Any good online multiplayer games?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Happy New 2011 Guys and Girls!

I am in a bit of pickle right now, and I need your exquisite gaming experience to help me out.

This is the problem: Two of my best friends went to Denmark for college.
They are going to stay there until the Easter Holidays , and the only way we can interact is through Facebook and Skype, but there is only so much to talk about, we wanna GAME

So I tried the games from Skype, they suck and so does Farmville.
We had a go at Miniclip games, but the only one we could find were 2 player and not much fun. Some card games turned out to be fun.

So this is where you can lend me a tip;

The game has to be playable for 3 players or 4 (but 2 is ok if the the game is really fun), it must be able to run on my friends basic laptops and lousy net connection, and if possible be entirely online, but again if the game is really awesome we wont let any installer stay in our way.

And here is the real problem, my friends are girls, so no CS and WOW.

Team Fortress 2 has its fair share of (very good) girl gamers. But then again it might not run on your friend's laptop and the game itself is huge in terms of capacity.

How about... Alien Swarm? Full online, installer isn't that big, very fun to play with up to 4 players and there are female gamers playing it. Free on Steam, bro.

You can play Civilization 4 or 5 online. Slow paced though. You play a turn then send the save file by email. Games can last months.

Wow I never expected so many replies, you guys are living proof that OCN still is the best online community.

The bad part is that even though I see why you recommended these games, they will never work, we need something more casual, short, easy and fun.

World of Goo would have been great, but sadly there is no multiplayer for PC, Rentz (which is a compendium card game) was cool to play.

We might give AOE a try since one of the girls played it once, but keep in mind that my friends aren't what we would call gamers.
So please try to think of something more casual.

I just found an interesting site (kongregate), any more like this?
