You can create a party with friends and then go online together on the same server
This does not make it a team game. After all, Baldur’s Gate is not a team game either, although “You must pool your party before the adventure.” Party game! = Party game.
Party game is often understood as a game that is easy to participate in all of us in the same room.

Fall Guys isn’t a really traditional party game because everyone in the company has to purchase the game individually. This creates a barrier to playing “just like this” during the “party”. Everyone also needs their own PC or console, which for just sake of summoning during a random party increases the threshold. And no, the LAN end does not convert every multiplayer game into a team game.
The only thing Fall Guys has is that the gameplay is simple. The rest is against calling it a team game.
