Because its a niche game...or because of the worst reputation around the net ? To be honest, I enjyoed the "niche factor" in 2004. 200 people playing. 200 mature people. Great immersive landscapes with lots of leovely details. Exploring (online) was never so cool. Today, not much is left of this. 1 mio. ppl palying (lol). 12 year olds, using the worst abusive language one can imagine, scriptkiddies, bot users, scammers, etc. etc. etc. A FarCry theme, most towns turned into shopcotainers etc. blablabla etc.
