Good LAN Games?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So, what are some good offline LAN games? Any kind, with decent graphics.

Me and my buddies beat Borderlands, UT3 is getting old. None of them like CSS. What else is there for offline LAN games?

Starcraft 1, Empire Earth 1 and 2 (and their expansions), SW Empire at war + expansion... Mostly old games, no one gives a crap about good LAN play any more.

Yea, from my experience i can say that LAN is pretty much dead... Some of the good games i played in LAN were Warcraft 3, Counter Strike 1.6, Diablo 2, Starcraft 1, Titans Quest, Yu-Gi-Oh, Heroes 3, Rise of Nations, Age of Empires 2.

I still have LAN parties and some of the games we play are:

Longer Play: Dawn Of War (The first series), Age of Empires 1 & 2, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 and Generals/Zero Hour.

Short Play: The free game: Teeworlds & Trackmania.

I pretty much only LAN on my 4 comps, so I can give you some good input here. Company of Heroes is a must buy and I also think Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth with the Witch King expansion is worthy as well. If you like shooting games where your friends can save you from death, check out Operation Flashpoint: Red River. It's a ton of fun and saving your buddies just in the nick of time is a lot of fun! tongue.gif

the original command and conquer: red alert, starcraft, age of empires 2 and CS1.6 still is the most popular games we play at our local LAN events(mostly private and the same people so theres the reason). Lately we have started playing through single player campaigns and console as a sort of bonus and more relaxed play. We realy enjoyed the last Monkey Island(wii), silent hill(wii), darksiders(ps3), prototype(ps3), resident evil(ps1), supersmash bros(n64, gamecube or wii), zelda the ocarina of time(wii) and tecno kitten adventure on xbox360 :3 oh and that unicorn attack game(yes we were heavily intoxicated during the last 2 titles)

Yeah, especially when you're the only one who has the dedicated server set up and everyone wants things a certain way.
