WoW is now more than 14 years old and most people have more than 5 years of in-game experience (I’ve been gaming since 2007). Lately I’ve been asking myself “Why most people keep playing WoW after all this time?”
Of course the answer may be very simple … the massive lore of the game , the enormous community, the relevant new content…or most likely a combination of factors. In the end of the day despite the negative feedback from the community for some of the new content and the direction of the main storyline, the majority of the community is still playing WOW after all this years.
Honestly I think that aside of the obvious factors there is something more that keeps people so attached to the World of Warcraft. We all have the feeling that we’re part of big story in the game. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about people who honestly hate the opposite faction (for Teldrassil, or Undersity), or the ones who enjoy saving Azeroth over and over again, or the people who celebrate every holiday in the game ,because they feel it like a real life holiday….for most people this isn’t just a game (I know that some people won’t agree).
But those are only my thoughts….
What are your reasons for playing WOW ? What are the things that kept your passion for playing WOW alive ?
Please share your thoughts 🙂
