PC racing games with 'ken LAN support!
So where have they all gone? GTA-VC has an aftermarket mod to allow multiplayer but it's lifespan is pretty short, NFS Underground has online-only (and max of 4 players! Laughable), Ford Racing 2 is, would you believe, 2 FRIGGING PLAYER SPLIT SCREEN, ... I mean, where the hell has the traditional LAN game gone!??!? **** me!!!!!
Hell, if they could code up such great old games as NFS2 which had 8 player support in DOS, then why can't software houses do a BETTER job with NEWER AND IMPROVED tools and code!?!?!!? @#)(*#@)(*!!!!!
Ok I'm after something in the mould of good old Screamer / Screamer 2 - mindless arcade fun that you can load and play with some mates, without having to dick around with 1001 adjustments on the car. This rules out "Live For Speed" and the like, as frankly I can't be ****ed spending time finding the "ultimate 1337 combo". I just wanna play the damn game!
So, is there ANY driving games out recently that even offer LAN mode any more, and are they any good? Will I be forced to make a Win98 / DOS partition on my old slug PC to play my old favourites on, if there are no current games that fit the bill?
