I've been playing a load of multiplayer games recently so I thought it might be nice to have a thread listing loads of games with local multiplayer.
I'll start with a few i've been playing recently.
Gauntlet – Slayer Edition [PC - PS4]
Single player it's pretty dull, but multiplayer it's a good, fun old-school twin stick 'shooter'.
Human Fall Flat – [PC - Switch - PS4 - Xbox]
A daft physics based sandbox puzzler where you can grab stuff/each other and hold on with the trigger buttons. Only two player locally but up to eight online.
Last Fight – [PC - PS4 - Xbox]
It's pretty much a Powerstone clone. While it lacks the charm of the Dreamcast game, it's still good for an hour or two of bashing each other about.
Mario Kart – [any Nintendo console]
Goes without saying.
Super Mario 3D World – [Wii U]
This desperately needs a Switch re-release, as it's easily one of the best multiplayer Mario games.
Ultimate Chicken Horse – [PC - Switch - PS4 - Xbox]
Basically it's Super Meat Boy meets Mario Maker. A platformer where you have to get across a single screen before everyone else. The twist being that at the start of each round, each player gets to choose and place a single level piece, which can help or hinder everyone. Levels soon become a horrendous test of skill as your navigating buzz-saws, icy ledges and jet packs.
