    They can enjoy the game as much as they like but GW 2, and ThemeParks in general, are like McDonalds. Garbage and not a proper food (mmo).

    I'm loving the angst these awards are causing.  Remember a week or so ago when you and yours panning the Time award and said that it didn't matter because it wasn't a real gaming site.  Now that a real gaming site has presented the award it all comes down to "nuh uh - neener neener".

    It's a damn awesome game whether you like it or not.

    Tell me more about the high quality fantasy sandbox you play.

    From Jef, who is a self confessed sandbox fan. Oh, and someone who was upset they still dont have guesting.

    Also the guy said this:

    "SOE's portfolio is second to none, and it's one of the few big studios that isn't afraid to experiment with non-combat features and virtual world bells and whistles. EverQuest, EverQuest II, Vanguard, DC Universe Online, PlanetSide 2, Clone Wars Adventures, and Free Realms all are high-quality games that speak to a wide cross-section of gamers, and SOE's willingness to scrap initial EverQuest Next plans in favor of a sandbox reboot was the best piece of news I heard all year."

     

    So GW2 was a disappointment, but SoE has a great portfolio, and Free Realms and Clone Adventures are high quality games. What a laugh.

    LOL another one who's angsty and making shit up.  She doesn't call GW2 a disappointment.  She gave NPCs their own awards both good and bad and is pissed about guesting.  Not only that they are a single blogger's opinion, not the site's award.  Are you trolling and flame baiting?

    I am sure it is an awesome game (for some) but it is a crappy MMORPG. And massively is wrong saying that it is.

    This OP comes across as a bit trollish tbh. I won't report you as baiting, but you are sailing close.

     

    That aside... speaking as someone who is open to themeparks... I simply do not think GW2 is the best themepark (or any other type) MMORPG out there right now.

    It seems  the 'best' has to come from games released in this year? I am not sure that makes sense for these games... I mean, this makes sense for finite life single player titles, but a MMORPG is an ongoing service. It dosen't become irrelevant just because it wasn't realeased this year. I think that these kind of sites have to adjust their perspective here when talking about these games... There are FAR better MMOs out there than GW2 in my opinion.

    I mean, to rank GW2 above EvE as a MMORPG seems strange, and I don't even play EvE.

    If the reporting sites don't see these games as more then short term temporary throwaway experiences, why should the player base?

    Can you please tell us how a proper MMORPG should be in your opinion?

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    They have an opinion and so do you but, they have a bigger name and have more impact. I think that is the problem here. People think that there opinions ACTUALLY MATTER when they whine like this. They don't.

     

    The OP does come off as trollish - not good form.

    One based on virtual, persistant world. No instances, no quest hubs and level bracketted zones. A world which is like a real world, i.e. not constructed but rather evolved organically.

    Oh please.  Trolling really?  Look at the response from the people who always show up in the GW2 forums to shit on everything.  That is first class trolling.  You can't open a thread in this forum and say anything nice without the same 5 people showing up with their bullshit consipiracy theory posts and other tripe.  It's getting old.

    EVE is one of the worst mmos on the market right now in my opinion.  I can think of several themeparks or sandboxes I think are better than EVE.  The company lets large guilds control their game and, while that may be intentional, I think it makes for a horrible mmo.  Some people may like letting other people decide how you game.  I do not.

    No, I am just pointing out that while the magazine awarded this, it also considered it the runner-up for biggest dissapointment.

    I sid a 'bit trollish'... I didn't report or anthing, just observing. Just because others are doing the same doen't mean he isn't.

    Well, it's all just opinion I guess and you are entitled to yours for sure. EvE being better or worse wasn't really the point I was making though... It seems strange that's the piece you focused on.

    Really because I don't see that on the page you link at all.  The first blog on the post you link talks about how awesome the game is.  Her biggest criticism is Lost Shores was released too buggy.  I guess she never played rift after Storm Legion released which has to be the most buggy poorly thought out xpac released yet.

    Another well deserved award. And there's more to come, I'm sure.

    Oh, and no matter if the OP is "trolling" or not... because then at least half if not more of the people who answered here deserve a ban for "retaliation".

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

     That I have to agree with. Those that love the game considered it the best of the year, and those that expected or wanted something different were disappointed.
