Good 4 player 1 screen games?

So me and my friends started having game nights in the same room and we started with co op games but they just are not our speed.We have moved on to games like the ones I'll list below that are 4 players against each other and we have a blast.Now though since it's been a few nights looking for some newer games to try out and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or though's and could maybe make a list for others who want to try this.

We stick to console as everyone dragging pc's we just don't have the room when we are 8-10 people most times.

Ps4
Towerfall

Wii/U
Smash bros
Mario party
Pokken (2 player but just listing also as we enjoy it)

Xbox

Thanks for any help.

PS4:


Good 4-player same screen co-op games:

Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition (4 players locally or online, or a combination of both)
Rock Band 4 (requires all band equipment for 4 players simultaneously)
Little Big Planet 3

Most sports games (depending on which one)
(although not 4 players simultaneously, most fighting games taking turns 1v1)

Overcooked

I'll check out some of the games listed for sure thanks guys but what I was getting at was more battle games.The co op stuff said when hanging out dose not work the best for our group and were more into 1 screen 4 player vs type games which seem to be hard to find.

Like this kind of game which I mentioned.4 player game you can talk shit with your friends and have a ton of fun

Helldivers isn't player v player, but is good for some 4 player same screen coop fun.

Not sure which Xbox you have.

My friends and I had a lot of fun with Bomberman Live. I think it's only available for 360.

Great game and it has friendly fire which sort of turns it into PvP at times :)

Very underrated title, had a blast with it.
