Haven't ever been to a Lan party but I think the best thing for one would be to just have a group of people that are fun to be around. When people congregate and have fun, the rest kind of falls into place.

the little quirk about LAN parties that I enjoy are when you start to play a game less seriously and cooperatively start to joke around in game similar to how a group of people will wing having fun in the city. When your group goal is something completely different than a game goal, a new journey has formed

It's been a long time since I've attended a LAN party (it was an Amiga LAN party at that, with some demo scene contests et all..). But I'd say the opportunity to learn about both software and hardware trickery with your fellow enthusiasts and enjoy a nice day/few days together sharing your hobby!

Personally I've never been to a LAN party, however i can imagine the best part would be seeing all the other rigs and hardware, and possibly receiving advise on upgrades/games.

a LAN party is a get-together where a group of like-minded people connect their PC's/Consoles together via a LAN cord (or wireless LAN) to play games together. It's a lot of fun.

Thanks AMD and OCN!

My favorite part of a lan party is playing my favorite games with my good friends, all in the same room!

My favorite thing when it comes to LAN parties, honestly.......is socializing with like minded people. The 2 LAN parties I've been to, stupidly enough, I never even played games. I sat around, socialized with everybody, and had a few beers with them (well the ones old enough anyway). I had an absolute blast.

Actually, the last one I went to, I let the owner of the house's kids' play on my rig, while I socialized with the adults and had a few beers with them, lol.

So yeah, to me LAN parties are more of a social event rather than playing games. Heck, the next one I go to, I might not even bring my rig.

Also, its really neat when you're encouraged to bring old equipment with you, to trade or sell at the LAN. Last one I was at, we hooked an OCN member up with a full water loop for his build (CPU and GPU) for $20. biggrin.gif

I <3 OCN LAN parties (they weren't official ones, but we were all OCN members from the PNW).

Lan parties are fun because you have better communication with your friends, and beer... beer is good

Thanks for the give-away! I think LAN parties all about the spirit of camaraderie while gaming. Who doesn't love to own other people in a group of friends?!
