It could be 30 or 50 or 60. It was just to illustrate the line of thinking.
Would you say WoW is in its prime? No. The game is sort of past the days when it peaked in popularity. But does that mean it is dying? No. The game can continue for a long time and be a wonderful experience. It’s a weird line of thinking to insinuate that it is dying because it is no longer breaking subscriber records.
If you swap WoW out with a person, then it’s similar to say that you’re past 20, so you’re not in your prime anymore, and it’s basically downhill toward death!
That’s morbid and no one perceives a long timespan that way.
….But on the forums it’s perfectly normal to speculate in the “death” of WoW. Why’s that perceived as normal?
That’s all I was trying to say. If you’re 40, I’m not saying you’re a dead man walking. I’m trying to say that even discussing the matter (as we do with WoW) is silly. You find it absurd that I insinuate it, so it should be equally absurd in regards to WoW. But for some reason it isn’t…
