Most of us are accustomed to playing with our friends online nowadays, but Overcooked 2 brings a little nostalgia with its couch co-op. You can sit down with your family or pals and run about the kitchen, trying to prepare as quickly as possible to keep your customers happy.
It sports a cheerful art style that's bursting with colour. But don't let its innocent looks fool you. If you want three stars on every level, expect a challenge. You need to work flawlessly with your fellow chefs to achieve those higher scores. There's no room for individuals in Overcooked 2. It's all about teamwork.
Human Fall Flat
Despite the title suggesting people are in danger, Human Fall Flat doesn't have any gore. Instead, it's a light-heart physics platformer where you control a wobbly person trying to solve a series of puzzles. There is great variety in the level designs, with your adventure taking you through canyons, snow-capped mountains and castles.
It's a great game to play with your family because it's endlessly funny watching the characters stagger around the screen and tumbling off ledges. But beyond that, there's plenty of satisfaction in overcoming all the obstacles each level puts in your way.
Forza Horizon 5
Racing games are usually a family favourite since you don't have to worry about bad language or anything overly gruesome. Forza Horizon 5 takes place in Mexico, giving you access to several cars of different types to race across its beautiful landscapes.
Its family-friendly status doesn't only apply to its looks. The developers have also spent a lot of time making the game accessible. You can tweak Forza Horizon 5's difficulty settings, so speeding around each course is a simple task for anyone, regardless of gaming skill.
Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection
The idea of owning a zoo has probably crossed the minds of most animals at some point. With Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection, you can realise that dream without any of the inconvenience, such as cleaning up their mess.
Instead, you can focus on the fun part, building your dream zoo. Whether you want kangaroos, tigers, anteaters or any other animal, you can make them a lovely new home in your zoo. Once opened, you will need to make sure your customers enjoy their visit so that you can expand your enclosures and get more adorable animals.
We had to include Minecraft on this list, even though your children probably know everything about it already. First released in 2011, Minecraft has become one of the most popular games ever. Why? Because it allows you to do pretty much whatever you want.
You will set off gathering materials and use them to create different structures and tools. From there, you can pretty much build anything you want. It's a great game for exploring creativity, particularly in the aptly named Creative mode that grants unlimited resources and flight to admire your work from afar.
