Classic LAN parties can be tough, because many games no longer offer the option. You can all get in a room together.....but, you will likely be otherwise playing online. That said, there are still some games which support it.Hello All,
In High school, I use to go to and host LAN Parties.
Do these things happen any more for those on this forum?
If you aren't really playing any fighters, but want to: find out about your local FGC groups and which games are popular locally. And then pick one of those games.Its true. Long gone are the days where we all had to drag our full towers and CRT monitors across town to get a decent ping =).
Believe it or not, this is the first time I have heard of a FGC. I will have to look into that.
It use to be for the low latency and network performance, now you can get that where ever you are as long as you have broad band. However, you can never replace gaming in the same room as other people and the fun that is had with that. =)A couple friends and I will get together sometimes and bring setups but we just end up playing online together in the same room. Its fun to drink and eat and talk shit together though
You can get 1-2ms latency on a LAN. Show me a game where you can get that kind of latency over the internet. 100-150ms lag is somehow considered "good" these days.It use to be for the low latency and network performance, now you can get that where ever you are as long as you have broad band.

Hahhaha, I laughed at this.I had the most awful case that had a handle built-in just for carrying around, peppered with surf/watersports/auto stickers. It is probably the computer equivalent to having a mullet haircut in the 90's. Caught a lot of grief over that case, but it had a handle for easy carrying!
... good times...
