We used to play two player Stunt Car Racer on Amiga 500s connected via null modem cable. This was in the late 80s, I guess 4-5 years before Doom came out.
Of course the Amiga 500 is not a "PC" as in IBM PC...and a null modem connection is not really a "LAN". But that's what we had. The Amiga seemed to be lightyears ahead of the PC back in the late 80s. But it didn't take long for the PC to catch up.
