    Post anything related to LAN parties here :)

    Some mates from school and I had a 4 day LAN at one of our houses recently. A few people popped in and out, 8 people being the most we had at once of 9 total. We ended up mostly playing TF2, but also played SC2, LoL, TM and L4D2.

    Holy fucking white nerd kids.

    I hate lan parties. I never enjoyed any of the ones I attended in college, and the lans my 30+ friends throw are good, but awkward when I'd hit on their wives.

    I only know one other guy with a gaming-capable PC, and I built the thing for him.

    Needless to say I've never been to a LAN party, though I'd imagine there's something to do in San Francisco.

    Used to have small gaming sessions with my friends several years back playing DotA and we would set up shop at each others houses - although most had laptops so it was relatively easy to move around. Online communication (TeamSpeak, Xbox Live) have taken a bit away from the LAN experience and advantages but I would still prefer a LAN setting over an online setting
