Suggested January 2024 17 Of The Best Linux Games In 2023

There have been many false dawns for Linux gaming, but in recent years things have been improving unabated. The launch of the Proton compatibility layer meant that thousands of DirectX-only games can now be translated to Vulkan and therefore work on Linux, while new Linux-compatible games continue to be released as well.

If you want to play Windows-only games on Linux, see our guide on how to set up Proton and Steam Play. If, however, you just want to check out all the best native Linux games in 2023 you can play, then read on below.

1. Unturned

Voxel-based games are definitely not for everyone, but if you can wrap your head around the Lego-like aesthetic then there’s a very compelling survival game to enjoy here. And best of all, it’s free, and certainly of a higher quality than you’d expect from your average free Linux game.

In Unturned, you (and potentially a whole bunch of friends) are trying to survive the zombie-infested apocalypse. You seek out weapons amidst the ruins, gather supplies, and keep an eye on depleting bars like food, radiation and water levels. The map-maker allows for pretty much endless level variety and new game modes that include things like paintball and (of course) battle royale.

2. Friday Night Funkin’

It’s time to give a little love to the excellent indie scene over at chúng tôi which is a veritable treasure trove of free games. Some eventually make it over to Steam, but others become cult classics for the Itch community.

Friday Night Funkin’ is one of the current big hitters on the Itch scene. It’s a rhythm-action game in the style of PS1 classic Parappa the Rapper, with a cheeky sense of humour, catchy tunes, and a vicious retired rockstar dad who’s trying to kill you as you try to kiss your girlfriend.

It’s super-simple to play, but very addictive… and did we mention that it’s free?

3. Valheim

The viking-themed survival game was all the talk of 2023, Valheim may still be in early access, but it’s already an undisputed success. In a lot of ways, Valheim does much the same things as every other survival game, but it’s co-op focus (allowing for up to 10 people to play together) and its pretty PS2-style visuals make its randomly generated worlds a joy to explore.

The game runs perfectly on Linux, and is receiving a steady stream of updates as it slowly builds up towards a full release. Admittedly, its story and exploration aspects aren’t fully fleshed out yet, but you can already go through its main quest of hunting down several legendary beasts as you try to maintain order in the monster-beset purgatory of Valheim.

4. RimWorld

Not only can you play this sci-fi colony simulator on Linux, but you can play it on a low-end Linux (probably even without a dedicated GPU, depending on how good your iGPU is).

Don’t let the simple visuals fool you, RimWorld is an incredibly deep game that was worked in Early Access for years before maturing to full release. It sees you manage a colony of people trying to survive on an Earth-like planet populated by other tribes.

Not only do you go through the basics of farming, building up your settlement and raiding others, but each in-game character has their own complex personality, relationships and needs, and it’s fascinating watching your little people chat, play with and even marry each other while you deal with delegating tasks around your colony.

5. Factorio

Ok, now let’s strip the human element out of RimWorld and replace it with conveyor belts, production chains and processing plants. In the same way that RimWorld lets you enjoy the little human stories as you manage the bigger picture, Factorio is about creating complex production chains then watching it all become automated thanks to your work.

It’s vast and complex, and is all about gathering resources then processing them in the most efficient way possible. There’s an added wildcard element too, as the planet’s people won’t be too happy with your exploitation of it and will rise up against you.

Factorio is a joy to play alone, but can also be enjoyed as an online co-op game.

6. A Short Hike

Some games are just designed to make you feel good, and while we’ve got plenty of deep and challenging titles on this list, we thought it’d be nice to start things off with this indie gem.

A Short Hike sees you wandering, flying and base-jumping around a beautiful national park as an anthropomorphic hawk. You explore the park at your own pace, traverse mountains, chat to other hikers, and generally have a wonderful time bounding around the bright and cheery landscape. It’s extremely relaxing, while also having some breathtaking moments as you can freely soar around the park on your birdy wings.

At a time when many of us want to escape into something that helps us relax and forget about the woes of reality, A Short Hike is the perfect getaway.

7. Crusader Kings 3

It’s rare that a hotly anticipated new game runs on Linux straight out of the digital box, but medieval dynasty simulator Crusader Kings 3 does just that. Maybe that’s because it’s a game lacking in graphical complexity, as you hover over a map of the medieval world and look at moody kings and queens while plotting your next move in your rise to power.

The game puts you in control of a noble or royal bloodline – arranging marriages, assassinating rivals and marching armies as you attempt to expand your family’s influence and keep your bloodline going. It’s the best dynamic story generator around.

8. Total War: Warhammer 2

When people dream up which video-game franchise would match up well with movies, board games or other IPs, the combo of Total War with Warhammer would surely rank high on many lists. A few years ago, this dream was realized, and the Total War: Warhammer bandwagon has plowed on unopposed ever since.

Total War: Warhammer 2 stacks on top of the original game if you own it, letting you combine all the factions from both games into one super-campaign. Each faction feels completely unique to play, and watching thousands-strong armies of Skaven, Undead, Lizardmen, Chaos and the other grimdark factions go at it is a sight to behold.

Several other Total War games, like Three Kingdoms and Attila, are also available on Linux.

9. Desperados 3

Another new release that supported Linux from the get-go, Desperados 3 is a relentlessly old-school real-time tactics game in the vein of Commandos (or of course the older Desperados games). It’s tough, tactical, and will have your finger permanently hovering over the quick-save button as you try to execute your plans to perfection.

But Desperados 3 (made by the devs behind the excellent Shadow Tactics) modernizes the formula, too. Showdown mode lets you pause and slow the game down to line up moves by your ragtag crew of vagabonds, and you can even play with a gamepad should you want to kick back on your couch. It’s still a tough old game at heart, but made more palatable for modern gamers.

10. Dying Light: Enhanced Edition

Probably the best zombie game that no one’s really talking about (but millions of people are playing), Dying Light has been around for a few years but is still top of the pile thanks to its frantic zombie hordes and excellent parkour mechanics. The Enhanced Edition bundles together a few years worth of DLC, including the excellent expansion, The Following.

Dying Light chucks you into an open-world city destroyed by a zombie pandemic, as you try to help out the enclaves of humanity that still live there. You refine your character with skills, leap between rooftops and chop up zombies with crafted weapons.

It doubles as one of the best co-op experiences out there, too, as up to three friends can dash around the city with you (complete with new challenges and competitive modes like races).

11. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

Civilization VI has the same stone-age-to-space-age turn-based formula as its predecessors, but adds neat new ideas like de-stacked cities, combined arms units, and (in the DLC) climate change, golden ages and dark ages. Some say it lacks the depth of previous entries, but now that all the major expansion packs are out, it’s a worthy addition to Sid Meier’s legendary series.

12. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Adding naval combat to the mix, Deadfire continues with the rich storytelling and excellent writing of its predecessor while building on those beautiful graphics and hand-painted backgrounds of the original game. This is a deep and unquestionably hardcore RPG that may cause some to bounce off it, but those who take to it will be absorbed in its world for months.

13. Slay the Spire

Still in early access, but already one of the best games of the year, Slay the Spire is a deck-building card game that’s embellished by a vibrant visual style and rogue-like mechanics that’ll leave you coming back for more after each infuriating (but probably deserved) death.

14. Dead Cells

This one deserves highlighting as the combat-platformer of the year. With its rogue-lite structure, Dead Cells throws you into a dark (yet gorgeously colored) world where you slash and dodge your way through procedurally-generated levels. It’s a bit like a 2D Dark Souls, if Dark Souls were saturated in vibrant neon colors.

Dead Cells can be merciless, but its precise and responsive controls ensure that you only ever have yourself to blame for failure, and its upgrades system that carries over between runs ensures that you always have some sense of progress. Dead Cells is a zenith of pixel-game graphics, animations and mechanics, a timely reminder of just how much can be achieved without the excesses of 3D graphics.

15. Team Fortress 2

Everyone thought Valve was crazy to turn Team Fortress from a Half-life style realistic(ish) online shooter to a bold and bouncy online shooter in 2007. But it worked, and incredibly well, too.

The bread-and-butter of Team Fortress 2 are classic team-based modes, like Capture the Flag, Control Points, and the excellent Payload, where one team needs to escort a cart across a level (sound familiar Overwatch fans?). You pick one of several distinct classes, specializing in either offense, defense or support, and dive into one of its many meticulously-designed vibrant maps.

It’s one of the best influential online shooters of all time, and it’s completely free these days unless you fancy splashing out on skins and other sillies.

16. Dota 2

Another Valve stalwart, Dota 2 is a free-to-play MOBA phenomenon, rubbing shoulders with League of Legends as the most popular game of its kind. Fun fact: the original Dota is in fact a mod for the RTS classic Warcraft III.

So what makes Dota 2 special? It’s actually a little deeper than League of Legends in some ways (though I’m sure LoL fans will disagree). You can pick from one of over 100 heroes to take into battle, fighting alongside your team and your army of minions to push those lanes and destroy the other team’s base. Units range from healing support types to charging, head-down attackers. Whatever your play style, there will be one in there to suit you.

Dota 2 has a few interesting features as well, such as the option to eat up your own minions in exchange for gold and numerous ways of kitting out and upgrading your character. Be warned: Dota 2 isn’t for the faint-hearted.

17. Open-Source Games

As an open-source platform itself, it’s only right that Linux is home to plenty of great free open-source games as well. There’s Brutal Doom for example – a beefed-up version of ZDoom, the open-source port of Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom and Master Levels. It features extra animations, gore, and weapons, as well as redesigned maps, modernized controls and UIs.

OpenRA lets you play Westwood strategy games like Red Alert, Tiberian Dawn and Dune 2000 online in high resolutions. There’s 0 AD – the seemingly endless project to make an Age-of-Empires strategy game, not to mention the brilliant Dark Mod, which is a Thief-style game in the Doom 3 engine with hundreds of brilliant player-created levels.

Other than these free Linux games, you can also install DosBox to play old DOS games on Linux. Alternatively, you can also play Windows or Android games on Linux.

Retro Style Games In 2023: The Best Pixel Games For Android

Those most of the 80s kids out there, the earliest memories of gaming go back to the days of Nintendo and Atari. It is on these retro consoles where the pixelated characters such as Super Mario and Double Dragon brought tremendous joy and excitement to us.

Over the years, the gaming industry has experienced a rocketing progress and we’ve come a long way from playing humble pixel games to high-graphic titles in all the genres. However, there is still something truly special about the old times, which is why despite owning high-powered mobile devices that are capable of explosive performance, we still come back to Pixel-style games.

8 Best offline multiplayer games for Android

The idea of bringing back 8-Bit and 16-Bit retro style gaming may have been started by games like Minecraft, but the craze has definitely caught on. Thanks to their sheer popularity, here are some of the best Pixel games available on the Google Play Store that have been tried and tested to be insanely addictive.

Best Pixel games for Android

In a post PlayStation era when retro games seemed like a dying concept, this open-world RPG changed the way games were played altogether. Now that Minecraft has been made available to mobile devices, it qualified easily as one of the best pixel style games out there.

The game gives you the ability to go about in a massively infinite world surviving, exploring, and building things from scratch. From playing alone to joining up with your crew across different platforms, Minecraft does not have a particular mission line for you, and that’s what makes it so relaxingly enjoyable.

There’s a lot more that goes into professional track racing, and with Grand Prix Story 2, you become the guiding hand of the man behind the wheel. This RPG simulation game puts you in control of your very own race team, and it’s your life’s work to become number one.

Start off by building your own vehicles from the ground up and customizing/upgrading each and every part bit by bit as you progress. With different tracks, you need to employ different strategies and make sure that you hit that nitro boost at the right time to race ahead of the competition and leave them in the dust.

PlayerUnknown’s Battleground or PUBG as you may know it has already conquered the mobile world with its intriguing gameplay and multiplayer capabilities. Now you get the same enthralling action but with less battery-hogging graphics in the pixelated world of Pixel Gun 3D.

Far from a retro game, this modern shooter game puts you on the face of a block world where everyone is out to get you and become the lone survivor. With the ability to play with up to 8 friends in a single game, break into buildings to find high-powered weapons from rifles to lightsabres, all while chatting with your team in real time.

10 Most popular PC games you can play on Android today

With 60 Million+ subscribers, Felix Kjellberg is probably the most famous YouTuber out there, and most of us know him by PewDiePie. With this particular game, you get to live out as the YouTube himself and play this awkwardly amazing platformer that is designed completely in retro style.

Your goal is to run through the different platformer scenarios collecting BROCOINS (coins for bros, get it?) which allow you to unlock different characters like other YouTubers such as JackSepticEye, Marzia, Markiplier and more, along with real voice acting and epic boss fights that keep the repetitive game refreshing each time you play it.

The very foundation of the success that SQUARE ENIX Studios enjoys today is based on the FINAL FANTASY series, and thanks to popular demand, the entire lineup has been brought to the Android platform. With a bunch of main characters to select from that you play as the protagonist, the FINAL FANTASY series is a collection of drama, fantastic storyline and more.

Designed to be a detailed saga of a mystic land far away, you get a mix of magic, pixelated style action and plenty of brawls, all packed into one. This RPG (role-playing game) has defined the genre for decades, and now you get to enjoy it on the go with your Android device.

Answering the age-old question of why the chicken crossed the road, Crossy Road is an epic take at what makes endless platformers so addictive. Packed with a simple gameplay where the goal is to literally just cross the street and get over to the other end, the seamless user interface is what makes it so much fun.

As you cross the streets carefully while keeping an eye out for incoming traffic, unlock and collect over 150 different retro-style characters. The game is among the few good ones available on the big screen with Android TV and is surely worth a try.

The entire Tycoon genre of games goes a long way back, and the RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic can be easily credited as Atari’s best post-retro era games. Putting you in the seat of power to create your very own theme park, this simulation game is like no other, especially if you’re in the mood for some nostalgia.

Combining the elements of the classic ones for the mobile version, RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic comes with a highly customizable landscape where you can build up massive rollercoasters, make sure your guests have amenities such as food stalls and restrooms to keep them chirped up, and so much more to run a successful virtual amusement park.

Paying homage to the 8-Bit and 16-Bit games that most of us grew up enjoying, Super Phantom Cat is another jewel in the crown of endless platformer games. You’re put in the role of Chemist White as you make your way through the perilous Phantom World jumping over obstacles and making your way through.

Not just one, but multiple generations of gamers have grown up enjoying the lighting speed running ability and joyfulness of Sonic the Hedgehog. SEGA is back to take you down the memory lane with the all-time classic game that was one of the founding pillars of the platformer game genre.

Despite being decades old, Sonic the Hedgehog™ Classic still stands neck to neck with the best Android games, offering an intuitive control system with a crisp 60FPS for unmatched smoothness. From the vermin’ ability to boost forward, jump and climb across the levels, unlock Sonic’s friends such as Knuckles, Tails, and others and use their unique abilities.

The entire reason why Pokémon Go became such as viral sensation is the fact that nostalgic gamers remembered how much they enjoy catching all those mystic creatures on their Game Boy. With the release of Pokémon Quest, Nintendo is taking it one step further with the same old fun of entertainment of RPG’s but with a twist.

Taking shape in the form of modern pixelated style games, Pokémon Quest drops you off on the Tumblecube island packed with your favorite Pokémon, all of which are in cuboid form. It’s time to go around the island with your companions, find wild creatures and recruit them into your crew while keeping an eye out for dangers that lurk in the shadows.

While the Google Play Store has been able to encompass most genres of gaming, there are only a handful of sandbox simulation games, and this one is among the coolest pixel-style offerings out there. Play God and bring your very own creations to life in a massive simulation where you control everything from the environment to the creatures.

With more than 170 different elements to play around with, you can build massive worlds by simply selecting elements such as dinosaurs, volcanic mountains, massive Megalodon sharks and so much more. You can even create your very own games within the Sandbox Evolution and built your very own civilization of pop culture characters.

Remember the old days of Farmville where you distant Facebook friends kept sending you unwanted livestock and harvested your fields for you? Tiny Pixel Farm is based on a similar concept of giving you the control of your very own farm, but this time around, your world is pixelated and does not require you to be on a social media website.

You inherited a patch of land from your grandfather which has not been irrigational in a long time, but it is up to you to change that. From turning things around for the resident cattle to looking after your property and the guests who come over for a country trip, the simplicity of an otherwise complicated game style makes Tiny Pixel Farm so good.

Play for your very own team among the 32 participants who made it to the Brazil World Cup in 2023. Gather around the best of your squad and gear them up for the Pixel World Cup to hold your head high with different weather conditions and even stadiums that you can pick yourself.

You start off as Dan, but can later unlock more characters like Josie and Barry Steakfries as you push through Story Modes, Endless Survival, and the Battle Mode. As you walk through the game fighting epic bosses, unlock special costumes to power up your character and keep up with the Daily Events for more specials.

Best Apple Tv Games In 2023

Furthermore, while you can play a few web browser games on Apple TV, I’ve curated the list based purely on games available on the official App Store. Without further ado, let’s dive into the list!

1. Evoland 2 – Editor’s choice

Evoland 2 is a gamer’s paradise – there’s no question about it. Think of it as a tribute to all the classic games you’ve played before. In fact, there are so many parts to explore about the game that you’re sure to take over 20 hours to complete the game in its entirety.

Unfortunately, the control scheme of the game isn’t very friendly to beginners.

Price: $4.99


2. Crossy Road – For wholesome family fun

I’m sure you’ve either heard of or played Crossy Road earlier. This game is one of the best casual and family-friendly games out there. In addition, it’s also one of the best Apple TV games.

The larger screen on the Apple TV also makes the game feel bigger in size and perspective. You can now see more of the in-game screen and have a better view of the oncoming cars. That doesn’t mean that your job of crossing the road gets any easier though.

Keep progressing through the game to unlock more difficult challenges and unique characters. It’s an absurd world in Crossy Road, and you’re going to love it!

However, the game’s pace in the later stages can be quite difficult.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $0.99)


3. PAC-MAN 256 – Takes you back to the 1980s

We all know how influential PAC-MAN has been in the world of gaming. It was and still is the quintessential arcade game for plenty of gamers. With PAC-MAN 256, you get an endless arcade game that caters to the whims of the modern era.

This time, things are slightly different. PAC-MAN has over 15 different powers that you can gain and use against the pesky Ghosts. Moreover, if you can attain a combo of 256 in-game, you’re going to receive a special prize.

On a side note, you know that a game is going to be good if it’s been developed by the creators of the amazing Crossy Road!

The grinding mechanics in the game for attaining rewards needs to be reworked, however. It takes far too long to receive an appropriate number of coins.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $0.99)


4. Just Dance Now – For all the social people

If you’re at a party and want to grab everyone’s attention, what better way than to start dancing and moving to the beats? With Just Dance Now, you can turn the groove and the beats into a game where everyone can join in.

The game features over 500 songs and choreographies for you to go through. This includes classics like 24K Magic by Bruno Mars and Bad Liar by Selena Gomez, among others. The best part? There’s no limit to the number of people who can join in. Whether it’s 10 people or 100, everyone can join. Finally, if you need your dance playlist to make a mark, you can create that too!

Unfortunately, the coin system in the game is quite flawed and complex for a game of this nature.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $2.99)


5. Alto’s Adventure – Takes you to zen mode

There are very few visually appealing games that combine all of their elements and take you on a relaxing journey. Alto’s Adventure is one of them.

The game can be deceptively difficult at times. However, your snowboarding journey across hundreds of mountains will be filled with intrigue and relaxation.

Some people have complained about the wingsuit mechanics of the game, though.

Price: $4.99


6. Riptide GP: Renegade – A unique take on racing games

With Riptide GP: Renegade, all your previous notions on racing games are thrown out the window! Racing games are usually of two types. Firstly, you get the arcade racing games that don’t care much for simulation elements. Secondly, there are simulation racing games whose charm lies in the depth of gameplay.

This game features hydrojet racing, where you and your friends battle it out on watery tracks, jumping over waterfalls and performing stunts. It has a good story too, with your character vying for redemption as they’re kicked out of the Riptide GP League.

It has some serious levels of customizations for both player and the hydrojet, allowing you to put your spin on the game. Moreover, the online component of the game is also worth a try.

The game’s graphics look a bit dated by today’s standards.

Price: $2.99


7. Modern Combat 5: Blackout – For fans of brutal shooting games

The Modern Combat series has been one of the very best, in terms of mobile shooting games. However, with Modern Combat 5: Blackout on the larger screen of the Apple TV, you have an AAA-level shooter on your hands.

This game has something for everyone, from a meaty single-player campaign that features an intense story and fast-paced action to a battle royale and other multiplayer modes. Moreover, there are over 11 classes for you to choose and customize from, leading to a truly personal touch on the gameplay.

In addition, there are limited-time events that provide excellent rewards if you can succeed in completing the challenges. Overall, as a shooting game on the Apple TV, you can’t go wrong with this game.

That said, the energy bar mechanics of the game needs to be reworked though. It runs out far too fast.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $1.99)


8. Spaceteam – Hilarious co-op game

If you’re looking for Apple TV multiplayer games, I doubt that it’ll get any better than Spaceteam. This isn’t your usual co-op game.

Firstly, most of the commands in the game are satirical and sound absurd. Secondly, when your panel is filled with random buttons, and you have to coordinate with your friends to push the buttons at the right time, you’ll realize how random the situation can be!

Moreover, the instructions are time-sensitive. This adds a level of challenge to the game as well. The only issue with the game is that it tends to crash.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $2.99)


9. Real Racing 3 – A racing simulator for enthusiasts

Real Racing 3 is the type of game you want if you’re looking for a racing game that provides a challenge. The game features a high level of simulation that you’ll be hard-pressed to find in most mobile games.

In addition, there are different race modes, including Formula 1 racing. You can select from a range of real cars from manufacturers like Audi and Bugatti. Furthermore, the visuals are simply excellent. When you boot up this game on Apple TV, you can see how gorgeous the game truly looks.

The multiplayer modes are something to look out for as well. You can race with up to 8 players worldwide, in cross-platform, without any hassle.

The only issue with the game is that it has plenty of microtransactions.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $1.99)


If you haven’t played INSIDE yet, you should get on it right away. This game is a beautiful, haunting journey into the depths of human consciousness and society.

The game combines elements of puzzles with platforming into an aesthetic that will catch you off guard. Regardless, you’ll get hooked on it almost instantaneously. There are plenty of metaphors to decipher in this game, from that of human nature to the socioeconomic status prevalent today.

If you want a game that will hook you in with its premise and keep your interest through puzzles, metaphors, and analogies, try INSIDE.

Unfortunately, the game’s campaign is quite short. Many players, myself included, would’ve liked a longer solo campaign.

Price: Free (In-app purchases start at $6.99)


Wrapping it up!

With Apple TV presenting greater gaming opportunities through Apple Arcade, I’m pretty sure there are better games on their way for consumers. So, what did you think of my list of the best Apple TV games? Have you tried any of these games for yourself? If yes, which one did you try, and what did you like/dislike about it?

17 Technologies That Died In 2023

The circle of life applies as much to technology as it does to living things, and so every year brings a wave of old products and failed ideas that make way for newer and better ones.

#1: AOL Instant Messenger

Once a fixture of early-aughts dorm rooms, AOL Instant Messenger logged off this month, taking with it a rich history of away messages, buddy lists, and cheery blooping noises. Executives blamed AIM’s demise on a “cultural shift” toward social networks like Facebook, and modern messaging services like WhatsApp, but one could also argue that AOL blew its own opportunity to be part of that revolution. In any case, AIM’s fate was sealed years ago. At least now we can properly mourn.

Also worth noting: On the same day that AIM died, AOL took down CompuServe’s forums.

#2: Windows Vista

One of Microsoft’s most maligned Windows versions reached the end of its 10-year lifespan on April 11. The software that gave us User Account Control and several obnoxious new DRM mechanisms is no longer receiving security updates, meaning that anyone who still clings to Vista for whatever reason is exposing themselves to unpatched vulnerabilities. Next up on Microsoft’s death list: Windows 7, whose extended support ends in January 2023.

#3: Windows 10 Mobile

Mark Hachman

Microsoft’s mobile platform received a dishonorable discharge in October, when VP of operating systems Joe Belfiore told Twitter followers not to expect new features or hardware. Windows 10 Mobile was never able to achieve a virtuous cycle of users and app developers; even Belfiore said he’d moved onto Android for its superior hardware and software. There’s talk of Microsoft taking another crack at mobile again through some unified, modular version of Windows, but Windows 10 Mobile as we know it is dead.

#4: iPod Nano and Shuffle

Three years after killing the iPod Classic, Apple culled the iPod Nano and iPad Shuffle from its device lineup in July. The iPod Touch is now the only iPod left in the lineup, and even that’s more of a multipurpose entertainment device than a standalone media player. With Apple out of the game, the cheap MP3 player business now belongs to a slew of no-name brands like Hotechs and WiWoo.

#5: CrashPlan for consumers

#6: Amazon Underground

After two years of giving away free Android apps and in-game content, Amazon gave up on its Underground program over the summer. Although Amazon continues to operate its own Android app store, which is featured on Fire tablets and Fire TV streamers, the company appears to be deemphasizing the store as an alternative to Google Play on Android phones. Without the lure of free stuff, and with Amazon’s own apps now readily available through the Google Play Store, users have little need for an external source of apps.

#7: Microsoft Kinect


#8: Groove Music Pass

Yet another product put out to pasture by Microsoft this year, Groove Music Pass will cease to function on December 31. It marks an official end to years of streaming music struggles at Microsoft, first with Zune Music Pass, which became Xbox Music Pass, which finally became Groove Music Pass in 2023. Users never had much reason to opt for these services over a more established alternative like Spotify, and as Microsoft focuses more on productivity than entertainment, Groove’s continued existence no longer makes sense. At least current Groove users are getting a 60-day Spotify trial and a Spotify migration tool in exchange for sticking it out.

#9: Google Talk

#10: Jawbone


#11: Seeso

Jared Newman / TechHive

Billed as a streaming service for comedy geeks, Seeso provided current episodes of late-night NBC programming, a back catalog of oddball comedy shows, and—most importantly—a steady stream of original series. It seemed like a bold bet by NBCUniversal, especially given its $4 per month asking price and lack of commercials, but unfortunately it didn’t get much time to thrive. NBC shut it down less than two years after launch, and while some Seeso originals such as Harmonquest and My Brother, My Brother, and Me landed at other services, others simply ceased to exist.

#12: Delicious


#13: Amazon’s unlimited storage

Jared Newman / PCWorld

Amazon didn’t give much of an explanation when it killed off unlimited Cloud Drive storage this year. But like other cloud storage providers that have abandoned their unlimited plans—Microsoft, Mozy, and Bitcasa among them—Amazon presumably didn’t want to shoulder the burden of storage hogs anymore. In June, the company started charging $60 per terabyte, and gave users 60 days to either pay the toll or take their data elsewhere. Not that many options are left, as providers have increasingly realized that unlimited storage is easy to market, but nearly impossible to sustain.

#14: Ubuntu on phones


Canonical’s attempt at smartphone/PC convergence met its end in April, as the company behind Ubuntu scrapped the Unity interface that was meant to run on both phones and Linux PCs. Next year, Canonical will revert to the Gnome shell that had been the default until six years ago, while turning to cloud and Internet of Things applications as its main focus beyond the desktop. It’s a temporary step backwards for the long-running Linux distro, but probably a net positive for users. And it means, in some miniscule way, that 2023 will be the year of the Linux desktop.

#15: Net neutrality

As expected ever since Ajit Pai took helm of the Federal Communications Commission in January, the FCC voted in December to dismantle the rules that require internet providers to treat all traffic fairly. The vote reverses a major policy shift enacted under former chairman Tom Wheeler, but it’s also marks the first time the FCC has walked away from any kind of net neutrality enforcement whatsoever. This steers the internet into uncharted territory, in which providers are free to set up paid fast lanes for well-funded internet services, reduce transparency, and use punitive data caps to prioritize their own services.

#16: The Copyright Alert System #17: Juicero


Let’s end this list on a cleansing note: This year, the market decidedly rejected the notion of a $700 connected juice machine that depends on proprietary, $7-and-up juice packets. Juicero was already struggling in January, when it slashed prices and replaced its founding CEO. An April exposé by Bloomberg likely sealed the startup’s fate, demonstrating how hand-squeezing the packets was just as effective at extracting the nectar inside. Juicero shut down less than six months later. At least folks who bought the pricey hardware were able to get refunds.
