My school is hosting a LAN party and we need to figure out what games to play. We are looking for free/open-source games that we can play. Any suggestions as to what are the best? Thanks.

I don't think there is such a thing as free/open source games that can be played on lan.

Realistically, there isn't any free/open source games that would be LAN suitable.

quake 2 anymore is free and excellent. plus there's a few other games you can pick up for nickels or maybe even free. also look at BF2 demo and BF2142 demo. Quake 4 demo works as well if your machiens are beefy enough to run it. Age of Empires 3 demo.<br />
<br />
if you get the hint here the key word is demos. not many maps but you can play the game...

Indeed, FEAR multiplayer pack is free. Have we all forgotten so soon? The UT2004 demo has a lot of content. Doom (the original) is shareware now, too.

That and FEAR would make for a good, free LAN.

something you need to be careful of when having a LAN at school is the violence. When i was in HS I tried having a fundraiser LAN and the teachers in the end wouldn't let me because we were "murdering each other with blood spatting everywhere. we don't think this would be very school appropriate". then i got maddddd, then i pulled out my deag, and I SAID TOM CRUSE COME OUT OF THE CLOSET..........
