Online Multiplayer Games

Postby TomBobBlender » Sat Aug 14, 2010 12:22 pm

I love playing video games, but I enjoying them much more when I am playing them with others. That being said, please post responses to this post of ANY GAME you can think of that has multiplayer that you think I should consider. Go ahead and list games I already have, for the sake of anybody new here that is unfamiliar with my collection. It would help if you could describe the game a little bit, what system(s) they are for, and how many players can play simultaneously.

I think I heard that you said you had Pokemon Battle Revolution but I don' believe i've ever seen you play it. It could be a good way to stream pokemon battles. Though of course it would alwas be Tom Vs. 1 other person.

You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Killing Floor (PC).
Players: Typical team is 6, but custom servers can allow more.

It's a Unreal Tournament 2004 mod that eventually became it's own standalone game. Basically it's an FPS that sends waves of zombies (different classes) at your team, ending with a final boss after the waves. It is a little repetitive, but there are many maps (both built-in and user-submitted), 7 classes to choose from, and most importantly I own it on Steam (and would love to play a game w/ Tom). It would be good to play on one night or so (maybe Dead End during Shocktober?)
Currently playing--Borderlands 2 (PC)
Persona 3: FES (on my PS3)
NCAA Football 13 (PS3 - run a ACC/SEC dynasty)
Walking Dead (PC)

Includes 2 player co-op campaign, up to 4 player co-op challenges, and up to 8 players in the multiplayer Combat Simulator.

And for whatever reason they haven't been posted here:
