I'm looking for games that 2 (or more) people can play on one computer with a couple controllers. I'm looking for some stuff so when my buddies come over, two of us can play instead of just watching the other person.. Anyone know if the following games will do this?
Madden NFL 08
Fifa Soccer 08
NBA Live 08
I couldn't find a definitive answer if those games are 2+ Player or not (without online multiplaying)
Are there any other suggestions out there? Maybe some other sports or racing games?
Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Beat Em up style adventure RPG game reminiscent of Fighting Force games that you can level up and and gain new powers to use on your heroes. I believe there are also X-men Legends games with the same type of gameplay.
With 2 Pads on PC, the best game's I've played are: Splinter Cell (Can't remember which one), and Shadowgrounds (although the style isn't to everyone's taste, it's 3rd person shooter with 2 people on one screen.)
[#63ff00][#009b63]Hey, I was looking for the same thing for my media center Vista PC. If you are still on XP there are a wealth of games you can play, but with vista you are a bit more limited.
On vista I use:
- You Don't Know Jack 1-5 (no controllers needed - 3 players max)
- Spiderman Friend or Foe
- Monopoly 2008
- Little Fighter (2d side scrolling/fighting game - 4 players and free)
- Tiger Woods
On XP I had: (these are older games, but still very fun)
- Need for Speed
- Roll Cage
- Deathtrack Racing (racings, power-ups, missles, fun)
- Tony Hawk 2
If you find any other good 2 player games let me know.
Host a LAN party! Of course your friends will have to drag their computers to your house.
With just 2,4, 6 or 8 friends you can play numerous games. If cost is a problem there are a lot of older games out there that are still fun for groups and have very low computer requirements. Warcraft II or III is great. Starcraft, Diablo I or II, or Battlefield 1942 with numerous mods never gets old.
Hi there! Back when we didn't have 2 laptops, not the courage to install a video game on the company laptop , I played the Chronicles of Narnia (the first one, don't remember the exact name) with my husband and we had lots of fun. Try it out and if you find similar games, pls post them here, I'll be checking this site for (good) news, hopefully!
Burnout Paradise is a good'n that I play with my sister every once and a while, it's "party mode" is a lot of fun... Street Fighter 4 recently was released for PC, which is awesome and the Guilty Gear Series is another good fighter... I currently have Guilty Gear X2 #Reloaded installed right now, and am certain that it has 2 player capabilities on the same compie. I guess I haven't played more than 10 minutes of it, but GRID looked like a good racer, and I wouldn't be surprised if you could do split screen or trade off in that game, don't take my word for it, though... Enjoy, I suppose!
I just bought 4 X-Box 360 controllers and the PC signal receiver for my HTPC. As they are being shipped, I am doing some research on what's available for the PC.
What kinds of shooters, sports, and racing games do you recommend. Is it possible to play Halo 2? I notice many games released on PC don't have the same multiplayer capability that their console counterparts do have. I'm talking about multiplayer with 1 screen and 1 computer, not LAN.
If I can game multiplayer on the HTPC, I think my HTPC would successfully replace the DVD, Blu-Ray, Cable Box, CD/Radio, and video game systems. The HTPC could be only piece of hardware I'd need in the living room! Now what to do with all the superfluous wires?
