1Two PC gamers, one monitor

At one point in time, the idea of multiple people huddling around a PC to play a game cooperatively would have had us bemused.

Now though, PC’s are smaller and better looking. And as a result, they’re increasingly finding their way into our living rooms. Also, laptops are becoming ever more competent at running games at decent framerates, meaning they can be played anywhere.

It goes without saying then, that local co-op gaming on PC is bigger than it has ever been. There are hundreds upon hundreds of games on services like Steam that allow you to team up with a friend while sat on the couch or even on separate chairs in an office and work together as a team. Finding the best ones can be a bit of a challenge though, which is why we’ve decided to help you.

We’ve gathered together 50 of the best couch co-op games available on PC in one place. If you’re interested in playing a game locally with a friend, these are the ones you should be looking out for.
