I wouldn’t say “dying” exactly, as the few that are still running with a decent player base (DCUO, WOW, ESO, FFXIV) and a decent dev team behind still make an okay amount.

After this website came out, this was the only source I needed! But now not so much, everything is late. Obviously its not like the… Read more »
