Need some multiplayer suggestions

#1 Edited by Meteora (5787 posts) -

Or more elaborately, I need games that can be played online with a group of friends, usually 3-6 people, if not more. So two player co-op is out of the question. Also no FPS games.

Games that we have already play/tried/exhausted/rejected:

  • Starcraft 2
  • League of Legends
  • Heroes of Newerth
  • Counterstrike: Source
  • TF2
  • Bad Company 2
  • L4D/L4D2
  • Minecraft
  • WoW
  • Borderlands
  • Magicka
  • Battle for Wesnoth

Edited in:

  • Alien Swarm
  • Terraria

Can't think of anything else that we can possibly play. Throw whatever ideas out, even if they may seem trashy/mediocre. Thanks in advance for the help.

Skydrift. It's Mario Kart in airplanes with gorgeous graphics. If you want MMOs you could also try Lord of the Rings Online since it's free to play.

And if you like LoL and HoN you should play DotA 2 when it comes out or if you can sneak all of you into the beta.

Diablo 2, because it's a great game and I never miss an opportunity to promote it.

@Galiant: Thanks for continually adding new games to your list, much appreciated.

I'm about 10 hours in on star trek online, its decent fun and it would be way better if i had 4-5 players for an away team at all times, the space combat is fun too.

C&C Generals Zero Hour is a classic, so if you don't mind the dated graphics pick it up. Although, actually finding a place where you can buy it at seems quite hard. It surprised me that there is no digital version of The First Decade anywhere.

Super Monday Night Combat is free. Ping me if you need invites.

Chess Online is a good one.

@Meteora: Alien Swarm is pretty fun - 4 player co-op in an Aliens-like setting. The game is pretty short though... but you can always get some new custom maps.

Battle Forge is somewhat fun as well (card/unit battle game RTS) - but they recently made changes to their Tomes... kinda makes it too expensive to expand your collection now.

@JCTango: Yeah I know about Alien Swarm. I should probably put that on the list of games we've rejected, because my friends don't want to play it for some reason.

Keep throwing niche ideas at me, you guys.
