I know this is a bit of an strange request from someone who talks mostly about poker, but I thought I’d put the question to my small non-existant audience anyways. I’m getting together with a few friends soon for an afternoon of multiplayer gaming (XBox and Gamecube) and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for group of 4 competitive guys to play?

    I’ve got an xbox and the games my buddies and I like to play include:

    NFL Fever – it’s arcade enough to be fun (Madden can be frustrating for new players) but football enough to be good.

    NBA Street – I hate basketball, but this is kind of like NFL Blitz for basketball.

    Outlaw Volleyball – It’s fun to look at girls.

    Fusion Frenzy – this is hit or miss with a lot of people. It’s a bunch of little games (kind of like Mario Party I’m told, I’ve never played Mario Party) played for points and the winner is the leader after X number of games.

    Halo – If you like first person shooters.

    Mostly we all play Fever since we’re football fans. I also like Fifa but it’s a lot slower.

    Mmmm…Fifa. I love Fifa, but not sure how into sports games some of the other lads are. Used to crash their occasional LAN session after work in Wolfenstien, so I know they like the FPS, but that’s not always the most fun on the console. And I’ve been sadly underinformed when it comes to new games recently.

    Yeah, console FPS isn’t always that enjoyable, at least in my opinion. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of non-sports-group-gaming experience since that’s the one type of game we all agree on.

    Dead or Alive: Xtreme Volleyball; Any football game; any Sport game. I just bought Top Spin tennis and trying to learn it.

    Yeah, I completely forgot I had Top Spin (the drive on my XBox has been dying, so I can’t play many games anymore, which frustrates me greatly as I was having a lot of fun with Crimson Skies). Top Spin is a lot of fun though, so I’ll need to cart that along as well.
