What games have only survived so long because of their communities and how?

Minecraft. No explanation necessary.
Metal Gear Solid, because the gameplay in terms of strategies is so vast and also beacuse there are still some people who play it.
Lord of the Rings Online.
I was a really active player for years, but lately it's been running on empty. The devs are super-passionate and took it over when Turbine dropped it, they formed a little offshoot company, the playerbase is a loyal one but there's been nothing really new for quite some time now.
If you wondering, the ring was destroyed and we're working our way through some minor after-events mentioned in the Appendices, after Aragorn and Arwen's wedding last year or the year before.
