Sometimes you don’t want to play a game by yourself; sometimes you want to have a good time with a friend. For the purposes of this list, we stuck to games that don’t typically fall under the category of competitive multiplayer shooters like Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Rainbow Six Siege. The games below give a great co-op experience without the threat of random strangers mowing you down and possibly ruining the fun. Of course, these are all playable on PS4 or PS5.

Borderlands 3

Love or hate the series’ trademark humor, Borderlands is one of the best franchises out there when it comes to co-op play. Borderlands 3 introduces four new Vault Hunters with a variety of character builds so even if you and your friends are playing as the same character, no two will ever be alike. Whether you play as a mystical Siren or Digi-cloned ex-hitman, you’ll need some friends if you want to help save the galaxy. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition are also extremely recommendable, but we’re showcasing the third entry here as the best in the series.
