So me and some buddies are going to be doing an Xbox360* LAN party. What are some good games that will do split screen? We have 3 TVs, 3 Xboxes and 6 people. We usually do Halo and Gears 2. Does Black Ops do split screen over system link?

Other games I was thinking are Halo Wars, RUSE, Hawx 1/2, Hot Pursuit, OrangeBox, Blitz 2, and Castle Crashers.

Any other recommendations?

Any good places to get these games cheap?

I was planning on renting and a few of us have Gamefly, so price isnt a huge issue.

*We also have 2 PS3s, but might be able to get a third. We have a lot less PS3 games, but any recommendations on them are welcome too.

I always enjoy 4-player LAN Black Ops zombies.

The Xmen Arcade game that was on sale a month back on XBLA...it is a good side scroll arcade game (like the more popular Turtles Arcade or The Simpsons Arcade) but it works for 6 people instead of 4. it is a short game though, only like 6 levels, so you could play though over and over...but a good time nuntheless.

Black Ops does 2 per xbox I lanned up to 6 xboxes for a tournament in our squadron. L4D/2 is always fun. Check out www.co-optimus.com they have lists of games that can be lanned together.

I would say L4D or L4D2 on Xbox would be pretty fun.

Thanks for the site. I'll look through it when I get off work. Sounds like Black Ops is the best competitive MP since we can do 3v3. I'll also look for the Xmen game. I have a blast with the old TMNT games, and we can all play at once.

I thought of borderlands, but starting a new character seemed a turn off to me. We probably wont play any 1 game more then 3-4 hours, so we would barely break the surface on borderlands.

I forgot about Crackdown. We did that one a while back. Saints Row was fun, but Crackdown was much better. Thanks!

Dungeon Siege 3 will have 2 player local Co-op? (Release Date: June 20, 2011)

I think I will be looking at that more seriously now.

hmm, you could try warhawk if on the ps3.

the game is hella old, but it's still fun... it may not be everyone's cup of tea though, so best to check it out beforehand.

it does have 4 player splitscreen online on unranked servers and offline. it also has a lan option but im unsure if it will allow splitscreen on one screen.
