Sometimes there’s a special joy from playing an excellent local couch co-op game right beside your friends, family, significant other, or dog. These are three excellent games to enjoy with others!
Everyone has heard about this game at some point. Either from their family, their kids, significant others, friends, dogs, fish, or when shopping for merchandise. Did you know, though, that it now includes split-screen? Instead of telling people to get off Fortnite or to start doing their work, why don’t you start having some fun with this competitive battle royal game? In this game, players aim to be the last man standing! Two players can play beside together and say the popular modern pop-culture sentence, “where we droppin” or express anger at each other because one of you died. If you’re going to be playing with your kids, you can then get in on the popular Fortnite dances and start understanding those references kids say nowadays, so start playing! Fortnite split-screen is available only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Overcooked! 2 serves up a funny co-op game with up to four players! In this game, four players have to serve up as much food as possible to as many people.

If you’re ever hungry or too lazy to cook, whip up some food by playing Overcooked! 2! The game is available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
