Playing Games with Others over the Internet

The new multiplayer Internet games included with Windows Me are just a sample of several features designed to facilitate playing third-party, multiplayer games on the Internet. Many third-party games—especially those in the shoot'em-up genre—enable you to participate in head-to-head contests with other players or play the game by yourself, with the computer as the opponent. This multiplayer capability adds a whole new dimension to gaming.

If your system is on a network, you can play against others across the LAN. A multiplayer-capable game enables you to specify one system as the game server (or host); other players can then connect to the host across the network and join the game.
