    Default Your favorite 3 - 4 player offline simultaenous or split screen games?

    Any console, it just has be a game where 3 or more players can play at once, offline.

    For me, the N64 is the undisputed king for these type of games. I probably dont even have to mention them but 007, Mario Kart, Mario Party, and Smash Bros.

    Outside of that, I liked Halo, Fuzion Frenzy 1 and Gauntlet Dark Legacy. I was never able to play 3+ multiplayer on Hunter the Reckoning but thats one of my favorites. Crash Team Racing was fun as well back in the day.

    For me it's 'Fuzion Frenzy' and 'Bomberman Jetters'.

    I'm pretty sure I've played those more than any other 3+ player simultaneous offline game that wasn't a 'Mario Kart' or 'Golden Eye' (or course)

    Playing 'Fusion Frenzy' (with the DDR 4th Mix Soundtrack) was our freakin' life for like two years straight. It would have justified owning an XBOX if we never had another game for it.

    Man, I really miss bring able to use your own custom soundtracks to games.

    My favorites are Mario Kart 64 and the Monkey Target mini-game in the first Super Monkey Ball.

    Any of the AKI N64 wrestling games. WCW/NWO Revenge, WWE Wrestlemania 2000, or WWE No Mercy. Likely the Smackdown games too but I've never played more than two player on those.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.
