Anyone else still have LAN parties?

Aged 28-31 and still can't stop LANing, the dream. And yes, that is one of many sweet victory royales this weekend

a "LAN party" in 2018 is basically an oxymoron. The purpose of a low-latency LAN game is completely defeated by the fact that you'll be connecting to the game's servers to play the game. It'll be the same as if you were all in your respective homes playing the game with ~50-100ping.

The purpose of a LAN game is that I can shittalk you across the room after a headshot. It's a social thing, not a technical thing. The technical considerations are indeed mostly obsolete, but they always were secondary in the first place.

Everything is online nwow. We do go over to each others' houses though, just for pizza.

I still have LANs but it's mostly down to me and one other buddy. Always a good time. Can't forget the massive data transfer after gaming has concluded.

>>
>>65919401
Yes. I rumanage some events, LAN parties included, but I wouldn't have more than one LAN ever (though one and al half year ago, me and like 6 friends made one that was pretty good, but that was an exception).
Tha LAN parties I manage are for anyone, we even have 16 PCs with i5s but no dedicatedn an association and I graphics, but it's OK to play old games, there aren't much newer demanding games that have LAN option anyway (only A Way Out come to my mind). We run them in a local granted by the town hall so underage have to fuck off at 00:00.
The most I like about LAN parties at these years is that most people forgot about how to build a PC or what they can do with them, so I take some time to fix their PCs like installing proper libre software, or at least good imo, getting them to install uBlock Origin and such and getting rid of viruses and bloat.
I remember when I was a kid at 2003~6, I had 10yo and I already knew what those guys know about computers and such, I feel like a God now.

We gotta quit looking for scapegoats that remove responsibility from parents and what their children turn into. Boobs and low test are because of a lack of exercise and overeating.

>>65926210
BPA - cans, thermal paper receipts, flexible plastic (stuff marketed as 'BPA free usually contains BPS which is worse)
Phthalates - found in everything

we live in a hazardous food environment that we're not well adapted to
>>
>>65926254
How significant are those effects relative to the more common issue of obesity and inactivity though? If everyone was thin and healthy but still grew tits, it would make sense, but 3/4 of the US is fat. How many tits are there in some healthy country that uses plastic with BPA and phthalates (I assume no one has managed to avoid them entirely)? Does the Netherlands?
I generally see manboobs on fat or skinnyfat guys. I question the effects of minute amounts of chemicals even if they are a frequent exposure compared to the mass scale, chronic overeating and sedentary behavior in the west.

My friends are I are all 19-21 and we had one last summer before our mate went abroad.
It was more just hanging out for a day or two with our computers instead of playing games all the time
Sure we played games, but we also watched a film, played poker, ate junk food, took some beers and a skateboard to the local skatepark (which is why I have a scar on my arm).
Very enjoyable experience

reason lans where so good is that playing at 1ms ping with a 0ms crt and a 0ms membrane keyboard was better than using a 30ms cherry keyboard 15+ms LCD monitor that's branded as "1ms" over the net at 20-60ms or so.
>>
>>65943587
basically now that most people use laggy keyboards and monitors lan doesn't feel as much of a advantage so people don't do it.

sure the internet hurt the filesharing part of it but honestly think people went to lans for the 0-1ms feel of games.

Use to do it with a couple of buddies of mine.
One of my friends had a bungalow that was free so myself and two others would use it for a week. We played Civ 5 till 4 am every night and slept till about 2. Repeat. It was pretty awesome desu. We played on shitty laptops then got some gaming pcs and we were set. It was insane as my friend had this shitty hawaii mobile port that sucked but for some reason could host lan no bother.

I totally agree. LAN parties, like many other things, was really fun when I was that age. Then there's the technology factor. We had Internet back in the late 1990s when I was that age but it was slow and not common and in most cases dial-up (as in you paid to be on there). Walking places with CDs and HDDs or computers were the way to copy a bunch of tv-series or games and things like that. It was really .. useful beyond the pure "let's play some games" thing.

Whats your favorite 3 games to play at a LAN?

I have one coming up friday, with a group that does them semi-regularly. Problem is, not a lot of people know eachother that well so if left on their own some might devolve into playing overwatch (which I don't have) or some other LAN-unfriendly games. As such I wanna prepare a few games that I can propose other people play.

Qualifying criteria:
-a 2 hour session feels like you played "enough" (no civ V)
-games I can get of GOG or something DRM-free and copy directly to somebody else's computer and it works, are a plus
-coop vs environment is a plus

So far:

Can it be considered LAN party if all of the PCs in the room are mine? Played some Carmageddon Max Damage and Arma 3 this winter. But we like to play hotseat Worms more.

My friends and I still do LAN parties. Not often, but it's nice to gather together with nostalgia and play some games.

Last time we've gathered together, beers were drank, strong alcohol was sipped, and cigarettes were smoked.

We were playing PUBG squads.

Pretty great game to plan together from one room perspective.

What are some good LAN games?
Trying to cater to experienced players and grills with low attention spans.

Some of the best times I've had were when the school issued laptops to everyone in my grade and there were class to class matches of COD 1

Attended one over the Easter long weekend. Shit was cash.

This guy knows.

Are modern LANs the kind of thing where you have to know someone who does it if you want to find them and get in? I'd love to do this sort of thing but I no longer know anyone who so much as plays games, let alone LANs.

Two guys put the call out on fakebook and IRC to get >>65960552 together, one of which was the host, and has been running these for fucking years. There's about 4 social circles here, none of us really knew each other on the Friday night but everyone was getting along like hot shit by the Sunday night.

Man, those were the days. Now the student group changed lab rules, university doesn't let students stay past midnight inside buildings without tons of bureaucracy and most of the guys have a fucked up schedule.
