With tons of genres to choose from like racing games, shooters, fighters, sports, puzzle and mini games, your library of options can start an argument with your friends of what to play. What is your choice as the best multi-player party game?August 8, 2013 at 10:28 am #1495
There are certain multi-player video games that I connect to specific times in my life at which those games were the most fun. Trying to pinpoint the best of all of them would be maybe impossible, and I might be cheating in choosing two, but these are tops for parties.
In college it was Mario Tennis (on GameCube). It was probably the competitive group of 15 or so regular players and the fact that I wasn’t horrible that made it so awesome. More recently, I really enjoy Castle Crashers, which is more button mashing and casual as well as fitting for a group that enjoys their alcohol.August 8, 2013 at 11:35 am #1500
First, let me point out that the Gamecube was and still is the best system for this type of gaming. It just had a ton of releases for multi-player fun. Super Monkeyball was a nice surprise on that system with it’s variety of crazy mini-games.
Second, I’m going to suggest some of the genre’s we missed that are pretty much made for party gaming.
Dance games. I was a huge Dance Dance Revolution fan back back in the day day and I very much enjoy Dance Central and Just Dance this generation.
Trivia games. You Don’t Know Jack is the best for this, period.
Music/Rhythm games. People are really fond of Guitar Hero and Rock Band which are good for multi-player but we literally would not have those games with out the far superior Frequency. One of my favorite games on the PS2 and possibly of all time!August 8, 2013 at 4:37 pm #1501
No Fair. Got here late…How are Super Smash Brothers and Mario Kart not being mentioned? Man, the Gamecube was like the golden system for 4 player mayhem. However, let’s not forget the Burnout Crash Junctions. You could do and endless round robin competitions and have a unique score every time.
As far as more recent games go, I gotta say Little Big Planet is a fantastic party game. 4 players through the campaign is a blast, but those custom community levels are really where the fun is at.August 9, 2013 at 11:35 pm #1505
Any of the “Combat Car” based Games would work like Vigilante, or Twisted Metal, Blitz from Midway, would work just the silliness would keep people coming to play each quarter. Uh…Power Stone 2 would work but its so old you’d either have to have some serious bank or serious luck to have a Dreamcast AND the game.August 11, 2013 at 3:19 pm #1526
