Looking for a game to play with my girlfriend

So my girlfriend and I are taking a break from Minecraft, and we're looking for something else we can play together. 

 

The problem is the disparity between our gaming capabilities. She's using a fairly decent gaming PC that can at least sort of handle most modern games. And I'm stuck with an old laptop that runs Minecraft alright, but much more than that can be rough. 

 

This wouldn't be such a huge issue if she weren't exclusively a PC gamer. She doesn't play consoles at all, and I have all the consoles. 

 

So I was wondering if you guys might be able to give us some recommendations on games we could play together. Something that my potato might actually run, or something that has crossplay with PC and console. 

 

We're big Minecraft fans, as well as other similar games like 7 days to die. We were going to play elder scrolls online, because we thought it had crossplay(I have it on PS4), but I've discovered it doesn't. We're also both fans of farming/crafting games like "my time at Portia", but for some reason she's totally against playing stardew valley.(apparently she hates retro pixel graphics)

 

I jokingly threw out the suggestion of playing fortnite, since it has crossplay, and thank God she said no. Really not into battle Royale/MOBA games. 

 

I suggested Diablo 3, because my laptop might run it, but I haven't gotten a response yet. 

 

We're really open to just about anything, so if there's a game with co-op that you like, feel free to throw it out there. All suggestions are appreciated. 

 

Attached is a blurry picture of her steam library, because she doesn't know how to use printscreen.

San Andreas Multiplayer

Didn't even know San Andreas had multiplayer. Would servers for something that old still be up?

I'm a big fan of Diablo II, it supports both online (Battle.Net) and LAN multiplayer.

Diablo III is good for a more modern option.

Torchlight II is a similar option that, like Diablo II, supports online and LAN multiplayer.

 

The Portal games I think support co-op, and you can play with others on Gmod too. Left for Dead II I know supports co-op, and I think Left for Dead does as well.

It's a mod for San Andreas. There's also MTA:SA, though I haven't played either in years, so I don't know how active servers on each of them are anymore.

I've heard Torchlight is a little less intense on the graphics card than Diablo. Is it easier to run? (Not that Diablo is particularly hard to run, but again, potato laptop.)

Still pretty active.

Skyrim Together is pretty good too.

Beat 'em ups aren't really my favorite, but I've had plenty of fun with stuff like golden axe back in the day, so I'll look into it.

I get about 115FPS on Diablo 3 maxed out at 1440p. (Shouldn't have much trouble running on lower settings, 1080p on a low-mid end laptop.)
Torchlight II gets about 130FPS maxed out at 1440p. (Same deal as Diablo 3)

 

I'd say they're pretty similar in performance requirement, though Torchlight is a little easier to run. I'm not sure about performance in action heavy areas since I don't usually pay attention to my FPS when playing.

Cool. If she's interested in Diablo, I'll probably suggest Torchlight instead.

If you can run Minecraft, you can probably run Left 4 Dead and probably Left 4 Dead 2. Both are hella fun co-op zombie shooters.

I did think about that. I'll look into it and see if I can run it.

BREAKING NEWS: I decided to see if I might be able to run call of duty modern warfare 3, because it's objectively the best CoD, and by some miracle it actually runs pretty well.

 

Apparently I've been underestimating what my laptop can do. If it can run MW3, I'm sure it can run left 4 dead.

Possibly not your thing, but good old age of empires and similar are very un-demanding on hardware and easy quick multiplayer. 

 

I am currently playing Dark Souls 3 with mine but Dark Souls games are a bit of a faff to play in entirety together due to the way summoning works. 

 

Elder Scrolls Online will also probably work well as when we tried it she was playing on a MacBook with no GPU! It's probably pretty cheap to buy on PC, probably too frustrating to start again though if one of you has already dedicated lots of time to a save on console.

WoW Classic is releasing soon if you're into MMO's and anything can run it. Guild Wars 2 has its core world F2P. You just pay for expansions.
