When it comes to good beat 'em up games for PlayStation 4, there is a pretty good amount of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best PS4 beat 'em up games, with the help of your votes.

One of the newest PlayStation 4 beat 'em ups is Tekken 7. Released in early 2015, the newest installment in the Tekken series goes back to classic fighting game roots in a game that is both addicting and fun. If you never played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it's a must-play beat 'em up game for any PS4 owner. Other options include Gang Beasts, Mother Russia Bleeds, and Knack 2.

Not every beat 'em up game on this list is a PlayStation 4 original - take Batman: Return to Arkham. for example, which came out in 2013. However, all these beat 'em up games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite beat 'em up game for PS4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
