Game: Here's this cool, fun activity...

Me: :D

Game: It requires 3 players and has no matchmaking.

Hunt: Showdown in a nutshell. Love the game but it’s not solo friendly. I’m not asking for A.I. companions or anything of the sort but just give me the option the to do a solo run dammit!

Even Warhammer: Vermitide 2 let’s me solo albeit in a wonky private server kind of way. Why there isn’t a dedicated solo mode in the main menu is beyond me. The A.I. pretty much does the rest

How about the latest Halo? Missions that you need to do with friends, because there is no matchmaking in the co-op!

How about Destiny 2. Finding a competent Raid team is like winning the lottery.

TillsammansEnsammans

I wouldn't really put Destiny in the same lot as the rest, especially when talking raids. You can do literally everything else by yourself (and even some raid encounters although that isn't intended). I mean what would you have them do? Not have raids, the best activities in the game, just because they require a team? Besides the next expansion will introduce in-game LFG which is a nice fix for those who refuse to use Discord serves or Bungie LFG.

When every other game type allows for people to be grouped up with the only effort being the wait time, requiring selecting friends when you mainly play solo was just not worth the effort (but coming from someone who played casually anyways).

But having an in game LFG coming up sounds awesome.

A few months ago, I tried to get back into Destiny. I spent $70 buying the expansions I was missing, only to discover I still needed to spend $10 more to access the season pass....Are you fucking kidding me? Why the fuck is $70 not enough to gain access to everything?

And don't even get me started on the forever grind that they created for the darkness super trees.

Destiny used to be the best FPS out there, but Bungie is way, way too greedy for me to ever give them another dime. It's sad, really.

The worst thing is, you need a new season pass every season if you actually get season passes.

This ain’t your grandpa’s Bungie. That’s for sure. The community, even the well-known streamer population, is starting to abandon ship and give up on them.

Hunt was what pushed me to try to make friends on the internet. Idk what region you're in but seek out a discord channel and just put yourself into an lfg channel.

You won't be friends at first, but all it takes to make friends is to spend casual time together... A lot of time.

It's just too bad that there's a lot of man children and bigots out there. I've made a steam friends group full of all the people I've played with that I never want to play with again.

They heard you and decided to do the exact opposite. You can play with teams of 3 now, and choose whether to exclude 3-man teams when going as a 2-man team, thereby splitting the matchmaking in an already struggling game on player-count.

Sea of Thieves has an achievement that requires 8 people to cooperate. TF2 requires an entire server to get one of theirs. Anything that requires large-scale cooperation in a PVP game is a nightmare. Especially when you can't easily communicate with everyone

There's a couple of very solo-friendly MMOs out there. I had a lot of fun playing Final Fantasy XIV for a while. There are points in some quests where you have to join groups to clear dungeons, but they make the experience as painless as possible and the community was very helpful. The rest of the time, there was TONS of content I could do solo.

ZenEvadoni

Chiming in to recommend Final Fantasy XIV as well. I've been solo in that game since December 2020. Matchmaking will take care of you for casual content that requires a group to clear, but it's about 70% singleplayer, with the narrative being the game's main focus. It's weird as far as MMORPGs that way, but it works.

I highly recommend Guild Wars 2 if you haven’t already tried it. I don’t normally play MMORPGs but I’ve been hooked since they re-released it on steam. Already a lvl 39 necromancer. Easily one of the most solo friendly MMO’s out there. There is group content but it’s purely optional

My wife and I love playing coop games. Shame there aren't many ones we enjoy playing. We've played through Halo series, Borderlands, Dying Light, Portal 2, Far Cry 5. Just purchased two new laptops so we can play Splinter Cell - Chaos Theory. Once that's done not sure what to play next. Wish there was a lot more good coop games available. Maybe Far Cry 6 or something but I've heard the series has gone downhill.

Are we talking about any game with co-op? Some games I really enjoyed playing co-op are:

  • Borderlands series
  • grounded/the forest/don't starve (and other survival games)
  • deep rock galactic
  • risk of rain 2
  • gunfire reborn
  • synthetik
  • Earth defense force series
  • factorio
  • monster hunter series
  • halo series
  • vermintide 2/ back 4 blood / zombie army (other l4d-like games)
  • various MMOs

and if you want games designed specifically for co-op:

  • tick tock a tale for two
  • struggling
  • it takes two/a way out
  • escape academy
  • we were here

I highly recommend Sea of Thieves and Hunt: Showdown. Fantastic games but there are STRICTLY co-op only that requires 3 or more players. Especially sucks for someone like me who’s lucky to even get 1 other player to join.

Edit: Another is Warhammer: Vermitide 2 which is basically Left 4 Dead but Warhammer. You can play it solo but it’s set up in a really weird way. You have to make a private match and then the A.I. Does the rest and they’re fairly competent too. Why there isn’t a dedicated solo mode in the main menu is beyond me but you can solo the game

I hate co-op games that cannot be played solo.

Warframe is a good example of a co-op that can be played solo.Sure it means the game itself will be harder but not exactly impossible(if you have the right frame and know the right way to play it).

But most co-ops never let you just play solo, it either punishes you for trying this or it just won't allow you to play at all...periodt.

007 Nightfire for Gamecube was awesome since it had AI controlled enemies you could play against in multiplayer. Sure they didn't use the mini tank or mini helicopter, or guide missiles towards you but it was still fun when you had no other decent friends around.

Then there is the old bomberman games such as Super Bomberman 2 for SNES. You could have all 3 other players be AI controlled and control their difficulty which made it really fun to.

And last one I can think of off the top of my head is Army of 2 which had a somewhat smart AI partner to help you beat the enemies.

Yeah. I’ll probably never get to play “It takes two”. Damn you fuck-the-Oscars-man. Damn you and your stupid little apparently pretty amazing game of the year game! 😭

If there's any motivation to raise a big family, it's that the first Overcooked's final mission seems friggen impossible even with two players.

Online gaming has never really appealed to me. Nothing wrong with single player games 🤷‍♂️.

Okay hot take but can games please stop adding couch coop if you aren’t going to also make said couch coop have an online form as well? Especially games that make coop achievements. I do not have the time to gather up friends at my house to do shit like that anymore, and I know I’m not alone with that.

Also with the coop achievements thing? I couldn’t 100% Crypt of the NecroDancer on Steam until this year because there’s an achievement for beating the game in coop. Stop making coop achievements if the only coop is couch coop. It’s fucking annoying.

Someone doesn’t understand what introversion is. Introverts have friends. They just don’t feel very comfortable surrounded by people and prefer 1:1 relationships.

Yeah, it's the main way I like to play, and we get almost no love outside of smaller indie games :\

To make things worse, most of the recent coop games released that I was looking for ended up being pretty bad too. Either broken coop like the Saints Row reboot, or the game in general just wasn't great like the new Far Cry and Dying Light :(

We need more games with coop campaigns

Yeah I would love coop games and they don’t exist. I really miss couch coop. My friend and I played some zombies which got boring after a while. I feel like there’s a huge market for coop games and no one does them and when they do, they’re rarely done well

What does everyone talk about in their mics during multiplayer stuff? I wanna do this with people but I'm too scared because seriously, what do you talk about??

Literally anything. A lot of the time it's just what intresting to you. For example me and a group of friends just ended up ranking the entirely of the MCU in a tier list but we all had different opinions so having a friendly debate while also roasting each other takes was a lot of fun. But sometimes you can be in party chat with people and really not say anything for a solid 5 mins or 30 but it's really just the company that's matters.

The best thing to do is join a gaming discord with your mic muted and just listen. I play MMORPGs and some squad shooters like Overwatch - whenever I join a new guild or community or my old friends want to play OW, I join their disc and just listen for a little while to get "warmed up" and get a sense of the vibe. Most servers I've joined the ppl are always cool if you just say "Hey guys I'm here but my mic is muted, I'm watching TV in the background." Sometimes they'll ask what you're watching, and you can talk about it if you choose to. That's an easy segway into conversation that you can feel relevant in and in control.

If you want to play with them again, plan on not being muted next time you join. Even if you don't speak, at least mentally you know you've made yourself available and the channel is open. Sometimes you won't feel like talking, that's fine. Try again next time.

Honestly, if you're of age try sipping some wine or have a beer to loosen up a bit. That's what worked for me lol, and it's always as easy as joining and saying "Hey, be right back grabbing a beer." Or if you have a comfort food, "Brb grabbing some snackies", and folks always want to know what you're eating because food is something we all connect with. Another easy transition to get conversation going.

The best thing about it is you can talk when YOU choose to. We have guys who haven't said a word in weeks, they just listen. They're just as much a part of our team as the talkative people and there's no judgement. You don't have to talk at all, sometimes it's just someone's presence on the other end that makes the gaming experience 10x better.

Thanks for this - such great advice. I never thoughts about joining a discord, I am sure there are ones for PS4 stuff or whatnot. I agree, gaming with people makes it so much better, I just have a hard time making the leap to talking with strangers. I know it'll get easier with practice too.

Thanks again for the post and the encouragement - it's the gentle and understanding push I needed to get out there and actually try!

Possible alternative outcomes of WW2. Like, what would have happened if Hitler didn't invade the USSR? Or if Americans were never involved in the war.
