Age of Empires Online shuts down today

Age of Empires Online shuts down today

Unsurprising as the game faded into obscurity some time ago, but it’s still sad to see it shut down.

As more and more online-only games slowly fizzle and flicker out, I can’t help but feel that this generation of games will have a far poorer archive then the previous. 

Of course, the culture that surrounds and permeates these online games are often just as important as the game itself. While you can possibly replicate servers, how can you replicate the interactive facets of an online game at its height?
