With a name like Ultimate Chicken Horse, how can you go wrong? This is a 2D platformer with an ingenious twist -- you build the level as you play it. Laying down traps and obstacles may slow your opponents down, but you'll have to navigate them too if you're to win. There's a great sense of strategy to this title that balances perfectly between careful planning and royally screwing everyone over.
We all know about the new online capabilities of Everybody's Golf, but is its local multiplayer offering up to par? Well, up to four players can play together locally, competing in 9 or 18 hole matches, and it's decent, lighthearted fun. As its name suggests, this is a golf game that practically anyone can pick up and have fun with, and its cheery tone makes it an ideal game to play with family.

We couldn't not include a Worms game on this list, and Worms W.M.D is the best available on PS4. With gameplay that harks back to the glory days of Worms: Armageddon, this is the classic turn-based invertebrate warfare you know and love with a new, cartoonish lick of paint. There's a reason these games are still around - that core gameplay is still excellent fun with a couple of friends. Incoming!
The music game boom may have died faster than rap metal, but there’s no doubt that Rock Band 4 is still a great multiplayer experience. With the multi-instrument format lending itself brilliantly to extended party sessions, and an enormous catalogue spanning hundreds of bands and genres, this remains the best multiplayer musical experience you’ll find on the PS4 right now.
Drinkbox Studios' Mexican Metroidvania is brilliant when playing alone, but it's also lots of fun with others. Guacamelee! 2 supports up to four players on the same screen, and it can make for some wonderfully chaotic multiplayer. With friends lending a hand in battles, or someone helping to solve a tricky platforming challenge, this game can fly by with pals -- or it can spiral out of control. Either way, you'll all be having a blast.
