Given how 1st person perspective (pvp) works, and 3rd person (pve) works, I find myself surprised that so many people seem to care much about the cosmetics of aging thing one way or the other. You have to go out of your way to see your character's face, and imo if you spend a lot of time looking at your character's face instead of actually playing the game, that is a pretty weird form of narcissim imo. I understand that a significant number of people seem to care a great deal about this, but tbh I find it to be a minor detail at best. One of those flavor rping things some folks are always on about. Buzzword of the day: immersion.
The debuffs for growing old are a game mechanic and a seperate conversation, but just looking old? Can't say I spend enough time looking at my character's face to care. Also my avi is african american with white hair, so he looks like a badass no matter how old he looks. Just sayin.
