Outstanding video and very fun list :) Agree 110% on any Lego games that you and your co op bf, gf etc likes.. and Borderlands 2 and Diablo 3 Wife and I play one of those for 5 or 6 hours every week, just unlimited fun and crazy goodness.
Sigh. Been playing wargames since the 70s. ZORK etc since 80s. MUDs/MOOs/MMOs etc since 90s.
And not being particularly gay, do not have a GF in the sense you are thinking...
About half the gamer base are women these days, including in shooters and such, but because of crap like this a lot of the younger women genderspoof.
Want to know why some of y'all don't have GFs? Check your attitudes...
Girls just wanna have fun (and be treated like human beings).

Backseat gaming is actually a really smart suggestion. For instance, my gf and I had a lot of fun alternating playing our own characters in Fallout: New Vegas. The Vats system aids those who aren't strong for players and the decision making allows for personalized, or at least differentiated playthroughs.
Man my wife and I didn't like any of these. They all had the problem where 2 players made it harder and one person could screw it up or for or slow down the other. We liked Borderlands 1, but hated 2. Only co-op games we've really liked have been Kirby Superstar and Overwatch.
Orcs Must Die 2
Diablo 3 (non pc)
Don't Starve Together
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
Backseat gaming (not a game persay, like watching or sharing a game but last one on the list)
Your points on backseat gaming are really good. I always for some reason enjoyed playing single player games during childhood watching my brother or have him watch me and since I moved out I have wanted that feeling back. My girl is starting to fill in that void with me and I love it.
I like that you made this list and look forward to seeing more like this. It's so hard to find co-op games to play. Mostly because you're trying to both find something that'll scratch that itch and that itch might be in different places for the both. So many videos just keep featuring the obvious choses. But they're so obvious they're on the front page of steam all the time and usually already been played. What people need are lists that don't feature the obvious but games you might have glossed over/ flown under the radar/ wasn't too sure about. Watching videos don't always sell the feeling of what it'll be like to play game and usually just put one of us off.
Diablo on console also “feels better” because they tuned the difficulty to be like a real video game. The PC difficulty was a fucking snoozefest, with instakill difficulty spikes that was designed to make you grind mindlessly easy content to progress.
I’ll recommend a good co op game for anyone out there, Human: Fall Flat.
That game is quality, endless laughs. It’s a physics based game where you explore different themed levels ranging from castles, to water levels with drivable boats. There’s puzzles to solve in order to progress or you can just grab nearby objects like rocks and beat the shit out of each other.
Portal 2 is far from overrated. The coop may not be as fun but the single player is a masterpiece of puzzle solving and comedic genius. Other than that, I enjoyed the video and appreciate the suggestions. 😊
Great list full of solid games. You didn't like Portal 2 but that will forever be one of my top choices. Other than those, give Ibb & Obb a try, it's a solid puzzle platformer that fits your list very well. Battleblock Theatre is another too. Lastly, shout out to Terraria which is also a wholesole game with a variety of gameplay.
Wow I was expecting to just get some new recommendations for co-op games and I was so surprised to hear how well thought out this list was! Your final note was very thoughtful, my boyfriend and I use gaming as relaxation time after work and we've definitely played some of those popular co-op games feeling like we're frustrated more than having a great time. So these recommendations we're so cool and well thought out! I really appreciate this :)
Our current favorites are Divinity, Portal Knights and Swords of Ditto!
Me and my wife love to play Ark or 7 days to die. In ark when we see a t -rex my wife gets all panicy and starts to run difrent way then the t rex and drags me along because of the distance thing :p.
7days to die i build and my wife hunts :p
I'm surprised you specifically called out Portal 2, it's one of the only games designed specifically for actual cooperation. Me and my bff (practically my video game SO) are desperate for more teamwork puzzle solving games like it. We tried We Were Here Too, and we liked it, but that was mostly an exercise in describing oddly shaped symbols.
As a sidenote, that feeling you mention of having let your partner down, we've definitely experienced that: it's not fun, but going through the whole range of victories and defeats with your s.o. is valuable to intimacy and emotional development. Facing that small hurdle isn't fun, but getting over it together teaches you to communicate in a healthy way despite unpleasant emotions.
This video was great! However, each time you ended up explaining how your partner felt or what she thought about something, I found myself wishing we could hear all of that from her directly in her own words.
