Drew Leachman writes: Party games are fun in many aspects. The thrill of beating the snot out of your opponents while they sit next to you and rubbing it into their faces is always a fun joking time. Many games handle it so well too. Of course, back in the day, this was really the only option we had to play multiplayer games, and back then it was a staple. Now, with this new technology known as “the internet”, we can play with our friends down the street or a continent away. It has become very convenient. I give you this really lame history lesson to set up something – many people including myself, don’t really play games locally anymore.
