I think it's time friends, might as well do it on the anniversary. It'll have been 10 years since MGO launched, over 8 years the site has been up, and 6 years since MGO shut down.

A surprising number of people still check in, but it's clear there's nothing left to discuss. It was nice to have the site around for people to reconnect, but at this point everyone has expectedly moved on.

I'll leave a closure page up with a link to SaveMGO, if anyone has links to discord servers or other communities with ties to MGO I can throw them there as well.

I object. What's the problem? is it the site hosting? I can help out with that in that case. I still visit this place. It should be a haven for all the original gangsters. Don't close it down.

There just isn't really anything to talk about anymore, and nothing to look forward to. We're still getting some posts but we aren't really getting any conversation. If people come back it's only for a day or two, so there's never going to be a resurgence of activity. Most people have moved on and the people who have kept in touch don't talk on the forums.

The site isn't a huge responsibility, but someone does have to maintain it. I still check here nearly daily to clean up spam bots. The site software has to be updated so we don't have a ton of vulnerabilities, and that ends up being quite the chore with the size of our database.

Hosting cost wasn't a big issue, it's just all the little things that add up. The site has to close at some point. I guess I could have left it up for another 10 years, but I think now is as good a time as any. At least this way people might miss it.

It was his immense guilt for destroying MGO2.

I hope I run into some MGO people in RDR2 and TLOU2 on PS4. It's always fun to play vs the community, even though I don't game as much and am probably a terrible shot now but still.

Here's to hoping at least Splinter Cell makes it to PS4 and Ghost of Tsushima is stealth based.

See ya around people.

This is lame. No ones even gonna archive the posts? That's stupid. I still object but fuck you guys I guess you're gonna do whatever you want motherfuckers. I wanna steal this theme to make a similar forum one day. Gotta keep the legacy living on in my head somehow...Can someone hook me up with the html or whatever

I still remember years ago when DS had "Coming Soon" on his PSN comment.
