The couples of this day and age have a bit of trouble agreeing on what to do. While my girlfriend is wonderful watching me play Sekiro while I watch her draw and paint, sometimes we both want to be involved. I draw with her sometimes, and she games with me other times. While I can’t help with the former, here’s what I can tell you about the latter. These are the best couple of video games to play with your girlfriend or boyfriend.

6 Best Couple Video Games You Should Play Together

Battleblock Theater

While I prefer the Castle Crashers game from Behemoth, don’t play that with your significant other. I almost got strangled for making out with the princess in front of her. Instead, play Battleblock Theater. The side-scrolling puzzle-solving co-op game with fun cartoony characters and villainous cat overlords.

What’s not to like, including the presence of Youtuber Will Stamper as the game’s narrator. The requirement of cooperation and cohesion in this brain-teasing platforming adventure is perfect for getting your synergy high.


The classic cartoon-styled 2D bullet hell did catch my artist’s attention well. The game was also a bundle of fun to play with anyone close. Why not make it a significant other? My favorite part about the game is that after beating an adamant boss, you both truly feel like you conquered hell together.

An achievement that not many games manage to replicate as well as this one. The game will also take a long time to complete unless you two are perfect.

We Were Here

We were in a cooperative puzzle-solving game but not your average side scroller. Instead, it’s a first-person game where one player takes the librarian role while another is the explorer.

This game entirely relies on communication and coordination since the librarian has to explain the solutions to the puzzles to the explorer. The perfect game to build more trust and cohesion with your loved one. Either that or a lot of frustration.

Tekken 7

Say you want a more competitive nature instead of the same old cooperative vibe. Tekken 7 is at the peak of popularity and is a great title, mainly because I find Tekken’s learning curve to be longer and easier to adapt to than other fighting games.

Plus, hey, the intensity of the matches could lead to a build-up of rage, resulting in certain…activities.

Payday 2

Don’t let the violent nature of this game fool you. Robbing a bank or holding up a jewelry store with your loved one is an exhilarating experience. The criminal nature of what you’re doing is already a tasty dose of foreplay for your love birds. But then, on top of that, the two of you have to carry each other to victory throughout the heist.

Don’t forget the thrill of success and the enormous paycheck afterward. Great game to pick up as long as you don’t turn into Bonny and Clyde afterward.


Having a huge, blocky, open world with your loved one for you and them to endlessly create and scavenge in is surprisingly therapeutic. My playthrough also made me realize and prepared me for what moving in together would be like, surprisingly enough.

Definitely a good game to pick up if you want a relaxing time in the soothing Minecraft world.
