Everyone knows that, at least on console, other than the huge hits most multiplayer communities dry up pretty quick and become ghost towns. Some multiplayer games are abandoned just a few months after launch. Last night I booted up the old 360 and logged on to Gotham City Imposters, a somewhat obscure title from early 2012, only to find a ton of people still playing. It was shockingly easy to get a game and even more interestingly some people were low level, implying that people might still be buying the game. It was pretty surprising and heartening to see the game was still chugging along.
Have you guys found other relatively obscure games whose multiplayer communities have survived well past their expected expiration date? Any rhyme or reason as to why it happens to some games but not others? God Mode, for example, was a total ghost town just a few month after launch.
