It may/may not still be played. I haven't in a while. But if you read the discussion page...

It seems to me like people are just putting them there to advertise those wads. I wouldn't mind the information being in the articles about the wads, but I really don't think they belong in the Gametypes section. That section should be limited to gametypes supported by SRB2, not these "invented gametypes". -FuriousFox

It's not "free advertising" as much as a history of what people made up to do in SRB2. -Mystic 22:49, 27 March 2007 (PDT)
