Well I never really posted in the original video game board, but I need help with something.

I'm the Vice President on my college's Computer Science Club, and we are thinking of holding a Video Game Tournament on Open College night in March. Right now, the feeling is that we should use the game Counter Strike (which I beleive is a mini game in Half Life) for the tournament, but I feel we should be open to the idea of some other games.

Anyways, I've kind of been out of the video game seen since 2000. That means I don't know any of the newest and latest games out there. Therefore, I am asking everyone here if they know any good games to play that would be perfect for a Video Game Tournament (and by perfect, I mean a game that is both fun and mores at a reletivly quick pace).

<font color="#99CCFF">Well, I'm assuming you'll be using pc's over lan, so counter strike is a good one off the bat.
Deathmatch classic (another mod for half-life) is a bit more arcadey, plays kinda like quake, and is fast and frantic with a lot of players.
And now my mind has blanked on pc multiplayer games.</font>

If you're looking for first person shooters then Counter-Strike, Red Faction (1 or 2), Unreal Tournament, Tribes 2, Halo, Call of Duty, or Battlefield 1942. Those are all great games.

Worms World Party. That's our favorite LAN game at school.

And I almost forgot Armagettron, which you can get for free on the web. The game RULES in a LAN party.

OMG I played that game all last year in my Electronic publishing class. 6 teams on LAN. Lots of chaos. That is SUCH a good game.
