Request: Looking for the best couch co-op games
Hello fellow gamers!
It's getting to be that time of year where it's cold outside, and all you want to do is curl up under the blankets and play video games with your partner.
The wife and I have been playing a lot of Overcooked for the Nintendo Switch, and as fun as it's been, we're looking for other great casual local cooperative games. I stress cooperative because I'm way too competitive (looking at you Mario Kart 8 ) and it's not as much fun playing on separate teams.
We recently purchased Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! in search of a good co-op game (and to relive our childhoods spent playing Pokémon Red on the gameboy) but found the second player not very engaging. The same went for Super Mario Odyssey (controlling the hat via Player-2 leads to frustrations). We're looking for something where we both have equal inputs and control.
So I ask the community - what couch co-op games would you recommend for us? Preferably on the Switch but we're geeked out with nearly every console ever made. Any and all recommendations will be much appreciated in this household 😀
