What better way is there to enjoy a great game than by sharing the experience with a friend by your side?

Back in the '90s there really was no other way to play co-operatively other than with your gaming-partner-in-crime sat beside you on the sofa, hammering away at your respective controllers.

However, the dawn of online connectivity has meant that co-op gaming has shifted from sitting on the same couch to being anywhere in the world. Thankfully, there are still plenty of games out there offering excellent local co-op experiences for those of us who still prefer a more social experience. Here are 50 of the best couch co-op games and local multiplayer games on PlayStation 4.

50. Sky Force Anniversary

Sky Force Anniversary is a good old-fashioned scrolling shooter. It looks gorgeous, and it’s fun to play to boot – and with a local co-op mode available, it’s even more fun with a friend by your side. It can get pretty hectic on screen though, especially with two lots of bullets flying around!

49. Caveman Warriors

If you like an old-school platformer, then Caveman Warriors is worth checking out. With a friend playing by your side in local co-op, the game’s much more challenging as you need to utilise each character’s special skills in order to progress through the level.  With a prehistoric theme and a cool cast of characters, it’s a fun way to pass the time – even if it is very challenging.
