'Guys Nite' Game Suggestion
« on: February 23, 2006, 04:21:04 pm »
Ok, so tomorrow nite I have a bunch of friends coming over.  The 'center of the action' as it were is going to be gaming and fighting each other.  I'm looking for suggestions on some great games - either two player or easily 'competeable' - that we might otherwise overlook.

Quick/fun 2 player co-op games would be good too.

TIA. :)

Track and Field is a great game when the guys get together. Lots of trash talking and button mashing. I never realized how loud that game was outside of a full arcade. I think the slap slap slapping of buttons kept the neighbors up all night on a few occasions.

Other Games:
Contra
Silkworm
SF2
Super Puzzle Fighter

If you've got a trackball, you have to play Shuuz.  It's a great 4-player game and always a hit with the guys when they're over...

The Namco Collections are cool. 2 player Dig Dug and Pac Man is a riot.

Joust and Mario Bros (not Super)

These always get the 2-player action at my place.  You mostly play co-op, but you can dick each other, too.

Depending on people's taste.. my lad's like to play certain platform games with the continue feature.. hence taking turns and trying to complete the game...
ie:
Black Tiger
Ghost 'N' Goblins
Ring King (King of Boxing)

or see how far you can go on a single man...
ie:
Green Beret
Commando
Dig Dug
Joust

Heh.  For some reason I think DC police, and my apartment building, would frown upon us throwing around a football out front at night while consuming alcoholic beverages.

Anyway, added most of the games - at least the ones that my MAME PC can handle.  the things only a 1.2ghz cel-tual so, it's can't handle most of the newer 3d games...or any MK after MKI.   Its weird, I could have sworn KI and ANY chd played previously on it, but not anymore.  Maybe a MAME version related thing.

Well, my place is setup with controllers all over the damn place and a game list setup and tested.  Hopefully things will go well and I wont have to kill someone for spilling something on my controls :).

Good on ya Necro!... enjoy the night..
I have many fond memories with the boys over, watching loud video clips and indulging in arcade madness.

I also have hurtful ones... like when we were still trying to finish 'Wardner' @ 4am and I had finished a bottle of scotch!! (not to mention the lads crazy consumption efforts)  Not good when your are a beer drinker.  Thought I'd try something different!  Not the best the next day!!.... at all!! ;D  The word idiot comes to mind.

I think the police in DC have a little more to deal with than a couple guys throwing around a football with beer in hand.

So you're saying he lost, then?

Actually, it doesn't sound like English is his first language.  I'm hoping.

This is a late reply, so I hope the headache is gone by now.

I second the game called Shuuz, especially if you have a trackball. Totally fun, and it has built-in beer rounds.

If you have the trackball, Golden Tee rocks (as mentioned earlier).

Joust is another good one.

Our official game is Dig Dug...lots of crap flying around as to who is the best. But it's really a one player at a time game.

Gauntlet is also a good two-player game.
