Old School Multiplayer Games We Can't Get Enough Of

Call of Duty? Nah, let's take a break and get some of these games on. (Bomberman (WiiWare), Gauntlet, Goldeneye 007, Mario Kart 64, Mario Tennis, Retro, Super Smash Bros., Virtua Tennis 2009, Warlords)

Why does nothing from this generation multiplayer wise really feel like it will be truly missed? Over sequelization and feautre creep. The cost of high production values.

I already miss halo 3...then they cod'd it with reach and 4.
A7XEric  +   1132d ago
I don't really see it with Reach, but def Halo 4.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1132d ago
Halo 2 was my personal favorite,but Halo 3 was still. Great the companies become so obsessed with making money rather than keeping the core of what made series great

Thich,

I miss the fun antics arcadie, almost college buddy pick up and play feel it had. I guess a lot of that comes from my enjoyment in college. It was almost like a "party shooter" just fun.

Well said Thich...one game that I miss from this gen and wish they made another one is Lost Odyssey.

i just reply about this in a ni no kuni thread to guy who said he hasnt play a good JRPG since the ps2.

lost odyssey was so great loved the text stories and how they were set up with the sound and art. it worked so great.
the overall story was great also there´s still so much potential for a sequel. i would love it

The majority of my favorite multiplayer games are on the N64. That console was built with multiplayer as the focus, with 4 ports for controllers.

The Gamecube and wii were both great multiplayer consoles and so is now the wiiu.

It only take a go of Nintendo land , NSMBU or Rayman legends Demo to see this console is trying to keep local multiplayer alive and kicking...

I had a blast playing Rayman Legends at my local Gamestop with my Bros. Can't wait till it's time for me to get a Wii U!

Bomberman! Had that on the Snes. That was a classic multiplayer game
Venox2008  +   1132d ago
its amazing, I'm still mad at konami that there are no news (or maybe even cancel) or Bomberman 3DS

Here are some old MP games I enjoyed playing alongside mates:

• 007 NIGHTFIRE - a classic! This game had fantastic MP, I would love a HD remake.

• CONFLICT: Global Storm - acting like a fireteam with my friend where one person takes a buddy and the other does that too before departing down a different path was great fun! I personally loved the desert level with the Jeep.

• MOH (PS1) - OOoh yes, this game had funny personas and great gameplay; in my books, another worthy classic.

Still play mario kart and smash bros with some buddies from time to time, the n64 was the best system ever for local mp imo.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1132d ago
I personally prefer melee over brawl and the original smash bros.
cpayne93  +   1132d ago
Yeah melee is definitely the best one. Great amount of content and the best gameplay, possibly the singe greatest party game I've played.
EdoubleD  +   1132d ago
What about MGO, I definitely miss that.
BitbyDeath  +   1132d ago
Not very old school but Warhawk (PS3) is my favourite multiplayer game ever.
