Has anyone else noticed the dwindling number of games listed at the top of this site. 575 is where the total currently sits. I seem to remember during E3's future gaming converence Bill Murphy made the comment that "mmorpg.com had over 600 games listed on the site" (paraphrased) and I, personally, do remember seeing it peak at around 610 or so. But that also leads me to remember when about a year or so ago (maybe longer actually) the site had only around 400 listed games. As anyone who frequents this, or any video gaming site in general, would know mmo's have become a dime a dozen in recent years.
Now I have no idea why games may have been removed from this site. It could have been due to them shutting down, or maybe it was something that was deemed to not be in the MMORPG genre and was simply removed from the site. Either case it seems that 30-40 games is a pretty steep drop off. Maybe a moderator or someone could chime in as to the reasoning.
So this leads me to ask Is the recent drop off attributed to an inflated market of mmo's that is becoming unsustainable or is it just part of the average business cycle (some games win and others lose)?
