List of LAN games

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I go to LAN things a few times a month, with usually 5-8 people, and we are looking for more games to play. Most FPS's are out of the question, cause most arent too fun with 8 people :\\

So I was thinking if you guys know any RTS/RPG/Small-scale FPS games we should get. Cost isn't an issue if the game is fun enough to buy. Thanks in advance,
Me.

Edit: List of games we play already:

BFME2/RotWK (sooooo fun)
Men of War
L4D2
Sins of a Solar Empire
Red Alert 2

SCII Has no LAN support, and there is no LAN mod/crack yet that I know of.

Killing floor (supports up to 6 people) is an awsome small scale FPS.
Supreme commander 2 is a great fast based RTS as well.
As far as RPG's go... Borderlands,

If you were into the classics or hardcore games.

Supreme commander Forged Alliance for intense RTS
Sins of a solar Entrenchment is hardcore, long RTS
with an rpg.... WoW ???????????? i know its not LAN but if you guys are in the same room it might help?

Garrys Mod is good with a few people ,though its more for fun rather than skill.

FPS are too fun as hell with a few people, go into pugs and play with other people.

Some FPSes that are actually playable with ONLY the people in the room:
Battlegrounds (source mod)
The Ship (other mod)


Me an my friends (around 5-7 people normally) play FPSes and just either do just LAN games, play the extreme bots on a team, or go into pub games and either get on one team, where we have less people on our side, or split among the sides.

Old command and conquer games should be dirt cheap and are great RTSes, the newer ones are too.

League of Legends. its like DotA, but i think it is a lot easier to understand.
Mauls and TDs are fun in WC3 too.

For all the LAN sessions I've been to, TF2 seems to be a game that shows up at all of them. That, and Starcraft: Brood War at most of them. Maybe throw in Sins of a Solar Empire, but games in that typically last a long time.

C&C generals / zero hour and the Nproject mod for them are fun.
Also warcraft 3 and the frozen throne + custom maps.
killing floor for some team based fps fun.
