The internet games from Windows ME are still working. And people are still playing them.
Too bad MS will be shutting don the servers at the end of this month
This is ultimate 60 year old on disability core right here.
My dad would play internet hearts all the time
>>5730378I don't play these games but decisions like these make me feel sad for the old timers who still play these games.
>>5730378>>5731773Don't need your pity. I only played the singleplayer games from MS; Mahjong and Minesweeper. Online is trash.
>>5730378what makes a company say "wow these dead games really need their servers closed"? if nobody is fucking playing them whats the harm keeping them running? 500 kilobytes of ram?
>>5732597One raspberry pi in a back room at Microsoft could serve all the games currently being played.
>>5732602a raspberry pi is probably 10 times as strong as a laptop from 2005 and these games were on servers well before that. i dont even play these shit games, i dont even fucking use windows but they could give me the server software and ill still host these games because it literally doesn't matter
>>5730378is it a good time to change from windows 7 to windows 10? I'm really worried because I hear a lot of files randomly delete with windows 10
>>5730373Germans aren't people.
>>5730373man I miss the graphics on old windows, all the graphics popped out, then looked sleek on vista and 7. Now everything is so flat looking, how did this happen?
>>5732615why not try linux? you dont even have to install them to try them out. i recommend xubuntu or kubuntu. most /vr/ windows games are runnable with a double click once youve installed wine, though i would still suggest you google "game winehq" to view compatibility for games you really want to continue playing as linux is still not a perfect solution
>>5732626XP had that fresh, new millenium hope.10 is jaded and bleak because it knows it all went to shit.
>>5732597hell they can just make a VM and shove it into some server, they own fucking Azure it will cost nothing to them
