    Use sockets for web multi-player?


    If I want to make a web-based multi-player game, should I use socket connections for all communications?

    I'd use them, but what else did you have in mind for using?

    depends on the language, purpose of the game, intended audience.. if the client can make their own app etc!!

    other options could be web site, web services, remoting (C#) / rmi (java) etc
