So, my best friend and I don't get together as often as we'd like anymore, but when we do, we like to go back to the old days. We enjoy sitting around the TV, slowly getting drunk on Old Style, playing video games and wasting the day/night away. For us, it doesn't get much better than that.

However, I need your help in recommending some games for us to play this weekend. Because we haven't gotten together much recently, we've both been focusing a lot on single player games and neither one of us have a good idea of what is out there for multiplayer.

We like just about anything, whether it be co-op or against one another. Sometimes we can even get into working through a one player game (one guy playing the other watching and keeping track of stuff - then switching off) but only if the game is really good - I think we did this with the first Resident Evil and Final Fantasy X. Here are some games we've had no problem wasting a day or two playing to give you an idea (starting from WAY back in the day). You'll see that we dip into just about any genre.

All Mario Karts (Super, 64, DD)
GoldenEye 64
All Maddens (1993-2005)
All NCAA Footballs (1999-2005)
ATV Off Road Fury Series
Dynasty Warriors Series
NFL Street
NFL Blitz
Super Monkey Ball Series
Super Smash Bros Melee
Halo 1 & 2
MVP Baseball Series
So let me have some of you best recommendations on a few games we can try this weekend.

Thanks in advance!

Burnout 3: Takedown
-best racing game I have ever played; very arcade-style, but with realistic physics and lots of different play modes.

Oddly enough, my friends and I have had more fun (trying) to play GTA:SA in a group. We take turns, switching off after a mission complete/fail, busted, or wasted.

Just watching someone trying to navigate the highways after three shots is funny on it's own.

Been there, certainly. Good times.

Thannks guys. Other receommedations I've found have been:

Star Wars: Battlefront
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
Alien Hominid
FF: Crystal Chronicles
Timesplitters 2
X-Men Legends

In case anyone else does this kind of stupidity.

Tecmo Super Bowl on either the NES or SNES/Sega...each of you gets a team, you can finish the season in a long day/night. Then you compile the stats, put them in Excel, and do all kinds of fun and exciting studying of numbers!!

This household can not in good faith recommend FF: Crystal Chronicles. The co-op mode is exceptionally frustrating.

Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, Super Smash Bros. and Soul Calibur II are all pretty fun.

If you have a GBA w/ cable, Pac-Man Vs. is awesome. The more the merrier in that game.

I found Time Splitters 2 for dirt cheap recently. Is it any good? Or does it only hold value as a multiplayer?

I liked the single player mode. And the music on the western/mine stage might be my favorite video game music ever.
