A Gamer’s Field Guide to Couch Co-Op

Don’t go in alone! Always have a buddy who’s got your back!

If you spend a lot of your free time gaming, you’re a lot like me. I mean, how can you not – they’re awesome! My wife and I are always on the hunt for our next great gaming adventure. For us, that next great hidden gem of a co-op experience is harder than trying to find Will in Stranger Things. It’s frustrating that a key feature that shaped many childhoods, mine included, is being forgotten. I miss the good old days where all you needed was a few good snacks, a great game, and a second controller. Here’s a walk down memory lane with my list of awesome co-op games you need to play with a buddy.

Everyone Loves Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeons & Dragons isn’t geek culture, it’s pop culture. For the uninitiated, Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game. Of course, for those who play, it’s so much more than that. At its core, D&D is about storytelling; it’s about you and your friends telling a story together. This includes guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. Each player creates a character with different attributes and abilities that they can level up through playing multiple sessions, otherwise known as the campaign.

Pokémon League presented by Team Rocket Az

We’ve all been familiar with Pokémon for a very long time – more than two decades. Any kid will remember the endless Gameboy games, cards, and media surrounding these little, animated characters. Today, Pokémon leagues and meetups are popping up all over the place. That said, there has never been a better time to join one.
