Title: Multiplayer Modes: When Did They Start?
Posted: June 26, 2007 (12:20 PM)
I have a question that's been burning at me for a while. I want to know when splitscreen multiplayer first began, and on which game! Please!

All I know about it is that in the age of 8-bit and 16-bit, SM was very rare. I remember this dungeon game (possibly a Dragon Quest?!) where the players were controlled on seperate screens. It was first-person, I know that.

Please, if anyone knows this, post a reply and let me know! I'll add another blog entry and state the answer once somebody tells me.

Sorry this one's so short, but I'm very rushed right now. I must go now! Bye!

Zero Tolerance on the Mega Drive is the earliest I remember. I've been thinking of Speccy multiplayer stuff and it all seems to be one screen. The arcade oldies like Gauntlet, Double dragon and Operation Thunderbolt are all opne screeners. Although I wager some of the early racers had to use split screen.
