If both you and your significant other love video games, why not spend a portion of your Valentine's Day playing some of the best co-op games around?

'Divinity: Original Sin II'

One of the best RPGs in years has co-op built right in, so you can experience the incredible storytelling from Larian Studios together.

'Luigi's Mansion 3'

Enter Gooigi. Explore this haunted hotel as both Luigi and his ectoplasm doppelgänger. Even better, the goo-based second player can't really die, so it's well-suited for partners who are still new to gaming.

'Borderlands 3'

Enjoy split-screen couch co-op looter-shooting with a loved one. And even if you're celebrating Valentine's Day in different parts of the world, teaming up is still dead simple.

'A Way Out'

Few games take advantage of a two-player setup as well as "A Way Out." Enjoy this clever prison-break story play out by accomplishing separate-but-complimentary tasks.

'Gears 5'

"Gears 5" is best experienced as a co-op game, so you and your partner should team up to see where this storied franchise is headed. Even better, it's also available as part of Game Pass.

While countless plans have been scrubbed, there's still plenty of opportunity for some summer fun if you or a loved one have a back yard.

Below, you'll find a selection of some of our favorites that help facilitate outdoor entertainment.

Water Slide

While water parks aren't really a good idea right now, you can still slide around and have a good time on your lawn. Just be sure to double-check for stones on the ground — trust us.

Bluetooth Speaker

If you want to pump some jams outdoors, it's worth investing in a portable waterproof Bluetooth speaker. This JBL model can play for up to 12 hours on a single charge, so you'll have plenty of time to boogie down.

Block Tower Game

Think about the game Jenga, and then supersize it. This scaled-up iteration of the classic stacking block game always gets us to crack a smile.

Lawn Darts

If you're inviting a friend over, and you're trying to maintain social distancing, lawn darts are a pretty fun way to pass the time safely. Plus, they're way less spiky than they used to be.

Trampoline

Boing! Trampolines are wildly fun, and they can be pretty decent exercise too. It's hours of bouncy entertainment, so jump on it!

Fire Pit

Maintaining a safe, contained fire is one of our all-time favorite ways to spend our free time. Long nights chatting with friends around the fire are some of our most cherished memories, after all.

Just be sure to bring a fire extinguisher with you every time there's an open flame. And it's worthwhile to double-check if your area has an active burn ban in place.

Grill

Want to take advantage of the beautiful weather, and cook outdoors? A nice grill like this Weber will deliver some tasty summer flavors without much hassle at all.

At the end of the day, any time spent in the great outdoors is worthwhile. Even if you're just kicked back in a lounge chair reading a good book, nature is a nice retreat from the stresses of the world.
