“If you and your partner long for the days of games from the 80s and 90s, you should check out the myriad of “old school” games that are available on platform consoles like PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo. Most console systems at this point have a good chunk of “nostalgia” type games that you and your partner may have played when your child and teen years.”

Fall Out

“Some games simply aren’t for two players. Popular titles such as the Fall Out Series often see a single-player game with online ability for co-op or multiplayer. Still, playing together is difficult unless you and your partner have the same system and/or game. However, many users have said Fallout is a fun game to play, and you can let your significant other pick/make all the decisions, dialogue options, and where to go next.”

Mario Odyssey

“A newer, more popular game amongst couples is Mario Odyssey. This is especially fun if one of you is not great at video games because Cappy can’t die. Only Mario can. The game is also a lot easier as a two-player game because now the person playing Mario doesn’t have to control Cappy simultaneously. Basically, they benefit from you playing with them.”
