So my buddy is coming over Friday for a night of gaming and drinking. Normally, we're all over EA sports games (mostly Madden, NCAA, TW2004 and MVP). But I think we're in the mood for something else.

We're both 28 and have been gaming for our whole lives. Other than sports games we enjoy RPGs, RTSs, adventure, basically anything. I suppose FPSs least of all.

We're looking for a game (or two) that will keep us entertained for 10 hours or so of gaming. 2 player versus is fine - 2 player co-op will be better.

I have some ideas, but would like to hear yours. System doesn't matter, I have every major system ever made (except for Dreamcast). So let the suggestions roll. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated - suggestions with reasons would be even better.

Thanks in advance.

I know you're in the mood for a change, but you would be remiss to not consider Fight Night 2004, the best boxing game ever.

I don't know if you've tried it, but there's nothing like a little Mario Kart: Double Dash!! for co-op play. I'm 26, and this one kept me and my buddies entertained for a lot more than 10 hours.

I don't know how old school you are looking to go, but last semester me and two of my buddies had a blast getting wasted and playing Secret of Mana (SNES) on boring weeknights.

I believe the newer Guantlet (Legends, it is?) game is co-op too, and that was alot of fun if you like that sort of thing.

Thinking about all this really makes me hope the new SD game for PS2 will have a co-op system in Season Mode. That would be killer

Halo, Halo...always Halo.
How about Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour (if you're comfortable with your masculinity)?
Actually, my friends and I had some fun recently with the X-Box version of Freestyle Street Soccer.
And lastly, there's always the standby of Smackdown: HCTP.

My sister and I REALLY enjoy playing Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven. It has a co-op mode where you have to team up to steal six scrolls scattered through out the land. Then, the competitive mode is somewhat like a FPS, were you go around and try to kill each other. But since I HATE FPS as well, I can say that it's not in first person, and you only go in first person if you shoot something.

Other than that, I'd recommend Super Smash Brothers.

If you want something different, Time Crisis with 2 guns is an AWESOME time to be had by all. For the PS1 they had another guncon game. I can't remember the names (they made two) but they had different shooting ranges and fun party games. If you can find it, I recommend it.

I'd be remiss if I didn't chime in for either of the Baldur's Gate games (or their bastard cousin, Champions of Norrath.)

Nice hack n' slash action, and believe me when I tell you that you'll wind up playing for hours and barely notice it.

I'll second the Halo suggestion. Co-op mode is fun, and my buddy and I lost 10 hours of our lives (and a 30 pack) to that game.

Getting drunk and playing games seems to be a popular activity nowadays. Games we've played lately are listed below.

For the NES:
NARC - Good fun had by all, and what beats blowing up a clown with a rocket launcher? (nothing)
Double Dragon 2 or 3: Beat em up, 2 player mode is very fun. A few frustrating jumping puzzles in part 2, but it's superior to part 3.


Genesis:
Streets of Rage (any version, we played part 2) - Fun beat em up.
Sgt. Chaos - Two teams of 4 (or was it 5) troops in a level try to repeatedly kill each other. Extraordinarily fun, and I don't remember it being overly popular. Highly recommended.


N64:
Perfect Dark (co-op death matches vs. bots) - Goldeneye engine, pretty smart bots (if you ramp up the difficulty), great level design.

Saturn Bomberman for the Sega Saturn is probably my choice for best multiplayer game ever. Both are probably hard to find these days, though.

The latest Bond game has a decent co-op mode. Ditto for the aformentioned Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven. Of course, you can't beat either Soul Calibur game if you get tired of playing nice.

Chu-chu rocket has a fun co-op mode that kept me and my buddies busy for hours, and laughing the whole time. And should you beat co-op, there is always versus mode- you vs. your friend or you and your buddy vs. the computer. You are putting space mice in rockets, how can you lose!?

Crap...ya beat me to it. Honorable mention to Contra for best 2-player co-op.

Still, nothing can touch "Ready...down...huthuthuthuthuthuthuthuthut..."

I just picked up a copy of WarioWare Inc. for the GameCube, and whenever we have any group of people around, we all play it. It's just like WarioWare for the GBA, only done 'party style'. Imagine Mario Party on crack.

Co-op mode for Donkey Kong Country 2 for the SNES is a lot of fun, along with pretty much any Street Fighter game.

... The two player games I wear out are Super Monkey Ball for the Gamecube and Cel Damage for the Xbox. Not sure why, but those are the ones that stuck with my circle of friends the most. They're both easy to pick up and play, they are involving and competitive, and they offer a chance to choose a certain character that suits an individual style of play.

... Ahh, yes. Only thing; we have to outlaw the "dive past the line of scrimmage and instantly sack the QB" move. There was another game -- Mutant League Football for the Genesis. Played like an extreme version of Madden; a lot of killing going on. In fact, we'd have to tone down the roughness setting, otherwise every game would end in a forfeit due to too many players dying. What fun.

I'll give you a HELL YEAH (hell yeah!) for playing co-op Perfect Dark. My sister and I used to play 5-on-5 co-op with three bot teammates and five bot opponents for hours on end. My favorite weapons include the SuperDragon, the Laptop Gun in sentry mode (perfect for when you and your teammate are staking out a certain spot, or for defending while playing Capture the Case), and the good ol' trusty CMP150 (or as I like to call it, the “sim-piz-mo”).

Of course, if you're in the mood for a good competitive game, Perfect Dark fits the bill on that one, too. Nothing quite like watching your little sister blow up your littler (male) cousin and hearing her say, “Death becomes him.” In fact, between my sister, my cousin, and me, we talked so much shit (mostly while playing GoldenEye) that I was surprised we didn't literally run out of original material. But my sister's the best shit-talker in the world when it comes to video games, so needless to say I was always entertained.

What's great about Perfect Dark is the crazy amount of customization you can do. Try these games...

Resident Evil-You and a teammate versus 8 Dark Level Turtle bots (1/2 speed, double shield) Weapons (Knife, Shotgun, Pistol (forget which one), crossbow, Magnum, shield). You will NEVER flat out win this game...the real game is to see who has the best kill/death ratio at the end.

Matrix-Forget the name of the level, but the one that looks just like the lobby from the matrix. Matrix weapons only (pistol, shotgun, CMP150). Selective slo-mo (turns on only when near an enemy).

Pacifist Tag-Tag with 3 teams. One is yourself, one a friend, one is 4 perfect (or dark) level pacifist bots. The perfect bots will never kill you, but they will try their hardest to take your weapons and make you as dizzy as possible.
