Greatest Multiplayer Games of All Time

Video games come in a wide variety of styles. Some are single players, some are multiplayer, and others have elements of both. One of the things that draw in many gamers is the multiplayer aspect of games.

Modern Warfare 3?

Are you having a laugh?

Why is CoD4 not in it's place?

Yu Yu Hakusho Makyoutohissen for the Mega Drive comes to mind

The author is clearly doing a bit of Activision butt kissing in the hopes of being given some schwag or early review consideration in the future.

There is no chance in hell MW3 belongs anywhere within a mile of an "all time" list. Sorry. People can have their opinions, but this is pushing the bounds of reason.

i know i am going to get spammed for this comment but i like MW3 over MW (COD4).

Kran2334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

Why do you like MW3?

Because it's CoD4+MW2? Thats bad! CoD4 will always be the best CoD multiplayer

Ezio20482334d ago

buddy i dont offend you but...i just love the fast paced gameplay in MW3 and especially the new perks and killstreaks. Also, there aren't as much camping spots as prevalent in MW2. I know that MW3 is by NO means perfect multiplayer game, but i enjoy playing it everyday on PSN.

"i just love the fast paced gameplay in MW3"

As opposed to what? The slow paced gameplay in CoD4? Have you played much CoD4? It's fast.

"there aren't as much camping spots as prevalent in MW2."

Are you joking? MW3 is the campiest of them all. So many nooks and crannies to hide behind in these poorly designed maps. All I see is fools camping with their Type 95's waiting for someone to walk buy. It's garbage. MW3's maps are nothing but over blown boxes with corners everywhere. Atleast in the past CoD's the maps had flow to them.

Agreed with above, I got a chance to play MW3 this weekend, borrowed a copy, and I’m quite dissapointed to say the least. It really is like a reskined MW2, the menus are the same, the emblems/titles are almost the same and/or made more horrible than in MW2. Played campaign(veteran), it’s ok, but the enemies are still dumb aimboting POS. Spec-ops also seemed like a letdown, didn’t have the chance to go trough all of them, but they were basically run’n’shoot, that’s it, in MW2 you had to man turrets on choppers, AC-130 (that was included, but still lacked), etc., those missions had great diversity, but not in MW3. Survival wasn’t bad, split-screen coop great, split-screen MP is a great bonus. MP overall is 1:1 like MW2, just made even more noob friendly, since now you can earn killstreaks (i.e. pointstreaks) even if you die. And the maps were ‘effin horrid, they all seemed like a freakin’ chessboard, kill one guy in front of you and you are bound to get shot in the back or side of your head a second later. I have to constantly rotate 360, omg.


OT - CS 1.6, TF2(PC), COD4(PS3) for me.

I feel with the new modes, including everything in spec ops, and the new killstreak chains MW3 multi is the best in the series. The maps are solid and the gun choices aren't as bad as previous installments.

But if MW3 made the list I think Halo Reach should have made it, that multi was pretty great.

I agree, MW3 is fun and more balanced than any other COD game.

torchic2333d ago

yes. it is indeed Opposite Day. I mean it's not Opposite Day. I mean...

Shackdaddy8362334d ago

That's fine if you like it but to me, it's probably one of the worst out of the series.

Part of it is due to the extremely bad maps. I actually miss maps from MW2 like quarry. The maps in MW3 are just so extremely small and just have so many camping spots.

Pikajew2334d ago

Mario Kart 64 is a great multiplayer game

dendenmooshi2334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

The original Halo and Goldeneye would also come before MW3. WoW also would come before MW3.

I'm glad they included counter strike though. Hate that they're referring to the xbox one that was released in 2004 and not the original PC one.

frostypants2333d ago

Gotta add Quake 2 as well. And BF1942.

There are a LOT of games that come before MW3.

PRHB HYBRiiD2334d ago

My personal list
Halo 2
Golden eye 007 (n64)
battlefield 3
Call of duty 4 and world at war
assasins creed brotherhood
Test drive unlimited
uncharted 3
Red dead redemption
little big planet

Shackdaddy8362334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

you should add counter strike
oh and time splitters

PRHB HYBRiiD2334d ago

i forgot about those :) they are also very good

clearelite2334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

Counter Strike, etc.

@below, agree and a bubble for the straw hat avatar.

Edit: At least he included CS and TF2, but that doesn't make up for including MW3 and not including the (IMO) much better Battlefield games.

also, he lost me when referring to COD, "..this game has already broken records..with top notch graphics.."

decent list though I guess.
