http://www.lockergnome.com/news/2012/04/06/the-future-of-multiplayer-pc-games/ - Being a gamer in the modern age is very different from being one 10 years ago. Gaming is no longer widely perceived as a hobby of the teenager or reclusive nerd. Today, games are overshadowing major Hollywood productions in terms of revenue and each major title release is given the same reception as a highly anticipated blockbuster. When considering what the future might be for multiplayer gaming, it's important to take a look at the past, and see where things have been going. After all, you might be surprised how many old concepts are set to make a comeback in the modern computing world. With MMOs seeing a decline in numbers and paid subscriptions, perhaps the smaller, more community-driven gaming world is beginning to see signs of a second wind.
