    I've been searching but it's annoyingly hard to find good ones, so I ask. I have 2 controllers setup, and all I've found so far are fighting games, which I'm a bit bored of. So what PC games can be played multiplayer on a SINGLE PC?


    NOT MMOs, SINGLE PC, something like SFIV where you can plug in 2 controllers and play, except Adventure/RPG/etc?


    Right now I have emulators but meh. o.o;

    [FPS] Serious Sam (1st/2nd encounter) is what first comes to mind, it's quite old now, but it's still quite fun.

    Try Ikaruga (It's a Dreamcast game. Hope you have a Dreamcast Emulator)

    Sport games from EA like FIFA, Madden, Rugby, NHL.

    Not my type of games, but they do allow multiplayer on the same computer.

    Little Fighter 2 [​IMG]! (It's a classic).

    Ragnarok Battle Offline: GREAT beat'em up game supporting 4 players as well based on many aspects of the MMO Game itself (It's in Japanese though but it's easy to get around with translations).

    damn dreamcast emulator never worked for me. I tried using it with a soul calibur cdi using both daemon tools and alcohol 120, if you could tell me how to fix it that would be awesome!

    I'm re-playing Heroes 3 right now, after a lot of years... [​IMG] What an awesome game.

    Highly fun in hot-seat for two players! [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for all the suggestions, I'll be looking into a few of them for sure. Rollcage sounds extremely fun, as does a Little Fighter 2 (Used to play it), I probably have RBO (Ragnarok Battle Offline) somewhere on this PC as well.
    Woah, I was unaware of this being possible. How would one accomplish this feat?

    You don't need an xbox controller, any controller will work though you'll have to setup the cfg yourself

    I've once had a 4 player game going, 2 PCs, 2 people on keyboards/mice, 2 people on PS3 controller
