The Nintendo Switch and cooperative games go together like chips and gravy, strawberries and chocolate, coffee and anxiety – you get the point. Local co-op in particular is where the Switch shines brightest. Just you, some family or friends, and a video game you'll all enjoy.

Speaking of which, games with local co-op are plentiful on the market but these five are absolute necessities to anyone who fancies playing with a pal. Just be sure to hide any items that can be thrown in fits of rage or frustration… just in case.
