    "Online gaming is great but I still don't see it as any substitute for playing some games with your friends in person. It's getting harder to find games that have local co-op, but Diablo III does not disappoint: it's an excellent game with an engaging multiplayer mode that you won't get tired of anytime soon. "

    "@Eugene Brown Good graphics or not, it's the gameplay that counts for me. Plus the community isn't as toxic as other game communities, so that's a really good plus in my books. But hey, to each their own, bruv."

    "Singlehandedly the best sandbox survival game on the market IMHO, and the fact that it has multiplayer and sooooo many servers just make it better. The community is super annoying and salty tho, but hey, it's a game aimed for kids, so what else did you expect"

DID YOU KNOW?

The biggest LAN party in history had over 22,000 computers participating? It was 22,483 devices to be exact beating the previous record of 17,618 set in 2013. The event, Dreamhack Winter, a three-day digital festival held in a giant hall in Sweden. LAN parties are pretty much an antiquated concept to most gamers today. A LAN (local area network) party is a local game session of gamers, to put it in simple terms. They would come together with their PCs in one place, connect to another, and play. Being local and connected through wires means no lag. That's why LAN parties host skill-based games like Quake and Unreal Tournament.

LAN features are pretty much non-existent today, save on a few old or smaller games. With Internet connection speeds getting better and better, online was the way to go. We've reached a point where you can play a game and experience little to no latency at all. Besides, games today need a constant connection. It's either for downloading content or their progression system in place. The closest thing we get today is local multiplayer games. They still rely on an internet connection though. Another option would be on consoles like the Xbox One and PS4. There are some local co-op multiplayer games for the PS4 with some not needing a connection. They run from the console itself and support up to 4 players.

The number of games that support local co-op these days has unfortunately dwindled dramatically and unfortunately, that is no exception to Fortnite."
