Top 5 Cooperative Games for Valentine's Day

Top 5 Cooperative Games for Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is on Sunday, and if you haven't picked up anything for your significant other, or booked that romantic dinner, then maybe it's time to introduce some gaming it your relationship. Start by showing your partner to your favourite cooperative game and see how well you two work under pressure!

Don't have a favourite game? We got you covered with our top 5!

5. Army of Two

Probably one of the most ridiculous games I've played, but immensely fun! You play as either Salem or Rios, two private military contractors working all over the world doing infiltration and seek and destroy missions. You can wear a variety of badass masks which make you look intimidating as all hell and pimp out your guns (no, literally there is an option to "pimp" your gun).

Army of Two encourages full on cooperative play that doesn't add a ton to the overall game, but create some cool aspects. When you come across a heavy enemy, you have to work together with your partner to distract them through their aggro mechanic. Basically one player takes the aggro by blind firing in cover to distract the enemy, and the other player takes out the target either by flanking or doing takedown move. Its pretty fun when it works! Currently, there 3 titles in the franchise, but I highly recommend picking up the original.

4. Halo: Combat Evolved

You're probably thinking, "why would anyone recommend the original Halo when Halo 5 just came out"? Well, I'll answer that one for you. Halo 5 doesn't have split-screen coop. Nice one Bungie. So to protest this fact, I am going to recommend the first installation to the series.

Halo: Combat Evolved was the epitome for many teen gamer's in 2001. I can remember countless hours of play through the hallways of the Pillar of Autumn mowing down cute Grunts with my MA5B Assault Rifle, shooting unexpected crew members for their precious pistol ammo. Good times. Lets face it, Halo was one of the best cooperative games ever made, it's fun action based story was engaging and the combat mechanics were spot on. So dust off your Xbox and prepare to save the UNSC from aliens, who for some reason, speak English. Interesting.

3. Gears of War

The entire Gears of War franchise is worth playing with a significant other (or more likely a buddy in this case). In my short life, it's the first game to combine my two favorite weapons, chainsaws and machine guns, together into one unstoppable weapon called the Lancer (love it).

Oh yeah, there's a pretty complicated story that goes along with the game. You're on this planet called Sera. There was some war (The Pendulum Wars) or whatever over Imulsion which is actually the bio-organic material of an ancient race called the Locust (who are look like pissed off versions of 'The Thing' from Fantastic 4) are basically murdering humanity and it's your job to chainsaw every last one. Nevertheless, the entire franchise is a great play through cooperatively and will keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire game.

2. Left 4 Dead (1 or 2)

A staple in the zombie genre, but for those of you that have never heard of it, Left 4 Dead is a simple no frills four player zombie shooter. There's no leveling, no perks, or stats. You are in a group of four survivors who need to work together to survive a zombie apocalypse. The levels are awesome, and the moments of silence are just eerie enough to create a sense of suspense. What I like personally is that the zombies are balanced perfectly with just the right amount of attack and speed to make them seem threatening, but not overpowering. If a horde attacks you careful path management and weapon timing can save your bacon!

Left 4 Dead is the perfect game for the couple that wants to work on their communication, sharing, and zombie slaughtering.

1. Portal 2

"We're going to have fun. With science".

Portal 2 is (you guessed it) the sequel to the ever popular Portal released in 2007. Portal 2's distinc co-op campaign follows two Aperture Labs testing robots; ATLAS and P-body as they solve (and fail) a multitude complex puzzles and mazes. And these aren't your garden variety puzzles! No sir! Moving ramps, lasers, machine gun turrets, and hot lava will impede your progress. The game requires two players to work together to solve each room and the fun "light-hearted" commentary makes the experience fun and enjoyable. The cooperative campaign is about 4-5 hours long and therefore perfect for a few hours of playing each night. Portal 2 is the best game to play if your partner is less into shooting zombies and more into puzzle solving through creative thinking.

"Continue testing."

Share your love of gaming with your significant other with these awesome cooperative games!
