10 Video Games To Play With Friends

10 Games That Will Make Or Break Your Friendships

Going through hell and back with your friends can be as simply done as playing these games. You might actually just want to leave them there.


Some nights, you might think to yourself "I just have too many friendships!" To remedy this, play any of these games! If you're looking for new ways to ruin your relationships, look no further.

1. Move or Die


Move or Die will always keeping you on the go. No, literally, if you stop moving, you'll drop dead. Different puzzles and game modes keep the pace of gameplay rapid, with games where the floor slowly disappears, bombs fall randomly into a decaying landscape, and you literally stab your friends in the back with a chainsaw. Each round takes roughly 20 seconds as this chaotic game of chance will make you ruin your relationships for the sake of sweet, sweet victory.

Local and Online.

2. Brawlhalla


Brawlhalla is an easy to learn fighting game, making it accessible to a wider range of friends with its simple one button finishing moves and attacks. With an emphasis on air attacks instead of ground, you'll see yourself slapped out of the air enough times to want to slap the controller out of your friends hand. Less gamer inclined people do well, which can make you potentially resentful of your friends' newfound winnings, which you might spitefully chalk up to "beginner's luck."

3. Cloudberry Kingdom


The puzzles in Cloudberry Kingdom look easy and straightforward, but the increasingly difficult and randomly generated levels will probably have you screaming at the screen within a couple levels. (No cheating possible.) You can spend time customizing your adorable character with funny hats and capes, only to watch them burn up into lava because your "friend" jumped on the only cloud AGAIN and you have to start over.

4. Ultimate Chicken Horse


Imagine a 2-D platform game that only asks that you cross the finish line. That sounds easy, right? Now imagine that your friends will have a selection of weapons or items to either help you or kill you, though we all know with one is more likely. You'll watch your pals (enemies) effortlessly finish with a coin bonus in tow while crossbows shoot the ambition out of you and black holes drag you inches away from the end. This game will truly test how benevolent you and your friends are.

Local and Online.

5. Deceit


As the title implies, this game is about lying, specifically to your friends. Two out of your six friends will be infected, but you won't know who. To find out who is the liar, you'll have to wildly accuse your allies based on the faintest of suspicions, until the infected collect enough supplies to turn into monsters and kill you. To prevent this, you'll have to shoot your friends, which sounds bad, but your friendship will survive. (Probably).

Online only.

6. Overcooked! 2


Overcooked! 2 has you and your friends cooking quick dishes in harmony to hordes of hungry customers. Or, more likely, your friends throw your sliced chicken off the stage or don't take the rice off the stove and proceed to burn down the kitchen. While Overcooked! 2 is not nearly as stressful as other puzzle games, this fast paced and deceptively cute game masks how frustrating a kitchen can be.

Local and Online.

7. Gang Beasts


Gang Beasts is a gelatinous fighting game. You'll have to throw your friends off the level, but instead of being able to use combos and defeat your friends through practiced skill, you'll barely be able to control your own character. The floppy mechanics of Gang Beasts makes it near impossible to guess what will happen as you try to throw your friends off the stages, pro wrestler style. The jelly like controls make it just as likely that you'll kill yourself rather than your friend, making a humorous, albeit aggravating experience with friends.

Local and Online.

8. Speedrunners


Speedrunners is a particularly competitive game, in which players race through a looped stage while the screen grows smaller and smaller over time. Items like the claw (the claaaaw) and rockets will throw your pal, or you, into death as the screen closes around them. Even items like a bomb can also be used to either propel your friend forward or toss them backwards, showing how much you truly value their companionship.

Local and Online.

9. Dead by Daylight


Dead by Daylight adds a new layer to wanting to kill your friends, because one of you will be trying to do exactly that. You and three other friends will have to start generators to escape the killer. Trying to predict how your friend will hunt you down while coordinating with friends to escape will strain any relationship. If you're caught, you'll be hung on a meat hook (Texas Chainsaw Massacre style), and one of your friends will have to risk helping you to their own peril or they could just decide to leave you hanging. This dynamic of hiding and teamwork could make your group tighter through a "no man left behind" mentality or allow discord to ultimately kill everyone.

Online only.

10. Super Smash Bros.


The classic. The champion of lost friendships. No game will deteriorate a relationship faster than Smash. The recently released Ultimate features a larger roster than ever before, making it possible to be defeated by the cutest of Nintendo characters, which just makes everything so much worse. Depending on how competitive you are, watching your friend murder you with a plant can erase any good feelings in an instant.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
