Games come and go. Just like what happened with quake, quakeworld, doom, quake team fortress, half-life death match, diablo, diablo II, asheron’s call, everquest, daggerfall,,,, and hundreds of other games.
Remember the good ole days of playing the games you enjoy. One day you will tell your kids of the good times you had.
I still tell my kids about what quake was like in 1997 and 1998. When we used to play diablo II I would tell them stories of what it was like playing the original diablo on dialup.
As for myself, my kids and I used to play l4d / l4d2. Now my grandkids and I play.
It is sad when a game passes from the limelight, but it is just life.
My first exposure to video games was in the early 1980s when a local corner store put a Donkey Kong arcade game in. My buddies and I would collect our spare change, ride our bicycles to the store, buy a coke and put quarters into the Donkey Kong machine until we were broke.
From arcade games I moved to an atari, to nintendo, super nintendo and finally to pc gaming. My very first pc game was command and conquer for DOS. This was before windows 95 had been released.
