    Wait, how did the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360 used gamespy?

    Oh, it's the publishers that were using gamespy for their multiplayer.

    My first multiplayer games were through Gamespy playing OFP in 2002, Bohemia Interactive still use them for the server browser now. They're switching over to Steam, for ArmA3 at least.

    *sigh* The passing of another era. Many a happy hour was spent playing Battlefield 1942 and Medal of Honor courtesy of GameSpy. Thanks guys!

    I never allowed it to install.

    Two reasons. First I don't game online Second, I wasn't sure if it was malware or not.....:oops:

    The "Spy" in the title was a big turn off.

    You know, as much as I remember this I kept forgetting it still existed today. Well I guess for not much longer.

    You will be missed.
