    We used to love modern warfare 2, but we had 4 screens and 4 consoles in the room. As for co op on one console, I'll have to go with Mario Kart. I loved it on the n64, gamecube, wii, and wii u/switch. Never failed to make everyone competitive

    +1 to overcooked.

    Mario Kart is still a winner, regardless of the platform. And personally I'm a big fan of Hell Divers, sadly the other half isn't so much and playing with randoms online want so fun...

    Another vote for overcooked, Drawful 2 is good fun too.

    Not sure if this counts as couch co-op but Keep Talking & Nobody Explodes is great fun too. One of you can see the pc/tv/vr/tablet screen which shows a bomb. The rest of you have a printed (yes, you print it onto dead trees and everything,) bomb diffusal manual. The person with the screen describes the bomb, those without try to figure out how to disarm it before the timer runs out. Hilarity ensues.

    It's on every platform under the sun and fairly cheap, I strongly recommend giving it a go. Introduced a friend to it who works in China teaching English. He now uses it as part of the course.

    Not strictly co-op, but my young sons love playing Atari Combat (tanks and planes) on my woodgrain VCS

    Are any of those couch co-op (or even couch Vs) games?

    Re: QOTW: What are the best couch co-op games?

    For us its usually one of the Jackbox games (especially drawful), Overcooked or on the xbox for Minecraft or Halo (or via a computer each or steam streaming). It used to be Mario Kart, but it got too competitive.

    Re: QOTW: What are the best couch co-op games?

    Mario Kart probably wins just because it's so accessible. Don't tend to have many people close to me that are "gamers", so that's about the best we can get away with.

    About 5 years after buying it, I'm still waiting for a friend to play Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime with me

    Overcooked if you want an excuse to throw a controller at something/someone
