The PlayStation 4 is home to a number of amazing games, but how many of them can you play with someone else? Online multiplayer has certainly made it easier to find someone to be your player two. However, there are times where you just want to skip the matchmaking and play with someone who is sitting right beside you on the couch. Thankfully, the PS4 has a strong lineup of local co-op games. With the help of your votes, let's rank the best local co-op games on PS4 right now.

All-age games like LittleBigPlanet 3 and Unravel Two are incredibly charming to play through, while games like Diablo III and zombie favorites like Resident Evil: Revelations 2 offer more intense action for the older-skewing crowd. If you're looking for a more unique experience, indie games like Guacamelee! 2 and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime are there for you with their fascinating visuals and addicting gameplay. However, if you want a party game that will have everyone in a frenzy, look no further than Super Bomberman R, Rayman Legends, and Gang Beasts
