Title: Any of you guys play StarCraft?

But seriously, I've been playing StarCraft a lot lately, and it would be fun if some of us got together and played a few games.  Assuming some of you are decent, that is :P  I'm not very good myself, but I've been trying to get better.

No, but if you wanna play some Counter Strike . . . I'm all over that. Or Unreal Tournament.

I've never played any multiplayer game on my PC. Well, I played Doom 2 in Deathmatch with a roommate several years ago, but that hardly counts...

Several years ago I played many network games with my two brothers (Command & Conquer 2, Duke Nukem 3D,Age Of Empires,Starcraft..). But that has changed and today I hardly play any online/network games. And I play none with my own computer - when I visit one of my friends I sometimes play Counter Strike or Unreal Tournament with him because he's got a laptop but that's all about network games.

I'm not an online gamer. I have played a few briefly, but my gaming experiences are better when I don't have to deal with lag and/or 13 year old AOLers. I've never been into PC games much at all, really.

You'd have to have a pretty old computer to lag StarCraft, or a dial-up modem, neither of which are prevelant in online play - at least from what I've experienced.

Back in my college years, my roommates and I would play LAN games every night and weekend.  Age of Empires, Starcraft, Netstorm, Quake(1 or 2), Age of Wonders, Allegiance, etc.  Most of the time we played cooperatively, and really slaughtered the computer enemies.  



For example, in Starcraft, I would play human, one guy would play Protoss, and another had Zerg.  The Protoss guy would set up a defense perimeter for all of us, the Zerg would kick out thousands of infantry, and the Protoss would work on the monstrous battleship-thingy.  Eventually, he would take one of my builders and build some firebats too.  Then, we'd all charge in (usually against a Zerg), and slaughter them in no time flat.
