What games are perfect for LAN parties?

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

Have you ever asked yourself this question?

Well, I have. Everytime my friends and I plan a LAN party we come up with these questions:

  • What games do we all play?
  • Which of these games will run on everyones PC?
  • What games allow one key for more than one person in a network?
  • What games are fun to play for everyone, even if they don’t know the game yet?

If you aren’t a small group, these questions can be tough to answer. The first question is maybe the easiest one, but what about the rest? Does everyone has the latest hardware, or do you have some guys with old graphic cards that can’t play the latest action game?

Chances are, that you can’t give one right answer to these questions.

I started this blog to help you, to find the right answers. My goal is to present you a new game every week that does not require the latest hardware or a great knowledge about the game. There are many old games that are fun to play and some of them have mods (modifications) that make will raise your interests, even if you weren’t interested at the game itself.

For all those who are now disappointed that I don’t give them a list of games for their LAN party. Here are two games you probably know and maybe even love:

Both of those games are classic and should not be missing on any LAN-party!

My first game presentation will be sometime in the next week, so be sure you don’t miss it!
