Greetings forum dwellers!
Long time reader, first time poster. My wife and I used to play games quite a lot together; it all started w/ vanilla WoW and since then have played Rift & Swtor (albeit only for a few months after they were launched), as well as the odd TF2 match. She got sick of WoW long ago but I've stuck in there (for the PvP mainly) - playing on and off for months at a time.
When Diablo 3 was coming out I was planning & hoping it would be our 'next game', something we would both be interested in for years to come. Unfortunately, she couldn't get into D3 and even I got sick of it very soon after hitting 60.
She loves the Mass Effect franchise, as well as Skyrim and Oblivion before that. Unfortunately, none of these games are multiplayer (excluding the few co-op ME3 missions). Now I try and keep up with gaming news, reading plenty of different sites but for the life of me cannot figure out a game that we can play together (I think I would give up my left hanging fruit for a co-op Skyrim).
So my question is: what games do you play with your spouses/partners? Can you make any recommendations to me specifically taking into consideration games I've listed above?
Thanks for the responses!
PS: I've floated the idea of Path of Exile to her, but I think she has an inherent problem with top-down games, preferring a 1st or 3rd person angle. Oh and even with all the changes, D3 is still out of the question.
