Although the internet now connects gamers from around the globe, there's just something more satisfying about taking on an opponent who's sitting right next to you. You'll find plenty of these showdowns at BattleGrounds, where a host of purpose-built gaming PC and next-generation consoles await. The games here run the genre gamut and include first-person shooters (Borderlands 2, Halo 4), real-time strategy (Command & Conquer, Warcraft III), and other unimpeachable classics (Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Diablo III). In addition to hosting private parties, the game center also welcomes gamers for recurring events such as its Minecraft pizza parties.
