Video games are sometimes seen as a loner's pursuit; but truth be told, there are tons of great video games to play with friends. If you've got any more than two players at the ready for an evening (or afternoon) of Xbox One, PS4, or Nintendo Switch shenanigans, there are plenty of multiplayer video games at the ready, so everyone can get in on the action. Online co-op and multiplayer games are the perfect opportunity to show of your video gaming skills, whether it be in a team-based setting or not. From Call of Duty iterations to Borderlands 2 to Fortnite, there are a ton of options for you to pick from. So grab your favorite console, rally the troops, and get ready for some good, maybe not-so-clean, in-game fun. 

These are the best video games to play with friends.
