There are only 3 games I've played after 2007 that are peer 2 peer and not localized or international server based. Dota, Demigod and Magicka (First one); Dota was understandable, it was a MOD/Map and had no official support, Demigod was an abomination and a bad game design philosophy led GPG/Stardock to believe they could get away with P2P network and bad net-code, Raknet was just a bad idea from the beginning. Magicka was a good a game by Arrowhead Studios, decent netcode but it still had its shortcomings, I mean sometimes the lag was unbearable.
I for one strongly believe if you don't have a online multiplayer game with localized servers and good net-code, then don't design a game for multiplayer, just stick to single player and stop wasting our times.
