The List

Picture Title Genre Year Released Description
Homm3boxart.jpg Heroes of Might and Magic III TBS 1999 For extensive sessions. Scenarios can and will take hours, which just makes winning more rewarding. The game has aged pretty well.

Warcraft III RTS
Teamfortress2.jpg Team Fortress 2 FPS 2007 Not too hard to pick up, but has lots of tactical depth. The team-based gameplay is involving to everyone around.
WormsArmageddonCoverArt.jpg Worms Armageddon Artillery Game 1999 A bunch of worms and a wide arsenal of weapons equals guaranteed fun. The amusing blunders will teach you schadenfreude but also not to laugh too soon.
System-shock-2-box-art-1-.jpg System Shock 2 FPS/RPG 1999 Remember how fucking scary the singleplayer was? Well, multiplayer is a bit different this time. Now each player can specialize in one particular sector, and you help each other out. Great fun.
