The best at bringing gamers together.
Great list. If the list were to be expanded to 15 I'd add: Killzone 2 Halo 3 Goldeneye 007 Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Battlefield 2 had better multiplayer than BC2. That's why so many people still play it years later.
Bad Company 2 plays way better than BF2. The only three things that I would say BF2 has over BC2 are bigger maps, 64 players and Jets, otherwise BC2 is an improvement in every way. BF3 is going to blend BC2 and BF2, and so it should be the best of both worlds.
I have to say that Rainbow 6 Vegas was the best MP for a shooter I have ever played. Being in control of your own lobby, dedicated servers, the teamwork involved, man I spent hundreds of hours playing that game. Demon's Souls I feel is the most innovative. I really look forward to Dark Souls to see if they made it even better. Man, I hope I can invite friends into my room.
I would have to say Splinter Cell: DA was one of the best times I've ever had online. Demon's souls, R6V, COD4, 007, battlefield, Midnight Club 3:dub edition, socom,Ghost Recon: Advanced WarFighter 2, and warhawk. probably my top favorite multiplayer games ohh and twisted metal. that was always fun
I think they were thinking more along the lines of competitive multiplayer. Demon's souls is pretty much mostly single player and co-op with the odd bit of PvP. But it is still a fantastic game. My choice for number 1 would be CoD4. I miss the simplicity of that game.
I think it could have been one of the best if it was easier to get into a game. I'm guessing most of the disagree's are from people who haven't played the game.
I agree, I was just gonna put this myself until you said it. I don't think competitive or co-op matters. Demon's Souls is a multiplayer game, and it does it so perfectly. All the people disagreeing have most likely never touched the game, or it's multiplayer aspect.
CoD2 (on 360) was my first multiplayer game and I had an absolute blast playing it. I'd also like to add Gears of War 1 to the list, as that was one of the most addictive games I have ever played.
Call of Duty 2 was a quality game.
Seriously....Where's Madden? I'm No Madden fan but come on the game brings people together to play!
Killzone 2? BBC2? Really?
Yes Killzone 2 is a damn good multiplayer game.
Killzone 2 is actually very average.
. Killzone 2 actually has a very good multiplayer, but of course people like yourself who didn't give the game a chance would think otherwise.
i was just playing counter strike like 5 minutes ago
Not a single Halo game? Really?
I agree. Halo 3 should probably be on that list. I personally dont like halo, but i know alot of people that did.
I'd add the Multiplayer for Conker's Bad Fur Day for N64. Beach mode was priceless... that, and the dinosaurs vs. cavermans. And seriously, no Bomberman? No matter the version, it's fun to the max. And Wario Ware for Gamecube.
OMG dinosaurs vs. caveman was probably one of the FUNNEST things I have ever played. It completely ruled my childhood.
Another disappointing list, where's Halo, Socom, Battlefield 2, Killzone 2, Goldeneye, Guilty Gear, King Of Fighters...... Please no more BEST EVAAAR!! lists for single or multiplayer titles.....
Battlefield on PC Killzone 2 on consoles
Warhawk! Where's Warhawk!?!
Killzone3 Uncharted2 Halo3
Killzone 2 and uncharted 2 MP are both terrible.
Uncharted mp and co op was super awesome. But killzone 2 wasn't anything special
KZ2 MP > UC2 and KZ3 MP Not to say that UC2 MP was bad. It was good, but KZ2's mp was better. KZ3's MP on the other hand was... wait for it... trash.
This list is a fail. Quake 3, Time Splitters and Super Smash Bros? Are you serious?? - Socom 2 - Left 4 Dead 1+2 - Rainbow Six Vegas 1+2 - Bad Company 2 - Uncharted 2 - Call of Duty: World at War(Zombies and Campaign Co-op)
Geez, forgot about R6: Vegas and the previously mentioned Warhawk. I devoted an insane amount of time in Rainbow 6 and I still do today.
Are you saying it shouldn't have Quake 3, you know, the most popular competitive (as in eSports) title ever? Right...
- Socom 2 - Another military FPS *sigh* - Left 4 Dead 1+2 - Not the best, pretty dull after a while - Rainbow Six Vegas 1+2 - Another military FPS *sigh* - Bad Company 2 - Decent - Uncharted 2 - Awful - Call of Duty: World at War(Zombies and Campaign Co-op) - How can you even mention a Call of duty.
I agree with Socom, but Super Smash Bros is probably the greatest MP game ever. I have spent so much time on that.
MAG? LBP? Monster hunter for psp?
You believe that LBP should be on the "best multiplayer ever" list? That's fine. I, however, do not believe that game is anywhere near close to "the..best ever". To each his own though.
Well I had loads of fun messing around with mates, fun is what makes multiplayer
I agree with Monster Hunter, Freedom Unite was my favourite PSP game, and the 4 player co-op was incredible.
I think MAG should definitely be on a list of best online mp FPSs, but this list has all genres combined, so it'd be hard to argue that it should be on there. But for me, personally, it's the best experience I ever had playing online. And anyone who hasn't played MAG for at least 50 hours, doesn't even have the right to comment on my opinion. People who played MAG easily got hooked for hundreds of hours, so the game did something right for sure!
You're right about that. Didn't mean any disrespect friend.
RFOM UT3 RBSV1/2 BC2 WARHAWK
How is this news? It's a good opinion piece; however...
This list sucks!!!!
Halo 3 and reach should be on their. And GTA or RDR
Halo 3 should be on their but not reach. Don't know why but halo held me for years but reach I hardly played at all. Bad Company 2 however should be on their.
super mario kart was great. i also keep going back to gta4 online.
i dont care about these lists there just opinions im sick of the top 10 this the bottom 5 this i want news not a gamers opinion list
Resistance: FOM, Warhawk, Halo 3 and Reach, Socom 2, Super Smash Bros. Melee > 64, Twisted Metal 2
Games that i spent the most amount of time playing online 1. Runescape (When i was a kid) 2. Battlefield 1943 3. Call of Duty 4 4. Rainbow Six vegas 5. Halo 3 6. Gears of war 2
Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
i like some of this list I'd go with these 11; Starcraft 2 number 1 for sure WoW Battlefield 2 Demons souls (gets points for uniqueness) Halo 2 Diablo 2 Call of duty 4 Warcraft 3 half life 2 deathmatch (crazy mods) Company of heroes dawn of war 2
Not a mention of Unreal Tournament something wrong here
Fricken woot for Timesplitters! Tiberian Sun had kick ass multiplayer. Anyone play the Pink Moon map? And the one with viceroids EVERYWHERE so you gotta build up walls real quick. classic.
Not a bad list at all. Conspicuous lack of Halo CE, Goldeneye and Unreal Tournament, but still, not bad. The majority of the games that are on the list definitely should be there, and that's a good thing. I would have said 'inb4 'awful list, why isn't [insert blockbuster game from last 5 years with a somewhat OK multiplayer] in, I mean, Quake? I've never even heard of it', but I got here a bit late. If I was to do the list, top 15, I'd say this, roughly in order: Quake 3 Starcraft Counter-Strike Team Fortress 2 Unreal Tournament Street Fighter Goldeneye 64 Halo 2 World of Warcraft Call of Duty 4 Battlefield 2 Rainbow Six Vegas Super Smash Bro's Melee Twisted Metal 2 Defense of the Ancients
Warhawk should be on the top of the list.
I'd added the following 2 Marathon - 8 player death match's on custom maps ;) Planetside - 1st game to truly have a massive multilayer FPS experience,
Socom 2, Starfox 64, Doom back when it was on AoL dial-up, Ninja Turtles arcade
Ah, Timesplitters. Good times.
Pes 6 Online Fifa 09 MW2 Halo 3 Fifa 2010 world cup Uncharted 2 in no order plz don't slate my opinion i started online gaming in 06
Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare Resistance Fall of Man Super Smash Bros 64, Melee, Brawl Halo 2 Timesplitters 2 Uncharted 2 Unreal Tournament series Mario Kart 64 007 Goldeneye Diablo 2
My list in order: Quake 3 Half Life series Team Fortress 2 Battlefield Bad Company 2 Counter Strike Unreal Tournament series The list was pretty darn good, except the mention of Call of Duty 4.
No Diablo 2? What the hell?
I still play Call of Duty 4 to this day. Too bad Infinity Ward no longer maintains the servers and there are soooo many Modders / hackers on COD 4 that they ruin a game when there are more than a couple in the same game. BTW anyone who says that Uncharted 2 has bad multiplayer has obviously NEVER played that game online. Uncharted 2 has very fun and fluid multiplayer gameplay online.
My list: Quake 3 (ofc- check the pic :D ) Goldeneye Counterstrike Battlefield 2 Power Stone Vigilante 8 (1 and Second Offence) Mortal Kombat That's it folks. You can stop debating. Septic has spoken.
Left4 dead vs mode is probably one of the best Vs mode ever created it should of been there, goldeneye n64 perfect dark n64 A Halo should of been there, how many time is halo the number 1 online game next to COD?
"goldeneye n64 perfect dark n64" h3ll yes. can't argue with you over Halo, either - even though I'm not really a fan myself.
So glad I'm allowed to disagree with that list.
I'd just like to point out that Borderlands wasn't mentioned in the article or in the 67 comments before mine. For shame.
and what about MK? I can't be the only one to have sunk hrs and hrs into perfecting special moves, combos, fatalities...
