online video game design 

I find it interesting how every FPS game nowadays has a skill-based matchmaking system as the primary or even only way to play the game, and how different the experience is to older generations of games in the same genre that just had big servers where random people joined

Bonus points if the servers are community-administrated so personally involved admins actually ban cheaters without having to rely on dubiously effective automated enforcement systems
