4. Surgeon Simulator
Surgeon Simulator is the perfect game for anyone with aspirations of becoming a doctor, and it’s a lot more fun if you have someone to play with. Just make sure not to leave your scalpels in the patient’s body.

9. Unravel Two
The first Unravel was great, but Unravel Two is even better just by virtue of it being a multiplayer co-op game on PS4. This time, Yarny gets a blue yarn friend to join him on his journey. Players will need to work together, swinging each other while connected via yarn to reach new heights.
10. The Binding of Isaac

11. Resident Evil Revelations 2
In Revelations 2, one person can take on the role of the beefy gunner, and the other can take on a more supportive backup role by picking up items and shining a flashlight around. Occasional separation of the characters also makes for some very tense multiplayer experiences.

Grab a few Star Wars fans, put them into a PS4 chat party, and take down some Walkers on Hoth together.
14. Any LEGO Game
Really, any LEGO game on the PS4 right now should provide you with some good local co-op PS4 multiplayer fun.

26. Apex Legends
One of the surprise releases of 2019, Apex Legends is the latest battle royale game to join the fray. It puts a spin on the formula as well, as players actually get to choose their class type before jumping into a match.

The latest entry in the Monster Hunter franchise is pretty awesome. Monster Hunter: World is definitely the most accessible the series has ever been, and it’s even better when you’re playing with friends. Granted, the SOS Flare mechanic and other online components don’t feel quite as intuitive as previous games, but hunting solo is no way to hunt.
