Multiplayer games have the unique ability of both creating and destroying friendships. Staying up til 3:00am beating a Left 4 Dead campaign on Expert will make you seriously consider adding that stranger who swooped in to replace the useless Bot after your 45th attempt to your last will & testament. And yet, sometimes they could cause a serious rift in your friendship with your BFF deeper than that of Protoss and Zergs. And much of the time, it's all about the map. We now present the 10 best multiplayer maps in videogame history.

10. Nuketown – Call of Duty: Black Ops

First time you spawn in Nuketown, you know that something is up. Something really, really bizarre. You ain't in Kansas anymore. Well, you might be if Kansas was ever picked to have U.S. suburban nuclear testing grounds.

The map itself bursts at the seams with easter eggs. The population sign in town changes with how many people are in game. If you shoot off all the heads of the mannequins spread throughout their tiny houses (yep, one of them happens to be an exact replica of the Brady household), The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" erupts from government loudspeakers. If you take a break from navigating your explosive RC car through perfectly-manicured lawns, you can spot the infamous "double rainbow" in the skyline.

This may be less of multiplayer map than it is a three ring circus. Not to spoil anything, but if you snipe the same guy three times in a row, you'll get called some pretty nasty slurs.
