrashing on AoM because I know people will get mad at me if I do ;) ) Civ V, what is it? You take role of one of the leaders of countries back in the olden days. Civ is a strategy series on which you can conquer the world or procedurally generated maps. Conquering the world is not the only way you can win in Civ V so if building an army and annihilating your opponent isn't your thing thats ok. You can win by Science victory (my personal favourite) in which you get through the tech tree to late game and you assemble a space shuttle to fly up to the moon. You can win by Diplomatic victory which is basically just making friends with all of the countries and city states (booooooring). You can also get a Cultural victory by war shipping gods and going through your policy tree until you are able to achieve the necessary cultural supremacy over the other countries. Finally you may also win with Domination which is pretty self explanatory (go kill everyone). If you are not familiar with any Civ games, I suggest you start with Civ V (WITH ALL DLC). What makes Civ V better than any other civ game? Well there is lots of comparisons between Civ V and Civ VI, it all comes down to the content and Civ V has farther more content than Civ VI. Also Civ VI is way more cartoony than the previous Civ games, the sad part is in lots of peoples opinions Civ V looks better than Civ VI. If you are thinking huh this is a good game to sit and play for 20 minutes this is not for you, when you play this game be expecting to have your life sucked away from you because your mind will start to tell you "just one more turn, just one more turn". For example You start playing Civ at the crack of dawn, well pal next thing you know its midnight. Dont even think about buying Civ Beyond Earth because that game is utter trash and a money grab at most. You may play a variety of countries ranging from Englands Queen Elizabeth (Idk which one but she died in 1558, maybe you know?). It doesn't even stop there, all thanks to the community workshop making countless of mods for hours of fun on this great game. Oh and the variety of countries? Yeah people make tons of mods to add different countries in the game like Canada :3. Thats enough of me rambling for now, I most likely will edit this once I remember more but until then! :D

@DawsonTheFish Only a literal dumbass would say Civ VI is better than Civ V... no need for a entire essay 

Clearly someone who had played Civ III would never talk about any of the successors

Pfft, only somebody who never found the Fall for Heaven mod for Civ IV would say that.

In that spirit I would absolutely endorse a lot of suggestions already in here; Civ IV, Terraria, Magicka, Portal 1 & 2, PUBG, Starcraft 2, and Dawn of War 2 are all games that I've spent many, many hours in with friends and still play now.

Would also throw in Sattelite Reign and Stellaris as extra contenders from my list, love both games!
