Overcooked 2

Overcooked 2 is a true example of how to make a good sequel. By building upon the core idea and improving that experience, Overcooked 2 perfectly captures what was so great about the first game and makes no missteps in continuing that trend. Overall it may just be the best co-op game to come out of 2018. Did we mention it now has online multiplayer?

Overcooked 2 is available for the PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One (Steam, Amazon, Best BuyGameStop).

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man - 16

It’s a great year for Spider-Man with movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse coming this month. A great video game gift for Spider-Man fans is Marvel’s Spider-Man. There’s a lot to love, especially its tight controls that make swinging, freerunning, crawling and fighting very enjoyable. The story captures the struggle of Peter Parker’s personal life and superhero life. New York City is another character of its own, making it a very fun playground for a superhero. With that said, Insomniac Games knocks it out of the park with Marvel’s Spider-Man and gives us the ultimate Spider-Man experience.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is available on Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop. (At the time of this writing, Best Buy has the cheaper price of $39.99.)
