My old desktop used to be able to play League of Legends a year ago. Now it can't because of all the updates, graphically and content-wise, League of Legends has been having.

Is it possible that League of Legends, or perhaps other games in general, could upgrade to such astounding engines that only super-computers of the insanely rich would be able to process them?

Already seeing this with games like Crysis and World of Warcraft. What about League of Legends?

Get a good computer->Keep it for 5-6 years->Get new one->Repeat->Profit
That's prolly the most cost effective way of purchasing stuff.

Too bad Searz, your method does not work for laptops. They start to lag the system as **** after 2,5-3 years of use. In the end, best time I had a laptop quite usable was for 3 years and 4 months.

I have a 5-year-old iMac that runs LoL pretty much smoothly at 1920x1280. Granted I had to turn everything else down to almost nothing, and the framerate chugs a bit when hella minions are on screen (at least sometimes) but hey, it works.

Nope. You just need to not fill your hard dive more than 80% and use a good defragmentation program.

What Searz said. They can last if you understand how to take care of your hard drive and components. But yeh, get a new PC every 5-6 years. World of warcraft certainly does not require a super computer, my 5 year old Compaq laptop with 300GB of hardrive 2GB of ram and a integrated graphics card runs it on low at about 40 fps. Time to get a new computer, and no they will never do that because they will lose money, but they will update the graphics as time goes and computers get better, so keep updating as much as you can, components or the whole thing.
