For me, im still a huge fan of undertale and its fan content. The fandom is way smaller than it used to be, but it still exists on some smaller groups. I still love everything that comes from this game and its fans (minus the toxic people lol but every fandom has that sadly)

The original Sims, interest in it has pretty much died down. I know of a couple of archive sites but I think most discussion/activity sadly takes place on Facebook groups, ugh.

I've gotten into the original Animal Crossing for GameCube and I wish there would be some active communities for that, it's so fun and charming.

The Castlevania fandom </3 it's because we haven't gotten a new game since 2008 (apart from spinoffs and adaptations of... dubious quality) but still I'm so invested in the lore and characters... Alas

I'm a diehard "Mighty Max" fan since 1996. I'll still talk about it and ply with the toys when I'll be 100.

Oh, there are MANY such cases. I oftentimes don't get into a fandom until after the fandom's died down. I'll be walking up with a game that came out 5 years ago like, "Guys, have you heard of this??"

Examples include Sally Face (which I like, except for when I don't), Smile For Me, Undertale, and Professor Layton. (Though that last one is likely to get a revival with the new game releasing!)

Thats a shame :(( I miss widespread games forums instead of everything being singled down to a few social medias

ARMS. There's still a tightly-knit group of players, but not much in the way in fan art and such. Really hope for a sequel someday soon-ish.

I'm not sure if this is considered "dead" but there's one game i'm interested in called Star Fox. The game looks interesting to me and i thought of giving it a try at some point.

One character i like is from that game and her name is.. Krystal i think? though i think it's fandom is pretty dead so please correct me if i am wrong.

Yeah. Some Sims forums (like Mod The Sims) have TS1 sections but they seem mostly dead. As I understand it, there's a couple of TS1 forums that also function as archives for downloads from defunct sites, but apparently there's some kind of drama so it can be hard to get approved? So weird  :ziped:

I just came back from Japan and MAN did I think I'd get some streetpass tags on my 3DS. I got less than 10 after traveling to multiple high population areas of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto over 2 weeks... I remember the fun days back in the day when I'd get 10 streetpass tags just going to a walk in a mildly populated mall.

I really love the streetpass games (mostly Puzzle Swap and Flower Town). There's something incredibly fun about seeing people's mii and having a little connection with them like that. Not really fond of using play coins for the street pass games as I feel it defeats the purpose, but it definitely seems to be the only way to progress nowadays.

Funny how words can be so open to interpretation.

Magical Starsign! A 2007 DS game by Brownie Brown. It's a sequel to the Japan-only release Magical Vacation. It's such a cute game, but a little too reliant on the DS stylus for me now. The english-speaking fandom has gotten a little bit of a second wind after the creation of the Magical Starsign/Vacation discord and a new wiki, but it's still quite small.

As for games mentioned previously in this thread: I remember enjoying Fran Bow when it came out, I love Smile for Me and got to interview one of the creators recently, and Star Fox: Adventure is one of my guilty pleasures (PUT THAT DOWN!!! YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SCARABS!!!). I also like Undertale, but I think that fandom is far from dead, more just in hibernation until the next Deltarune chapters come out. Oh, and I just popped into a thread about Webkinz Classic, so that should be here too. I love listening to the HORRIBLE songs they make for that game (please listen to Dog on the Front of the Tag)
