We all have a different level of experience, ability and connection to video games. Finding a game to play with another person who has less (or more) expertise of playing can be a challenge.
This list is designed to help you find games to solve this. Some of these games, like Super Mario Odyssey
, let one player help the other. Other games, like Kingdoms
let you work together to progress with enough time for one player to help the other. Then there are games, like Affordable Space Adventure
or Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
where each player takes on a different role. Some games like Tick Tock A Tale For Two
or Get Together
let you play on separate devices and talk to each other to solve collaborative puzzles. Finally, there are single player games, like Detroit Become Human
or Return of the Obra Dinn
where one player can control things while the other makes suggestions.
Whether you are a parent playing with a gaming expert son or daughter, or a partner of someone who plays less or more games, these are a great place to find common ground.
