Online games & the future The other day I came to wonder what will happen to the various online games in the future. Especially the ones with monthly fees, such as Everquest, DAoC, WoW etc. - Will these games still exist in, say, 10 years? Do you think anything similar to the internet will "evolve", replacing the WWW as we know it? Games like Ultima Online are still running even though they are like 10 years old, and it would seem odd to me if they just shut down games that people had been loyally paying their monthly fees for, for years. Obviously, new online games will arrive, some of which will be unsuccesful (SWG anyone?) and some of which will steal alot of people from the older games, but do you think they will ever just shut down the servers of some of the larger online games? Everquest has been around for what, 5-6 years, and is still rather popular but do you think it will still be running in year 2020? It really got me wondering.
