    People.  Just people with opinions.

    All awards are basically crap.  Too much politics.

    I look more at the nominees than the award winners.  Usually someone/something listed in their deserves the acclaim.

    Translation:  My game isn't on that list.  My game is never on the list.  When my games are on the list the awards are the coolest thing evar!

    I'm just teasing you.  Don't take it seriously.

    Not saying that's how it is for Grimal, but people are like that on these forums, yes even some GW 2 fans are like that as well no one is safe lol.

     

    I know you wasn't being serious btw.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

    P2P LOGIC = If it's P2P it means longevity, overall better game, and THE BEST SUPPORT EVER!!!!!(Which has been rinsed and repeated about a thousand times)

    Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

    Thanks.  Sometimes I say things too harshly.  I didn't want to offend or get another warning lol.

    For me, some time ago was 2003. Unfortunately, I was not introduced to her until 2005. Nevertheless, she somehow still remains the brightest light this once potentially limitless genre has ever known.

    Amazing to realize that her next decade is so close on the horizon.

    What I liked about that list is:

    GW2 > MOP

    Torchlight 2 > Diablo 3

    Demonstrates actual proper gamer tastes rather than the mindless fanatacism of blizzdrones plugging lazy games made for kids.

    Top voted MMO is not really a surprise, while X-fire numbers are pretty suspicious at best games like TOR had fallen to almost nothing after 3 months while GW2 been at about half Wows numbers the last 2 months... That doesnt really prove much about GW2s actual numbers except that it does somewhere between okay and good but it is a good sign.

    Also, all stores in my card have sold out their gemcards and my buddy who works in EB games say it is one of the topselling games.

    However that it is the top game altogether is unexpected to me... I guess it have been a pretty bad year with lots of sequels because MMOs rarely win this price.

    It is also surprising that Diablo 3 did so bad, there have been many complains but with the incredible large salesnumbers it had I would assume more people should have voted for it. Maybe it is because the initial technical problems it had.

    Anyways, gratz to GW2 and the other games on the list.

    Except GW2 keeps losing players and is now down behind Diablo 3 player numbers on Xfire. In time played it barely beats it, but evyone can see it will drop behind D3 that western tool within days ...

    not even the 2 last patches helped it out.

    i consider the value of the link non valid too.

    Remember when SWTOR was GOTY, having been released just right before the end of the year was done?

     

    Yeah... good times eh?

     

    ...incase you can't get the sarcasm, it means nothing.  Just a matter of who paid whom more to grab a title in most cases sadly.

    Ooooh look! Still the top selling MMORPG on Amazon 3 months after its release... and beating games likes "Assassin's Creed III" which got released more recently. And mind you, that's only the boxed copies.

    But yeah, GW2 is doomed and keeps losing players... we trust your word, mate, and XFire is definitely 100% reliable.

    I'm gonna quote a post from a fellow citizen of this website's forums:

    We never tire of this cycle.

    So I'm gonna give you a "me too", if it can makes you feel happier. Yes, GW2 is doomed, and losing players. XFire can't be wrong!

    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.

    I dont think anyone who doesnt have a personal vandetta against GW2 would disagree there.

    I havent agreed with a goty award since 2001. Journey gets my vote this year. Grats to anet though. That will definitely increase sales.

    Last one I agreed with was "Homeworld".  That takes us out of the genre entirely, and back to '99.

    I am still waiting for the Wall Street Journal's list, because if anyone knows gaming its the WSJ. Seriously though, it doesn't surprise me, Although leaving Borderlands 2 off that list really exposes the flaws.

    Who would'a thunk that Bad Spock would get all philosophical on us! Nice touch - really.

    i have no idea if WSJ reports on games - but I know Forbes does http://www.forbes.com/games/

    i havent played Borderlands2 but i agree w you that I had expected to see it on the top 10

     

    I dont think TIMEs list is invalid and i commented that TIme has been doing Top 10 videogame lists for 5+ years

    I agree that sites like IGN have more merit

    Reminder, lest there's any doubt about the glory of meaninglessness that is GoTY awards...

    Do we need to cover the Grammys, too?

    I am afraid this will only motivate the producers to create more games like this.

    Soon MMOs will move to consoles from PCs...
