Fanatical Gift Guide - Best Steam Multiplayer Games to Gift Someone

We all know Christmas can be a stressful time of year. However, the holidays give us time to meet up with friends and family, hang around the campfire, and maybe play some videogames together! Or, you can stay in your room forever and become the Grinch while never seeing a single person, all while hoarding the eggnog and playing your favourite games for the entire season (please don’t do that, though). So, if you don’t fancy being a hermit for the most wonderful time of the year, here are the best multiplayer games to gift someone. 


Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in a chaotic kitchen? Do you already work in one? Regardless, this game should definitely be a gift for the co-op lover in your family. It will force you and your siblings to work together to prevent the food from getting cold and deliver it on time to your customers. But make sure you do it quickly, or the loyal patrons will stomp out in a huff! So if you’ve wanted to engage in some friendly competition with those in your household and you love playing games centred around food, then make sure you do it in Overcooked

Monster Hunter Rise

If you love playing games online with your buddies, this game is perfect for you or the person who loves to do that. Whether you want to rise to the challenge, get the best outfits for your Felyne, or just run around and have a blast with your friends, this title is perfect for the winter break. You can play it for hours, just running around beating bosses and getting pummelled in the process, and if you’re looking for a break from a certain family member, you can hop online and have a blast with it. It’s also great for excusing yourself and your brothers from that awkward dinner conversation to go beat some baddies in Monster Hunter Rise.

Football Manager 2023

Does someone in your circle fancy some footy with their nog? Well, they’re in luck because this title allows them to manage their favourite football teams in whatever way they want and hopefully bring it to glory while having something to talk about at the water cooler. Want to transfer Christiano Ronaldo to the lowly Sheffield United for an absurd return? Do you want to take your team to the bottom of the league just because they didn’t score a goal in their latest game? You can do all that in Football Manager 2023! It’s perfect.

The Jackbox Party Pack 7

This is an excellent choice for those with small kids or little cousins who love to make jokes in a friendly, competitive setting. It’s even great for parents! Everyone can join through a browser or phone without owning the game by using a code. This pack includes five new games, with some returning favourites. All of them adhere to the code rule, too! If you’ve been looking for something to do with your family in the comfort of your own living room, then definitely give this one a look. Did I mention that you can play it with people online? Now, you have to give The Jackbox Party Pack 7 as a gift. 

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

How’s this for a doozy of an ending? The LEGO games have had a history of bringing people together, whether those people are fans of the current tie-in franchise or not. But what’s better than having a popular media franchise slapped onto a videogame? A videogame with a bucketload of content that feels neverending and a popular media franchise slapped onto it, that’s for sure! This game is the ultimate LEGO title, and it will give you and your friends lots to do long after the holiday season is over. So while it doesn’t have any online multiplayer at the time of writing, players can still hop in and hop out whenever they please using the game’s couch co-op feature. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga really is the ultimate package and a great gift for any gamer. 

There you have it, our list of the best multiplayer games to gift someone. Who knew videogames could bring so many people together? I thought there were only single-player narrative experiences out there! Find out how to send a gift here!
