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?

Yeah, 17 USD isn't so bad. Still, I'm glad I don't have to pay anymore, and I'm actually nearing the time where the permanent account purchase will have saved me money. ;)

Still wouldn't do it again, though; the downside is that you can't vote with your feet and take your money elsewhere. LJ got everything they could out of me, money-wise, so they have no reason to particularly care about what I think of their changes and all that.

(Not that all of the changes are bad, mind you.)

As for the games, I'm sort of curious what they were like now, but it's more out of historical curiosity than anything else, as evidenced by the fact I never cared about them while they were still available.
