Simple online 2 player games

  DANZIG 18:56 24 Aug 2010

My other half has just got a laptop and is feeling her first tentative online steps.

At the minute shes obsessed by the games that the evil Facebook provides.

I was wondering if there were any games out there that I could play against her on, in real time, laptop v laptop if you will.

Nothing too complex!! Simple driving or fighting games would suffice, and I'd prefer it if it didn't require a download of a major kind. It was a headache enough trying to educate her this far!

Only thing i can think of is Halo CE,
You can pick up a copy of the game for £5 so no downloading.
It has both Fighting and vehicle elements to it and should run on most modern laptops.

You can setup a private server in seconds which doesn't require any pc knowledge and password it so only you and your partner can play.

You will need 2 copies of the game, 1 for each computer but as i said you can pick it up for pennies nowadays.
