VIA A MODIFICATION TO THE TYPING OF THE DEAD: OVERKILL, PLAYERS WILL BE ABLE TO REMEMBER YAHOO! ANSWERS, THAT WILL FALL INTO FORGETTING
In recent days, it was announced that Yahoo! will shut down your Yahoo! Answers. Thanks to this medium, many Internet users were able to solve their doubts about countless topics.
All because they asked the question, and one or more people answered them. But with the passage of time this platform became obsolete, and many stopped visiting it. It was more practical to turn to Reddit, YouTube or social networks.
TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE TYPING OF THE DEAD: OVERKILL
It could well be said that part of the debacle was also due to the fall in popularity of Yahoo! Worldwide. So on May 4, history will pass.
However, there are those who want a memory of this service to remain. This is why they found a good way to do it and in a very ingenious way. That was through The Typing of the Dead: Overkill for PC, where it is possible to add phrases by the same users.
In order to do this, the Steam Workshop tools are used. A group of fans decided to gather what they considered the most representative and classic questions on Yahoo! Answers.
So they created their own dictionary, and added it to this Modern Dream and Sega title. Maybe the only bad thing is that everything is in English. So all the content that was in Spanish could not be remembered through this video game.
YAHOO! IMMORTALIZED ANSWERS IN A ZOMBIES GAME
Of course, unless one or more Spanish-language players dare to do something similar. But so far no one has said they intend to do so. Is there a way to preserve some of the content on Yahoo! Answers?
Perhaps through Archive.org, which keeps track of various pages and websites. But it does not always store everything, and the volume of information accumulated from this service must be quite large.
Without a doubt, it is opportune that The Typing of the Dead: Overkill has the option to add modifications to it. At least that way you will be able to remember yourself on this site.
Although it may not be the only game that remembers it. Maybe some developers decide to add some reference to this service. But that only time will tell. If they happen to have content on that site, they have until June 30 to download it. After that, goodbye.
