For all you die hard gamers out there, hope you enjoy.

Any suggestions for other games you know that the members can join in and compete together then please PM me.

I'm not sure if it's possible but can those games be turned into a multi-player game.
ex. in demolition derby member 1 has a car and member 2 has a car and so on. Then you play against each other....does that make sense?

Makes perfect sense mate but I dont think that game has that function.

I'll have to find a game that somehow has multiplayer options as that would be good fun.

I'll tell ya now, you're gonna struggle to find a multiplayer flash game that plays in realtime. For that you need the game client to be on everyones computer and then it needs to connect to a server which is hosting the game.

Apart from 4wd games, something Different that has a highscore list would be good. I know some fun ones, i'll find them.

Any luck?

Been looking, no luck! Going to be pretty impossible unfortunately. As I said, everyone would need to have the same game on their computer and then connect to a server etc.

There's a game called Rigs of Rods. (http://repository.rigsofrods.com/) I've been playing it lately on my computer. It's an open source game which means that it's free, and it's content is community based. In other words, the community make all the cars and landscapes for the game.
If you aren't too computer savvy, it would be a bit daunting to try this out, but definitely doable. Again, if you aren't computer GAME savvy, it would be frustrating as all hell. Being open source, there's a lot of bugs and glitches. However, it runs good enough to get some pleasure out of if you don't mind some textures disappearing or your car dropping through the ground.

Anyway, the BIG BIG BIG drawcard to this game is the rock crawling and trail driving! Ever wanted a game where you could drive an old school landcruiser up a rocky pathy with lockers and reduction gears? Want to jump in a Hilux and cruise around some trails? This has it. On the flip side, you can also drive massive semi's, recovery trucks with working cranes, winches, booms and also fly planes and helicopters. There's even dodge vipers and camaro drag cars. It pretty much has a car for everyone i think. The best thing is the physics are pretty good too! Some of the community have even put FLEX into the tyres!

It also has multiplayer. So anyone wanting to play this on multiplayer would have to download the game, which isn't big. From what I've read, the multiplayer is a bit buggy though because it is new. Hopefully they sort out the glitches pretty soon and make the muliplayer more stable.
Only down side is that there are no PATROLS!

Here's some You Tube clips to get you going.
