    AoE 2, with the regicide game mode is great for LAN.

    I have tried Starcraft 2 so far, but we both prefer the more medieval setting or at least less sci-fi-laser stuff.

    Any recommendations?

    I don't really care about the campaign or internet multiplayer experience, just LAN.

    Thanks!

    If Warcraft 3 is your definition of a failure, you must have unbelievable expectations for success.

    It's a wonder what advertisement and brand recognition can get you in sales.

    You don't need to look much further than say, Modern Warfare 2, for a game that, in itself, is a failure, but broke all kinds of sales records.

    Play Age of Empires II's Xpac on Gameranger with your friend. Just 1v1 or comp stomp will get boring. Its also newb friendly.

    All the people who mentioned it should get together and play it. Never gets old for me

    Warcraft 3 is total shit dude... EDIT: Without custom maps the game would be worthless is what I'm getting at


    Whats with all these fantasy RTS games, Sins of a Solar Empire and Homeworld 2. AoE2 is fun as is Total War Rome, never played the other ones though.

    Also Company of Heroes and Dawn of War games are fun to play on LAN.

    we're approaching an era where a games sales are no longer determined mostly by quality and attention to detail but rather marketing and cool trailers.

    Company of Heroes. Actually it kinda sucks for LAN play but it's great if you play online with your friend vs others.

    Settlers III is epic.

    The only thing that MW2 lacked is length and original design. Everything else about it wasn't just okay, it was fantastic. One of the few games I've played through again.

    Though there are always the hipsters of the gaming world, donning lensless glasses and claiming anything that sells more than 5 copies is mainstream crap.

    Warcraft 3 is a amazing lan game, but not for two people though.

    The amazing part comes in form of the custom maps, so.

    AoE2 is unbalanced and boring when you actually know some proper strats.

    And only less than 5 of the civilisations/races are viable.
