    The lugging may be a drag but it's still great to be gaming with friends around you, having some beers and talking crap between game sessions.

    LANs are more than just people getting together to play games. It's a social thing. We could all also braai at home and chat to each other in TS, but we drive all the way to each other's houses to braai.

    We LAN because it is fun, and you get to hang with your friends and it is alot more social than playing over the internet with them...

    Weird, it's possibly cause I've not lanned for so long that I don't see the point of it anymore :-). I'd rather socialise without the PCs.

    It's fun to play multiplayer games, so I don't see why people shouldn't do it as a social activity every once in a while. I can LAN and socialize without PCs. Neither is mutually exclusive.

    You can LAN torchlight II
    When an anti-piracy method is affecting the game for people who legitimately bought it and causing other people not to buy the game, there is obviously something wrong with it!

    16h00 The okes start pulling in, Big CRT monitors in the boots, fancy flashy light cases on the back seat ( Seat buckled in OFC ). Packets upon packets of Coca Cola roll out the cars, Everyone says howzit, and talk about "New Shit" they have. Setting up was always the fun part with meters and meters of lan cable and bridging switches. The first map of CS was always the "Tester" with excuses starting quick, "Not enough light in the room", "too much light cant see my screen" As mentioned above the chatter that happens inbetween games was always awesome. Then arrived the pizza dood with 8 - 12 Pizzas that somehow completely dissapear in 20 mins between 10 okes. Once the pizza sets in okes start fading very quickly and the whole lot is brought down and cars packed and the okes are on their way again at about midnight.

    Man i miss those days, most of the "okes" have moved on or moved abroad.

    LAN > Internet Play
