This topic is for discussing games we like and dislike, for LanOC v7.0. The more a certain game is mentioned, the more likely it will be kept for the final list. This is not a tournament list, nor an official list. If you agree on a game listed in the topic, feel free to repeat it, so we can tell what catches interest. And if you disagree, feel free to say so with some reason why. I will keep the list up to date, and 'spoiled' to keep it condensed. (Alternatives), {edits and info}, and [Tournament options] will be bracketed off accordingly.
And so...
The List:

I didn't know there was a LAN option for GTA4, but i think that type of game would be fun.
Also i'm not sure what the settings were for TF2, but i think that will continue to be a LAN favorite just because everyone has it and it can be played on most systems. I prefer Payload maps, and i've seen some MODS that measure how far the cart went in a 5 minute time period or how long it takes a team to capture points. Also i like having a larger team. Teams of 6 i think are too small to cover the maps that were built for 20+ people... If there is enough support, i think having less teams with more people would be more fun.

MW2 any map any mode
BC2 *cringes a little* any map any mode
Dirt 2!!!!!!!!! * !! *
TF2 is always good
Flatout 2 ( i guess there is a patch but it cant be applied to our drag and drop..)
Shattered Horizon!!! ( come on this is like $10 on steam every third week)


I agree with Tiffany, i was hoping for more structured FPS action.. Though i was never lacking for a game.

I really liked the idea of the Flatout 2 Tourney because someone who hadnt played it before, or isnt very good at gaming had a chance to win.. Compared to a FPS tourney or RTS..

Honestly at this point im tired of UT games.. they're old and dated and playing against you guys that have mastered it years ago seems to be just an exercise in being target practice to someone who knows the exploits and tricks.

I think im done now..

I have to agree with this. I've been to 2 or 3 Ft Wayne Gamers events where UT: Wars (or whatever it's called) is played and i still have no idea what i'm doing when i'm playing. I'm pretty much there to give others points and easy kills...
the only problem is that all the new games are online only or there are so many in a genre (FPS or RTS) that finding someone else or a few other people who have the game are are good enough to want to play it at a LAN is hard to do. I have some friends who love the Civ series, but to spend 4 hours playing a round at a LAN doesn't seem practical. Also some of the RTS take time to learn and are hard to pick up when playing against someone who love those types of games and play them lots.

I want to play more tf2 and mw2

My tf2 servers had issues so I ended up just hosting a stock 24 man server. That shouldn't be a problem in the future.

i know that Reaper and i would both be for track mania.

( track mania is another good " anyone can pick it up" game for tourneys imho)

Has anyone tried Battlefield Heroes in a lan? is it easy to pickup? install? etc? i know its free.

But there's something to be said about the occasional old school game. I know there's a couple people that complain about the unfair advantage persistent stats and perks give. UT is about all about FPS skill, not how long you played before hand. Not that I care, I'm just repeating what I've heard.

I have played many hours in Battlefied Heroes and I can tell you it would not work well within a LAN setting. It uses matchmaking software to determine matches and the only way to play with your friends is to join them via your friends list. You could rent a server but I don't think you could make it private. It would rock with LAN support but I don't see that happening since it is a browser launched game.

Modern Warfare 2 is fine with people who already know each other at LAN parties, but again, it sucks for large lan parties or ones you have to travel for, because if nobody is on your friends list, you have no way to join a game on a lan.

Good to know about Battlefield Heroes, I considered mentioning it but I've never tried it.

I can agree that UT is about FPS ability. Personally, I've gotten tired of Cod4, and I'm not getting MW2 yet. For realistic FPS games, I'd probably go with BFBC2 or CoD2 (since I have it), but the realistic FPS games all kinda become the same in terms of gameplay after awhile. CS:S Gungame was cool, but it just got old quick for me. The genres are becoming watered down somewhat. I was thinking, R6V2 would be awesome no matter what we play, Lersar can vouch with me that it's a blast for even just 2 players. And UT Invasion would be good for free-play, or last-man-standing elimination (if you die, you switch to spectate for good, last alive wins).

For racing, I do like the contact aspect of Flatout. Trackmania is accessible, but is also limited to 8 players I believe. But I would enjoy Grid and Dirt, either or.

For RTS, I agree that hour+ matches kinda suck. I like something faster. DoW tends to be fast, around 20 minutes sometimes for a full win. Yet again, 8 player max. But that is reasonable I suppose, as you could do PvE in tight groups. But I'm not as excited in playing DoW as I used to be.

Edit: added The List to the first post, trying to compose a list of games mentioned that people (even some) seem interested in and would work for LAN. Please feel free to tell me if I missed something, repeat what has been mentioned, or tell if something does not work for Lanning. +1 Draymac for the advice on BF Heroes.

Have you played any FPS games that haven't been mentioned? Also, Lersar mentioned that map/mode requests would help. Feel free to mention what maps and modes you like for games you like. Or even tournament ideas! Any advice and ideas are helpful, and we have enough time in getting them now to be able to tweak and adjust before the big Lan. We just need to keep this ball rolling, because we are getting some good information. Thank you all for your input so far! (I totally feel like a staff member here)

Totally understood! Its just my opinion that UT winds up being a twitch fest with exploit city going on. ( knowing exactly where to stand that you cant get hit and you can hit them)

And i consider myself to be fair to midland at FPS.....

I also agree about the persistent stats and perks..

So, FEAR? maybe or Serious Sam?

I've been meaning to try out FEAR some. If I remember right, there is a place online where you can get the multiplayer game directly from the developers for free (which is awesome of them for releasing that). I'm also looking at buying the Serious Sam HD games, if they run for me and are any good. Were you referring to the HD or originals? I've never played any of them so I don't know what is better or anything.

I mean the HD version. Apparently they're the same as the original except with support for modern hardware. Watch on Steam they do free weekends all the time maybe you can catch it and try it. I bought it when it was less than $10 on steam.

Here is a list of free FPS games .
