Awesome, Street Fighter 4. I've actually got that one too! Yay! After that though I'd have to vote for Rock Band 2 and Call of Duty. While I don't like Call of Duty all that much it's still a much better choice than MK vs. DC which isn't on as many platforms nor does it allow as many players. It'd be much easier to arrange games with CoD than MKvDC. And Rock Band over Guitar Hero due to... well I like Rock Band better. :P

LOL! You can always rely on typos. Btw, what was on my mind was Left 4 Dead.... so.... I typed 4 instead of 3.

call of duty world at war seems like the best game to me. It holds more players than any of the other games(correct me if im wrong) and it seems like a popular game based off of the comments in the game night page

Oh and for May my thoughts are:

Week 1: Wii dedicated game - No Clue
Week 2: PS3 dedicated game - Killzone 2
Week 3: PC dedicated game - Dawn of War 2
Week 4: Xbox 360 dedicated game - This might sound a bit out there but why not get together some sort of Horde mode thing for Gears of War 2. Just a thought.

Thanks everyone. I have updated the original thread with everyone's suggestions. Feel free to vote for the end of April game in the poll.

The Wii list is quite hefty from having a dedicated Wii discussion the past few weeks. If for some reason these Wii games are not capable to handle internet multiplayer matches please let me know.

For the first week I would suggest Bomberman over the others. It's a really fun game and SSBB has already been done and I think Mario Kart might get a little heated in a bad way (snaking, bikes vs. carts, blue shells... yeah... bad times online).

For weeks 2 and 3 I would definitely suggest not doing Unreal Tournament 3 since it's been done before. Killzone 2, BF2142 and Dawn of War 2 haven't had a game night yet. So I'm inclined to go with the newer stuff than the old stuff. For Week 4 since it's all repeats I'll vote for the one I could participate in, so Gears of War 2.

In the end I'd happily change my vote to whatever game more people actually own.

How about sometime you do a Resident Evil 5 multiplayer. The DLC is now avaliable, while it may not be worth the price tag, a lot of people have already downloaded it, inclucing myself

Before jumping on the RE5 train we might want to do a poll to see who even owns the DLC here. It doesn't matter how much it was downloaded if nobody who plays game night has popped out the money for it. Color me cautious when it comes to making a game night out of downloadable content. Depending on tastes, available money and interest the people who own it can vary wildly.

How about Burnout Paradise, GRID, Scene IT or Worms. GRID would be good with the destruction derby races, but I suppose it is dependent on the percentage of people who own the games.

I am thinking if Tekken 6 or Soul Calibur 4 would work cause maybe a lot of users woulld definitely want to play this and maybe a lot of users have already owned these two games by now. Both are potentially great fighting games and i am sure almost everybody likes to play fighting games so i see a great game night with these two great games.

Since there weren't that many votes on the RB and GH games, and Res5 has two platforms available, I've added it for week 4 of April.

Those who don't have the versus DLC can participate by playing the co-op mode. 

UPDATE: Also decided to have Killzone 2 as the first PS3 dedicated week. We still need your help on deciding a good game for Week 1 (Wii), Week 3 (PC) and Week4 (XBox).

-(Week 1) Mario Kart Wii: Mario Kart wii works really well unlike any other of those wii games. And it is very fun. It also supports 12 players which would be great. If we do have a Mario Kart Wii Game Night I would be willing to host.

-(Week 3) Dawn of War 2: I'm not really big on pc gaming so i guess Dawn of war 2

-(Week 4) Gears of War 2: Very fun, competative multiplayer. I personally have a lotta fun playing this game for hours. Battlefield bad company has fun multiplayer but it has the whole squad system and u can only chat with your squad(4 players). So that would disconnect everyone from each other. My second choice would be call of duty 4. Never gets old. But definitely gears 2 my top pick. Its a newer game.

Well if we don't want the disconnect with Gears of War 2 we could always split up into little Horde mode thingies. I know the point is to kick each others butts but it's an idea. I'll be there for RE5 in the chatroom and participating in the single player mode. I refuse to shell out for the DLC.

the disconnect i was talking about was for battlefield bad company. but i still agree with you. we should have a horde group and other types of groups. good idea

The archive shows that we hosted a Gears of War 2 game night in November. I would like to play Gears of War 2, but only if there are no other game we wouldn't be able to consider.

@realkilla: Oh. I haven't played Gears 2 online competitively so I wasn't sure. Plus I totally misread your post. Whoops! :)

@Jody: I believe we've also done Battlefield Bad Company and CoD 4. The only reason I suggested Gears out of the whole mess is that non-competitive types can still play Horde mode together and it's hard to actually play GoW2 online. Too many glitches / exploits. At least with CGN we can weed most of that out. That said I'm pretty open to changing that if someone else gets a better idea or one that's not been done before.

Brian Ekberg and just about every other Editorial staff have decided that they want to challenge everyone on May 26th in a game night dedicated to UFC 2009 Undisputed. The game comes out on May 19th so get your practice in via game rental or purchase days before then!

I own Dawn of War 2 so that's where my interest still lies. I don't own any of the other games suggested so it'd be kind of hard for me to vote for them. :P

Ryan MacDonald asked last week when we planned to have a Counterstrike game night. We may be able to get a CS:Source game night going. What are your thoughts on that one?

Personally, I'd really like to play TF2. :D

I have power supply issues with the latest of games, ever since I installed my gtx285 gpu, so I'll have to sit the next few games nights out.

Also, what about a PS2 night? I'm sure there are a lot of popular games on there, and you'd be more likely to rake in a large group of gamers there than the PS3. I know it isn't the latest and greatest system, but I still don't have a PS3 (even though I have some games for it). It doesn't have to be any time soon, but I reckon it'd be nice.

The only games I can think of are Phantasy Star, Champions of Norrath and the SOCOM games. And most of those have dropped off as far as the online communities go.
