Growing up was Nintendo no question. Sure I play Minecraft Dungeons with the Mrs. but Nintendo is still the king of couch coop.

Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Wii is still my best local multiplayer console: Trauma Center series, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Wii series (Sports, Play, Fit, Party, Resort, Motion), Mario Kart Wii, Big Brain Academy, Just Dance series, We Ski / Cheer, Go Vacation, Super Smah Bros. Brawl, Mario & Sonic Olympic series, Rhythm Heaven Fever, Rock Band series, Super Swing Golf.

Can't decide my favourite between Trauma Center, Kirby's Epic Yarn and Go Vacation.
Have great memories playing multiplayer with those games.

Honorable mentions to the MegaDrive (Micro Machines, Streets of Rage), WiiU (NintendoLand, Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Game & Wario, Hyrule Warriors) and Switch (Snipperclips, PuyoPuyo Tetris, Rocket League, Flat Heroes, Luigi's Mansion 3, 51 Worldwide Games, Overcooked series, Kingdom Two Crowns).

The chaos of a 8-Player Smash game is unparalleled to me and my friends xD

Still, I do remember fondly my time with Castle Crasher on Xbox Live Arcade

Nintendo World Cup on the NES, especially with the 4 player adapter

Wii Sports and Wii Fit (and all their iterations) were also fantastic. I played them with my family for years and we had an awesome time with them. Bowling was legendary xD

Yeah I also had a lot of great times with family with Wii Sports Resort; my non-gamer Mum and Step Dad really got into the archery and bowling and flying the plane, it's one of the only games they've ever been able to really get into.

That was a big part of the magic of the Wii for me, the way it brought people together from all walks of life, young and old, gamer and non-gamer, and allowed us all to enjoy gaming together.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Man this is tough... I can't pick one... In terms of playing a campaign cooperatively, I have the most fond memories of Super Mario 3D World and Sonic Racing Transformed.
Vs would have to be Smash Bros or a party game (Mario Party, Wii Party, Raving Rabbids).


Halo 2 was maybe the best. The Co-op campaign was really fun. Getting 4 players for local multiplayer was an issue, but it was great fun too.

Warriors games are pretty fun too for a bit.

All fighting games are fun with my friend. As long as both of us have a competitive spirit and similar skill levels then the fights are always awesome. Playing online together as a team or in a lobby was also great. Street Fighter 4 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in particular.
