Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2

The action atmosphere reminiscent of the old days and the adoption of the Side Scroller structure are one of the features that highlight the Guns, Gore and Cannoli series. Although the first game also offers a co-op option, only local co-op support is available. If you’re looking for a short old-school action experience with your friends, it definitely deserves a shot.

Side Scroller is a genre where video games are discussed from the side camera point of view. For the most part, players move from left to right of the screen.

Snowrunner

Described as the “Dark Souls of car games” by some players, Snowrunner is one of the best co-op games as it promises a realistic and challenging simulation experience. While exploring difficult terrains with your friends, you can do the tasks given to you and enjoy the feeling of driving.

Dying Light

Since the zombie content gained its popularity, it is a type of content that we have encountered in movies, games and many branches. Just like in the movies, the number of games that have managed to do an original job in the game world is quite a few. This is where Dying Light comes into play. 

It stands out with its open world consisting of a huge parkour, and manages to draw the player into its own atmosphere. How would you like to jump from roof to roof with your friends in this world where zombies roam?

Gears of War 4

Gears of War 4, the fourth game in the main series, may be indispensable for those looking for an action game with a third-person camera angle. Although the series, which has a very interesting story in itself, comes with a fully co-op option with all its games, unfortunately, Gears of War 2, 3 and Judgment are only released for Xbox, making it difficult to start the series from the beginning. With the fourth game in the series, the new main characters and shifting the focus of the story can make it a good starter game.

Grounded

Grounded has a really interesting concept. Have you ever imagined a world where you are the same size as insects? Grounded offers exactly that to the player. The production, in which we take part as a human trapped in the dimension of an ant, can be a good alternative for those looking for a different survival game experience.

Aragami

Aragami, a game that has discovered its own gameplay structure and style, promises players a co-op story experience built on secrecy. If you like the stealth genre and are keen to discover new indie games, Aragami is one of the best co-op games for you. It should also be noted that the second game of the series has also been released and has a more innovative approach.

Human: Fall Flat

If you have a group of friends of at least three or four, we can safely say that Human: Fall Flat can be a source of pure entertainment for you. Human: Fall Flat has a structure where you solve tiny puzzles by collaborating with your friends and can make you laugh almost every minute. It manages to gain an important place in the list of the best co-op games with its physics base and fun gameplay.

Project Zomboid

Project Zomboid, a highly detailed survival game with its isometric camera angle and open world, allows you to embark on this adventure with your friends. This game, where the main focus is not on ‘fighting’, but on survival, is a great option for those who are looking for a simulation-like zombie game.

It Takes Two

Bringing a breath of fresh air to co-op games with A Way Out, Josef Fares and his team won the ‘2021 Game of the Year‘ award last year with It Takes Two. The production, which deals with the problems of a small family, promises a unique adventure to the players. It is one of the most important names in the list with its fun puzzles and the sweet mechanics it constantly offers to the player.

Sea of Thieves

If the pirate theme interests you, it would not be wrong to say that Sea of Thieves is unrivaled in this regard. If you have a group of at least three or four friends, Sea of Thieves is a great option for you.

With your huge pirate ship and your crew of friends, cruising the oceans towards treasures accompanied by music is as enjoyable as it sounds. On this journey, you will also have to contend with other players and the artificial factors that the game has to offer.

Stardew Valley

We can describe Stardew Valley, which was developed by a single person and released in 2016, as one of the most entertaining productions you can play with your friends. The production, which attracts attention with its pixel-by-pixel sweet graphics, draws the player into himself with its detailed gameplay system and makes him adopt the farm life. The production, where you can do many things, including farming, mining, fishing and marriage, is almost a life simulator.

Unravel Two

Unravel Two, which has very sweet graphics and a unique gameplay theme, has a feature that distinguishes itself from other games on the list. It only supports the ‘Local co-op’ option and unfortunately does not enable the option to play together online from two different devices in different locations.

The production, which you can play together on a single screen when you meet with your friend or with a member of your family, promises a fun journey. This game, in which our main characters are ‘yarns’, also has a very relaxing structure.

The Ascent

The Ascent, which manages to fascinate the players with its magnificent cyberpunk atmosphere and graphics, is a game where bullets fly in the air. The production, which had quite a lot of optimization problems especially on the PC side during its first release, seems to have recovered profusely with the updates that have come in the intervening months. Although it doesn’t have a very interesting story, it can draw you in with its fun combat mechanics and perfect cyberpunk atmosphere.

Trine Enchanted Edition

Despite being released in 2009, Trine Enchanted Edition is a platform game that stands out with its physics-based puzzles. This series, which has four games in total, Trine Enchanted Edition, Trine 2. Complete Story, Trine 3: Artifacts of Power and Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, offers a fun gameplay with a fully co-op option. The Trine series, where each character has special abilities and plays a critical role in progress, can be a very good choice for players who love platform games.
