    "I notice the link takes you to the steam listing but you can find the game on the Playstation Network as well. I've had a lot of fun with the game playing with my coworkers and the price point is just about right for what you get out of it."

    "I actually have a lot of experience with the Jackbox Party Pack 2 and I have to say it is so much fun! It is a great multiplayer game (up to 8 players on some games) and is sure to create a fun and hilarious mood with your friends. My favorite games are Quiplash and Fibbage.

    "Like many working parents I needed time to wind down after a hectic day. Sometimes I don't have time to devote to an entire 2 hours gaming session so the game I was in search of had to be fairly easy to pick up and put down at a moments notice. In comes Little Big Planet 3! I love the graphics, cartoon like customized characters, and fun music. As a bonus, my 8 year old enjoys playing this with me too!"

    "The PS4 Platform is lacking in the number of game titles that it has for 4 players who just want to have short gaming sessions here and there. Not everyone has the time to engage in long drawn out sessions. Well, Rayman Legends fits the bill. It will allow up to 4 players to game together for short, or long if they prefer, sessions. This is the solution I was looking for on the Playstation gaming platform"

    "Diablo III is a very popular and highly rated video game and certainly qualifies as a best choice. I'm excited that it can be played with up to 4 players since that is definitely a top priority for me! I'm not sure about how long a game would take and whether it would qualify as "short", as that data doesn't appear on the PS4 screen I was taken to. I will definitely be looking into it further!"

    "This game is OK for what it is. It's sort of a party game to have around for family gatherings when the kids have gotten a little restless. My kids played it with their cousins over Thanksgiving and got some laughs out of it. The graphics aren't great, but it's cheap so you can't expect much. I wouldn't pay $19.99 for it, but for its current price of $5.99, it's OK. "
