    Ok, done a search which was fruitless (as always :devil:). Mostly interested in games for 3 people or for 4, will consider 2 player games or even single player (if fair in regards to everyone getting a game in). I'll start with what I know / have, if anyone has any good suggestions please add to the list. Can do ps2 games as have 60 gig launch model. Can aslo take turns if not boring as hell :)

    So what do you play on lads night? ( or ladies night :cool:)

    My list:

    1. Pro-evo / fifa - Staple lads night fodder at my house
    2. 4 way split screen shooter action (cod / resistance)
    3. Pixel J Racers - got - not so keen on - bit poo imo
    4. LBP - great fun but carnage and difficult to keep everyone on the straight and narrow
    5. Gauntlet2 - not played but read is 4 player
    6. Golf - not my particular morning brew but a favourite of many
    7. Buzz quiz thingy - know it's 4 player but too thick to bother!
    8. Rock guitar world band hero games - bit expensive at moment for me
    9. Brian Lara cricket (ps2) - can have 2 players batting on one side and bowl an over each for other two (great game for banter)

    I think that's all I can think of, like I say doesn't have to be split screen etc. If you play it on lads night and think it works put it on the list :thumbsup:

    ESPN International Track & Field for PS2: it works on PS3 (60GB) and with 4 players it's a hoot, especially the swimming event.

    Calling All Cars: cheapo PSN game with 4 players.

    It might not be Guitar Hero, but Singstar can still be a right laugh when you crank up the rock ballads. It is not just for girls :p

    bishi bashi!! psn store classic ps1 game (I do recommend that game every time someone asks for a multiplayer/girlfriend game recommendation but it's such a good party game and only a few quid )

    it's basically a collection of about 80 really quick (1-3 minutes usually) multiplayer games...crease up:thumbsup:

    Thanks for all the replies :thumbsup:

    Any micromachines type games out there?

    Any mariocart type games?

    Wondering about rpg type 3-4 player also (medieval hack'n'slay, dwarf,wizardy type game)

    Does worms go 4 player? Used to play that a lot

    Watched the james bond nightfire video and it looks cool :cool:

    What's peoples verdict on calling all cars? any good?

    Sinzer - thanks very much for the advice r.e. singstar but the 'Barber quartet' we aint :D would end up with the r.s.p.c.a. round for cruelty to the cat!

    Another vote for Buzz, It's actually really easy, maybe a bit too easy.

    Gotta second this mate. Its a proper laugh if you're drinking with a few mates. You can take it online too after you get bored of beating eachother. Should be able to get it quite cheap now as well.
