I like playing L4D with my friends on the other side of the world, but my ping is awful. What are some good, accessible PC games where this won't matter?

I've got a number of friends I keep up with (partly) by voice chatting with while playing L4D on weekends. Unfortunately, being halfway around the world my ping gets very bad by FPS standards, which makes things a bit frustrating. I'm looking for a replacement PC game. What I have in mind would:
- Play through in no more than an hour or two
- Not require a lot of practice to enjoy
- Be accommodating of slow ping times
- Work with 2-6 people
Steam is great but not a requirement. Cheap is a plus. Current things we've come up with are Torchlight II, Worms, and Dungeon Defenders, though we're looking for more.
Since we do have a few hours at a span together, I'm not looking for something completely turn-based (a lot of us are playing Diplomacy anyway).
