Best of 2013


Sometimes, there is nothing better than getting together with friends, online or in person, and working together toward a single goal. Together, everybody either succeeds happily or fails hilariously. With the right game, it doesn't matter the outcome; everybody has fun regardless.

Of course, as time has passed, more games have added cooperative multiplayer to their lists of features, and it often feels tacked on or unnecessary. The best co-op experiences are thoughtfully designed to enhance gameplay with more players, and in the best cases, they are the only true way to play a particular game. Plenty of great cooperative multiplayer titles released in 2013. Here are our ten favorites.

And Destructoid's 2013 best cooperative multiplayer game is...

Monaco: What's Yours is Mine

There were a lot of great cooperative multiplayer experiences this year, but no other game transforms quite like Monaco: What's Yours is Mine when adding more players into the mix.

Where it can be a thoughtful stealth game with one player, it becomes a bumbling gold rush with more, at least with inexperienced thieves.  However, with four experts at it, Monaco sings. It plays out like a brilliant heist, requiring intense planning, coordination, and communication. For that reason, it is Destructoid's 2013 cooperative multiplayer game of the year.

In the community poll, Super Mario 3D World won by a landslide, with more than 28% of the votes, nearly twice as many as the next most popular choice, Dragon's Crown, followed by Payday 2. Congratulations to the winners!

Now's a nice time to buy a Wii U: Here's everything you should know

Even if you must play all the Hot New Games, you don't need a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One to do so until 2015. Enough of them are still releasing on PS3 and 360 this fall. The rest, on PC (and, for some of us, handhelds).  With the recent release of Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros., you might consider buying a Wii U, though. more

Smash Bros. 4: Hopes, Fears, and Predictions

When it comes to writing about Smash Bros, I'm a control freak. If Destructoid goes more than a day without posting about the series, I get impatient. Smash Bros is actually a big reason why I got started here. Back in 2007, ...more

Weekend Playlist: Summer Jams

Summer is officially in full swing and most of you are probably sitting inside and playing Destiny. I dont blame you though, if I had a PS4 I would be doing the same exact thing. For those of you who maybe want to pretend you are outside enjoying the nice weather, I have created this playlist of happy summertime jams.   more
