Valentine’s Day. A celebration of love whether it be your S.O, family, or friends. Some choose to celebrate with flowers, a meal out, binge watching their favourite TV shows, or even playing a video game together. 

If you or your S.O. loves gaming, we’ve got you covered with our list of the Top 10 best games to play this Valentine’s Day.

We’ve made sure to include a range of games that will work for all skill levels, so you can be sure you and your S.O will have a ball of a time!

1) It's better together: It Takes Two

It Takes Two released on March 26th 2021 and won the “Game of the Year” award at The Game Awards 2021. Needless to say, It Takes Two is a spectacular co-op game featuring smooth, seamless controls, a compelling storyline and a continuous stream of laughs. 

It Takes Two gameplay

Don’t worry if you or your partner aren’t too well-versed in game mechanics or struggle with controls, because It Takes Two features mechanics that allow players of varying skill levels to enjoy gaming together. Alongside this, you only require one copy of the game to play (both in person and online.)

The game centres around a clashing couple, May and Cody, who are turned into dolls by a magic spell. Trapped, they’re reluctantly challenged with saving their relationship by the mysterious and suave love guru Dr. Hakim. 

If you and your S.O. haven’t had the chance to play It Takes Two, we highly recommend it!

It Takes Two is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

2) Investigate together: Luigi’s Mansion 3

Luigi's Mansion 3 features Mario's sheepish little brother, who is tasked with rescuing his friends from a haunted hotel. Although the two-player mode doesn't become available until an hour or so into the story, the rest of the game transforms into an easily accessible co-op campaign that you can enjoy with your S.O.

If your partner isn't too well-versed in game mechanics or struggles with the controls, they can control "Gooigi" which is a Luigi clone. Although having a lower health pool, Gooigi has infinite lives. This gives your significant other the freedom to fool around and even die a couple of hundred times without making you both restart levels and boss fights. Gooigi is an essential part of solving many of the game's puzzles, so your partner can feel safe in dying but won't be left twiddling their thumbs whilst you do all the work.

The game's artwork is particularly charming, and Luigi's adorable looks of terror add an extra layer of charm. And because it's broken up into clearly defined levels, it's a game you and your partner can drop and revisit at your leisure.

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

3) Space Bunnies: Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a rare space-themed video game that is both exciting and adorable. Anti-Love is threatening to destroy the universe, so you and your S.O. are charged with navigating the mazes of the galaxy in a neon battleship you both control. You can divvy up the tasks between yourself and your partner; steering the ship, defend with weapons, activating shields, and more.

As you progress through various stages, you'll have to rescue space bunnies, avoid knocking into the terrain like rocks or lasers, and battle baddies along the way.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is perfect for this time of year because you and your partner really have to work as a team to progress. It's definitely a good idea to go into the game blindly together so you can find your space legs together!

Once you get the hang of the basics, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is honestly a very fun and enjoyable game for two. It is particularly refreshing as it is a nice change of pace compared to other highly competitive couch co-ops.

Platforms: Linux, Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One

Snipperclips is a Nintendo Switch launch title. Another co-op where communication is one of the most important mechanics, this game is perfect for Valentine's with your S.O. There are no time limits, bad guys to fight, or too much pressure.elds, and more.

You play as little pieces of paper trying to figure out a puzzle. You can cut each other into other shapes and interact with objects in game, as well as communicate with each other to solve the level. If however, you're feeling a bit competitive, you can play Blitz mode to try and complete challenges and puzzles before your partner. The physical version of the game, Snipperclips Plus, includes all DLC released since launch (which has been a bit of time, now).

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Sorry for the cliché, but it’s never been truer than when playing Overcooked with your significant other. While it was one of Polygon’s best local multiplayer games of 2016, Overcooked features fast-paced cooking action that can get incredibly heated when one of you slips up (which you will, a lot). If you can handle it, though, there’s nothing that will bring you closer together than getting through an especially hectic dinner rush.

Whether you enjoy cooking in real life or not, it's hard to resist the frenzied fun that is Overcooked! 2. The game forces you and your partner to work together as cute creature-chefs preparing meals from start to finish. While chopping, cooking, plating, and serving food may not sound difficult, don't be fooled—Overcooked! 2 is quite challenging, especially if you're new to the game.

Single-player mode is difficult for a number of reasons, but two-player couch mode kicks it into high gear because you and your partner have to figure out how you work best together around the kitchen. Who's chopping the fish for sushi? Who's ready to plate the rice when it's done cooking? Who's dodging vehicles, jumping across gabs on hot air balloons to grab that final ingredient? There's a lot to figure out, and you must do so while the clock is ticking, and do it well.

Overcooked gameplay

Overcooked! 2 is most certainly a favourite here at Fierce PC, and we know you'll love the challenge too!

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Amazon Luna

6) Be Prepared: Cuphead

Cuphead actually becomes harder in co-op, since bosses have more health and having both Cuphead and his buddy Mugman onscreen can distract from your focus. But like all good Difficult Games, it rarely feels cheap, so conquering each battle brings a pleasant rush of catharsis.

Cuphead is probably one of the most difficult games I have ever played. It actually becomes even harder in co-op, because bosses have more health. Not only that, but having both Cuphead and his pal Mugman on screen can distract from your focus. However, although Cuphead can be incredibly difficult to master, the rush of winning a boss fight is incredibly moreish, and can be worthwhile working together with your S.O. to defeat foes.

If you and your partner are in the mood for a 2D shooter and up for a challenge, Cuphead is the perfect option this Valentines day.

Platforms: Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, macOS, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4

7) Disarm them all: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

You’re alone in a room with a bomb. Your partner, the “Expert”, has the manual needed to defuse it. But there’s a catch: the Expert can’t see the bomb, so you'll need to talk it out – fast!

Put your puzzle-solving and communication skills to the test as you and your S.O. race to defuse bombs quickly before time runs out!

While each bomb is procedurally generated, there is a slight risk of things getting stale if you and your partner play through enough disposals. Playing locally also means avoiding the temptation to cheat and look where you're not supposed to. However, if you play Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes the way it was intended, and you've got yourself a fun puzzle game to play this valentines.

Platforms: Android, Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, Linux, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One

8) Hysterical fun: HUMAN: FALL FLAT

Human: Fall Flat can feel like an experiment as much as a fully realized product at times, but it's almost fundamentally funny, and its slapstick is only amplified when played with another person. Like Octodad or Gang Beasts before it, much of its humour comes from its deliberately wonky movement and physics.

Simply getting your rubber-limbed avatar—known as "Bob"—from point A to B provides a sense of accomplishment as a result; when the stakes are raised and you manage to bumble him through the increasingly complex puzzles the game throws at you, that sense is multiplied.

Human: Fall Flat takes the sandbox approach to platformer design: each level has an end goal to reach, but there's a tremendous amount of freedom in how you get there, and there's no way to outright "fail" in between

Platforms: Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS

Though Portal 2 is nearly nine years old, those who’ve never managed to give it a shot will find that it has aged gracefully.

It has separate campaigns for solo and co-op play: the latter is looser from a narrative standpoint, but it still exemplifies the sharp humour and intelligently layered, exquisitely created puzzles for which the series is famous. The game does well to force you and your partner into genuinely communicating; working out the portal placement and sequencing for each puzzle room should always feel like a team effort.

The base game gradually ramps up the complexity at a pace that teaches you how to think without sprinting too far out ahead of you, but if you play on PC, you can download a number of community-made maps for a greater challenge. Portal 2 is definitely a game to play with your S.O. if you have never played before and would like a funny yet challenging experience to share together.

Platforms: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

In Moon Hunters, you play as ancient heroes whose mythology is being written in real-time by the decisions you make in the game. Billed as a “personality test RPG,” this gorgeous little roguelike is fun and engaging, if frustratingly short. It might be a perfect date night game, though, since you’ll get the satisfaction of playing through a whole story together as well as learning a little more about each other’s decision-making styles.

Moon Hunters cover art

In Moon Hunters, let's up to four players choose from one of six different characters, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The game's endings can differ widely depending on the choices the characters make during the journey. This is what makes it an ideal date night game, but great for replay-ability as you and your S.O. can return to Moon Hunters again if you want to explore alternate endings.

Platforms: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

BUY NOW from the Switch store, or BUY NOW from the Steam Store.
