Why do I always have to be Luigi?
So, Mario Kart is fun. . . but it’s even more fun when your competition is sitting next to you on the couch. The stakes are higher. Besides trash talk, there’s just the shared experience, the togetherness.
Many years ago, after playing Baldur’s Gate with my then-boyfriend, it felt like we’d really been through something. We had used teamwork to kill those monsters.
When it comes to multi-player, though, I prefer party games. While any game can lead to hurt feelings, games that require actual coordination and planning are too stressful. Give me your Mario Karts, your Mario Parties, your Super Smash Brothers (featuring Mario), your Just Dances.
What mulitplayer games do you like?
