A friend told me today that her boyfriend has been playing Defense of the Ancients for many years. Considering that the first version of DotA came out in 2003 — 16 years ago — I can see how that was not an exaggeration.

She told me she expects him to continue playing it for many years to come. Assuming he plays for another 16 years, his total time with the game will add up impressively.

I found myself unable to resist the opportunity. I told her that at some point he might need to switch to Defense of the ancients, geriatric edition.

If only for the acronym.
