Introducing Your Partner to Gaming: The Best Duo Games

After taking a few weeks off, it feels great to be back writing for 101 Militia Gaming. I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season. I was able to take some time off work, enjoy the season with my family, and take a million photos of my daughter’s first Christmas.

While I was on break, I spent an unhealthy amount of time on TikTok. If you are one of the few who hasn’t downloaded it, just don’t. It’s so easy to get sucked in and before you know it, 30 minutes have flown by.

Anyway, lately I have noticed a trend that involves usually females complaining about their partner spending more time gaming than with them. While I can recognize that sometimes gaming can be an unhealthy obsession, it made me wonder if they had ever tried gaming with their partner instead.

Which leads me to my post today. If you have been wanting your partner to play with you, which games are the best to start off with? My suggestions are all games that offer split screen on the PS4 since that is what I am most familiar with.


Minecraft is a great game to introduce your partner to gaming. Not only are there multiple difficulty levels to help them ease into it, but the creative possibilities are endless. From building a castle together to mining for diamonds, Minecraft has a lot to offer in a very non-threatening way.

Rocket League

Rocket League has recently become free-to-play so really everyone should have it on their consule anyway. You and your partner can customize your own cars to play during the match. I am guilty of driving a hot pink car with a daisy crown, so really, there is something for everyone. Rocket League can be played in casual or competitive mode. I recommend starting in casual and building up from there.

A Way Out

While I am still waiting to play this one, I have heard nothing but great things. In A Way Out, you and your partner can try to escape prison together. By completing different challenges and puzzles, you have to make sure you have good communication in order to succeed.


While I admittedly am not a huge Fortnite fan, the game is free-to-play and could be a really fun experience for you and your partner. Playing in duo mode, you can hide out together, hunt other players, and build epic shelters to try to be the winners.

Call of Duty: WW2

For whatever reason, this is my favorite Call of Duty game. You and your partner can explore the epic maps while playing in split screen against bots, or against other players if you choose. COD WW2 also has a really fun zombies mode. Play if you dare!

Those are my top 5 split screen picks! Have you and your partner played any of them? Or are you like my husband and I where we each have a PS4 which brings us even more options of games to play together? Let me know your suggestions in the comments!
