Looking for a few games to play with your significant other? There are oodles of games that have been developed with couples in mind, and we don't necessarily mean first-person shooters! Sometimes, it's just nice to boot up a great game on your Xbox, snuggle up with your special someone, and explore an amazing world together. That's why we're ranking all the best Xbox games for couples.

Finding the right couples game means taking into account what you both enjoy doing. If building and exploring a vast world sounds fun, give Minecraft a try — or, even better, check out Minecraft Dungeons. It features a more hack-and-slash approach to traditional building, making it a great multiplayer game to pick up. If you and yours enjoy a little light competition, why not give games like Rocket League a try? It's a super fun sports game and it's a blast to play with someone else

With so many fun and good Xbox One games for couples, there's no shortage of options. If there's a great game you and yours love to play that isn't currently listed, add it below. And don't forget to vote up your favorites!
