What better way to celebrate love than by fighting the forces of anti-love? Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is one of the ultimate co-op games, forcing both players to rely on each other to succeed. Players navigate a variety of levels in a spaceship that both control, with one player controlling the ship's steering while the other handles its weapons, shields, and other duties. Along the way, you'll encounter enemies to fight, creatures to save, and more.
Work together to run one of the most hectic kitchens you'll ever see in this co-op game that supports up to four players. The orders fly in fast, and you'll need to work with your partner and establish an efficient system to handle it all.
Don't Starve: That's the name of the game, figuratively and literally. This one is all about surviving the long nights of cold winters, where you'll forage for food, find shelter, protect yourself from the wild, and keep fighting to live as long as you can. With Don't Starve Together, you can even have a partner to help you out.
Most games on this list are easy to play and digest. Divinity: Original Sin 2 isn't most games on this list. You can jump into this truly epic turn-based RPG alongside your bae on Valentine's Day. You can each get your own character to enjoy, each with their own unique responses to all the NPCs and their own decisions to be made.
In this creative survivalism game, you and your companion will do whatever it takes to stay alive. You'll build your own fortress to defend yourself from the zombie horde, using skills, perks, and items you craft to help you do just that.
The newest entry in the Borderlands franchise expands on everything the previous games did, giving you the chance to partner up with your loved one and once again go vault hunting on Pandora. Collect weapons, play with some brand new classes with their own powers, and enjoy the crude humor that only Borderlands can bring.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 can be perfect for a couple to play no matter which mode you like. Mow down waves of mindless freaks in Zombies, try to be the last duo standing in Blackout, or race to the insane killstreaks in Multiplayer.
Everyone loves Minecraft, and it's always better with others. When you're dropped into a blocky world that can be transformed any way you want, where do you even start? Cuddle up with your partner and figure it out!
What kind of crime-fighting superhero doesn't have a sidekick? Have yourselves a cute little love fight over who gets to be the boss and then head into Chronopolis to play as Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and more.
What better game to play with your significant other on Valentine's Day than one that you literally can't play without them? A Way Out puts you in the shoes of a prisoner hankering for a breakout. He has to enlist the help of a fellow prisoner, however, and that's when your trust is really tested.
Similar to games like Gang Beasts or Party Panic, Human: Fall Flat allows players to inhabit a generic character that can't do much besides cling to things. Instead of fighting each other, though, you'll be working together, using your very limited abilities to solve puzzles and make it through increasingly complex levels. It's an excellent game for two people to sit down and get through and will provide a ton of laughs as each of you undoubtedly fall off a ton of ledges.
