As per the announcement in news, Livejournal Games are history as of today:

Games Discontinued
We resisted writing “game over for games on LiveJournal,” but yes, on April 9, the Games tab will disappear from the LiveJournal navigation bar, and games – including Sim Hospital, Airport and City Gangs – will no longer be available to play.

It was only a bit more than a year ago that these were introduced. I'm curious, did anyone ever actually play one?

They were.... ok, fun but nothing special. They worked on the micropayments model, get the basics free, but if you want the rest you hand over money.

They wern't worth actually paying for, and the free content got dull quickly.

OK. Mmm, I should've guessed that they were another attempt by LJ to make money, really — not that I'm blaming them, but it's one more reason why I wouldn't have been interested.

I really wish LJ would just focus on being a good journalling/blogging site. That's what it always was and what it (basically) is still good at — why branch out into different areas where you don't have expertise?
