Dead Online Only Games


I saw this recently at my local wally mart, and thought to myself, “You can’t play this game anymore! They shut down the servers.” Wally mart doesn’t care enough to know that you can’t play this game anymore. They should take it off the shelf or mark it down heavily. I would have picked it up for a few bucks just to sit on my shelf. I actually liked Age of Empires Online a lot. Too bad it was online only.

I’m not a fan of online only games, because years later when the company decides its not worth keeping the servers up the game becomes dead and nobody can play it.  Titanfall, Evolve, and the new Star Wars Battlefront are games like this. You won’t be able to come back to them in 10 years if you wanted to revisit them. Maybe I’m the only one who likes the idea of being able to still use what I payed for years later…
