The PS4 experience is incomplete without having your friends and family play together and have quality time. While Sony’s console has some brilliant single-player titles, it’s the co-op and multiplayer games which really give a social dynamic to gaming. Given the backward capability of the PS5, these games are available for that console as well.

Let’s have a look at the best PS4 couch co-op games and local multiplayer games you can enjoy with your friends and family.
