Gathering with your friends at home, leaving your responsibilities behind, and having fun like in the good old days has a certain charm. It’s nice to go back to the basics in an age of online co-op battle royales and single-player games with complicated stories. GG.deals has put together a list of the top 22 best local co-op PC games for you to play with your friends, family, or a potential love interest, no matter how good or bad they are at games or how much you love and care about them.
For beginners, the game is easy to play and doesn’t go much further than “move, jump, attack, special attack.” Perfect for parties with a lot of “normal” people or a fun night out with someone who can’t game to save their lives. Still, these games can be played by people with more experience if you change the level of difficulty.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (For 2 to 4 players)

Overcooked & Overcooked 2 (For 2 to 4 players)
This game is like being in Hell’s Kitchen from the comfort of your own home. The tasks seem easy at first (take out the vegetables, cut them up, fry them, and serve the right orders), but as soon as the timer starts, you realise that team members need to work together very well. You and your fellow chefs start making plans and dividing up tasks, which turns the game night into a real team-building exercise. Overcooked is recommended by GG.deals for people who have never played a video game before. Overcooked 2 is recommended for people who have played a few video games before.
(Literally, any of) LEGO Games (For 2 to 4 players)
Most people who don’t like LEGO games have never played them with other people. It gives you the chance to relive your favourite action game adventures with the cute LEGO style. The colorful design and intuitive gameplay can be found appealing by different demographics, making LEGO games a great option for gaming sessions with your friends, siblings, even children, or your parents. Just pick a game from the list, because it has everything your heart could want. There are games about superheroes, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and original games.
TowerFall Ascension (For 2 to 4 players)
Anyone can figure out how to play, but the game is still hard enough for everyone. Pixel graphics work well for this arcade platformer, and only the most adamant haters of this style would be turned off by them. There are lots of fun strategies to find during the game and use against your opponents (eg. shooting the arrow through a candle and the ability to catch the arrow). TowerFall Ascension has different modes for multiplayer play, like co-op quest and battle royal. Overall, the intense PvP action in this game makes it easy to play again and again.
Unravel Two (For 2 players)
All of the things we liked about the first game, Unravel, made it into the second game: the pretty graphics, the cute music, and the cute main character, Yarnie. And now you can enjoy the game’s heartwarming atmosphere with your second player. You can solve puzzles by flying across gaps, rappelling down walls, climbing up cliff faces, and lassoing objects in the distance. Unravel Two is great for people who are new to video games because the puzzles are hard but not so hard that they don’t want to keep playing. This beautiful, low-stress game is great for a relaxing game night with your partner.
SpeedRunners (For 2 to 4 players)
If you’re tired of working together with your friends and want to compete instead, this one is worth your time. As soon as everyone has chosen their character, you start racing each other, running and swinging on the hook across the map to cut each other off the map and be out of the round. Because the game’s rules and tricks are easy to understand, it gets harder to win each race. SpeedRunners is one of the most competitive games we’ve ever played, and it’s sure to be a hit at parties and other gatherings.
Rayman Legends (For 2 to 4 players)
This game is a great mix of the best parts of old-school platformers and new ideas in game design. Many well-thought-out maps offer different challenges that are unique to their themes. Rayman Legends makes you feel nostalgic, just like when you played Super Mario, but it does so in a charming way with hand-drawn graphics that are beautiful. Rayman Legends has a lot of potential to keep you playing for hours as you try to get a perfect score on every level. It’s possible that this is the best platformer you’ll ever find.
Castle Crashers (For 2 to 4 players)
You and your fellow knights must hack, slash, and smash your way to victory. Castle Crashers is an adventure arcade that keeps you interested for a long time and makes you laugh even during the most crude battles. The RPG parts (different weapons, character stats) are so easy to understand that even a complete newbie can figure out what to do. We at GG.deals think that Castle Crashers is a great choice for a wide range of events and crowds.
Death Squared is like Portal if the view was from above, the characters were cute cubes, and the game didn’t have any portals. The game is so real that it has a snarky narrator who makes fun of you as you fail and pass levels. It’s a cute puzzle game that doesn’t mind making tickling your brain cute and funny.
Human: Fall Flat
This is a great game for two people who want to work together and solve puzzles. It has strangely fun physics that make you and a friend fight over your controllers to get your blobby avatars up and moving. Because of the physics, getting through simple stages is never as easy as it seems. If you play on PC, you can make your own levels and also play the ones that other players have made.
