Right now there are a lot of older mmorogs still up and running. Part of me celebrates that. I like the idea that I can always go home.
But I have to believe that game makers take these games into account in assessing how well the market space is being serviced. Maybe if more old mmorpgs went inactive, new ones would appear. Or maybe not. But I think it's worth discussing.
