Best multiplayer games? Why?

Hi Guys,

I'm doing some research for our game and was wondering what your thoughts were on multiplayer.

To be specific,

1. What are your favorite multiplayer games?

2. Why? what part of the system make it top class?

Thanks in advance!

1. On iOS: Shadowgun: Deadzone.

2. It works and isn't laggy. The controls are comfortable and easy to use. Each game is quick.

BTW, I hardly play online multiplayer games over the internet.

Also, Shadowgun: Deadzone did not need me to give my email or Facebook or Twitter just to play.

This question is way too general.

Galcon Fusion - Addictive and challenging. Multiplayer is what makes this game.

Your strategy has to adapt to the way others are playing the game.
You can just jump right into a game and spend a few minutes in team games or spend hours playing FFA and team games.

UPDATE: The developer just completed a kickstarter campaign for Galcon 2 too and succeeded!

What kind of multiplayer? That's a broad spectrum.

FPS: Modern Combat 4(best multiplayer game on iOS, any genre!!)

Sports: Fifa 13

TPS: Trigger Fist

Not much experience in rest. Bike Race was something me and my friends enjoyed a while ago.

Thanks everyone, I will check those out. To be specific, we are working on multiplayer for Dragon Island Blue, in which you

collect monsters: travel the world, battle monsters and catch them.

make a line-up of monsters: think baseball's battling order. line-up cant be changed mid battle, 3 monsters are present from each party and when one goes down, the next one in line replaces it.

battle: classic rpg style, think early Dragon Quest games, with monster abilities inspired by card games.

COD WAW Zombies. Just damn fun.

Heroes and Castles. More damn fun. Tactical, strategical, get to hack up skeletons.

Agreed.

Also: online sniper league. Especially if you play with someone who's in the same room It's a very original strategic shooter.
