The best co-op games for PC

As much as we PC gamers love the quiet isolation of an RPG or the thrill of a competitive shooter, nothing beats the joy of playing games cooperatively with friends. For many, our most memorable gaming moments are only meaningful because someone else was there to laugh, cry, or celebrate with. With that in mind, you’d think co-op games would be more common, but it’s rare to discover a game that everyone owns, everyone likes, and everyone has time to play. The best co-op games on PC are often ones that have been around for years that you’re just finding now.

Here’s our most up-to-date collection of the best co-op games for PC—the kind of games you can get all over with pals. Read through the list and you’ll find deep, seemingly bottomless games like Warframe, breezy co-op adventures like It Takes Two, and plenty of more casual co-op games anyone can get into.
