Brotherly Love

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
o/

My brother and I are very close, but this fall, I head off to school at MIT. Would you all recommend some PC games that would be fun to play together/against each other.

-Currently, we play Halo: Reach together on our XBox.
-We want something that is kinda "pick up and play," like a console FPS, but for PC (because we both have ample computers).
-No MMO's. I'm a big Eve player, and he is into WoW. I've started an account on the latter so that I can eventually run dungeons with his guild, but I am level 20 and he is level 85. Point being, it will be a while before we can do that together.
-I'm feeling Ghost Recon Online would be a good choice, but until that comes out, what should we play?
-It doesn't have to be shooting, but just something fun to play.

Oh gosh, I've confused myself... Thanks for your input!

Civilization V is another great game, you can play the single player or online. I know the single player is good, but I have not played it online.

Borderlands and Left 4 Dead 2. Many a night was spent bonding with my brother with those 2 games.

I cannot recommend Portal 2 and the Left 4 Dead series enough, both are about the best you'll find for a co-op game.

Yeah, I loved the co-op on Portal 2. The best part is that steam released their map authoring software, which should up the replay value.
