Online Gaming Zeitgeist

Okey, it’s finally online, public, and on a more-or-less stable state: the Online Gaming Zeitgeist.

What this site does is gather the number of players online for several first-person shooters games through GameSpy’s stats page and save them to a database. Later, it creates some graphs showing the fluctuation of players from one game to another. It’s something simple I did to learn a bit more of PHP, but I think the end result is cool enough. In one or two years, it’ll be nice to look at it and recall the rise and fall of some games’ online presence.
