    "I really love this game! This is a very easy game to learn for those playing it for the first time. The controls are not at all difficult to pick up. The graphics are also very well done."

    "The Jackbox Party Pack 2 is a collection of incredibly fun and unique games that can be played with all kinds of groups of varying sizes. You can play them in the same room, online, whatever you want!"

    "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."

    "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."

    "Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is a great game to play with friends. I was at a party once and this was an option for a game, it started out as a "Haha, let's play this kids game" but 10 minutes later we were all hooked and laughing and having a great time! I really like this game!"

    "My friends and I enjoy adventure games and get together often to game. We all have a PS4 and our favorite game is Trine 2. We play at least every weekend and sometimes through the week as well. Excellent game, if you're into split screen adventure games then give it a shot."

    "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!"

    "I like playing games with my friends, so I wanted to check out some multiplayer games for the PS4. I must not have been very clear when I asked my friends for suggestions, because they linked me to Mercenary Kings, which is a PC game, so it's not at all what I'm looking for."

    "I love playing local multiplayer games on my PS4 with my family. I am always looking for the best PS4 local split screen multiplayer games. My all-time favorite LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. It has a dynamic split screen that allows for more freedom but it can cause some people to feel a bit motion sick. That is my only complaint with this otherwise excellent game."

    "I wanted a new game that my girlfriend and I could play when we are bored. We were sick of having to connect to the internet and play on separate computers though. 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."

    "Because I've always been a fan of Angelina Jolie, I watch all her movies, including the most abysmal ones, which of course, means Hackers. In it, there's a scene of her playing a racing game. 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."

Delve into fantasy and become the most hated enemy of all time by knocking out your opponents and stealing their weapons. Just a word of caution, tension might arise so keep it fun and don't take it too seriously!"
