    Biggest Disappointment of 2012: City of Heroes' sunset (Runner-up: Guild Wars 2)

    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?

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

    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.

    It's one of the categories in their list.  Scroll down.  You should see it.  I am not making this up.

    Themepark hate club unite!  Tell everyone how they are wrong to enjoy this game!

     

    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?

     

    Oh please.  Trolling really? 

    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.

    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.

    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.

     

    You brought up EVE and how strange it was ranked lower.  Why would that be strange?

    I think it is out of line for you to call out the poster.  A game the GW2 fans like has won another award and we can't even enjoy that without people coming in and shitting on it.  The tinfoil hat and hate club remarks are true though.  You literally can not make a positive thread about the game without the same people coming in over and over spewing the same bait.  It sounded tongue in cheek to me, but of course if a GW2 fan writes it then people take it too seriously and over-react to it.

    I dunno, was there other serious competition besides TSW? But I'll agree with the award, hard really to deny even though not my style MMORPG. Bought my son a copy last month and he is really enjoying it.

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

    You guys put too much into what others say, either you enjoy the game or not.  Wow won multiple awards for years and it didn't make the game better or worse for me, so once again who cares.  I play GW2 when the desire hits me and usually lose interest in a few days latter.  That doesn't mean it isn't a good game, but other games such as STO and SWTor still hold my attention for part of the month also.  As for it getting selected game of the year, well there really wasn't much competition in my opinion, but congrats anyways!

    Because it obviously is just an example and not the larger point being made. You could replace EvE here with any number of older MMORPGs, it wouldn't matter. It was just an example.

    Just seems you focused in on that one thing and ignored everything else I was saying.

    The last thing I want to do is be dragged down by a squabble of whether specific MMORPG X is better then specific MMORPG Y... The point I was making isn't really about that.

    Lets move on past EvE.

     

    The point is that older games, as ongoing services, should be considered for these yearly awards IMO.

    It's almost always the new MMO on the block that wins, even if it doesn't deserve it.  This industry is fixated on the new shinies, even if it proves (more often than not) that they are clueless about what gamers really want and are stumbling around and crapping out games that fail to retain players within the first six months or less.  Eventually they will learn their hard needed lessons if for no other reason than their pocket books.

    I think that is the main problem. The "MMOs", and I use that therm loosely, released the last few years have been quite sub-par. Either buggy indy garbage or triple A ThemePark garbage.

    Next year looks better, we will have that MMO third person shooter based on a running TV series. ArcheAge will be released in the east (maybe), Darkfall UW and a bunch of other released in the year following that that seem to be neither low quality indy games or ThemeParks. So 2013-14 will probably be much better,

    Understandable. Gw2 is definately one of the most hyped mmos prior launch, and while huge number of people like the game, there's a big portion of players that didn't like it. That's why I find it logical to be nominated for both GOTY and Dissapointment.

    I don't think anyone can accuse ANet of paying for game awards.  Buying awards requires money.  Buy to play simply doesn't generate the kind of cash you would need to buy off all the awards.  Probably need something like a monthly subscription with millions of players to accomplish something like that.

    That being said, the competition was pretty fierce in the MMORPG market this year...... right.

  • ThebigthrillThebigthrill Eastpointe, MIPosts: 117Member

    SWTOR won the year before.

    Anyone can win this trophy.

    Of course :)

    I was being sarcastic, because that is a typical response when some mmo receives a reward.

    Biggest Disappointment of 2012: City of Heroes' sunset (Runner-up: Guild Wars 2)

    Only on Massively can we vote a game best game of the year and also give it second place for biggest disappointment of the year. We're a rough audience, man.

    Justin: Two years in a row now we've had a game that still had a healthy population and was making money get shut down by forces outside of the devs' or players' control. The news of City of Heroes' closure was brutal to hear, the player rally to save it was inspiring, and the end result was depressing. A good game cut down before its time should always be mourned.

    Larry: In an industry that seems to produce a lot of cookie-cutter games, trying to steal users from existing games, City of Heroes has always done its own thing. The designers at Paragon Studios really listened to its playerbase and taught many lessons to many MMO designers. Hopefully, future producers will see some of the extraordinary things CoH did -- like side-kicking, player-generated content, and unlockable classes -- and carry them on to the next generation of games.

    Jef: I'm sure I'll be crucified for this, but I don't see what all the fuss was/is about regarding Guild Wars 2. I enjoyed it in beta and for about a week at launch, but it's nothing I haven't played many times before. It also has a number of annoyances that older games have long since solved.

    Richie: Where's my guesting, GW2??
     

    You basically have this Jef guy that played for only a week after launch and still thinks it's lke all other MMOs, and Richie who wants the legendary guesting feature.

    Oderint, dum metuant.

    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).

    Says you.  Sorry to burst that huge bubble but sandbox gurus such as your self will never get a proper MMO because first none of you know what you want and secondly when a game comes along with great sandbox elements you diss it to no end.

     

    GW2 is GOTY and deservedly so!

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    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?

     

    So you wont report him for speaking his mind but you and the rest of the haters are allowed all the hate filled animosity you can muster.

     

     

    RIGHT!

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Biggest Disappointment of 2012: City of Heroes' sunset (Runner-up: Guild Wars 2)

     

    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.

    Ive never played Clone Wars or Free Realms, but he is on the money about the others.  EQ, EQ2, PS2 and DCUO are four very diverse, quality games.  Just look at the housing in SoE games, SWG and EQ2 are consider the top 2 (or 2 out of 3 with UO in the mix) in housing.  They have experimented with player made content in both SWG and EQ2.  They are adding stuff like SoEmote for roleplayers.

    The company is obviously not without their flaws, but they are certainly are one of the few studios that tries to think outside the box a bit and they get it that its not all about combat combat combat, worlds and people matter too.

    Jeff was the resident Secret World fanboy, until he gave up on it apparently. most of its related posts come from other people there. bitter to the end like the swtor boys, too bad.

    Yeah anyone who doesn't praise GW2 to 7th heaven is either bitter or fanboy of some other mmo.

    *rolls eyes*
