Project aim […]
Offer a complete list of PC games which support multiplayer gameplay on a single device.
For the purpose of this page, local multiplayer does not refer to LAN Play. Games which only support LAN Play multiplayer (multi-device over a single internet connection) are not to be included. This is to be reserved only for single-device multiplayer.
This list is generated automatically. To add or update entries simply edit the individual pages.
Discuss the project on the Talk page.
Local multiplayer: Local multiplayer can refer to both single-device and LAN multiplayer. However, for the purpose of this list it will only be used to refer to games which can be played by multiple users on a singular device, albeit potentially with multiple controller devices.
Couch multiplayer: Couch multiplayer is synonymous with local multiplayer. It does not includes LAN play, as that requires multiple PCs. "Couch" multiplayer refers to the common situation of friends or family members playing a multiplayer game on a TV while sitting on a couch.
Couch co-op: A commonly-used term that refers to couch multiplayer games in which multiple local users work together, couch multiplayer includes this as well as any "versus" games.
Hot Seat: Also known as "Pass and Play", this refers to games which only support a single input device which is passed around amongst multiple players.
Co-op and Versus: Co-op, or cooperative, refers to a game in which players collaborate and work together. While you are able to, in some co-op games, kill or hurt the other player, the main goal is to work together. Versus refers to a game which is competitive, this includes Team Versus which can be considered both cooperative and versus.
