Gaming Fact of the Day

It’s been a while, but we’re going to resurrect the Gaming Fact of the Day. Why? I suppose because it’s fun to look at random gaming facts. So, without further ado, our new Gaming Fact of the Day:


Shortest-Lived Major MMO

MMORPGs are usually designed so players can develop their characters over years. Tabula Rasa, the sci-fi MMORPG from Ultima Online creator Richard Garriott, is one of the exceptions. It was supported by live servers for just 1 year 3 months 26 days before it was finally shut down on 28 February 2009.
