I think you're trying to act like designing a game to be fun is mutually exclusive from designing a game to get people to pay. They are, in fact, the same thing. WoW Designers aren't sitting in an office thinking "How do we get people to pay 15 dollars a month continually?" They are thinking "How do we make this game interesting for both new players and those who have been with us from the start?" Sure, part of the reason they are even doing that is in order to continually make money- that is their job. But you can't come at game design thinking "What's going to make me money?" because that's not why people pay for games in the first place. They pay for games that are fun. You design games that are fun. Fun is what is going to make you money.And honestly? I don't think your average game designer spends much time thinking about making money. I think if they're any good, they are thinking about how to make a good game.
