How is it possible that it has lasted for so long?

Paying attention, mostly.

It's not the same game.

A lack of competition. All the games after it have tried to be it instead of changing the mmorpg experience. So they all failed.

Constant additions and expansions, plus addicting gameplay.

Because this set the standard of MMORPGs. It's hard to create another MMORPG without taking something from WoW.

I'll add that, whenever a new mmo comes up with something that IS a good and new idea, WoW quickly assimilates it into itself and continues to overpower the competition.

Like what? Not being an ass but WoW is the only mmorpg I've played besides a short couple week stint in Guild Wars and leveling to 5 in SWTOR (Which was awful) so I really don't know what ideas they've taken in and whatnot.

Because it's good and despite what many angry nerds think, Blizzard does a great job monitoring and reacting to player feedback. WoW continues to adapt and evolve while still (most importantly) remaining WoW.
