Some games are great to play alone. Others are fun to play online and with fellow gamers. Then there are the awesome games that anyone can pick up and play. We’re not talking about Resident Evil on hard mode here, we’re talking about games for non-gamers. Games that someone who’s only ever played bowling on the Wii can still pick up and play as part of a duo or group without too much of a problem.

You guys worked together and tackled the game that you could barely beat yourself the first time around. What are the best games to play with your boyfriend, girlfriend, or plain old friend who’s a non-gamer?

Or do you prefer multiplayer games were you can take your friend down? Forget about that nice and friendly co-op mode and throw down in one of the Soulcalibur arenas. It’s all fun and games until their button mashing throws you off the side and they win with a lucky ring out.

Whether you prefer playing with your inexperienced friends or against them, what’s your favorite multiplayer game for non-gamers. Vote up the most accessible group games and vote down the ones that will end in heartbreak for gaming novices.
