Why Did Second Life Die Out After Becoming So Popular?
Do you remember when Second Life first came out? I was in college at the time at Texas State. People were quite excited about the game that seemed several steps ahead of any other online multiplayer real life games out there. It caught on quickly for sure. Texas State University was created on Second Life, and there were so many cool things you could do. The game seemed so complicated at times though that you needed a good computer to be able to load the website and enjoy the game.
What do you think went wrong with Second Life? You could say it ran its course, but so much of the game is still left undiscovered by me and many others. Why? Well, think about the real world. There are so many problems with the real world right now. Now, think about creating a real world online where people have more anonymity and can get away with things. To me, that is the reason that Second Life eventually fell flat on its face.
It became a hub for potential crimes and not a place for gaming, education and more. I might be wrong, but it sure does seem like that’s what happened. What do you think happened to Second Life?
Second Life Lost Out Thanks To A Few Different Problems
Second Life looked like so much fun when it was first introduced. That was before apps became extremely popular and cellphones were used more than laptops. Second Life is still an appealing concept though. If it weren’t for the people trying to get sexual all the time on there, then it would have likely been a game that was reinvented as technology progressed.
Again, the concept is still very popular, but it would need a makeover at this point. The game is years old now, but it’s really cool how you could view real life scenery in the game. Maybe the people that made the game will rework it somehow to where they can relaunch it in a different way. So far, it’s just been sitting there dead weight. I’m not even sure how many people play it anymore.
If you play Second Life, then you’ve seen how dead it is on there. I never got into it too much because it was just complicated and didn’t load well. Nowadays, there are plenty more gaming opportunities that can take up my time. I like games that are easy to play and that don’t require all the extra loading and preparation. Also, Second Life is a game you download, and I like browser based games.
