WSIB Deep couch coop games for PS4 or PC

Hi. I'm looking for some suggestions for couch coop games that I can play with my SO. We tend to like games that are on the deeper side of the spectrum and that actually encourages cooperation as we find that in a lot of popular coop games, we are just playing parallel to each other instead of with each other and can go through most of the games without much talking. To help narrow down the search, here are some notable games and our thoughts:

Divinity: Original Sin 2 – This might be our absolute favorite couch coop game of all time. I’m not sure if it was intentional, but I think this game was made to be played cooperatively. With the amount of stuff in it, we tend to assign different roles for each other that we enjoyed more. For instance, a lot of the times, I handled the exploration and she handled the looting. This probably saved us a lot of time. Being able to divide and share loot is a lot of fun as well. The turn-based combat is perfect for us as well since we’re huge board gamers. Being able to talk strategy and tactics in a video game is a breath of fresh air. And not to mention getting to experience a story together with a lot of choices that we can make together (or against each other’s wishes) is just the icing in this wonderful cooperative cake.

Helldivers – In terms of fast-paced couch co-ops, Helldivers is probably one of the best. It’s obvious that the developers put an enormous amount of thought into the cooperative aspect of this game. We constantly have to think about how we’re positioning ourselves in the screen because of friendly fire. Because of the limited amount of equipment that we can bring to a scenario, we have to talk about how to split the things that we think are essential to the next mission. We find that a lot of communication is needed to succeed: from asking for equipment, to asking for help with the overwhelming number of enemies, to making quick decisions on who will hold the enemies and who will complete the current objective. The game is just amazing.

Overcooked 1 and 2 – I don’t think anything else needs to be said about how great this game is as a couch coop. Unfortunately, the novelty of the game eventually died out for us.

Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light, Unravel 2, Trine Series – With puzzle games, what tends to happen is we just look at the screen until one of us solves the puzzle and tells the other person what to do. Don’t get me wrong, they are still great, fun games. They are just not the best cooperative experiences in our opinion.

Stardew Valley, Don't Starve Together – We already play Stardew Valley together occasionally, but we're currently looking for something with an ending.

LEGO Games, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Castle Crashers – These are just too simple for our taste.

Gears 5, Resident Evil 5 & 6, Borderlands Series – We found that we didn’t like splitscreen for a third person shooter that has a lot of action. It just felt too restricting.

Diablo III – This one we're on the fence about. While another cooperative RPG sounds really enticing, a lot of the videos make it seem like it's too much of a hack-and-slash button masher which really isn't our thing. I'd love to be convinced otherwise.

Wasteland 3 – We’re well aware of the existence of this game and are very excited for it. However, the game doesn’t support couch coop (yet).

Baldur’s Gate 3 – From the developers of Divinity 2, this is one of our most anticipated games. However, we don’t like playing games in early access, so we probably won’t play this until it gets fully released.
