I remember there was one time I was at my friend's house and we were bored so we played a PS2 Lego Batman game or something. At first I was just watching her play and then she handed me a controller and we never progressed because all we did was beat each other for coins.
Skyrim(job), setting up hunting challenges to simul-play. IE: You, and someone who plays at the same time, set a time limit to kill as many rabbits as possible... Using 30 arrows. Comparing kills. Clearing the same dungeon and comparing loot (and clear time). Seeing how far each can get without being noticed or having a body spotted.
I remember playing Tales of Symphonia with a friend back when it first came out in my college days... I know it's technically a multiplayer game, but the only time players 2-4 can contribute anything is during combat. They're just spectators during story interactions, so I'm counting it. I hope to go back and replay it on PS3 with my wife once I finish Zestiria and Berseria. ^_^
red dead 2 is actually really fun with friends. You can roam around the open world and get mauled by a bear... or mauled by a crocodile.. or kicked by a horse and you can tie people up and throw them in rivers and then feel guilty after. It's perfect for friends :).
The entire Hitman franchise is one of the most repetitive games and *the* most underdeveloped ideas in gaming.
It gives the illusion of choice, the illusion of being a hitman. Walk here, steal outfit, go here, steal new outfit, go here, steal yet another outfit and kill target.
That's literally every Hitman game and it's a shame.
Tokyo42 does an infinitely better job and it's a glorified 8-bit title.
My best friend and I do Share Play all the time! My favorite game that I watched him play is Bioshock Infinite. As he was playing, we'd talk and try to figure out what was really going on! I was like I got to be his Elizabeth.
The Witness was great fun, me and the wife played it and had a blast. I remember playing it one evening and the mother-in-law was staying over. This is a woman staunchly against video games. But she got sucked into solving puzzles with us one evening. Such an involving game and doesn't get talked about enough! Thank you Hollie for bringing it up again!
A buddy of mine and I used to play the old dreamcast game Phantasy Star Online together. He'd actually play the game, but he also had the keyboard attachment, so I was in charge of trash talking. If anyone remembers the game or the system for chat input, it was mouse typing, letter by letter, so you can imagine the level of hilarity when some person would toss off a 2 word insult like 'u suk' and we could keep up a running commentary about how we'd banged his mom the night before, what her favorite positions were and that his dad was a cuck. It was also useful to help out the noobs who weren't a-holes. Good times.
I remember playing Assassins Creed Black Flag with a couple of friends. We'd take turns playing and set up small challenges like hunt a whale in the shortest amount of time, or take a stronghold without being spotted using only stealth kills.
I agree, games with friends, online or around your house can make it so much more fun.
For me it'd be any Resident Evil game! Me and my friend are a perfect team cause he handles the pressure better (I get totally scared) and I'm better at puzzles. It's all so fun though, can't wait for RE2!
Sorry to tell you this Dave, but Hitman fans have been calling it a puzzle game for years.
It’s not just about being sneaky; it’s about being creative, adapting and using items and the environment, a bit like an old point-and-click adventure.
The game which I remember playing with my best friend which was a single player RPG which was Enchanted Arms. When things got difficult we would swap player to give a different style of battle or fresh eyes for puzzles. But the story was so enjoyable for us that we both just got engrossed into the game even when not being the actual player.
Any game I play while my boyfriend is watching:
Me: wants to be nice to everyone, no murdering
Him: kill them!
Vampyr, red dead... he just wants me to kill everyone and so I do what I want while he acts like this little devil on my shoulder telling me to rob and kill lol
My Dad and I used to collaborate on the original text adventures on the old Apple 2 back in the day- Sheesh, almost 40 years ago now-We would trade theories and suggest ridiculous solutions to particular problems. Sometimes we would leave notes for each other if we solved something while playing solo. This continued all through the years and new gaming systems; I could definitely have used his help on The Witness, even though I muddled through on my own(except of the blasted 'secret' final challenge puzzle-last one I need for the platinum!) Anyway, I miss my dad, but treasure those memories so much!
Idea for Tuesday checkilst or Friday feature, things we did in games that made us feel creative , this could be a certain way you handled something, a unique way you played a game or something you've made that's creative maybe a level on little big planet
Omg, Hollie, I love you so much for mentioning The Witness in this video! Literally, I started the game solo but once my brother caught some gameplay, he wanted to help me solve my way through the rest of the game! And that’s what we did! He’s the only reason why I earned the Platinum and it’s one of my most treasured because we spent so many hours (inc many early morning ones) solving puzzles in this game together. Best co-op not-co-op game on the PS4, hands down.
There were 2 friends mainly that I played games with through the school years, one was on his megadrive playing Toy Story which was absurdly hard, especially stuck in the claw machine trying to find those aliens, and the Sonic games, and then his PS2 on the GTA games. My other friend was also on the Ps2 games, but different games, Burnout 1 2 & 3 were great fun, and then there was the strange co-op ones like the Conflict Desert Storm games, splitscreen, those were a lot of fun, frequently blown up by enemy tanks.
Hidden object games are great for this sort of thing. It's always helpful to have a second set of eyes on the screen when you're trying to find a butterfly that turns out to be drawn into the wood grain of a ceiling beam or something.
Used to love playing Zelda LTTP with a friend. We would take turns on dungeons. Another was sitting all day poking away at any JRPG's with friends. We could play and just chat all day long since the 90's JRPG's were mostly turn based.
Love this channel, I like Gran Turismo and GTA games, me and my mate used to do an hour each, so in shifts, and I ALWAYS ended up with the goddamed ambulance missions. Bless your heart adorable Hollie I can't do puzzle games by myself either! Spyro soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
