Game Worlds that Ended in 2012 (As Foretold by the Ancient Mayans)

It turns out the wonky New Age interpreters of the Mayan calendar were wrong (as usual), and our world didn't end in 2012. We didn't smash into Nibiru, the mirror Earth, or get visited by our alien creator-gods, or get bombarded with cosmic radiation and comets and asteroids the size of Madagascar, or smote by angry deities raining holy judgement from the heavens. Our universe moved quietly into baktun 13.0.0.0.0 just like it was always supposed to, and the world kept spinning on. But this was sadly not the case for a handful of game worlds that got shut down by their developer-gods. Here is our tribute to the fallen MMO worlds of 2012, as prophesied by the crystal-worshipping hippies that misread one scholar's interpretation of the Mayan calendar sometime in the 1970s.
