Favorite Multiplayer Games

Ranking my favorite multiplayer games, along with a short description of each choice.

List items

  • Vanilla, The Burning Crusade, and Wrath of the Lich King were hands down the greatest experience I've had in gaming. Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria were fun, wasn't a fan of any of the other expansions.

  • Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne had amazing campaigns, and then the multiplayer...I spent countless hours playing custom maps with friends and climbing the Battle.Net ladder.

  • The first game I became addicted to. Diablo II and Lord of Destruction were way ahead of their time, the story and cinematics were top tier. It was so fun leveling new characters and trying out all types of builds in PvP. However, my favorite part of Diablo II was magic-finding, I would spend countless hours "MFing" and competing with friends on who would find better items each day, and then eventually trade the items I found for items they found.

  • Way ahead of its time, blew my 11-year old mind playing this for the first time on the Gamecube after playing its predecessor for so long on the N64. Still me and my friends go-to party game even now.

  • A toxic community, but one of the most recent games on which I have created unforgettable memories with friends.

  • A surprising pick for me, this was the first Call of Duty I played because my friends wouldn't stop bothering me to get it. I never thought I would like Call of Duty but wow! I had a blast with MW3. The 1v1/2v2/3v3 maps + the kill streaks were very enjoyable.

  • The most recent game to be added to this list. I played 40+ hours of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and enjoyed it quite a bit. However, it started to get stale to me with the severe lack of options. Luckily, Mordhau doesn't suffer the same flaw and in my opinion, has surpassed Chivalry in every way.

  • I'm a huge fan of Resident Evil and even though 5 isn't quite the Resident Evil I'm fond of, it had an excellent co-op campaign. I've replayed this game over half a dozen times with several friends of mine because I enjoy the co-op aspect of it so much.

  • Not only was Halo 2's co-op campaign amazing, but the online multiplayer had a huge influence on future online shooters. Few FPS games can manage to have an engaging co-op campaign and an amazing online experience like Halo 2.

  • One of the first games I completed, played it with my brother countless times when I was child.
