Good LAN party games?

I am trying to prepare a list of games to give to my friends so that we can have a good old fashioned LAN party. I am trying to think of some games that aren't FPS or RTS games since there are a million of those and primarily what people suggest. But if you have some really good LAN party ones those are welcome as well. There will probably be 8 of us and I am not sure how good everyone's computer is, but I expect everyone has at least a pretty capable PC.

So far I have:
Call of Duty 4
Team Fortress 2
DoTA
A bunch of Half Life mods (me and my friends have been playing most of them for years and they are tradition)

I was also recommended Atomic Bomberman and Trackmania for some alternative to the same old genres.

Anyone have some favorite LAN party games we might dig?

GTA2. It's free.

I've had a good time playing Flatout at LAN parties.

Non rts or fps suggestions...

Worms
Syndicate (the original)

Whoops! Sorry I overlooked this. Unfortunately I don't think I could name any of the top of my head, other than a few racing games.

Re: Good LAN party games?

Sall good. FPS and RTS recommendations are still encouraged, I just wantedt to know if anyone had any good suggestions that were not those.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I will certainly take them all into consideration.

Re: Good LAN party games?

The only game I've ever played in a LAN party type context was Starcraft.
That was every single day of sophomore year.
Best computer programming class ever.

Re: Good LAN party games?

I had a Java programming class in my senior year of high school. For the first half of the year, someone had installed a SNES emulator and ROMs on every computer. Unfortunately, they eventually got deleted. A couple days later, Worms was on every computer and we spent the rest of the year playing it in LAN parties. I didn't do too badly in the class, but I couldn't tell you one line of code two weeks after I finished, let alone 6 years.

Worms is awesome.

I've retained everything I learned in programming.
We played Starcraft off of thumb drives. It was great.
