Hmm, smells like biased fan boi but i might be wrong.



Battlefield for all those rediculously long LAN nights should be included somewhere as a mention but what astrodudepsu said for an all time cannot be argued.

You just gotta admit that and game that has 11 million people paying monthly is the best.

I only count a game as LAN party material if you can host your own local server. No trying to funnel several connections through a single residential broadband, and no unknowns popping into your game that aren't physically present.

So here's my list. Hosting a LAN party in just several hours. :) 

- Unreal Tournament has been a staple for my gaming circle.
- Dawn of War, with their reinforcement feature, redefined RTS. And the graphics? LOVE IT.
- Star Wars: Jedi Academy. Light sabers. Force powers. Definitely. Oh yeah, there's guns, too.
- Battlefield in all its variations is great IF you have at least 8 - 10 gamers.
- Scorch3D. Nothing like some classic artillary.
- FarCry is pretty, and good, and pretty good.

I miss MechWarrior, wish a new version would come out targeting today's technology featuring quality LAN play. The new StarCraft II is looking good (got to get in on the Beta!). I've also been looking into FreeSpace 2 with the FreeSpace Open mods, but can't provide a review yet.

Cheers,
-Causticus

p.s. World of Warcraft is NOT a LAN game (nor is any other MMORPG). Geez.
June 5, 2010 5:08:32 PM

For me it was years of

Quake series (esp Quake 2)
Unreal series
Diablo 2
C&C

Hell yeah, AVP2 was a great game!
It's a shame AVP3 was such a Failure in multiplayer:cry: 
June 8, 2010 11:46:34 PM

COD 4 definitely, used to play Battlefield 2 and was saved by the fairness of COD 4. Lol used to get 5 kills for 20 deaths on B2 and on COD 4 found it much much fairer and get about equal kills to equal deaths, perhaps sometimes slightly more kills than deaths. Command and conquer could be a worthy rts multiplayer game worth noting. AVP looks rubbish, sorry for being offensive i mean it looks very unfair because of the different races, stupid predators - predators eat their food not use weapons to kill things therefore they should be called hunters, and it looks like it has that crappy battlefield 2 like pound your enemies. "I shoot you in the back and you turn round and kill me after i've wasted a whole magazine accurately on you". Crysis is bad online to, it's a good single player game but people keep moving around too much shooting excessively at each other getting no where, on COD 4 there has never been a time that i have felt that i have been unfairly treated by the game; all the time i get shot i feel that the player who got me deserved that shot completely. I don't usually tend to like games that seem very popular i like to stick to those games that remain in the background like Turok (the new one) but COD 4 and COD 2 were definitely the greatest games that i bought for multiplayer and single player. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is equally as awesome, it's an indoor shooter though and like COD it's impressive that you can kill efficiently and quickly.

You guys are missing the big #1.

Tribes 2. It's currently free, and currently the best.

The learning curve will frighten any noobies/COD players off. Beware.
June 9, 2010 2:15:45 PM

i like turok to be honest, that's a bit of a pounder game too, but it has style. The stealth knife attacks are pretty good too, more impressive than COD but takes more time. No one has mentioned HALO 2/3 - why!! That's good since it's easy to play, still feeling some unfairness but prefer it to battlefield 2 which has that stupid cross-hair hit probability even when you've gone prone on the floor and given it time for good accuracy.
June 9, 2010 3:27:53 PM

Counter Strike 1.6, or Source
Tribes or Tribes 2
Halo 1

Insanely fun, amazing. Imagine flying sky high with a jetpack at 200mph only to "ski" down a hill and fly up the next one after that at 300 mph? All the while carrying the enemies flag being chased by someone shooting flying discs at you only to land on the hill in the perfect spot to soar ahead of the pursuer at 400mph to jetpack halway aross the map for a flag cap. Prepare for the adrenaline to flow!

Play Tribes 2 for free! ^^ (I am not an advertiser, I just love this not so well known game.. that really is the best of the best and still has pretty decent graphics for an old game!)
June 13, 2010 3:50:46 PM

it's amazing because i've never really heard of that game, the game that seems very popular around the country in the UK is rune-scape.
June 14, 2010 6:07:48 AM

A few top PC games ranked in no particular order.

EVE Online

All players on one server and essentially one person's actions can resonate throughout the entire server.

Diablo II

A game made around 1999/2000 still going on strong, what more can you ask for?

World of Warcraft

11 million subscribers, no doubt that it should be in here at least.

Team Fortress 2

Incredibly balanced FPS with top notch competitive community.

Counterstrike

Long standing FPS game within the FPS community.

Warcraft 3

Almost unimaginable amounts of custom maps, and more specifically DotA found it's audience here.

Starcraft

Does anything need to be said here?

BF2 has been around longer, and is still quite popular. I only put them in that order because CoD4 has not been played for as long. Not to mention, there is a much better competitive aspect of the Battlefield series because they are a team game, where you rely on your teammates for support, instead of just the run and gun nature of Call of Duty. So in terms of multiplayer, BF2 surpasses CoD4 due to its longevity and more team oriented gameplay.

actually battlefield 2 is alright, been playing on it recently. Just need to take time to adjust to the croshair. The croshair needs time for it to adjust itself properly to shoot acuratelyi noticed, there's not really any recoil so you can't tell why your shots are missing. machine gun though is bad for shooting at long distances though, this makes it realistic, but opens the game up to unfairness as it bases itself more on luck. Had some go on single player and got better so going back online on the game lol. I prefer it as a first person shooter though, and the vehicles have become boring. I still feel COD 4 is better, although i do admit i used to prefer battlefield 2 because of it's exitement with vehicles and explosions, i bought the game instead of COD 4 lol, buth have both games now
