My friends and I did a lot of LAN parties when we were growing up. While there was about a solid 8 of us that would play together, we would more frequently play in smaller groups of about 4 - 6 of us. And we played A LOT of games, so there are plenty of memorable experiences from my childhood.
So, with that in mind... I wanted to focus this list a little bit. I tried to keep this list of games from being too old school and too modern. Below is a solid set of games that I remember my friends and I playing the most at our LAN parties and thus creating a ridiculous amount of awesome memories. The order in no way means anything; they all hold a special place in my heart.
I also personally believe these games are excellent for smaller LAN parties of about 3-4 people. Sure, there are games in the list that can benefit by having more players, but with the right settings, map selection and a good group of people, perhaps the following games could create some memorable experiences of your own if you've never played them.
If you have
played any of these games though, please be sure and share your own memories about these games. I'd love to hear about them in the comments!
