    Hi There...

    I've just built myself a second PC, and so I need some suggestions for what games I can use to show off to my friends.

    I would have liked to use MoH:AA, but it seems that the game insists on needing a dedicated server, so that's out of the question.

    Beyond that, I haven't got a clue.

    Suggestions, please!

    Doom II (may be old, it still roxors :p )
    GLQuake
    Quake3
    Unreal Tournament
    Worms World Party
    Colin McRae Rally 2

    Are all excellent :)
     
  10. nfs as Chastity already said is need for speed, plus there's new one coming out soon, nfs hot persut 2, i think u can play that on lan.

    and aeo, is pardon for spelling error :) i meant aoe as in age of empires. for fun lan play i'd recommend first one, 2nd one is just too much to control to have fun. although it has different playable units

    There have been several releases of old board type games that are very fun to play on a lan.... Risk is very cool.

    Serious SAM 1 & 2 are very cheap games with good graphics and a ton of monsters and ammo... A fairly unique aspect is that it's a FPS with a CO-OP mode. Also, you can really play with the graphics settings to get it to run on a weaker system.

    Both Diablo I and II can be fun on a LAN.

    Old Dungeon Keeper can be fun on a LAN.

    At Wal-Mart you can get Unreal Tournament Game-Of-The-Year Edition for $10.00 and put it on both systems. When it was released, a PIII-600 was about the fastest processor out. So that game will run fine on a low end system with a low end video card (more a CPU intensive game).

    co-op modes always make for a good change instead of trying to blow yer mate into chunky kibbles :p
