    people still play WoW = mind blown

    i mean seriously, think about it. this game has been out since Nov '04. it's april 2013 now and millions of people still play WoW. UNFUKING BELIEVABLE.

    i wonder how much longer it will last? i say 6 more years max.

    At least 15 years. Of course, there won't be ~9 million people playing then, but it'll still be there.

    It came out Nov 04 and not 03.
    And it'll be around as long as people find it entertaining. I find SMB entertaining and still play it. And it got out 85! It's 28 years old!

    Old people go, new people come in. Babies are born every day.

    And some of us are crazy enough to keep playing after 8 years.

    With this many people it could last another decade I reckon.

    As people have mentioned earlier - the only WoW killer is Blizzard them self, if they decide to shut down the servers keeping it up.
    So as long as people pay for it, and Blizzard gets a profit it will stay. So yeah, we still got a loooot of time to play this game, if we choose to.

    On the other hand; when will Blizzard stop making new content for us? Will it be when Titan is released, or will they continue as long as they earn money on it?

    people still play everquest

    They do not die; they do not live. They are outside the cycle. Your gods are not your gods, outsider.

    Refreshing topic and i agree, it is crazy how long this game has gone on, but isn't everquest still going on after 10+ years now? that's pretty crazy too.

    CS 1.6 still being played feels unreal in comparison.

    If that blows your mind - I wouldn´t want to be around you when something actually astonashing happened.

    Its the best game ever made.

    What about soccer then? People play it since over hundred years. It´s gonna die soon!
    No way a game can survive that long. And baseball, basketball, football, hockey, all doomed.

    Damn what a genius this OP is, he beat us by 5 minutes reconning these kinda things.

    I think it also depends on the expansions they are going to release lorewise. Cata was BS and Pandaria is meh. Other MMOS will keep improving their mechanics and QoL features till some will work just as smooth and rewarding as WoW does.

    well it depends on what metrics you use to judge a game

    The game is evolving all the time. It is far, far, FAR from the game that was released in 2004.

    Well, game wise - is it realy that good? Or do we convice ourself it is awesome because we're addicted and have spent so much time in it?
    Compare it to other huge games as Skyrim or Bioshock, is WoW realy that good game wise?

    Just a bunch of questions, I've played the game since '04, and I still do love it. But mostly because I feel somewhat addicted to it (And all the friends I've made troughout the years of playing).

    Whenever people are surprised that WoW is still going, I just smile and link this Wikipedia article.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultima_online

    Ultima Online (UO) is a graphical massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), released on 24 September 1997,[2] by Origin Systems. It was instrumental to the development of the genre, and is still running today.
    Considering its peak was 250,000 subs and it's still active, WoW's peak of roughly 12 million will logically mean the game will keep going on for decades. Not 6 years. Not even 15. Decades.
