Most video games are about what happens on the screen. Or that's what it's easy to assume. However, the best multiplayer experiences are as much about interactions between the other players in the real world. Whether you are set next to you opponent on the sofa, or chatting to them online, deciding whether to trust them and how best to get the better of them is a lot of fun.
The games in this list, take this aspect of all video games, and make it a central part of the play. It includes games where you need to pause the action and talk about who's the murderer, like Among Us
. Or they require you to talk to each other to decipher how not to die like Keep Talking and Nobody Dies
. Then there are games where you need to talk to co-ordinate your strategy like Wilmot's Warehouse
and Conduct Together
Video games where you adventure into a harsh setting, try your hardest to survive and slowly develop your abilities but then inevitably die are often called Rogue-likes. This is because one of the first games that offered this style of play was called Rogue.
These are interesting games for families, not only because their difficult nature leads to shorter sessions, but also because they foster perseverance and coping with losing. After dying you are sent back to some sort of central village where you can choose upgrades for your next attempt. The incentive to play again once you have been killed is usually that you start with some more equipment or skills.
In this way, by belligerence and a slowly learned understanding of how the game world works and how best to survive, you incrementally get a bit further each time you play. Here are some really good roguelike games for families:
Video games usually let us step into the role of the hero. Sometimes our heroics result in many henchmen or even innocent bystanders getting killed. But our hearts are thought to be in the right place.
The games on this list, however, are all great examples of where you intentionally ruin other people's days. Whether that's playing the blood sucking alien in Carrion
or just stealing, breaking and hiding things in Untitled Goose Game
it's both intriguing and entertaining to not play by the usual moral rules of the game.
Then there are games where you think you are doing things for the right reason but this turns out not to be the case, like Braid
or Spec Ops The Line
. Or games where the slow drip of doubt builds until you regret your actions, like Shadow of the Colossus
Play is more fun when it’s shared. This is as true about video games as it is when building a massive sandcastle on the beach or playing hopscotch in the playground. Finding brilliant team games is a great way to involve more people in the fun and share the experience together as a family. More experienced players naturally help novices contribute to the team.
Along with teamwork, the games I’ve selected here use the fact that players are all sitting next to each other.
These are games where players take on different roles in order to complete unusual tasks. The fun is often as much about the conversations (and arguments) that happen in the room as what’s happening on the screen.
