Disclaimer: This post is about a game - but it's also about pointy haired decision makers.

I'm not much of a gamer, but I will play compelling games for a bit between doing better things.

However, Mad Max really is an excellent offering, and is the only Mad Max game that was in any way decent. Unfortunately, there will never be a sequel because of reasons involving George Miller and Warner Bros.

The Mad Max game servers are shutting down Oct 31st after 5 years of service. Unfortunately the game requires a server connection to unlock a trophy/achievement which will no longer be possible after Oct 31st. Warner Brothers shows no sign of issuing a patch to remove the online requirements so you will no longer be able to earn the platinum trophy/achievement. Bummer.

This is a great product and it deserves a better send off. They should patch it. People are still buying it 5 years after its release. (I did)

I really wish people that wrote code would maintain it.

Why do people abandon code that is still making them money?

I don't get it. One small patch and they keep their 5 years of users happy, and can keep milking the income from the game for a decade like Nintendo did. Shucks | :-\
