Recommend Some Multi-player Games

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Greetings OCN,

So my friends and I are looking for a new game to fill up our time and we're having trouble finding something. We kicked WoW a few months ago and picked up LoL for the time being but, as we all have played DotA and LoL for quite a while, this is also becoming stale.

So I ask you guys, what is a good game for a group of about five people to get into?

Guild Wars? Global Agenda?

If it was four I'd have said Sacred 2 or Left 4 Dead series.

For an FPS I would suggest Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Also try Day of Defeat:Source (old but with excellent and realistci "game feel").

I am not impressed by Modern Warfare series.....

Couldn't have said it better myself. This was one of our first options, but it just got too tedious.

I actually purchased DoD (not source) in a mega-cheap steam bundle but have yet to play it. Will definitely give this a look.

Never really thought about Dead Rising 2, even though the first one was awesome. As for Sacred 2, how is the multiplayer? I'm assuming, with no reason, that it is similar to D2. We are all big diablo fans so this might be a good choice. Realistically, any game we play is just going to be a hold-over until D3 comes out anyway.

System Shock 2....brings back some great memories, but we're looking for something a little more modern.
