Looking for a good couch Co-op game to play with my wife

16 replies 269 views Edited Aug 26, 2013

First off, my wife is not a gamer, she enjoys facebook games but she has agreed to try it out, Which is where you guys come in...

 

I'm looking for a couch co-op game that my wife and I can get into.  I doubt she'd play a shooter.  I honestly don't know what she'll play, so feel free to bounce any ideas you have off of me.

If she is new to console gaming you may want to start easy off with a lego game, maybe a little boring but easy controls.

Actually thats not a bad idea.  The lego series is fun, but easy to learn and get into.  Thanks for the suggestion peck.

 

Would definatly welcome more suggestions if you guys have any.

Portal 2.  It's pretty much the game that got my wife interested in PS3 gaming.

My wife is also a non gamer and the three games that brought her into it were LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and The Cave.

...I get the feeling you've played maybe on LEGO games. Some of them are as engrossing as any other AAA game, whilst others are boring or downright frustrating. Not every entry was Indy 2.

mark cerny was saying knack will have a coop feature where you could involve the to wife or kid. Its kinda like a sidekick like sonic having tales and it won't effect your gameplay.
