2 player LAN games?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I've always wanted to have a couple of PC's with the same games on, so that when I have friends over, we can play some games together. Well, I got a laptop in July and I've already installed most of my games on it, but most are limited to one PC (like BC2, COH, DiRT2, Steam games and Blizzard games where logging in on 2 PC's at the same time is impossible). Are there any games that I can play on both PC's? I have most C&C games (first decade box) and they rock for LAN, but I'm looking for something newer/FPS. I believe COD4 is a possibility, but it isn't that great for only 2 players.

Don't suggest: CS games, COD games, Borderlands, UT3, Swat 4, Diablo 2, BF games.

__________________________
Currently I have:
RTS:
Any C&C game made before 2003
WarCraft 3
Original StarCraft (most of my friends won't play this with me because of graphics tongue.gif)
AoE 3
COH Online

Racing:
Trackmania

FPS:
COD4
Nexuiz

Other:
Alien Swarm
Minecraft

Lost Planet 2 (coop campaign), COD:WaW (zombie mode and coop), DoW 2, Borderlands, Split Second Velocity, Nexuiz. I've listed something from almost every lan gaming friendly genre and they've all been tested by yours truly.

Would I have to buy Lost Planet 2 x2 to play on both PC's?
COD:WaW isn't my kind of game, sadly.
DoW 2: Same question as Lost Planet. I assume I will, considering it's THQ.
Borderlands isn't my kinda game (I have tried it). Sad that they changed the graphics to the cartoony style, I might've bought it if they had stuck to the original concept.
Racing games might be a possibility when I get a new wheel, so I have one for each PC (won't happen anytime soon, my Momo is still as good as new). Only racing game I play with my friends is Trackmania, since it works great with a keyboard and is free.
Nexuiz looks sick.

with sins of a solar empire you can let someone play locally on the lan without buying a second copy... just you will die of old age before you can figure the damn game out lol.

Yeah, it'll have to be accessible.

What about UT3? It's runs well enough, and with bots it can be a fun game to lan.

That and Borderlands!

Don't want to pay for it only for LAN (I wouldn't play it alone).

Well, it's only like $20 now, and people still play online, and it's a fun Time waster. (UT3)

And if you've never played Borderlands, you should! It's a blast! Real fun!

Also, Titan Quest is fun for a lan. And CS:S

(My brother and I have played all of these games together, that's why I mention these)

CoD: WaW probably will be the best because of the zombies mode. Or also Black Ops because of the zombies and even Co-Op Campaign.
