Borderlands: Legendary Collection

Fight your way through hordes of enemies on alien planets with an absurdly large number of weapons.

“Borderlands: Legendary Collection” includes three complete games (and all available DLCs): “Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition”, “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel” and “Borderlands 2”. In the first installment of the series, you travel to Pandora as one of four mercenaries searching for a mysterious chamber with alien technology. “Borderlands 2” continues the story and confronts you with supervillain Handsome Jack, who tries to seize the valuable treasures of Pandora. “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel” then tells the background story of Handsome Jack and is set between the other two parts.

“Borderlands” is THE classic loot shooter, which means: there are a lot of enemies to kill and even more items to collect. All weapons and upgrades are randomly generated, resulting in a huge number of possible combinations—ranging from very deadly to hilariously absurd. At the beginning of each game you can choose from several characters that offer unique abilities. Whether you prefer to specialize in ranged combat or use drones to attack head on, there is a suitable class for every playstyle.

The story of “Borderlands” isn’t particularly exciting, but it’s still entertaining thanks to quirky humor and weird characters. The missions can be repetitive and the sheer mass of weapons can be overwhelming at times, but despite this you can expect hours of fun in split screen mode with “Borderlands: Legendary Collection”. If you like the genre and have a big enough screen (> 50 inches), you can’t go wrong with buying this collection, especially because it includes so much content.

Why you should play it:

  1. Great coop shooter with ridiculous amounts of weapons, interesting classes/skills and some weird humor.
  2. Includes three full games and all available DLCs, even the first one is still worth playing thanks to some improvements.

Please note: All “Borderlands” games are available for PC on Steam, but local coop only works on consoles.

About us

Great couch coop games are hard to find? Not anymore!

We love couch coop games. Nothing beats the joy of sitting in the same room, playing some fun games and experiencing the reactions of your friends first hand—especially during a pandemic, when you’re more often at home with your partner, family members or roommates. Sure, online multiplayer modes can be fun, too, but couch coop has always been the best type of multiplayer games for us.

If you are like us, you play local multiplayer games on a regular basis, either with your kids or your friends. Every platform has some couch coop classics, like “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and “Super Mario Party” on Nintendo Switch or “Sackboy: A Big Adventure” on PS5. While these couch coop games can be played over and over again, you may want to try something new from time to time. So, where do you find interesting, new titles? Sometimes you get great recommendations from friends, but most of the time you need to do your own research.

Most game stores like Steam, PlayStation/Microsoft Store or Nintendo eShop offer categories for local multiplayer games. However, they either feature just a handful of new games or list thousands of entries. Websites for couch coop games do exist, but they try to list them all, even the not-so-good ones. Gaming related blogs and magazines write about couch coop games from time to time, but it’s not their main subject. You probably don’t want to search on the internet for hours and hunt for hidden gems. You want to find great, new games without the hassle. That’s why we’ve came up with the idea for Couch Coop Favorites.

We create lists with handpicked couch coop games—filterable by platform, player number and relevant features. On this website you can quickly find new games which have been tested by people like you. Save time on researching, spend more time with friends and family.

We are two people who love couch coop games

We are Tabea und Patrick, both in our mid-20s and from Northern Germany. We have a deep passion for couch coop games and did a lot of research on the subject in our student days. We don’t know all titles, but we certainly know a lot of excellent games for different platforms and audiences. We regularly play games, but we still identify as casual gamers. We believe that not every gaming related site needs to look like it has been made for stereotypical gamers. That’s why we’ve decided to and make this site look friendly and approchable.

Our mission is simple: We want to bring joy to people looking for good couch coop games and we want to support indie developers, too.

We personally test every game

All games listed here are handpicked by us. We’re not paid by developers to feature their games. Developers may send us their games for free, but this doesn’t influence our opinon about these games. If we list a game, we genuinely like it. It’s that simple. No ads, no affiliate links, just good games.

Are you working on a couch coop game?

If you’re working on a couch coop game, feel free to send us a short email with a link to your press kit and a few codes. To be able to test a game properly, we use multiple platforms (PC and at least one console, if possible). Currently, we prefer to test on Steam (Windows/Ubuntu) and on Nintendo Switch (EU/Germany). Please understand that we cannot publish a review for every game. As our time is limited, we are unable to test any betas or games in “Early Access”. Additionally, we priotize games which are available on multiple platforms (not Steam only).

If you’re not sure wether your game is “good enough” or if you haven't been feeling very confident lately, please consider reaching out anyway. We are regular people, just like you, and we try to answer every email!

Know a great game or found a typo?

Regardless of whether you’re an (indie) game developer or a fan of couch coop games, we’d be happy to hear from you. Feel free to send us an email or start a conversation on Twitter! 😊 🎼
