I'm looking for some new gaming material for guy's night. Preferably split-screen or same-screen multiplayer, aka couch co-op games. There are usually 3-4 of us and we sometimes bring in another TV if necessary.
Games we've recently played include MW3 (Survival mode), Dungeon Defenders, Castle Crashers, Borderlands, and Trials HD (high score battles).

Those are hard to come by. I'd been looking for those, too, living in a studio apartment with one TV and two avid gamers.
Couch Co-Op games that I've enjoyed (besides what you've already played) are Zombie Apocolypse (and NDA but the first one is better, in my opinion) and South Park Tower Defense. South Park just released a new game on Friday also. The South Park one was pretty fun and I bet you and your buddies would have some fun with the towers, even if you are not a South Park fan.
Rage co-op was pretty fun, but it's short and only for two people. Splosion Man was pretty fun, also for two people.

What system are you playing on? Not sure if you played any games I'm gonna list. Just going on top of my head. XBLA/PSN has Scott Pilgrim: Vs The World. 4 player couch co-op. Retro style Beat em Up with RPG mechanics like River City Ransom. Game is not too long, but fun that you'll probably play more than once trying to level up your character. Since you mentioned bring TVs over if needed, Borderlands. FPS also with RPG elements. That game lets you play 2 player split screen. Don't quote me on this, but I think they added a LAN option in one of the update. Not too sure cause sadly I never got a chance to play with more than 2 players besides Online.
Also if you're into fighting games. There's Street Fighter X Tekken, but only if you have a PS3. PS3 allows for 4 players to play at once both On and Offline. I hear Xbox version doesn't allow that, but not sure if that includes Offline or both On/Offline. Also WWE All Stars is excellent for a fighter. It's very Arcade with over the top moves. It's a blast in 4 Players. I know not everyone is a wrestling fan, but I have friends who know nothing about wrestling playing this. Or if you don't watch new WWE but grew up with classic WWF, they got some Legends. Game is half new cast and half old so there's plently to go around. Only problem is the game has awful loading.

Now you're talking my language! RPG mechanics, Retro style, River City Ransom reference... I'm going to have to check that one out. I mostly do co-op on 360 but I do have a PS3 as well.
@Jimi - How is Goldeneye Reloaded? Does it do justice to the original? Have you tried the multiplayer?

Yeah, Scott Pilgrim is an awesome game. I think it's 10 bucks for both system. There's also a character available for DLC. As long as you download the latest patch, it allows for jump in jump out co-op. It's a blast and very cheap so another reason not to feel bad. And I must say, it has the best soundtrack in any game ever. Well not ever but it does has a amazing soundtrack. There is no Online co-op, but since you're looking for Couch Co-Op that shouldn't be a problem.
