Looking for good "girlfriend" game suggestions
Hello Steam!
I love PC gaming and I want to play some games with my girlfriend. My problem is that she has limited experience with PC games and well, she kinda sucks (her words, not mine). Her coordination isn't exactly top notch. So I'm looking for some fun Steam games we can play together, possibly a stragety games or easy platformers like Mario.

We've tried Trine (that's a bit beyond her ability) and Terraria (multiplayer setup is such a pain in the butt). She's really smart and I think a fun, cooperative, strategy game might be up her alley.

Any suggestions?

P.S. This is my first post in the forums here.

Well, for RTS, I suggest the Total War series, Command and Conquer: Generals, maybe even Toy soldiers. Nuclear Dawn is also a good FPS/RTS hybrid.

However, if you want a good storyline singleplayer game that you can play with each other, I recommend To the Moon, which is a touching game game about a man and his memories.

Plants Vs Zombies. It's cute, it's re-playable and it has strategy and it's casual.

She loves PvZ, but we can't really play it together =/

How about something like Magicka? Its a pretty fun co-op game and its pretty simple to learn but hard to master.

Damn, I shouldn't speed read posts :/ Have you tried TF2? It's not a serious FPS and MvM is really good co-op.

A few suggestions;
If you both like tower defense type games; Sanctum, Dungeon Defenders, or Orcs Must Die 2. All three are relatively easy and have adjustable difficulties.

If you both like puzzle games; you can't go wrong with Portal 2.

If you both like city building; Anno 2070 is fun to play with others.

Lastly if you both just want to mess around there is always Saint's Row the Third.

I recommend Torchlight 2 also. It's got a forgiving learning curve and hassle-free co-op set-up. Even if you're not huge on the dungeon-crawler genre, it's quite fun.

Well, since you're looking for a strategic, cooperative, fun game that's only $20, there's Portal 2. It's a really fun game, you can play co-op. It has challenging puzzles that you'll probably have a fun time figuring out. So, I suggest Portal 2. The game is only $20. So, it's not that much.

Great suggestions, guys! I appreciate it.
I think she'd get a kick out of Orcs Must Die 2. I have the first one, but haven't tried the sequel, et. I haven't tried Anno 2070, but we both loved Sim City, so I'll give it a look.

Are you on the same PC or do you have one each connected on a home network ? If you have one each you may want to look at UFO Enemy Unknown.
Blood Bowl Chaos edition can have a multiplayer set up on the same pc I like it and the characters are kind of fun to watch.

Also Neverwinter Nights can be multiplayer as well as Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale. although they are not realy steam games they are still good RPG's.
Hunted Demon Forge I think is a co-op game also. Could take a look at it see if its something she may like.

cs:GO/CS:S throw her a p90 and let her have some fun.

You should try Dungeon Defenders!

You can play it together at one computer with up to four players (splitscreen) and online at the same time.
