List Rules
Vote up the best games to play with your friends in the same room, on any platform.

In recent years, people have turned toward online co-op games as a way to come together with a few friends. While there is something fun about playing with people around the globe, you just can't beat playing with your best friends on the couch. There are numerous coop games where you can get a group together to take on a horde of zombies or find the treasure. Your team can gather around a few racing games to see who comes in first, trash-talking all the way through. 

You want a few split-screen games on deck because you and your buddies may get tired of playing the same thing all the time. It can be overwhelming trying to determine what the best multiplayer games are when you're at GameStop or Best Buy. The market is saturated with titles. Some come from well-known franchises you definitely want to have in your collection. But there are also some incredible multiplayer video games you may have never heard of before.

Luckily for you, we've gathered dozens of titles into one list, so you know which games to check out. Vote up all the best co-op games you would highly recommend, and vote down titles you have tried and weren't impressed with to help other gamers to decide what to play next.
