    i'd love allied assault but i love playing the team style games, anything where team play is needed, but it seems kids nowadays just like FFA games where you can go all rambo and don't need backup from other people.
    thats why i loved team fortress, it relied on teamwork. especially the teamfortress classic (HL version) built around 'hunted'....where one person just has an umbrella as a weapon, and hsi team have to protect him, while snipers try to kill him. amazing teamwork and great fun if played LAN

    i can see your point. how about something along the lines of ghost recon or rainbow six in terms of teamplay? you cant run out all guns blazing in those types of games

    Does the new SimCity game have a multi-player / network option? There's also Spore, in a similar sort of vein. More vaguely educational. I know I looked at Stronghold a couple of times to see if we could actually use it as part of the curriculum. Same might go for a World War I simulation.

    Thats what i thought about battlefiend 1942... there's a lot of historical battles recreated and quite a lot of information at the start or every battle about the real event...

    I'd start by finding out which kids have steam accounts and get a bit of a survey on the go as to what games they've already purchased.

    We ran unreal but not ideal as the school could look bad even going against an advisory restriction.

    Easily hosted by any client tho' and we just added the shortcut after school, and removed it at the end of the session. Same with our racing game..

    Trackmania Nations - completely free and suitable for all ages - great graphics and insane gameplay that's also challenging. You can build your own levels too and race them with your group. Some amazing community tracks out there too.
