Video games have become such a prominent source of entertainment in recent years, going from teenage fun to experiences for anyone and everyone. With the rise in video game entertainment, you're most likely going to date someone who’s a bit crazy for games at some point. Whether you enjoy video games or not, a good couch cooperative game with your other half can spice up the stale date nights at home instead of watching the same old movies.
We've put together a handy list of the 10 best PS4 games for couples, with a wide range of genres, so you’re sure to find something to play with your partner.
10. A Way Out
A Way Out is an intense cooperative gameplay experience that requires two players. If you’re a fan of narrative-driven games such as Beyond Two Souls and Until Dawn this game will be right up your alley.
Taking on either the role of Leo or Vincent, together you must make an attempt to escape prison and avoid the law. Requiring two players for this dynamic split screen experience, you must work together to progress the story, ultimately forging an unexpected relationship that will keep you on the edge of your couch.

9. WipEout Omega Collection
This one is a pretty nostalgic throwback to one of the best racing games on the early iterations of the PlayStation consoles. If you’ve been an avid gamer all your life, you’ll remember WipEout, the gravity-defying racing game set in the future. You’ll travel at breakneck speeds as you pass players one by one to sweet, sweet victory.
The WipEout Omega Collection contains remastered versions of WipEout HD, WipEout HD Fury and WipEout 2048. Take on your other half for high speed, couch co-op race through 26 reversible circuits, using up to 46 unique ships.

8. Injustice 2
If you’re a comic book fan, or love superhero movies, this is the couch co-op game for you. Injustice 2 is the officially licensed player vs. player (PvP) game for the DC universe. With a massive roster of DC characters from Wonder Woman to Deadshot, Batman to Superman (and of course, The Joker), you’ll have a variety of choices to obliterate your other half.
With a wide range of arenas to interact with and use to your advantage, this is a great game to have you both screaming at each other, in a good way.

7. Mortal Kombat XL
If you’re a fan of fighting games and have worn out your copy of Injustice 2, fear not, as Mortal Kombat XL is here to save the day.
Fair warning, this game is extremely graphic, so if you or your other half are squeamish, you may want to give this one a miss. Think Sniper Elite graphics with pretty grotesque brutality moves.
This bone-crushing, gore-laden PvP game is a great way to let off some steam, and maybe even settle a squabble between you and your partner.

6. Hidden Agenda
Double date anyone? Maybe even triple? This couch co-op exclusive game can be played with 1-6 players, and features a heavy, thrilling story where you must capture the infamous Trapper killer.
Hidden Agenda gives each player an objective to work towards, and you can choose to work together or against each other. You and your partner can work together to solve this crime thriller and capture the Trapper killer, or work against each other, with your own hidden agenda.

5. Rocket League
This game came out of nowhere when it first released, taking the gaming world by storm. With such a bizarre concept executed so smoothly, Rocket League became a gaming phenomenon overnight, and lucky for you it has a couch co-op gameplay mode.
The basis of this game is pretty simple: it’s soccer, with cars that can jump. Oh, and the ball is huge. Sounds pretty fun right? Whilst it may be hard to get to grips with for a first-time player, you and your other half with soon be head to head trying to score goals against each other.

With up to four players you can rip into each other without threatening your relationship. Ever fancied throwing your other half into an incinerator, or in front of a moving train? I hope your answer is no, but you can do just that in this game.
Gang Beasts boasts highly customizable avatars, janky physics, and ridiculous maps, allowing you to blow off some steam and take on your partner in a digital game of rough and tumble.
