Robocraft is REALLY fun, indeed. Last time i checked, it was a bit awkward to get into a game together but not much of a hassle either. I played it quite long with a friend of mine. However, you cannot create privat matches, which is the exact thing it has to have to be suitabe for gamenight. However, there are constant updates and additions to the game, so we may see that feature included in the future

The first 10 hours of robocraft is just grinding.
Plus I think you can have a party so you can join games together, but I'm not sure.

Games that I suggest that are on Steam:
Synergy (Multiplayer half life 2 mod)
Pirates Vikings and Knights 2 (A half life 2 mod)
Double Action: Boogaloo (Free)
CesarAI (Free, not sure if multiplayer)
Gear Up (Not working on Linux anymore, hopefully fix soon. Also Free)
Dota 2 (Free)

Non Steam games:
Cube 2 (Free)
Wolfenstien Enemy Territory (Free)
Age of Empires II (Can run in Wine)

Not all are free, but I enjoy them.

i write a lot so the games i suggested i wrote on sepearate posts.  after testing half a dozen games (mostly fps) i agree with jay about adding warsow to game night.  i decided this independently, and only read jay's comment above on this thread after i decided upon warsow.  my entire reasoning is here on my post.,3200.msg19409.html#msg19409

I'm hardly free when you guys play, but if I were I'm down with any Doom engine game and mod combination. Using newbielink: [nonactive] online newbielink: [nonactive] games browser and newbielink: [nonactive] id Tech 1 (doom engine) port  finding online games, installing server required wads and game files and playing is pretty seamless. I play a minimum few hours a week.

id Tech 1 commercial games:

Doom (1993)
The Ultimate Doom (1995)
Doom II: Hell on Earth (1994)
Master Levels for Doom II (1995)
Final Doom (1996)
Heretic (1994)
Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders (1996)
Hexen: Beyond Heretic (1995)
Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel (1996)
Strife: Quest for the Sigil (1996)

id Tech 1 non-commercial games:

Chex Quest (1996)
Chex Quest 2 (1997)
Chex Quest 3 (2008)
Hacx: Twitch 'n Kill (1997)
Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch (2010)

Not to mention all the mods, custom maps and wad availble free to download.

For me it's between Alien Arena and Doom..

Evolution RTS (available via Steam, from their website or Desura) would also be quite interesting. Just like OpenRA, it is a very fast-paced RTS with decent graphics.


it uses the opensource spring-engine and is very easy to host.
Take a look into that game. it is really amazing

Alien Arena sounds cool, and Doom is amazing, but Doom is not free of charge. It has to be purchased. However, if you're talking about the shareware of Doom, then maybe that would work, considering that it is allowed to be freely distributed and played unlike the full game.
