Online gaming is very popular these days but there is also an alternative to gaming online. LAN parties are still very popular. During a LAN party the participants connect their computers or laptops via a LAN cable so that they can interact in the game with each other. LAN parties can either be private or for a big number of people. The advantage of a LAN party is that people can interact with each other face to face while gaming. This makes the whole game experience much more communicative.
Private LAN parties are held amongst a bunch of friends or sometimes even family members. After the date for the party is set the participants meet in one location and set up their computer and connect them via a LAN cable. The games played can be of different kind. Some like to play computer based role plays or military games. But each single game which has a multiplayer mode can be used for a LAN party. These parties can go on for hours or even days. People usually drink and have snacks during the game and also take breaks on a regular basis.
LAN parties for many people are organized by a group or company. They take place in assembly halls or other big public places. Sometimes an entrance fee is required. Taking part in a public party can be a lot of fun, too. One gets to meet a lot of new people and can compete with them in the game. During the time people are not playing they can eat or drink and most of the times there is also music playing. This is very similar to a regular party but gaming is still the center of everybody’s attention. During these public LAN parties there is usually a contest. The player wins, who defeats all the others or successfully finishes the quest. Sometimes there is a trophy or some price money to win. But for most of the players it is not about winning but about having fun and competing in a game against each other.
