Knights and Bikes can be played solo, but is even better with a buddy in either local or online co-op. Taking on the roles of Nessa and Demelza as they explore the mysterious Penfurzy island, you'll get up to all sorts of mischief. Cooperation comes into play when you need to solve puzzles together, and in combat, your movesets play off of each other in lots of fun ways. An utter delight from start to finish.

Streets of Rage was always a great co-op game to play with a pal on Genesis, and that continues with the series' grand return. The gorgeous PS4 sequel is fun playing alone, but with others, it's just a blast -- and this time, couch co-op allows up to four players. Online play sticks to the traditional two, but even just with one other, the game's simple-but-satisfying combat makes for a really fun romp.

Feel free to swap this out for your favourite LEGO game on PS4. Whichever LEGO adventure you play, a big part of what makes them special is co-op. A friend can hop in at any point and take control of a second character, and playing together doubles the fun. Beating up baddies, solving puzzles, and seeing who can collect the most studs in each level -- these plastic platformers are built to be played in a twosome. We challenge you to not have a good time playing co-op in a LEGO game.

A second player can both help and hinder your chances, so communication is key to making progress in this fun, challenging co-op game.

There are plenty of ways to play Minecraft, but arguably the most enjoyable way is with a few pals. Working together to mine for resources, build structures, and fend off those pesky creepers can lead to some hilarious outcomes. Playing either locally or online and with endless possibilities, this is one co-op game you can always keep coming back to. And with the Bedrock update now on PS4, cross-play means you'll never be short of people to play with.
