Go ahead name some games that are dead but shouldn't be
>>349941Final Fantasy XIV Legacy
>>349941delta force 2
>>350024I never really undersood that. I wanted to try out ut, so i dowloaded the newest one on egs, but its just abandoned and unfinished. Do the older games still have players and can you still play them?
>>350051not anywhere near where i livethe new ut was unfinished garbage abandoned for fucking fortnite >>349941
If your game is dead, it's because it's shit. Deal with it.
>>349941Rip in piece my little flying ninja robots
Alone in the dark
>>350114More like together in a fire.
Battlerite should be dead for how the devs completely bungled it, but I wish it wasn't.
Contagion they updated it recently and it runs alot better
Insurgency. Insurgency Sandstorm wasn't even a fraction as good as the original.
>>349947>Mabinogi>dead>hella events and updates>even events organized by the communityat least nexon cares about its playerbasealso know the difference between niche and dead
call of duty
spiral knights + gangs of space
Gotham City Impostors, the only capeshit related product that's actually really good
Ideally, none of them.>>350051The UT series have pretty great bots, so you'll be somewhat close to a regular MP game, aside from downloading a server's maps in game and some buggered AI in objective modes (UT99 Assault comes to mind).
>>349941WildstarThe entire UT seriesTERA (not really dead but dying pretty fast)Sad to see a lot of good games from the 00's and 10's go so soon
>>349941Auto Assault, nothing else like it since.
>>350473If it had private servers instead of that god awful matchmaking I would still be playing it to this day.
>>350051If you have good ping to EU they still have players, but NA mostly went over to UT4. Epic is a small struggling company and can't afford to put any devs on it, please understand.
>>349941Natural Selection 2
>>349941Reign Of Kings(it wouldnt be if the devs didnt run off with the fucking money)
Basically a Enders Game multiplayer shooter. Reviewers shat on it because they lacked spatial recognition ability.
>>350966It sucks how this game went from having one gun with a ton of nuance to a shitload of generic guns.
>>349941Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO)... it's hanging on for deal life because developers won't merge servers. >_>
>>349941Friday the 13thBy far the best horror multiplayer game, but lost dev support and for some reason took five years to get a good sale price.
>>351019>>350311Is Spiral Knights still ok if I just want to grind and not bother with other players?
>>351023Yeah for grinding it's good
>>349941Adventure time battle party
Evolve. That game had amazing art and sound, and the community was so so great, met tons of awesome people. And it was fun as hell when everyone was still figuring out the meta. But holy fuck it became very apparent after a few months that it was unbalanced throughout all mmr levels and they made balance changes and content updates so damn slowly. If they had done the 2.0 changes earlier and stopped pay walling content so aggressively it might have lasted a while.
QuakeIt's not fair bros..
Super Monday Night Combat. Literally no mechanical problems, just a complete lack of matchmaking.
Arcanists and Armies of Gielinor.Sucks that funorb got shut down, I still miss it till this day.
Pirates Vikings and Knights 2
WildStar. For all common sense, it really SHOULD be dead. The launch was just that bad. But I want to live in an alternate universe where it didn't shit the bed.
>>351912Honestly, I wasn't even against Attunement (even if it was retarded).It just had nothing to hold it up even once you finished Attunement. It was fleshed out enough mechanically, it just needed a good supply of content.But then it had piss to do, so it fell off quickly and the few content updates they did never took off and it fell to the wayside overall. It tried to be a WoW clone and failed, simple as.
>>351939I liked the attunements. I did them even though I didn't plan on doing the raids. The BIGGEST problem was technical issues. It was almost fucking unplayable for a few months. Then once people got past that, like you said the lack of content at endgame. By the time they added the scaling space missions there was a decent amount of stuff for launch, they fixed the targeting system and even made housing better...But by then it was like a year in and they already knew it was going down, they were just polishing the content they'd already started pre-production.
>>349941Titanfall 2Had its chances anyways. It’s probably the skill ceiling more than the release timing at this point.
>>352019>release timingNo, the single biggest problem for Titanfall 2 was Origin exclusivity. It's actually the game that led to EA slowly crawling back onto Steam.>Fucking on sale for $6 and still barely anyone playing it because it still requires OriginThe old PvZ shooter games are more fucking popular (Garden Warfare 1 and 2).
Watch any mintage of this
>>352019The problems with Titanfall 2 that have kept it from building an audience are, in order of severity:>Origin exclusive>EA quality advertising>Shitty release timing>The extremely high skill ceiling means that people who started playing it immediately completely shit on new players>Too many different gameplay modes, but no ranked/tryhard mode to filter out the best playersThose two basically keep people from playing it unless they absolutely love it, and thus don't recommend it to their friends or have it spread via word of mouth.There's probably more too, but whatever.It's a great concept for a game, but it really needs to be balanced.
Defender Of Texel, it died because of boomer suit greed, but was generally a great game. I still can't find a game like it.
if only someone who cared about this game bought the IP
Quake Wars died so fast. Also Frontlines: Fuel of War.
>>349941WildstarGigantic evolveall good and unique games with not enough to do, dev hells, dev self-sabotages, and all 3 had horrible f2p relaunches. wildstar was genuinely the wow killer. if it came out around TBC. but it came out at WoD. people left this game to go play fucking WoD. and it was too hard for normies to step foot in the first raid. literally unpugable first raid at the difficulty level of end-of expansion raid bosses from wotlk cata or mop. heroic dungeon gold medals in the attunement deleted this fucking playerbase so fast, and the lvl 50 PVP was vanilla wow AV AOE spam zerg tier. f2p relaunch was a fucking joke that just made everyone who raided the OG version sadgigantic was just fucking amazing, serious dev hell, mismanagement, but it was a finished game when it went f2p. completely drowned out by a dozen other pixar/cell shaded hero moba whatever shooters that would have been late to the hero moba shooter genre if gigantic didnt have to spend like 2 years as some obscure inaccessible windows 10 bundle item that about 200 people heard about. again, overwatch was out when this went f2p and got popular for about a month. game is DEAD dead, you cannot play it period. evolve was exactly what it was supposed to be, sick ue4 graphical promo of a game. monster was fun, hunters were all fun. matchmaking murdered this shit inside a month. wit 15 minutes for the role/team you wanted, someone is mad they got monster because literally nobody played both equally, and MM was account level based. lvl 1 vanilla default monster vs 500hrs minmaxed ultra meta hunters, because you also only played hunter for 500hrs. again, joke f2p relaunch that nobody played. the amount of fucking dialog between characters in the drop ship before matches was absurd, very soulful game
>>352210It looked fun. Never got to try it.
>>351912Miss this lil nigga like you wouldn't believe
Warhammer online. Game was actually busy AF in the 3 months before it shutdown. Has a pserver community that goes well to this day.
>>352241>GiganticYeah, the fucking Windows 10 exclusivity murdered that game since it was during a period where everyone hated Win10 and refused to use it.>Now people are only using it cause they're too lazy to learn how to play Windows games via Wine and Win7 support ended
>>353000They're doing gods work over at RoR
>>350853I miss this shit like you wouldn't believe.
>>353024(user was banned for saying mean words ingame by nazi devs)
>>349941Exteel>>350018I miss it, the ship designs were pretty kino
I still cannot phatom how a game could perfect a formula so well and die completelyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xV_arPt_a4
>>353495You guys have no idea how much I hate the chinese
>>353558Holy shit that brings me back. Played this back in pre alpha, one of the best multiplayer games I've ever played. Up there with TF2. Sad that the devs didn't realize their entire playerbase was 14 year old Brazilian kids who couldn't afford to buy games, (no shade, I loved those guys) and so they killed the game when they tried to sell it rather than keeping it free. Are there still downloads of some of the older free versions? This is making me want to boot it back up.
>>353558The custom maps and mods for this game were pure soul
>>354059same anon, just found a really old build on the old forums. No grabbing, throwing, or even improvised weapons yet, real old school. Posting here in case anyone else happens to also remember this gamehttps://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZVg0TFeUhzaDI4ZUYyQ3hyNDg/view?resourcekey=0-vD3AiX4AqX0sjoSAIMBfVw

>>350051Depends on region like >>350554 said
>>350853>>351545>>351787>>352042all deserve to be dead
>>354186If you single out your post or be more specific i'd be happy to explain why it rightfully deserves to be dead.

You can't believe how much i miss Tribes Ascend
>>349941natural selection 2
>>352154great game for ERP
>>353024Always hear bad things about the devs. Never played long enough to deal with them though. The general gameplay loop is just shit even though it seems like it could be so much fun.
>>349941In the west? Maplestory 2.At least its still alive in Korea. I'm keeping the hype alive by commissioning nude 3D models from the assests.

>>356119>>356145my heart :(
Halo post-360 eraA franchise owned by the richest software company in history should not be as soulless and mediocre as it is now
>>351912ironically the launch wasn't even as bad as mmos are now adays.
Are we allowed to name games that never even got a chance to live? Fuck Nimble Giant for not advertising their game, launching it with a price tag into a genre that historically doesn't do well if it's advertised AND F2P, and then just immediately abandoning the game on launch.
>>357199Whoops, forgot the image because I had to attempt the captcha 20 times. Fuck that too.
>>353000RvR with only 2 factions is shit

>>358505good to know
Everquest online adventures.This was my first mmo. It was super basic but so in depth at the same time. It consumed my childhood more than wow ever could have.This mmo came out around the time ffxi did and they were competitors as the “console” mmo. Ffxi however was ahead of it’s time with cross platform play, where as eqoa was strictly on the ps2.Because it was only on the ps2, it died around 2012 when they closed ps2 servers down/devs gave up.There’s a small group currently remaking the game as an emulator and you can log in to the world, but it’s extremely alpha. Level cap is 2 and resets when you level again type stuff, but the world is there.I can’t wait to return home some day. The best part about this mmo that makes all the pc Everquest og’s absolutely seeth was lycanthropy.There was werewolf, werebear, wererat, werelion and weregator, all had their own quest like to obtain and there was a counter part of werehunters, a class mastery you could get if you weren’t a lycan.They eventually added vampires as well.
>>349947>>350207How many average players has Mabinogi in 2021?
Killing floor 1JUST LET IT GO F2P YOU FUCKING KIKES
I never got to play this game, and it makes me sad.
>>358957keep an eye on blrevive
>>349941It fucking hurts. RIP Gigantic.
>>350051UT99 has a loyal community on the US and South america, but UT2K4 has more players on Europe.
Reminder that AFPS deserved to die.
Tribes: Ascend and Blacklight: Retribution, my first two PC shooters as a zoom zoom. I played the fuck out of those two games from near release for both until late 2015 and spent all my allowance every month on them lel. I feel like I owe everything to those two games for the skill I have now, they really trained me well. The legal-wallhacks in blacklight taught me the importance of map knowledge, good positioning, and general aim stuff and tribes with the insane player tracking/prediction. Honorable mention for Firefall as well but the Development lead(s) practically begged for the game to die with all the bullshit they pulled, they had a solid foundation to work on. Fun game and a fairly decent player base at launch but every major patch removed more than it added and shit up what was left.
>>359640Where's the lie, tho?
>>353481A man of exquisite taste. Global Agenda deserved better.
>>359795You're alright, zoomer.
>>357460chuckled. good one anon
>>350018Came here to say this
>>349941Master X Master by NCSoft, there's nothing quite like it.
>>360992no i think that one deserved to die
>>350114is a good game
>>354180Is that webm supposed to be impressive?
>>356652prove it, post one
>>360993Well I see you were the one of the ones who I beeped your phone and found you in pvp.
>>360997You are passive aggressive like a woman
>>361021Yeah, well you "rocket jump" like one
Day of Defeat Source
>>350966Fucking going dark, hearing nothing but your own breathing, trying to sneak up on some fucker from behind and upsidown to them. Nothing has topped that feeling in a long time.
Fallen Earth before it went F2P. The F2P wasn't actually the problem, the stupid ass changes to the game they made as they went F2P that were not even helped by paying were the problem.
>>349941crack dot com's abuse
>>361976Oh god. That game had so much potential. I remember playing it through all the shitty changes and I felt really bad. I still feel really bad. Fuck, I hope they actually pull through with the "remake" or whatever they were planning.
>>350966the closest thing we'll get to it is boundary
>>349998>Hellgate killed my graphics card back on release. Never forgiven it. Also it played like ass.>>350126I'm never touching another SLS game. They fucked up Bloodline Champions, remade it as Battlerite, fucked that while also trying to ride the battle royale train, and fucked both of those, and now expect me to be excited for their next project that they will once again mismanage into oblivion. Why was Blossom so fucking cute?>>350853Nosgoth fucked the LoK series plot and can get in the bin.>>352032You are right, Origin's shit and I didn't buy TF2 because of it.
>>359640totalbiscuit was a gem.
>>354180I agree. Here's one that isn't dead though.The only games in stores that have magazines in them, are Fortnight, Animal Crossing, Minecraft, and maybe one other.
>>349941SCP:SL. Community never fully recovered after being shit on and fractured. I miss it.
City of Heroes/Villains - Theres some private server or whatever but that game deserved a sequel.Doom Multiplayer through Zandronum.... its really fun but barely anyone plays
>>361976>>362320CHOTA! CHOTA! CHOTA!
Acclaim Bots.Loved the pvp and pve of that game. Wish the developers weren't so cheap and had their money issues fixed.
>>353558>>354059>>354067I found an old build if anyone wants to download try and play. Beta 1.0.2c, thread here: >>363918
PUT YOUR BACK INTO ITMAGGOTS
>>363860fuck dude I played the god damn shit out of this game, being a f2p cuck was suffering though
>>359640He's completely right.>game comes out that's too much like quake"I'd rather just play quake">game comes out with too many innovations"This isn't a real arena shooter, I'd rather play quake"quakefags are the worst. they shit on every other shooter for being "casual" and when you try to appeal to them it ends in disaster for the above reasons. they're elitist pricks and their games deserve the death they got.
>>363860Oh fuck, THAT'S the name of the game! I'd been thinking about this the other day but I couldn't remember what it was called. Good shit, though
GTA IV multiplayer was the shit. I'd spend countless nights in Mafiya Work or Freeroam. That is what GTA Online should have been.
>>355861There are 3 servers going good in the US, and a few in Brasil and Russia. I'm talking about source, never played the first one
>>351545that game committed suicide. I don't know why so many devs on the verge of making a legendary game fall into the trap of turning it into freemium gacha trash.
>>350853Nosgoth is one of those games I fucking lovehate, like the Shadowrun fps. Completely fucking horrible brand name/series tie ins but fun and decent games if you ignore what they tried to cash in on entirely.
>>349941getamped2at least some autists are making a private server of it, but it's slow going>>350689based, though I wish there were some QoL options for people wanting to play grounded units vs commander/RTS mode, like say a separate queue or something though there might've been one and my memory is just shit>>353558duck game scratches a similar itch if you haven't heard of it before>>356652ms2 deserved to die in the west with all the faggotry that the GMs enabled. there was unironic market manipulation and people ripping + reuploading everyone's UGC, and that's without getting into the limp-dicked fuckery like canceling ALL GM events because literal poopsocking retards that got bullied out of the korean version ended up crying because a GM used "/kill" on a raid boss during one of the beta tests.
City of heroesGuild warsAnd Star wars galaxies Battlefield : bad company
>>366006which bad companyyou can still play either of them
>>350689Doesn't it still have a small, but active, community?
>>366141most good games or even half-decent games doI still play zombie panic source and theres about 3 active servers with around 20-30 people on at any given time.
>>366006Don't all of these still exist? Low player count is not really dead.
Natural-Selection 1 for Half-Life. NS2 is fucking trash
>>350966Kino, this game deserved WAY more attention than it got.
Firefall.Man, that game was handled so poorly.
>>364038>>363860>>364567>tfw hacking this game with fucking cheat engine for unlimited ranged attacked and they all insta killed the enemies.Good fucking times. Genesis AD is my game that I miss a lot. That beta was the best beta for a game I've ever played. Then some retards thought it was a good idea to change how the boosting works and completely fucking ruined the appeal of the game. Stupid fuckers.
>>367850Aren't they making another game, Ember?
>>350966came here to post thisIs it possible to run a server still? I would run a server for this game>>350997I never played it when it was one gun, what was the difference? I assume they changed it because they worried people felt the game lacked depth as a result.
I'll never forget
>>367991Yes, but I don't trust them one damned bit.
>>350966This game deserved so much better. About time someone learned from what mistakes it made.
>>349941>>359249It was too soon
>>366141if a game is good, there will ALWAYS be people playing it
>>368338>tfw the most populated version of runescape is a monstrosity that's made for people that never actually played old runescapemaybe there's some comfy classic or actual oldscape server somewhere with enough people to trade with
>>368170Unless it is an MMO that gets assfucked by someone like. just for a random, repeated, annoying as fuck example, NCSoft, and no one internal leaks the source before it dies.
>>368736MMOs aren't good anon so my original observation still applies
>>349941Battleswarm: Field of Honorhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1jpa-Wlwds&ab_channel=GamexOnlineNo, none of you guys have heard of this game.
>>349941Dragon's Dogma Online. Capcom shutting down their entire online games division for seemingly no fucking reason out of the blue is one of life's greatest injustices
Dirty Bomb and Battlerite. Dirty Bomb was one of the best fps i ever played, developers ruined it turning it in pay2win model game.Battlerite was one of the best mobas i ever played, developers ruined it by focusing on BR shit and turning the back to teh real game.
>>350966>muh reviewersNobody played this because it was an early DX11 game, making it Vista exclusive at the time. Nobody wanted to downgrade to Vista for a videogame.
>>355941>>355945I never got to play it but it looked so cool as a kid.
>>352241i miss gigantic so much
>>350689fuck this, NS1 shouldn't have died, and shouldnt have added combat. NS2 should have been NS: Source, true to the original. i'm still salty they killed the community by delaying NS2 for so long to build their meme engine.**ns2 was fun, but nowhere near as amazing as ns1 was. proper asym, larger maps, larger playcounts, way better back and forth/comebacks, faster more enjoyable movement, better maps.>>349941ace of spadesquakeworld/qwtf >>351785 right onwolf: enemy territorypre-steam CS (1.3-1.5) - technically not dead if you include cheaters, but the community and legit players are long gone.
The entire afps genre. I don't care about them being huge I wish we had at least a few thousand players I'd be happy but most games are nearly empty with players bases of literally less than 10 people. It fucking baffles me as a fighting game player that afps is even more poverty than fighting games when they're easier to understand and have more casual game modes to play.
I miss her so much bros...
>>349941Mirage arcane warfare. It was so much fun.
>>371938Cassandra in that game was the best and I haven't tried her in the latest game, but I worry they didn't nail her.
>>349941I mean, it kinda deserved to die because that fucking online is a fucking joke, but the game itself was really good
>>350018They went on to make world of warships, if that's any consolation
>>349941Twisted Metal: Black Online
>>349941> Modern Warfare 2 > Black Ops 1/2 > Halo Reach> Gears of War Horde > All of the Transformers games
Hawken on PC. >>361976Came here to post this.
>>362889Every server left at this point os either drowning in their own ego-driven stupor or simply doesn't give any genuine shit. One faction has very loyal individuals who bend over backwards to breathe life into it, only for actual fucking retards to handle their golden goose egg in the worst way possible almost as if intentionally. The other faction wants to be the only ones to control the game, manipulate it and see everyone else irrelevant while feigning to be the good guys. At this point, you can't tell them apart. I respect the people who are trying who actually have some braincells, but people are deadset on a powertrip or don't care at all. It's all going to fall apart. At least the live game died when it did or we would have Jew MTX lootbox shit out the ass as a soulless husk.
>>371938Can't believe they dropped chronicles of the sword for SC4That was so much fucking fun.
I unironically still play Metal Gear Survive
Tremulous - first multiplayer game I played, had good times. Urban Terror too but frankly that game needs to be put out of its misery now more than anything else.
WoWIt was good until the devs turned out to be rapist women haters. Everyone left after learning they oppressed and raped women in the workplace.
>>372095>It was good until the devs turned out to be rapist women haters.Always have been. WoW was never good.
>>352154This game was amazing its first 2 years
World's Adrift. Copycats haven't even come close to replicating the feel of exploring on your own airship that you designed and built from the ground up
>>358829Total is like 15k iirc. Concurrent is 500-700 at peak hours. Mabi KR is a different story though.
>>350473Came to say this.
Remember Lineage II before Kamael were a thing? Good fucking times.
Face of MankindGod awful TTK but it did have a funny aspect of making the combat in the game fall into two categories firing line and chaotic laser / grenade spam.But I liked the game a lot when I played it almost 12 years ago, raiding the prison to free my fellow mercenary dindus is a feeling only a few games can achieve.
>>350028Thanks for the feels fren, the only happy memory I have of being 13
>>354267What about double action boogaloo?
>>358937Lots of people still play this game on emus.
