Top 5 Lan Games

Updated on April 14, 2012


That's right dudes. I'm bringin lan party back. There are too many games out there now that require you to play over the interwebs. This here is a list of the best lan games for party's that are sure to make for a good time. So sit back, order some pizza, grab some beers, invite your friends, and lets get started.

1. Starcraft Broodwars

Duh. The best RTS lan game there is out there. Who doesn't love burning some zerglings with flamethrowers? All the built in maps are challenging , and the range of strategies is endless. Once you all get bored of playing the standard maps there's an a**load of awesome Used Map Settings maps you can download. 

The game is easy to set up, it's cheap, and it's perfect for a 8 person lan party.

2. Quake 3:Team Arena

Sweet FPS game made specifically for multiplayer. There are 4 different types of modes.

  • Free for All - Up to 16 players.
  • Team Deathmatch - Team sizes are generally 2 teams of 4. Great for 8 FPS gamers.
  • Tournament - A 1v1 Match. This is where you can make some awesome points with your friends. 
  • Capture the Flag

Nothing like a bunch of dudes sitting around shooting each other shouting profanities.

3. Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge

Really great RTS game with very challenging maps. It's a game of the (Allies vs Soviets) vs Yuri. Ton's of really fun catch phrases, by the end of the night everyone will be talking with Russian accents for sure. This is the only game I can think of where you can make your spies turn into anything...even Mummies or Crocodiles! You are able to control ground, air, and water units, and each race has their own specials. 

4. Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction

Very fun LAN gaming with this one. Either play the game all the way through with friends, log in and have some duels, or you can always download a trainer and HAX up your character to a super high level and play the end game stuff. Very addicting game, with some real fun mods you can download when you get bored of the standard play. This game is worth several hours of gameplay and very fun to play with other people who are more into the Role Playing scene.

5. Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter

Incredible game. Team Deathmatch and Co-op modes. It has the same awesome feeling as the first one, but with much better graphics (1080p). Challenge the FPS power of your lan party and try playing Co-op on serious mode for some real wicked fun. Definitely worth checking out.
