It is essential to be able to keep pace and adaptable in all aspects of life. Technology is making this even more critical. While you could claim that humans are the dominant species due to changes in their surroundings, that isn't the case.
Although I don't know your age take a look back at the past 20 years and see how technology has changed throughout the decades. VCRs, CDs, DVDs, touchscreens, and other interfacing devices have all helped us to adapt. The world of technology is where gaming suffers, adapting is essential for the user. You would prefer Runescape to keep up with its rivals and last for a long time. But with a backwards attitude that "no major changes because they don't have the same technology as our game", runescape will slowly die.
