I’ve been playing more games than ever since I moved to Windows, and I’ve been half-joking that gaming is my social life right now. I used to think of gaming is a massive waste of time and an expensive one at that, but the pandemic has completely changed my opinion. Co-op games have kept my sanity intact now that I rarely see friends in person.
The game that opened the floodgates for me was Animal Crossing because it let me visit my friends virtually. It really showed me that Zoom isn’t the only way to get together these days.
I’ve collected quite a handful of co-op games since then. My favorites so far are:
- Deep Rock Galactic
- Moving Out
- Portal 2
- Among Us
