I don’t know if there still having someone remember Azeroth? Or still have someone will go back Azeroth after WOW open the Classic Servers? From the first time I play games until now, many famous games dead after a while. Although, we can’t say games like RTS or MMORPG are all dead. But compare before, the MMORPG age is really gone
Maybe for most players, that they think all types of game such as RTS, FPS, RPG, MOBA, and Roguelike should be the same level. I didn’t realize before, until my friends told me each type of game will have their own popular periodic law. Just like FPS game, they are not very popular before maybe ten years ago. But currently, players begin to pay more attention on these games, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Rainbow Six. However, some types of game such as RTS and MMO, does they will reborn in the future? In other words, maybe now is their peak time of all cycle.
MMORPG games always need players put their lots of time and energy into the game. So when there have a game with more interesting and make people feel more relaxed, the decline of MMORPG games will be inevitable. But it doesn’t mean there has no space in the game market for MMORPG games, maybe MMORPG games should consider about to cut down the complicated process and reduce the necessarily operation. It will be more popular if they can do that. For mobile games, except WOW style games such as Land of Glory. I figure out there still have some more games contains with eastern elements, such as Novoland the castle in the sky. These games will improve the MMORPG into a better place, but I still feel sadness for the old type of games.
