The 5 Best Games To Play With Siblings

So today is National Siblings day, and what better way to celebrate than to pick out the best PC games to play with your sibling!

Portal 2

Portal 2

Probably the most obvious entry to any co-op game on this list is Portal 2. We’ll go as far to say it is the best split screen co-op game on the market today.



Spelunky as a single player game is good, but when you turn it into co-op, the rules change! You’d be wrong if you think it would be easier with your sibling but you will find yourself whipping and blowing each other up!

Don’t Starve Together


Another game that you’d think would be easier with your sibling, WRONG. Finding supplies is hard for one player, but when you have to find enough for two, well things just got a little bit more difficult. Competition for food and water is high. The trick to success is to work together rather than in-fighting. With up to 6 people being able to play in a game, you will be sure to create memories in co-op mode.

Divinity: Original Sin

Original Sin is a game most people will shrug off and think it’s just a typical solo RPG experience but in fact it can be just as immersive with a second pair of hands. Being able to discuss dilemmas and choices with your sibling adds to the enjoyment factor, as well as the in-depth combat system adding to the difficulty when more than one person is involved.

Borderlands 2


What better way to spend an afternoon with your sibling than blowing the heads off a few bad guys? Borderlands 2 is a perfect example of a co-op game done right. It’s one of many games that gets better with multiplayer. Some people think this game is boring solo, but when you can interact with people during the typical “go to this place and kill” quests, it makes it a heck of a lot more enjoyable.

So, what did you think of our list? Did we miss any games you enjoy playing with your siblings? Sound off below!
