Top 10 Local Multiplayer Games To Play With The Friends You Don’t Have –

 

 

If you’re browsing eBaum’s World, then chances are you don’t have any friends. Don’t worry, they’re overrated anyway.

But if you did have friends, these are the 10 games I would recommend playing. Trust me, I played them with my imaginary friend. Oh, and all these games can be found for under $15 if you look hard enough.

1. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Supported Players: 2

Borderlands has earned a reputation for being a go-to for local multiplayer over the years. This colorful first-person shooter has a ton of weapons to experiment with, as well as RPG-style progression. It also has healthy humor with a charismatic story to follow. This bundle of two full games is the only first-person shooter on this list, making it the premium choice for fans of the genre.

2. Diablo 3

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Supported Players: 4

If you and your friends happen to enjoy Diablo‘s gameplay style, this is arguably the best game you can invest in. It’s highly addictive with an attractive loot grind that is incentivized through exciting gameplay. It’s easy to pick up and play as well as being capable of delivering dozens of hours of play value.

 

3. LittleBigPlanet 3

Platforms: PS4

Supported Players: 4

LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of the most charming games you will ever find. This platformer is a great substitute for Mario, equipped with seemingly infinite player made levels to try out.

 

4. Helldivers

Platforms: PS4

Supported Players: 4

Helldivers functions very similarly to Diablo 3, although its atmosphere is a bit more toned down. Players engage in chaotic combat using a variety of weaponry and strategy elements. It’s quick and to the point, which is exactly what you want in a group setting.

5. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

LEGO® STAR WARS™: The Force Awakens_20160630212254

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Wii U

Supported Players: 2

This is the game you want if you’re with someone who doesn’t play video games often. It’s simple and makes a huge effort to encourage team play. In addition, it’s based on LEGO and the latest Star Wars trilogy, which are popular among people of all ages.

6. Minecraft

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Supported Players: 2

Minecraft is a free-form game that doesn’t apply any set of rules or objectives to you or your partner. You can head out into the game world and craft your own adventure, including building structures, fetching materials and food, as well as fighting off dangerous enemies. This sparks creativity and makes for unique experiences every time you play it.

7. Overcooked

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Supported Players: 4

While many other games simply tack on the co-operative experience, Overcooked has been created with interactive play in mind. Players work together to deal with hazards and cook delicious food because it’s fun. It’s strangely addictive, and enforces the notion that you can’t succeed with your partner.

8. Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Supported Players: 2

Resident Evil 5 is a full blown AAA game with a campaign that is best enjoyed with a friend. It’s intense, which makes it unsuitable for some audiences. But if you’re with a hardcore gamer friend, you can expect at least 8 hours of quality entertainment from this survival horror game.

 

9. Rocket League

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Supported Players: 2

If you and your partner happen to be hardcore gamers, Rocket League is a solid choice. This game merges racing and soccer to create one of the world’s most interesting competitive experiences. Supporting split-screen, you can practice against bots before heading online to spar with other groups. There are even several game mode choices to keep you going.

10. Towerfall Ascension

Platforms: PS4

Supported Players: 4

Towerfall Ascension is by no means a relaxing game. It is highly competitive, although capable of supporting co-op and local versus play. Its premise is simple: aim and fire arrows at your enemies. You’d be surprised how long you keep playing this game once you get going.
