Co-op video games

Which older (ebayable) games have local network co-op?

I’m pretty sure the Descent series has co-op LAN.

Off the top of my head, I know Diablo 2, Baldur’s Gate 2 and Battlefield 1942 can be played co-op on a LAN. If you want to play competitive as well you can add Unreal Tournament 1 & 2 and the various Quake versions.

Also, there’s always Diablo II.

Should’ve refreshed. :slight_smile:

If we’re widening the scope to competitive lan play, didn’t many (if not all) the doom engine games have lan play?

(Doom, Doom2, Heretic, Hexen)

System Shock 2 was a good one for co-op play. It has some RPG elements, allowing you to develop various skills and abilities. This keeps the co-op play interesting, as each character will have their own area of strength and utility.

We play the heck out of Doom II, but it won’t run on our XP machines.
Doomsday runs Doom on XP, but I can’t keep the network synched.

I wonder why that is. Works fine on my Athlon 1800+.

Are you running under the CMD prompt, or from Windows?


:smack: NM, I thought you said Diablo II.
