The Best Local Co-Op Games For Xbox One

Updated March 19, 2020 1.1k votes 185 voters 14.5k views32 items

When it comes to online gaming, there's no denying that the Xbox One is king. The top-notch performance of Xbox Live and the strong library of online-multiplayer games is why so many people continue to buy an Xbox One to this day. However, not everyone wants to play online. For those who prefer hooking up a second controller over a WiFi router, the Xbox One is there for you. With the help of your votes, let's rank the best local co-op games on Xbox One right now. 

While first-person shooters like Halo and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are best known for their chaotic multiplayer, they also support local co-op for onlookers who want to join in on the fun. For those who prefer a third-person perspective, Gears of War offers exhilarating gunplay through its team-based story campaign and various multiplayer modes. Shoot 'em up lovers will get a real kick out of Cuphead, a brutal-yet-addicting 2D side-scroller that looks like a cartoon from the 1930s. For younger players, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 offers simple, oddball fun that anyone can love. 

The ranked list below features all the best local co-op Xbox One games that are hot right now - don't forget to vote up your favorites and even add games to the list if they're not already here!
