    Well not everyone believes in making a Mc donalod MMO to beat WOW. That is the only way to be successful these days.

    Why do people try and "confuse" choice with a games quality?To start arguments from nothing?

    if you want to discuss the games quality go ahead,that is sort of the main purpose of a discussion site.However posting information from a biased site means nothing to a discussion.

    A good valid source would be Carmichael or Cliffy b or Epic games top producers made comments becuase they KNOW their stuff,they understand everything about game design,Massively does not.

    Do you know of any gaming editorial that doesn't have advertisement?

    Here is what they said:

     

    Game of the Year: Star Wars: The Old Republic

     

    OMG this game just launched! How can we possibly rate this the game of the year! We must be paid off! Adhgdjhgdudbjh! The fact is, this was a hard one. RIFT launched as a staff favorite in March, but it's both the freshness of SWTOR's launch and the fact that MMO fans have been going nuts over this game for years that combine to make this our Game of the Year. Plus, ya know, it's kinda fun.

    ... They were wrong, so incredibly wrong. And rather biased to. They admittadly chose the game based on "years" of hype and NO NO experience at all playing it. Therefore, I will continue to reccomend swtor as greatest dissapointment. That was just bad journalism.

    it was an easy pick; TSW fell short and there was no other MMO worth to mention for 2012

    In other threads / games, high review scores and awards are considered "paid for" and deemed  as reliable as a used car salesman.

     

    But when it comes to GW2...IT'S A U.S. SUPREME COURT DECISION!  All hail GW2...the greatest, deepest, most fun MMO of our time! Hurray!

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

    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.

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

     

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

    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.

     

    Yes that is a nice dream game but sadly as you know we are living in 2012 not 2050.

    What you are basicly saying is you want a living breathing world without any form of scrips the world is "organic"?

    I might give you a advice...don't check these forums for the next 40 years you will only be sad no games have that dream sparkle you are looking for at present time.

     

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

    That's crazy talk, considering UO provided just about every feature this particular individual was looking for over fifteen years ago. I'm not saying that it's ignorance or stupidity to use the technology argument when you need a leg to stand on, but when developers are willing or capable of understanding that MMORPG's aren't required to use the same basis of foundation for mechanics and graphical standards, it simply doesn't apply.

    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. 

     

    Grimal don't you love reactions to the failure of their ever flawless logic.

    I just find it amusing that the same site awarded and considered it in strongly in such polar opposite categories.

    But it wasn't the site as a whole that called it a disappointment.  It was one blogger on the site.  The site as a whole called it the MMO of the year.

     

    If MMORPG.com called GW2 its pick for GOTY, but Pokket said that GW2 sucked in one of her articles, would you claim that MMORPG.com said GW2 sucked AND called it GOTY?  If you did, you'd be demonstrably wrong.  Just because Pokket writes an article giving her opinion (Pokket's only an example, not saying she did anything) and publishes it on this site, doesn't mean that article speaks for the site as a whole.

     

    There is a difference between an individuals and a collection of individuals.

     

    OT: Congrats to Anet for being recognized again for making what I consider to be the best video game I've ever played!

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

    Not to take anything away from GW2, but you really must admit it was a pretty lousy year for new MMORPGs. It is completely unsuprising that they and other sites would pick the one new MMO that didn't fall flat on its face directly after launch.

    That just shows how poor of taste they have. TL2 is NOT bette than D3 in any way. But some people are too closed minded to see that. Oh well, their loss. It's always more fun to hate on a game than to actually try to like it and see for yourself if the criticism is valid. (or still valid after subsequent updates)

    so i dont want to be THAT guy, but im going to say GW2 is FLONKING terrible. The graphics, crafting, and storyline are parts to be rewarded, they have done very well with those, but it is not very fun, all you do is try to find events, swing at creatures with the same moves, and do it all over again. Dungeons have no structure just try to keep yourself alive, and there isnt much to do. It doesnt feel like a very fun good mmmo, ive hit level 60 and i am BORED. I keep thinking "it gets better, it gets better" but it blows IMO. It is not an intriguing or fun game, and there is ultimately not a very wide array of rewards to work for in end game or all game.

    All D3 has over TL2 is polish... yeah... polish. No offense but poor taste would be judging a game off polish when it has very flawed systems in place.

     

    Sorry, but if your looking as Polish > actualty game design,  you really aren't very good for judging the quality of a game.

     

    As an old D2 fan, D3 is quite an insult. It seems to miss the point entirely of what made D2 great.

    When MMORPG.COM votes it the best mmo of 2012, are you going to go to the Massively forums and post about it?

  • spizzspizz BlackForrestPosts: 2,587Member

    Its the best of the year since there are no better ones around probably .....SWTOR was the game of the year aswell. 

    Dont care about magazines and their reviews anyway....

     

     "I have to say PlanetSide 2 definitely wins for the best MMOFPS, hands-down"

    What bigger MMOFPS got released this year....what a bullshit article.

    To be honest it was about the best year since 2004 ...perhaps Rift and LOtRO didn't stumble and fall flat on thier faces but post WOW MMORPGs have been slim to nil at best

    Maybe you're a bit daft to realize it, but SW:TOR launched last year December. Though it would technically be cannidate to this years's rewards just because it came after last years ones (too late to be considered), nobody thought it was near quality to even do so.

     

    The Secrete World did okay, and is doing a buy-to-play model similar to Guild War 2's model.   The game is expanding itself, and releasing content, but push come to shove it's nowhere near content rich as GW2 is.

     

    And, just to point out to a few major MMORPG's, there's been a handful of expansions for EVE Online, Rift, LotRO, and WoW.  Each of these games gaining a huge boost because of this. 

     

    A bad year for MMORPG's?  No, that was last year that ended in a pile of....  But this year saw great games launch, great expansions launch, and was an all around good year  (even with 38 Studios and City of Heros both crashing).

     

     

    P.S. This is all mentioning only "Western MMO's", as there was several dozen "Eastern MMO's" that launched as well.  Usual stuff though it was.

     

    P.P.S. Notice how this same website picked Rift as best expansion, EVE as runner up.  Neither LotRO nor WoW Panda was mentioned for expansion of the year.  That's saying something about how well those "niche" games are doing with their content for their players.

    "I don't like TL2 over D3, therefore anyone who does has poor taste!"

    Yeah right.
