The era is long over. Digital marketing has gone the way of MMOs--devalued by stats and metrics. There's only room left for volunteer-powered sites, like this one.
But here's the flip side: while gaming websites are universally marginalized by advertisers, game publishers still rely on them as the largest sources of free information and organic traffic.
What's the result? Gaming websites who rely on profits close, which tolls the death knell for the games they support--Crysis, NWN, etc.
Sad, but reality. We need a toast to sites supported by people who work for free.
How do you classify the schmucks who don't just work for free, but drop thousands to maintain the site?
Heh. A rare breed of crazy.
Does this mean UO might get a couple of those players whose games are going offline?
Since I see that some Battlefield games are going down I hope this means I won't ever again have to see The Battlefield 3 Ultimate Shortcut Bundle for $39.99 in the results when I search for Ultima Online at the Origin store.
I'm seeing the glass as half full here.
Absolutely, old games with free multiplayer shutting down will of course lead to those players suddenly wanting to play a 16 year old sub-based MMO.
I'm guessing it's a good thing Broadsword took an interest in UO otherwise we could have easily been in the list.
I don't believe UO was on gamespy servers
ah. guess I didn't understand that part of it.
