As we reported last week (http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/04/04/gamespy-multiplayer-service-shutting-down-next-month/), online matchmaking client GameSpy will shutdown on May 31. The community at Reddit's /r/Games is compiling a list of games that will be affected, partially affected, or not affected at all. The list is not official by any means, as most publishers have yet to make official comments about the shutdown, and most games have yet to be confirmed one way or another. But it�s still a pretty terrifying list.

Here are just some of the possibly affected games that stood out to me:

Battlefield 1942
Battlefield 2
Battlefield 2142
Battlefield Bad Company 2
Civilization III
Civilization IV
Halo: Combat Evolved

There are many more, which you can find on the full list (http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/22fz75/list_of_games_affected_by_gamespy_shutdown/). As with the upcoming Games for Windows Live shutdown, it's down to individual publishers as to whether they want to update their games with new server technology.

Activision and Capcom said that this will not affect their games, and Bohemia explained that Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and Arma 3 will migrate to Steamworks, while some of its other games will now have a �more limited multiplayer experience.� The Company of Heroes games, which appears on that list as �affected,� actually migrated to Steamworks last year.

A couple of the big question marks here are 2K (Borderlands) and Electronic Arts. These publishers (and others) have yet to release official statements. Until they do, the fate of these games remains uncertain.

So if there are any games in this list that you still play regularly online, I'd suggest you get in as much play time as possible before 31st of May. I admit, a vast majority of these games I don't play... but I do have a fondness for Saints Row 2. Guess I'll fire that up one more time...

theres a lot of great games on that list that no one should expect to still be playable online.

some also affecting DRM servers, so maybe breaking new installs
