Games With Multiplayer On Same Computer

How many computer games do you know that let you play against fellow opponents on the same computer? Think hard, it's not easy. Why? Because there are barely any, that's why. On any TV console, support for multiplayer mode on the same system is a must-have, and I have no doubt it plays a big role in the increasing popularity of such systems, whereas computers are falling behind. It's come to a point where people get a separate console just to play with friends, but I'd rather use my computer for everything, even this one (you may consider) trivial task.

I'm so used to the keyboard controls, the screen, the speakers & knowing that I can play virtually ANY game on this system, regardless of the console or OS. If people don't like keyboard controls, you can still plug in a gamepad or joystick. There's a great variety and potential for customization and virtually no downsides to this magical console!

But I didn't write this post to debate which console is not just a personal favorite but the absolute best (PC, of course). I wrote this post to serve a list of games I've played that I know support multiple players on the same computer (and I don't mean via LAN - that's NOT the same computer). I'll update it occasionally with new titles.

RT stands for Real Time (meaning both players play at the same time). TB stands for Turn Based (meaning you take turns playing). Of course most games can be played based on turns if you really want to, for example one user can race; then the next can try beating their score: the games I list differ in that they are meant to be played by multiple players, and keep track of players, turns, etc accordingly. Enjoy!
