So, the other night, I was playing Overwatch, and my boyfriend (who isn’t a massive gamer) came downstairs and watched for a bit. After a while, he asked if there was any way for us to play it split-screen. He wanted to give it a try, because it reminded him of Timesplitters, but didn’t necessarily want to go it alone. And of course, there’s no split-screen, so we kind of gave up on that idea.
(But wasn't Timesplitters the best though?)
It got me thinking about lots of other games – and the truth is, there are very few games on my PS4 that offer local co-op (aside from the Lego games), despite there being plenty of games out there that offer online multiplayer.
Nintendo are obviously pretty good for it most of the time, and we do have a Wii U and will probably get a Switch at some point. But sometimes, you don’t fancy playing something cutesy – you want to shoot something in the face!
Does anyone have any recommendations for current-gen games that offer local co-op? Or do you have any great co-op stories to share from way back when?
