Alright first things first, nice avvy. BMW is the best. Haha

Next, I would say Unreal Tournament games. They are very good for LAN as well as Quake games. The newest games of those two are Unreal Tournament 3, and Quake 4.

Lord of Destruction ftw! And Q3 still has it alll, even after all those years!

I stumbled over this page a few days ago: http://www.network-games-collection.com/
There's a tutorial on how to play the best game in history GTA San Andreas multiplayer. Does anyone have ever tested that?

Hey, I play loads of Lan games, my opinions are based on games that are-
Easily bought for cheap, easy to set up for LAN, easy to learn and of course, fun to play with only a few people or loads of people

FPS-
Quake 3- Can't go wrong here, fast paced FPS action with little thinking required
Vietcong- A choice often overlooked, but fun as hell when you get some good players on
Combat arms- Online only, but free to download and if your friends have epic internet; getting 6 players onto one server on the same team and slaughtering helpless newbies. Most fun I have ever had on a PC.
And the #1 FPS LAN game- Urban terror- Free to download, easy as anything to install and set-up, I had a friend who has never played FPS before jump on this game and have a great time with about 10 other players.

RTS-
Starcraft- Obvious reasons here :thumbsup:
Dawn of War- Best thing about this, if you have Dark Crusade expansion, you don't need the CD and it works for LAN with the same copy :D Excellent fun, Iv'e played this 2 days straight with a friend, never gets old
And the #1 RTS LAN game- Rise of Nations- Thrones and patriots- The version I have (One of those "THAT'S HOT" Ubisoft versions) is just liked DoW, no cd needed ;) I played this game for 6 hours straight on the same map, me and a mate never get tired of this game, no matter how many times we play it we don't get bored. Had a game with 6 players once, 4 vs 2, 4 new players VS 2 VET's, the game was surprisingly difficult for the VET's due to its easy to learn interface and style of gameplay

Anything else?
If your friends and yourself are loaded with cash and all have awesome net- Stop wasting time, buy Left4dead/Team Fortress/Counter Strike, best LAN/Online games ever, there will always be new content and there extremely team based (Exception on CS).

If you want any more suggestions or have questions, feel free to ask
If all else fails- Buy a pen and paper

I used to play San Andreas MP, ALOT. It is extremely fun, however it is also the glitchiest and laggiest game in the world if you are in an area with few decent servers. But, I have played it over a LAN setup and my god it was fun, about 13 players running around this big map all trying to crush each other with bulldozers. 5 hours well spent.

age of empires 3 is a great game which works really well on lan and if you downlode gameranger it has rooms which are lan connected so you can still play against people around the world.
