Looking to be going to a mates place in a week or two, planning to have a small LAN gathering and was wondering what some of your reccomendations would be. the specs of the computers that will be used vary, but as a ~very rough~ benchmark all of my mates can run rocket league (lmao) without issue.

Some guy made a thread about low spec FPS Games and I thought that'd probably work too but I didn't want to hijack his thread.

yeah, there would be intoxicating materials.

thanks. (game doesn't need to be an fps) p.s I know this is an aids thread im sorry
Games Considered so far
- Overwatch // 3 or so people can run this. Those who can't would probably just watch or play smash bros
- Diablo 2 (Modded)
- CSGO
- Titan Quest
- Age of Empires 2
- Civ 5

If there are any sorts of intoxicating materials there, you may have a lot of fun with "Rockets Rockets Rockets". It's not so much fun sober, though.

There seem to be a lot of indie games that are geared towards local-multiplayer which you might enjoy, many of which are free to download and could be worth trying out.

I haven't played them, but Gang Beasts and Trench Run seem like fun.

Killing Floor is also a really good LAN game as it so happens. It was in fact originally intended for LAN play exclusively so it's actually very accommodating on that end.

Torchlight 1 and 2 are cool as well

Back when I did regular LANs with friends in high school, we almost exclusively played AoE2 (and AoE2 HD when it came out). Later in the night as people crashed, the folks that stayed up later would play minecraft and then sometimes me and my 1 tf2 friend would play mge (or arena 1v1 if i didn't want to set it up).

Me and my friends also played through a really small indie MORPG once, which is super fun. Some of them stayed up all night to finish it. It was a game I helped in the development process in (and engineered the sound/ made the music for) when I was like 13ish, and it is actually surprisingly decent on lan.

It wasn't originally a lan game, but I could probably hook you guys up with the server files that you would need to run it if you're ever interested.

Mainly AoE tho

Nothing's really fun sober tbh.

Mario Party so when your friendship inevitably breaks down you can have an actual fist fight and not have an awkward 1 week of "not talking to you on steam."

Me and my friends have had lan gettogethers in the past and a lot of the games we've enjoyed the most have been co-op games or games where we can fuck each other over, even when it's games we wouldn't play normally
Shit we had the most fun with was:
Killing Floor
Warcraft 3's Pudge Wars mod
Terraria
Star Wars Battlefront 2 (Force pushing people into walls is fucking funny)
Spelunky Coop

Gang Beasts is probably the most fun LAN game I've played, and that was sober. I can only imagine it while intoxicated.
