In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, what’s your favorite couch co-op game? It could be something you’ve played with a romantic partner, one of your closest friends, a family member, or whoever.
My pick is pretty easily one of the Wii U’s lone bright spots, Super Mario 3D World. Along with Super Mario 3D Land, the game is a stark departure from its series predecessors. However, the added co-op in 3D World helps it stand as one of my favorites, both in the series and all time. At first, I loved the game playing it solo on launch, but lamented the series’ gradual departure from nonlinear levels. It was not until a few years later, when I tried the co-op with my girlfriend, that I realized how awesome the game was. It’s a magical, encapsulating time. She’s not big into games, but Super Mario 3D World was a different story. We got hooked, grabbed nearly every star coin, and were well on our way to Champion’s Road when my roommate rudely (I jest) took his Wii U back to his hometown. Since then, we’ve not-so-patiently waited on a Switch port so that we can dive in all over again.
