This guy does not get it, it is a fad which will be replaced with something else. The chances that this game continues with it's top ranking are almost zip.

I dunno, you might have said the same thing about Counterstrike 10 years ago, but it's still super popular.

Counter-Strike was in kind of a slump leading up to and shortly following the release of CS:GO. Of course, a slump for CS is still pretty good by the standards of almost any other game, but for a while the new version barely competed with then 8-year-old CS: Source in terms of player count, and no version could even catch a whiff of the success Dota 2 immediately saw when it came out. It wasn't until a couple years later that CS:GO really took off (maybe due to the broader competitive audience drawn in by Dota) and became 'super popular' as it is now:

Point being, CS kind of went away for a while and could have easily died off almost entirely if it didn't make the comeback that it did only a few years ago.
