    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "There aren't many split screen multiplayer games on PS4 but the Binding of Isaac is a good game. I would recommend this game for people want some couch co-op with their friends. It's an RPG and a shooter in one so it's likely to have something for everyone."


    Did you know that, prior to the advent of online gaming, the split screen feature in video games was historically used for multiplayer games? This allows simultaneously gameplay for multiple players, without a need for turn-based gameplay that alternates between players. The first prime examples of split screen gaming include the 1997 game GoldenEye for Nintendo 64 and Super Mario Bros. 3. Since the launch of Xbox Live in 2002, video games have shifted in focus from local multiplayer games into online gaming. Couch co-op and split screen gaming have fallen into the side lines, with less and less games being produced with split-screen options. However, split screen gaming is not entirely dead. There are still games being released with a local multiplayer option, for those who embrace the thrill of playing in the same room as your teammates or opponents. Split-screen games have since adapted to fit the user’s need, to make it easier for them to share the screen with another person’s gameplay, like the option to choose between horizontal and vertical split-screen. Now with bigger screens with better quality for high-definition graphics and powerful consoles that can handle the computing power, the gamers of today are already set-up for the resurgence of split-screen gaming.

      "Resident Evil 5 is the seventh installment in the Resident Evil video game franchise. It has the reputation of being one of the best split screen multiplayer co-op style games the industry has ever created. It is looked on by myself and others as one of the finest examples of split screen gaming still to this day."

      "Terraria is a great game, I would absolutely recommend it for the PC. But I can't sit idle while it is this high on a PS4 list, especially involving the split screen aspect! This game is an absolute nightmare to play on PS4. I gave it my all to get past the sloppy control layout that cannot be manually edited besides a few equally as bad control schemes. And once I learned to play like that, because I was playing with a friend, there are many more irritants to get past. The worst being crafting, in split screen when crafting is taking place the other players must remain out of their inventory and not make any changes to it, including picking items or money up. If a change occurs then your cursor will be shot from the crafting menu straight to your first equipment slot. The 2nd would be a current bug in the PS4 version that randomly deletes a random item in your quick slots, where any weapons, tools, or consumables would go. Yeah... At random... That sword you worked so hard to get? Gone. The only pickaxe amongst your 4 friends able to mine the new one your group is eyeing up? Well better get to mining with your old one. Wanted to heal up with your fresh new stack of potions you pulled from your chest? Well that's to bad, looks like your gonna have to heal with minor ones instead. And the 3rd one is random crashes, and with how saves are handled on the game, PS4 version specifically. If the game crashes and you are the primary world owner then things seem to be fine. Until your friends join back in. The game takes your characters and saves them just fine! But when it comes to the world, that's another story. If anyone stored or traded anything within the time period after the last auto save and the crash, it is as if the items never existed. Thank you for reading this and please pass it on. Until they fix this monstrosity of a game, at least for PS4, please I beg you, do not support this."

      "A game has to be pretty great for me to want to play split screen multiplayer, and Rocket League is one of the games that makes it worth it. A soccer plus racing game is as ridiculous as it sounds, in a good way, and the graphics are smooth and the physics fun. Most importantly for couch multiplayer, the split screen is done well."

      "This is an immersive racing game that has a lot of little details that keeps you engaged. It's great because I get tired of games easily but this I've been playing this game for months and I still have a great time playing it. I think it's because there are 200 tracks and I play with my friends with the multiplayer function."

      "I wanted a multiplayer game that could be played in split screen on PS4. HELLDIVERS Democracy Strikes Back Edition is a twin stick shooter and a really fun game to play, though I'm not sure how easily it can be put into split screen mode; I wasn't able to do it. But there's so much to like in this game, and the collaborative action is so intense, I'm willing to overlook that small difficulty!"

Don't Starve Together is the perfection solution. It has local multiplayer that can be played on a single screen. I wish more games would do the classic split-screen games of the past - but nowadays everything seems to be online multiplayer."

It's hilarious, compared to what's in the Wipeout Omega collection, how blocky and bad it is, in a way that none of these are. When I play them, I think what the movie might have been like had she also been playing one of these, and find myself in need of some alone time. That is to say, these are pretty swell."
