Yeah i know what you mean.I know its wrong( so no need for a smart arse answer rodimusprime) but multiplayer in my head is 4 player bomberman or something like that.
Yep, same. Exactly why all the games I listed support more than 2 players. If it had been what are the best 2-player games then my list would have been completely different.

For all you pedants wanting a discussion about nothing : "A multiplayer video game is a video game in which more than one person can play in the same game environment at the same time."

Its from WIKIPEDIA, so it MUST be true :wink: 8) :?

One of the definitions of "Multi" is "more than one" so two player games are fine.

What with all that food and cider, I think, just once, the Gauntlet II machine could have come out with "BLUE WIZARD NEEDS THE TOILET".
"BADLY."

Quake 3 Arena. My first ever online game thanks to Dreamcast online. This introduced me to the beauty of online FPS games.

Call Of Duty. For some reason I was just amazing at this game. Played this on my PC and at the gaming cafe in town and for some reason I just "got it" right from the start and spent countless hours on this.

3 games immediately spring to mind when it comes to amazing multiplayer experiences:

Saturn Bomberman (Sega Saturn)
Powerstone 2 (Dreamcast)
Daytona USA (Arcade)

Honorable mentions must go to Goldeneye, Pro Evo & the Mario Kart Games.

Some that weren't mentioned yet:

- Sonic 3's "competition mode". Super fun with another player but setting records on it's own is fun too. Gives idea for a fan-made hack with more tracks.

- Outlaw. Classic retro MP fun, enough said.

- Battle Tank. This famicom classic is a blast with two players. The level generator is a nice touch too.

- Tennis. Game Boy's ultimate tennis game. With a GB link cable it's a blast. The NES version is nice too, as is Super Tennis for SNES.

- Baseball for NES. It's actually a bit crappy, but it was still fun with another player.

- M.U.S.C.L.E. This was really fun with two or more players. Simplistic fantasy wrestling fun.

- River City Ransom. Can't get much better than this for NES/FC scrolling beat em ups. Only issue is the notable slowdowns.

- Battletoads. The NES version is just a blast. The Arcade version is fun too.

- Lost Vikings. Great puzzle-style platformer. Shines with more players.

I'm sure I could come up with more but let that be enough for now.

Good one :D
Pro Wrestling on the Master System is essentially the same game, lots of fun there.
