i think if its a small player game like cod 4 or CS the you need to hear the sounds of foot steps. but if it is a big ggame like DOTA or BF2 then some drum and bass is good.

Your description of a LAN party just put me off my lunch! :-) Had visions of sweaty geeks hunched over in the chairs hehehe

Interesting how these things have evolved ... I used to go to computer parties back in ye olde Commodore 64 days in Holland, was more a place to show of electronics and coding voodoo (oh and swap games) than actually play the games.

it was early days for gamers back then, unfortunatly you cant play paperboy multiplayer.

i love a good solid allnighter where by the end of it you feel motion sick and drained after the midnight pizza run.

"what was your first lan game?"

Mine was probably when every one came over and we had turns at Lode runer on the commador 64
or ghostbusters or rambo: First blood

Bah multiplayer on the same system isn't exactly LANning is it? ;)

First was Doom (serial or modem at first then coax IPX network IIRC). Then Duke 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Descent...

Good times, nothing like troubleshooting a coax network on Win 3.11 machines...  Actually it was horrible.  Don't miss that bit at all :)

commadore 64
or ghostbusters


Hot dang I cut my teeth on the C64... and held on to it for dear life until consoles took over.

Still got it in a box somewhere, planning on tidying it up and seeing if it's still operational.

An hour ?!  You must have had one of those turbo loaders! ;-)

I loved the way the Commodore floppy drive was almost slower than the tape drive! hehehe
