Valentine’s Day is coming up, and for those who would normally schedule a date night out, things are going to look pretty different this year due to the pandemic. However, there are still plenty of ways to spend quality time with your loved one indoors this Valentine’s Day, and one of the best options is finding a co-op video game you can both enjoy together. To that end, we’ve rounded up the best games for couples to play this Valentine’s Day, but of course, these are great games to play together any night of the year that you want to spend some time together. For the purposes of this roundup, we’ve focused on games that offer local co-op so you can cuddle up on the couch while you play.
We recognize that in some couples, one person may have more gaming experience than the other, so keep that in mind when picking a game. None of the titles we’ve included here are particularly taxing, but some of them may be more suited for people who are already comfortable using a controller. (We have a separate guide on games to play with people who don’t normally play games if you find yourself needing more options.)
While quality time can often be the best gift someone can ask for, others like to receive physical tokens of affection on Valentine’s Day. If you’re still pondering what to get your partner, see our suggestions for the best Valentine’s Day gifts, with ideas for gamers and more. We also have recommendations for cozy, feel-good Valentine’s Day movies to watch with your loved one this year.
