Hi, I plan on hosting a lan and there will be at least 4 of us playing.
I want suggestions on strategy games (realtime and turnbased are fine) RPGs and maybe a couple of shooters.
I already have played many games that I know would be nice and have/can get copies for everyone. I prefer more recent games but anything with quality will do even if its 2D.
The lowest end rig can run crysis 2 on medium.
When we have LANs the games that tend to get thrown around for multiplayer are: Killing Floor Alien Swarm Cod4-ProMod2 Unreal Tournament Age of Empires 2 - be careful, as over LAN the game has issues with multiple operating systems and Windows 7 in general. We find that if everyone is using XP it runs fine. Battlefield 1942 Free Demo
These games are either cheap/ free and still gives everyone a good time.
Also when I host LANs there tend to be about 10 people so there is enough to go around and a lot of the time people will splinter and play random games online or go on a console or 2.
To add to the RTS list:
- StarCraft 1 (spawn games for up to 8 players, so only 1 disc required.) - C&C Generals & Zero Hour - C&C 3
