Best article in a long time.

It's amazing this stuff is still being sold. I think the one that stung for me is Shadowbane.

Such an awesome concept with actually impressive balance for how many classes and specs there were, not too mention playable Centaurs! You'd think more fantasy MMO's would have such an awesome race playable.

But of course the performance and bugs were its doom.

It's funny to see Amazon still selling the Tabula Rasa Strategy Guide for $24.99.

I actually liked Tabula Rasa. I always hope that a company would buy the game, take Garriots name off an relaunch it was a F2P. It wasn't THAT bad of a game.

@hami83 I agree, I actually liked TR and would be ecstatic if a F2P game was ever released.

uhm ..... should I?
yes, I think I should:

Hellgate has still got the single player component, I actually just picked it up for said price of $5. worth thinking about if you missed the game when it was fresh (like me). you do remember how to play a single player, don't you?

Shadowbane has got a team working on a "Emulated" server, it just went into test on the 19th so progress is still being progressed, "Emulated" because it's a not a hack.

Earth and Beyond has likewise got emulated servers, so don't count this one down and out if you know a fan who wants to use a legit copy instead of a torrented one.

RF Online went F2P a long time ago, yeah buying that box is dumb because after some disagreements between codemasters and the game's developers the rights reverted back to the developers. still, I fell inclined to point out that the game is still running, more than can be said for the rest.

Hellgate london was an awesome game and the singleplayer still is. So as a singeplayer for $6 it definitely doesn't deserve to be on the list.

@Xan Yea for sure HG:L SP is still worth the $6 and there are sites that have mods for it such as the this one: http://www.hellgateaus.net/forum/

Loved the Tabula Rasa comment. Great article. Hellgate was decent, just too repetitive. Makes for a nice hack and slash session as a single player though.

Fantastic article!

'"Excuse me, but I've heard this is pretty sweet," you should say in all sincerity. "And it teaches children the fundamentals of law enforcement!"'

I'm still chuckling.

Just wanted to make a little note that RF Online isn't actually a dead game, it was sold back and forth to different companies and is now a F2P game. Of course no one did say it was dead just that the 1 penny was more then it should be :D
