    But shouldn't they make a package of sorts so that people can host their own servers? Then if you want to host a retro event, you can

    Quite sad about Crysis 1. Quite fun to play and the German community still keeps that gaming relatively thriving.

    Am I correct in assuming that it won't affect single player at all?

    And what's the situation with GFWL?

    This is really sad. Do you know how many of those games still have thriving online communities? According to the comments on the article there are user-made alternatives to Gamespy, but how many people who are playing these games right now will bother with the schlep of setting them up in the first place?

    I really hope game developers and publishers learn their lesson from this. Don't rely on third-party applications for your multiplayer.

    What's good about games that people are still playing losing their multiplayer functionality?
