    Mine would have to be Halo 2. We used to get a bunch of us together and system link with a few beers. It was friggin sweet. Honourable mention would definitely be the original Gears of War and Smash Bros Melee on GameCube.

    Oh and GTA liberty city stories. We used to play that in school when it came out. There was a gametype where each team had to capture the others limo. That was awesome too.

    Smash Bros is always good for a laugh. Easy enough to pick up and play that even people who aren't great at fighting games can play. Played quite a few hours of multiplayer over the years...

    Mario Kart is another one. Spent tons of time playing various iterations over the years, with probably 64 and MK Wii being the ones I've played the most. Great stuff. The Switch version of 8 is also immensely fun.

    Micro Machines 2 was also great fun with the 8 player party share. Again, many hours wasted on that mode.

    Online wise I've grown tired with most games these days, just lost the motivation to play online especially any competitive modes. But I do still really love Destiny (now Destiny 2) which I'll probably sink tons of hours into. Only other recent games I put tons of time into were probably Super Street Fighter IV and maybe Marvel Vs Capcom 3.

    How could I forget Mario Kart! I don't bother much with online games now either. I feel they take too much effort to play and I usually just feel like chilling out while gaming. I used to play CS:GO a lot and even bought a 144hz monitor to give me that competitive edge but I just burned myself out on it. I played a ton of Call of Duty back in the day but now I think I'd rather get shot in the face in real life before I'd give Activision any more money.

    Goldeneye 007 for the N64 was so addicting to play with friends. Even though we can see what's going on in the other players' screens it was still exciting and planting those proximity mines never got old.

    I don't like sports games but I had fun playing Virtua Tennis for the Dreamcast with friends, espescially the 2 on 2 matches.

    Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake. Back in 2010, I played this every school day with 6 of my classmates during class while review for the board exam was going on lol.

    Got really addicted to Killzone Mercenary's online multiplayer back when the game came out. I was amazed that there was a finally a console quality online multiplayer FPS that you can play on a portable console.

    Bah, I forgot Goldeneye. That and Duke Nukem 64 were big multiplayer games back in the day. Brilliant stuff. Proximity mines in the Library on Goldeneye! So good...

    Co-op wise I do remember enjoying Halo 1-3 with my brother, however while I still enjoyed 4-5 they just don't hold a candle to the original games (especially 1 and 3).

    The only multiplayer game I've played with a friend was Match Day on the ZX Spectrum back in 1985. :eek:

    I had a very quick dabble with Mario Kart online & Animal Crossing, but that's it. None of my friends over the years have been gamers, so it's singleplayer all the way.

    In the early years Micro Machines (MD), Gloom on my mates A1200, Gauntlet on the speccy. Then the original GTA/Big red racing/Doom/D3D in dos. After that all the way through college and most of uni or so was hardcore Half-life Adrenalin Gamer mod. I've spent more time playing that single mod more than all games combined (til 6am then college!). A few £500 phone bills on my 56k over Wireplay. Anyone else ever use Wireplay? Fantastic service back then. Could manage a 112 ping on an empty svr.

    Hmmm the top games for me would be White Knight Chronicles 2, X-Men Arcade, and Resident Evil 5. I played those games a ton back on the PS3 with friends. Good times!

    For me it would be Kirby's Superstar when my best friend and I rented it for the first time. In my eyes it was the perfect sequel to Kirby's Adventure, and the quality and polish that this game had was just beyond imagination. My feelings are a little hurt each time a new Kirby platform game comes out that doesn't have co-op.

    I actually played PlayStation Allstars online my Vita recently. It was fun despite being an amateur on my part. The game is 5-6 years old but it's still fun. I had for a few years n haven't touched til this year.

    In my last year at high school I brought in a cracked copy of Unreal Tournament and installed it on the school system. We had maybe a dozen people playing at any time from different rooms in the school. That was awesome. I got busted though, and in retaliation spread hard-core porn vids through the school system instead until somebody squealed on me and I got suspended and nearly expelled. That was fun.

    A lot of us had out own laptops at this time too so I brought in a cracked copy of Call of Duty and a bunch of us played that then instead. All good memories.

    best multiplayer gaming for me was playing Quake III on a LAN in an office of 12 guys, working Tech support for Eidos Interactive (1990's)

    We used to scream and shout abuse at each other across the office whilst peeps were trying to deal with customers on the phone, great fun!

    We also used to play multiplayer Tekken 3 and Tony Hawks Pro Skater on the PS1.

    online multiplayer would have to be World Of Warcraft...... I wasted 7 years of my life on that game

    Pfff... that's probably playing Call of Duty 3 on a friend's bedroom with 4 players on a tiny fucking TV. Each of our separate screens were about the seize of a DS/GBA SP screen. After a while you'd get used to it. It was incredible fun. Later going back to single player on a decently sized flatscreen was immense as well.

    But I've also had a lot of fun playing Smash Bros and Mario Kart on the Wii U. My favourite experience there must be with my brother in law, who thinks he's a very knowledgeable and skillful gamer, though really he just parrots whatever 'cool' mainstream-is-bad YouTube/blog guy says. He's been in the business of looking down on my wife in all sorts of ways about his whole life, but particularly when it came to gaming. At some point we played some rounds of Smash together. He first played with random characters 'to even the playing field because he was obviously going to be so much better' and got his bum kicked ruthlessly, by me, but mostly by my wife who kept coming up on top (side note of honesty: I was a little bitter as well, as I had played Smash solo, training a little, and she'd only ever played with me). So he was like "I'll show you how it's done!" and manically chose 'Bayonetta', known on the internet for being super OP. He admitted it wasn't really fair, but he had to show that he could win to us. So, he still got his asked kicked by his little sister. Something like, the bigger they are or think themselves to be, the harder they fall, right?

    Lately sometimes playing Smash or Kart with the new neighbours has been fun too though.
