Computers, tvs, phones, and all manner of electronic devices are constantly updated to become "better" and "new and improved." It's a fact that the realm of mmorpg games also falls into this category as well. Gamers are constantly waiting for the NEXT BIG THING to be released, and when a new online game is introduced, older games tend to be abandoned and forgotten. Yet for all this ballyhoo about newer being better, online games that many consider past their prime are holding their own. It's a testament to perseverance that these older mmos are still going strong.
