    Hey, I'm trying to rack my brain for a fun game that has the following features, but I'm coming up with zilch. Anyone have suggestions?

    >Avatar system where I can import or create my own avatar.
    >Has a multiplayer function (not an MMO)
    >Something with a reasonable amount of challenge, but nothing serious either.
    >Has replay value (for the multiplayer aspect).
    >PC would be the preference.

    If anyone can think of something that more or less fits this mold (and is NOT Minecraft), please make a post.

    Indeed, the constraints are quite limited.

    would something like Super Mario War work?

    Trouble in Terrorist Town? (garry's mod)

    Galactic Civilizations, 3 being the most recent.

    You can both choose from pre-made character portraits or create your own.
    Has multiplayer.
    It's 4X with an adjustable difficulty.
    Replayability from multiplayer mode and from choosing to go through different development paths/routes on either singleplayer or multiplayer.
    Available on Steam.

    GalCiv3 looks to be the most promising so far. Thanks for the suggestion :)

    I cannot recommend Fantasy Life and Monster Hunter enough. Except neither are for PC.

    behind a keyboard or a gamepad
    Toukiden Kiwami??
    God Eater Burst if you have PSP/Vita or emulation is an option.
    Borderlands almost qualify, falls short in the character customization aspect but covers everything else.

    These are all great suggestions so far. The only issue is getting everyone I'd want to do multiplayer with to get the same hardware. And Borderlands definitely is fun ^^
