If you feel Guild Wars 2 is worthy to win this, please vote. This game is representing the MMO genre in this, so simply to bring honor to the mmo genre, to bring in new people, to express that mmos are a great thing and to give the idea that this is what people want rather than the simple hack and slash or fps fest please vote, not for gw2 specifically, but for the mmo genre. This year has held many disspointments in gaming in general to many people. Yet, those games will win simply becuase we as a MMO community are not united. They will win simply becuase people know that game better. We need to show these people what MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE games are. They arent just some nerd filled, asian, grindfest. We need to show them that we are a great community, we are something fresh and different than those others console zergfests. This sint about gw2, this is about the future of mmos. We may be small as a group, but we need to atleast put up a fight agaisnt the likes of Payne and hopefully Mass Effect 3. This is for all MMOers. Please consider voting everyone. Thank you.

    I wouldn't vote for our genre, I don't want people to think this is what it has to offer.

    Voting would equal new people and new ideas. There is a reason why this genre hasnt changed in 7 years, it is becuase the community hasnt.

    Maybe I am just tired or had been out with friends to long tonight. But I am cranky, that being said the last seven years really didn't bring any new blood that helped forward the genre much. That is  my opinion acourse. I am not picking on GW2 I could tell they put so much work into the game and it is fun for what it is.

    If you were really concerned with the integrity of the vote results, wouldn't you want to tell people instead to get out and vote for the game they want to win .. rather than telling people how to vote in advance?

     

    I'll vote, but it will be for the game I think deserves the award, not for what someone else wants.  Thanks for the link though!

    Yeah no way.  I recently started playing single player rpg's and I feel like I've been missing out on a LOT over the years.

    Put a chat room in some of these games and I don't know when I would ever return full time to an mmorpg lol.  I'm actually going to boot up Wizardry Online right now cause I heard its got kind of a console type feel although not all that good (from what I hear).   It's challenge that I'm looking for.  A good type of challenge, not jumping platforms all day in an "mmorpg" and meaningless stats.

    I understand. I have seen it too.

    when you ask typical gamer what a mmo is, they will awlays either say what? Or mention something about wow.

    This show the staleness of the genre. And I believe gw2 winning this will bring in the new blood we need to move it forward and grow. Gw2 doesnt have to be the mmo game in the long run, however it has the resources, the team, and the content to say "this is the mmo genre". All we need to do for the genre is simply vote in things like this. I want the mmo news to be important. Gw2 has been attempting to reach this player base since its creation, shown obviously by the use off advertising in theatres, amazon, and several other major sites. But it is not enough. No other game can represent the continuation and future of the genre more than gw2. Not wow becuase well that game has remained the same for the past 7 years. Not tsw becuase it has already fallen continuation wise. Not swtor for its simple suckiness. Not eve because the new gen will be casual, and eve is as hardcore as they come. Not lotro, not runescape, not teso, not darkfall. They are all good games in there own respects, yet none have this chance gw2 does as mmos. As representatives of our hope that we can change and grow, and even show that more games like gw2, more new ideas, will be the future of us as mmoers.

    So you are accusing me of moving your hand and forcing you to vote? No. I am simply making a proposition. What you do is what you do, I would just hope you take what I said into consideration. There is a reason why there is a link in the beggining, i dont care if you read what I say or not. I do care that you would take what I say i to consideration.

    also, i dont get what you mean by integrity. I hardly accused anyone of cheating.

    Thats fine. I personally voted for every game i felt is better than the other, including mass effect. Thank you for reading though.

    I think now every GW2's fan must vote for our game - It would be a good present for ArenaNet for the christmas (And for GW2's players. too)

    Well, starting off by saying, "If you feel Guild Wars 2 is worthy to win this, please vote." .. essentially saying vote only if you think GW2 is worthy to win, etc.  Maybe it's just the wording, or how I read the post.. maybe it's late.

     

    Nevermind, it's late, lol. G'night.

    Holy crap those were some tough choices. Persona 4 Golden vs. Hitman Absolution? That's just unfair.

     

    *scrolls down*

     

    Last Story vs Borderlands 2 wtf!? *flail* HOW DO I CHOOSE. Also yes, GW2 of course. That one was easy.

     

     

    Edit - BTW, the likelihood of GW2, an MMO, winning against Max Payne 3 on Gamespot.com is slim to none so don't get your hopes up.

    I understand. What  I meant by that if you all oput feel gw2 is the winner, then go ahead and vote. The rest was for mmoers who have no care for gw2 or even hate gw2, it was simply to the mmo community as a whole. It was the wrding, I will take the blame for that.

    Seems like a marketing trick to register for Gamespot.com.  The vote probably does not go anyplace. Maybe nothing against the OP but Gamespot itself.

    Besides mmos have gone down hill in the last three years OR THEY WENT F2P.....I'm not sure if mmos are worth a vote anymore anyway.

    Yeah, this entire lottery system they have is irrational. You have noname games with like one platform vs series games (me3, d3, ac, h4 etc) on mutliple platforms. I just was hoping this would lead to more growth in the mmo industry and not uust the console shoot'em and cut'em games that typically win with no real effort of there own. It seems this wont be the year either for even a little mmo pride. Gw2 seems to be the last decent mmo, and it along with wow shall be left standing by the end. 

    I have been on these forums for a long time, I actually recommend you not to register unless you want to be spam mailed. I just wanted to a) spread the vote around and b) try to get people on here to vote for gw2 for the sake of mmos as a whole.

    Ugh seriously? You have any idea how pretentious that post reads? "For the sake of mmos" "The last decent mmo" you even wrote "shall"....shall

    Can you please just find a way to enjoy your mmo without feeling compelled to dump on the rest? Is it that hard to just say "hey I like GW2" without having to add all the other bullshit?

    I voted for Max Payne 3. GW2 ( or Arenanet rather) can suck it.

    Consume. Be silent. Die.

  • KyleranKyleran Tampa, FLPosts: 19,977Member Uncommon
    Actually, if you really enjoy playing gw2 then we aren't on the same page at all on the direction this genre should have taken. I'm waiting for the day when you all leave and return to the console games whence you came from. Goodnight ;)

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Max Payne 3 is a better game, so I voted for that.

    I voted against Gw2, It doesnt deserve to win at all
  • The_KorriganThe_Korrigan EastPosts: 2,630Member

    GW2, a PC only game, vs Max Payne 3, a PC/XBOX/PS3 game... yeah, very fair vote </sarcasm>

    It's actually impressive GW2 manages to score over 40% in such conditions.

    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.

    Wow people, if you do not want to vote for GW2 then don't do it. No need to get pissy about it.

    I voted for GW2, I have had some fun with the game. A breath of fresh air compared to the "hold-your-hand" SWTOR that I fell for. GW2 is not the god of games but it is worth my vote.

  • SiugSiug TallinnPosts: 1,236Member Uncommon
    I think that GW2 is a decent game but personally I did not like it enough to vote for it. Maybe TESO or some other MMO gets things done finally. As much as I like TSW I don't think even that one is the game of the year or something. Best RPG probably but not best MMO.
  • LizardoneLizardone baltimore, MDPosts: 93Member
    GW2 already won awards in other media outlets. So it's not that GW2 hasn't been recognized. Other games such as Max Payne are multi-platform games(PC, X360, PS3) so I doubt GW2 will win on this one. I voted for GW2, but I think the winner will be Halo 4.
  • WhitebeardsWhitebeards TokyoPosts: 778Member

    Thanks for the link..i voted for Borderlands 2, Max Payne 3.

    What  kick ass games.

  • zomard100zomard100 karlovacPosts: 228Member
