Dedicated Game Servers

I've got my fingers in a few metaphorical pies, where by pies I mean LANs. For the existing and two new LANs in town, I seem to be the guy that runs servers and what not (Well, I am officially for two of them, and am having large input in to the other).

So I come to thee, my fellow PC gamers, and hopefully LANers, what dedicated servers would you like to see running 24/7 at a LAN you attended?

Currently, I have...
-TF2
-UT99
-UT2004
-CoD2
-CoD4
-BF1942
-BF2
-BaboViolent 2
-Maybe GMod and/or CS:S

Also running will be Teamspeak or Ventrillo. And DNS, DHCP, a web portal, etc. But that's irrelevant to the question.

What other servers would you like? Or is that a good pick?

It covers all the games I like (and more...), so I can't really ask myself. :p The most common games at the LANs are in that list, but we could do with some newer games too.

I think you need to add MOAR

HL2DM
CSS: Gun Game Mod
CSS : Deathmatch

ZombiePanic Mod.

These are of course all steam games, but I think running the Source Dedicated Server (srcds) rather than through steam's dedicated server mode lets you run more than one (set the ports different) at a time.

I also run ...
Quake 3 Arena
Crysis
Farcry
Trackmania Forever

I aint touchin' CS:S. We dont' want dem folk 'round these parts..

TMN we just fire up on the guy's PC who made teh maps, as we have a resident map maker. It's easier to just get him to run it than set up the server.

Farcry/Crysis. Not many people in our groups seem to like them.

C&C is something I might look in to though.

Dawn of war is great on lan, maybe even battle for middle earth, 1 if you like strategy, not a whole lot of guys and some incredibly overpowered heroes or BFME2 for tons of guys lots of buildings and some more down to earth heroes.

Needs moar poll.

Also, TF2 and UT3 are essential.

Maybe even some Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
