Selamat Hari Raya!
As the period of Ramadan and fasting is coming to an end soon, many of us are happy to celebrate the upcoming festivities that is Hari Raya. And with that comes the part where your loved ones come to visit and have fun. We’re sure a number of you want to band together and play games together offline.
Here’s the full list of games you should pack if you want to play old school on the holidays!
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
Available on: PC, Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, Nintendo Switch
Let’s start the list with a recent fun for all ages: a LEGO Star Wars game.
The latest game features new stages based on all nine Star Wars movies and new characters from recent shows and TV spin-offs like The Mandalorian. That means a ton of characters to play as, loads of stages to explore and collect LEGO bricks, and offline co-op so you and your cousins can take turns playing the game while the adults pass by. their way in talking about adults. -up topics. Heck, the new Star Wars game is so whimsical to watch and look at, they might even join in the fun!
Additionally, the game features new aerial combo systems in its combat, which means plenty of combo video shenanigans to pull off in front of the impressionable while they play “Devil Trigger” in the background.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Available on: Xbox consoles, PC
Until Halo Infinite adds split-screen, it’s the only option to play all Halo games on a single screen. This eclectic collection is the best way to show your cousins and loved ones the joy of a fun first-person shooter fragfest, whether in a PvP environment or a single-player co-op fiesta.
Available on: PC, Xbox Series, Xbox One, PS4, PS5
One of the best cyberpunk action games of the last year has offline co-op. Three of you and your cousins/parents can team up and take on the slew of cyber thugs and corporate goons with guns and swords, in an isometric perspective style. The Ascent may have had a few co-op bugs when it launched, but most of them have now been fixed. Your offline co-op sessions should run smoothly, letting you relive the days when games like Smash TV and Total Carnage brought people together.
Streets of rage 4
Available on: PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One
The best 2D beat-em-up sequel has a new roguelike mode that lets you play endlessly until you and your loved ones are knocked out. Also, action games with 4-player offline co-op that goes off without a hitch are rare these days, especially with great 2D aesthetics and a bloody soundtrack to go along with it. Go buy Streets of Rage 4 and its Mr X Nightmare DLC, then get four controllers ready to get the rumble party started!
Available on: PC, PS4, Xbox One
If your nephews and relatives are more on the competitive side, fighting games are the games of choice. The matches pass very quickly and everyone can pass the controller after each fight.
But which fighting game is best for a party? Besides Super Smash Bros Ultimate, we suggest Tekken 7. It features a huge roster of colorful characters with different playstyles, it looks great and has great music, and it has easy inputs and controls compared to other titles with strict motion entries. Plus, the game sucks online compared to the rest, so playing this 1v1 fighter offline is the best way to spend this holiday in Raya.
