What games profit most from really fast connection (1Gbps)?

  1. Hello everybody

    Later this month the citizens of our town will get really fast Internet access, up to 1Gbps syncron connection (guaranteed speed).
    We will demonstrate the possibilities this fast connection gives, such as gaming.

    Now, what I would like to ask you experts is:
    What on-line game(s) will profit most on a fast connection? Are there games where such a high speed will provide great advantages - given that the PC is up to the task, of course?

    kind regards

    Any online fps shooter would benefit such as the age old Counterstrike or Team Fortress 2. To be fair, there won't be much difference between a good 10Mbs or 100Mbs line when it comes to just gaming; however, what you can demonstrate is how someone can be streaming a full HD video (from youtube etc); another person is downloading something and a third is gaming online. With a 1Gbps line, the gamer won't notice any lag/change in latency.

    Thanks, Ultraman

    A few days ago we launched 1 gbps connections in my little village.
    Next summer we hope to arrange a gaming session of some sort.
