Posted by William Sattelberg on December 14, 2019

Sometimes, when looking for a game, you want something simple. A fun time waster, something that eats up some time on the commute to work or while standing in line at the grocery store. Other times, you might be looking for the type of game you can really sink your teeth into. Maybe you want something that presents the player with a whole series of role-playing elements, allowing you to level up a character with stats and build an entire story around their adventures. Maybe you’re looking for a first-person shooter with a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat, a blockbuster action thriller filled with political intrigue and thrilling set pieces. Or perhaps you’re looking for something with less gameplay and a more inventive story, to entertain you while keeping the actual combat or strategy to a minimum.

Whatever your taste in games, there’s one subgenre of gaming you simply can’t ignore: multiplayer titles. These come in all different genres, which means no matter what your favorite style of game or how much expertise you have in gaming, you can easily find a title for you and your friends to play without much effort. Some multiplayer games are made for couch play—games that you can play right on your own iPhone or iPad with a friend sitting next to you with their own device. Other games allow you to pass and play an iPad or iPhone, making for a great experience as you and your friends pass the device back and forth, taking turns competing in a board game or planning turn-based strategies in combat. Of course, some of the most popular games in 2019 are online multiplayer experiences, where you’re battling it out against random people from all over the world right from the comfort of your living room.

But the problem is obvious: with so many games dying for your attention on the App Store, how do you know which multiplayer titles are worth playing? That’s where we come in. We’ve scoured the entirety of the App Store to find some of the best games to play, both locally and with friends or strangers online.

Half of your pictures for Minecraft are of Terraria. Might want to fix that.
