If you're in your twenties, thirties or older, you probably have fond memories of MPlayer -- particularly if you played games like Quake back in the day and you have vivid recollections of running your game through an old-school 56K modem. If that's the case, there's good news -- a company called MPlayer Entertainment is bringing the gaming service back from retro history to present reality.

Back in the day, MPlayer was a free, advertising-supported online community that offered over 100 free games. It's now coming back into a gaming environment that has changed considerably.

The service will now offer video game chat services tailored towards gamers, music enthusiasts and creatives. While it's undoubtedly fascinating than an old and defunct video game service is making a comeback so many years later, what's key here is the role that MPlayer could play in the gaming landscape going forward.
