As a historian, game preservationist, and general MMORPG geek, it does my heart good to see players do their best to restore and operate titles that were kicked to the curb by studios years ago. There are so many rogue servers out there, from Star Wars Galaxies to Free Realms to The Sims Online to Warhammer Online.
But that isn’t to say that every cancelled MMO is represented in the emulator community –at least, not yet. Several of our most beloved online titles remain in the dark, surrendering their hold on our memories as days pass by. There’s always hope that someone will start up a project for these games, of course.
Which of these cancelled MMOs that haven’t yet received a rogue server revival deserve one? What game would you like to see brought back in the hands of players?
