    I would love to see an end to certain tasteless ads though.

    why would you want a game to shutdown??? if you dont like something just don't involve yourself with it.

    Also compitition is a good thing it forces the games you do like to try and do better.

    compEtition leads to evolution of one and death of the other who is obsolete.

     

    endless competition leads to endless competition. someone has to lose for someone to win.

     

    see the fallacy ? you're thinking in a single instant not in perspective with time.

    more and more MMORPG are coming out, but are there more and more MMORPG players to play the MMORPGs?

     

    we should ask analysts

    I never want to see a game shut down. Period.

    There are bad games, but even bad games are made by real people and those people have lives and lose their livelihood when these games go under.

    That said, I want Scarlet Blade gone. They defeated my adblocker.

     

    >:D

    Scarlet Blade. Its a ridiculous game. Totally butchered. 

     

    As for people polling on WoW to shut down. That will never happen. If it wasn't for WoW, most of you will be playing Solitaire.

    They'll get another job, or better yet, move them to another project. No need to subsidize crap just to keep people employed.

    WAIT WAIT! Can I change my answer? I chose SWTOR but I think I hate Scarlet Blade more.  Heck can I just choose both?

    I don't want to see any games shut down.  If someone is making money off of people enjoying their game, it's a win/win.  If I don't like it, I won't play it.  Even as distraught as I am over the second iteration of Darkfall, I don't feel the need to wish it would shut down.  I'd like to kick some of the development team in the giblets, but I don't want their game to shut down.

    Because lazy shills don't deserve success.

    You know people's livelyhoods depend on these games right?

     I always look forward to bad games to be shutdown. Your mindset is in the wrong place. If someone creates the worst product imaginable and has ~50 people running it. Do you pay more and more money to keep the employees from losing their jobs?

    What?  Cant's stand the thought of other types of gamers having games that fit their play styles?  I voted none as I believe every type of player deserves a game to call home, whether it's niche or extremely mainstream.  It is my hope that the genre can support having two or more games per niche so we have choice and variety for our preferred play styles.

    That's just it. I think there are tons of people that stick with crap because they are too invested in it like a Dollar Auction.  Only a shutdown can free them from crappy-game purgatory.

    This thread would have been so much better if it was based on hypothetical "what if X game didn't exist" senarios.

    There are many reasons to vote for shutting down some games. If being hater is only explanation you can find, you are probably, last person who should blame others for being close-minded.

     

    Voted for WoW. Not like I wish Blizz to lose money, just really curious what would happen with current MMO scene if WoW disappeared years before it's natural death.

    Why should I care about these games getting shut down? If I dont like the game I wont play it, if everyone else feels the same way, the game gets shut down. If there's enough people playing, I wish they have fun. Who the hell am I to shut down games others are enjoying, and like I said, if no one is enjoying them you'll notice that they get shut down anyway.

    If the game is making a profit and the players are liking it, who are you to say they should be shut down.  If we went with that line of logic, then all of the haters of WoW would justify shutting it down too.  The sheer arrogance of some people in the gaming community is mind boggling:  "I think it's a turd, therefore it IS a turd".

    Had Eve online player steal an in game item I bought for alot of ISK.  The player put stuff in the window and before I clicked trade, he removed it, so thru a glitch he cheated me.  GM's refused to do anything about it because it used in game mechanics.  That is, the GM's support people scamming each other.  I quit the game and ran a campaign on here for awhile against Eve, so much so that I was hurting there business.

    I'd be happy with them being shut down.  Based on the fact they got more subscribers than ever, since I gave up the campaign against them, I don't see them shutting down any time soon.

     

    ==========================
    The game is dead not, this game is good we make it and Romania Tv give it 5 goat heads, this is good rating for game.

    We can get into specific games of course, but this whole "How dare anyone even entertain the possibilty of a game shutting down" hasn't been backed up by anything but phony indignation. Arrogant? Physician, heal thyself.
