So I am struggling to find a game that my boyfriend and I can play together...

I currently play League of Legends, Hearthstone, and WoW and he refuses to play any of those with me probably because I am significantly better than he ever would be.

He likes shooters like Battlefield, COD, and Gears. I like shooters but I prefer MMOs and MOBAs. Help me out!

For MMO...Final Fantasy 14: Realm Reborn

You could also Look for Black Gold if your boyfriend want guns in them. It's in beta though.

I'm sure I can come up something else later.

Borderlands. specifically Borderlands 2

Its a first person shooter that has "Fantasy elements" to it ..... I cant really describe it but usually for people who dont like FPS they at least find it entertaining.

Also, I think it has less to do with how much better you are at those games and more just his taste in games but I could be wrong.

Definitely take a look at ArcheAge! However, it is also in Beta so you got to keep an eye on upcoming beta key give aways. ^__^

Ummm.. It's really hard to pick out something for you two when you like complete opposite game genres :S.. But if he likes Diablo style games: you could play Path of Exile(or Diablo), if you like 3rd person shooters with a mission set try Warframe.. But you're guys taste are almost opposites..

This is a really weird suggestion, but Transformers Universe is sort of a cross between MOBA and third person shooter (plus you can turn into vehicles which is neat). Maybe you could try that. It has some annoying F2P mechanics though, but I think it's a decent game. Smite is a little similar but it's more of a MOBA than a third person game and heavily reliant on skill.

Check out Smite.It is a fast pace Moba. If your good at fps then you be good at that. You need skill to aim your skills. Also check out Unturned on steam. Its a zombie survival game. You level up skills and there are alot of gear such as guns with scopes and katanas. Both games are f2p.

Haha, I'm pretty certain it just means he's not into MOBAs or strategy games like Hearthstone - both of which I can understand. It sounds like MMOs aren't his thing either in which case I won't suggest newer MMOs that are worth checking out.

Out of all of the suggestions on this thread, this one is the best. Honestly, suggesting something like Diablo to what appears to be casual gamers with mainstream taste, isn't a great idea.

Borderlands incorporates RPG elements with a FPS loot n' shoot style game play. There's minimal learning curve and if you coordinate the classes you both pick you can make a pretty good team. My boyfriend plays Zer0, whilst I play Maya - it's a good combo. It's fun, witty and you're bound to enjoy yourself and share a laugh.

You just missed out on the Steam Summer Sale though, where the GOTY Edition for Borderlands 2, plus 9 DLCs, were on sale for $20. You would've saved a lot of money. Maybe another sale will come around or you can use

Some other co-op games you guys might enjoy: Left for Dead, Portal, Payday, Saints Row/GTA, Resident Evil 5.

And, personally, you can't go wrong with Halo. Play through the campaign together.

Borderlands is a nice FPS with a lot of MMO characteristics. It's also one of the best co-op games that i have ever played. Both borderlands and Borderlands 2 go on sale about every other week and you can usually get it for around $10 or so.

I would also recommend you check out destiny - it's very similar to borderlands, but it focuses on the MMO aspect a lot more, as you can interact with more than 3 other people at once and it is an open world where you can find many people doing many things. I was playing it the other day i couldn't help but think about gun gale . The only bad thing about it for PC is that it's supposed to come out in like March of 2015. If you have any consoles i would recommend checking out the beta; it's free now!

If you are still looking for a game Firefall an "open-world MMO shooter " is free to play and comes out July 27. It's a pretty fun game now. You could play an "Assault" who does plenty of AOE damage, or a "Dreadnaught" Who is more like a "Tank" with a machine gun.
or a "Biotech" who could be a sort of healer or dps. and more "Battleframes". you can also craft your own weapons and other gear. Looks like it might be able to please both of your needs and play together. More info at http://www.firefallthegame.com/

Play ArcheAge with him


archeagegame.com


The game doesn't have limits as much as the other games, plus the game isn't really based on skills but organization & numbers of people, but that's not to say it's skill-less a level 40 can beat a level 50 given the right weakness of classes & strengths.

Plus you can own a house together & a farm, a mansion even then have a family, this isn't really a big feature though as it's just a group. You can sail with your boyfriend with the sun setting down.

ArcheAge CBT 2 is coming on Wednesday July 30 at 10 AM PDT - CBT 2 keys are needed unless you're a founder. If you two have any questions pm me that or you can find me at CBT Kyrios Server (NA) by the name of Principe

Goodluck!

This is the trailer for ArcheAge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pSQPhsys6M
