Wacky Races on the dreamcast……

I remember playing with my wife and two kids, but I only had 3 controllers, so I had to use a dreamcast keyboard.....still great fun though...

The N64 was perfect for multiplayer games and has a wide selection of games.

On the SNES, Superbomberman with a multitap was epic. There were also a few games on the original Playstation that used a multitap as well.

Going back to 16-bit era Micro Machines was fun - the Megadrive cart that had a special expansion on the cart itself to plug 2 more controllers in, no multi-tap necessary.

Gauntlet had that function, although I never played the game so couldn't tell you if it was a good conversion!

Think with Worms you could play 4P but with one controller - although from memory I don't think the Megadrive version was the best.

The best one of all is the Rock Band games. Want 3+ players on the one system and screen? No worries, go for it.
