    Grats to pirate 101.  Maybe other games will see that quality does win.

    Nice job.

    Well, this is what happens when apathy meets an active community who enjoy their game. Even though I think Pirate 101 is a big pile smelly trousers, I will say GZ and well played for winning. Fair play KingsIsle. :)

    Congrats to all of the winners, and a huge congrats to P101 and KingsIsle. You treat your community so well, and a very loyal community it is.  KI didnt actually campaign. They posted a link on the log in screen, saying they have been nominated, and the loyal and dedicated community did the rest. The KingsIsle family, might be one that hides under the radar, but is a powerful one, when they want to be heard. KI is much loved, because they foster fairness and friendliness  and go out of their way to keep their players happy.  Well done. :)

    Having played both I think Pirates deserves it. GW2 just tried to be like WoW, face it folks. Surprised Pirates didn't win Most Innovative too. Chess type combat in an MMO? What other dev has the balls to do this and be successful at it? KI gives me hope that the industry is not all full of a bunch of WoW cloners.

    Congratulations to the winners and their fans. Let the wig snatching begin.

    You and I know this won't go by quietly.

    Well, that's surprising. Good to see strategy RPGs still have a following, even though I don't play Pirate 101.

    I still wonder why people seem to be excited about TESO, though.

    Ok, there is nothing wrong with pirate101 winning in this poll. However, please actually pkay gw2 first before saying it just tried to be like wow. Please.

    Well the outcome is a bit unexpected or but I like it :) Don't think the most innovative went to the right place but it's my opinion and opinions tend to differ.

    I have a level 80 ranger, I stopped when I hit the gear grind WoW is famous for. Good enough?

    Well this poll has told one thing about this site its filled with little kids but I guess that explains the hate towards every other game on this site. Good bye MMORPG.com

    Kida also play GW2. I have no idea what are you trying to imply here. You think GW2 is targeted towards adult audience only?

    Not really, as there is no gear grind (except for the 2 ascended peaces... But i got those at lvl 55 engi), atleast our combat isnt a dragonquest/ final fantasy knockoff.

It is not a good game; it's buggy, has dated-looking graphics, has the overall feel of a F2P game when it is B2P or possibly sub, and the turn-based combat has some serious issues at times! Epic fail of a poll!

    If anything, it's an epic success of a poll.  We asked folks to vote, and P101's players came out to represent their game more than anyone else did. They deserve a congrats for having such a passionate fan-base.  

    Indeed and well-said, Bill.

     

    But you know how it goes, any time the game chosen isn't some individual's personal favorite, it's regarded as a great travesty and a crime against humanity.

     

    People will get over it.

     

    Or not.

     

    Either way, congrats to the winners!

    Pirate101 is awesome, just like every other Kingsisle games... Nice job Kingsisle

    I hope everyone can now see and wake up that graphics don't and will never do a game.  Good job Pirate101 !!   Most anticipated , TESO is a no brainer , everyone's still brain washed on how amazing Skyrim was , I'd hold the dial on TESO , just my way on seeing and feeling things. Star Citizen is simply mind blowing and deserves all the attention it can get. As far as GW2 goes , I won't comment on it.  And LoL is a pretty nice choice for a hybrid MMO.   Overall , I'm happy with this years selections, for a change. :)

    Grats Pirate101 on GOTY, it wasn't my choice, but it would've been my second choice.  I do love me some Pirate101, and so do kids (we're all kids at heart right?). 

    I had no doubts that TESO was going to win most anticipated.  Among all my friends I've made over the decades of playing online, the vast majority say that they will probably be moving to it at least for awhile, and I'm one of them.  I might actually find something better than WoW or Rift O_o

    Star Citizen is one of the "darkhorse" titles I've been looking into since it was announced.  I'm a sim junkie and a space junkie....so it might be just for me :D

    Another one I had no doubts about, LoL has such a large playerbase, like 1% of thier players could vote to win it probably, jk lol.  I drop in to get my Yorick fix every once in awhile :)

    Pirates beat out WOW, LOTRO, EQ2, SWTOR, Planetside 2, STO, Vanguard, GW2 and even the MMORPG.com forums.  LOL

    I am guessing that the people who voted for TESO most likely are the people who actually took the time to read more about the game, often from original source. Obviously when just reading what forum posters have to say about the game does make people think TESO will be a bad game. Thruth is both sides don't know untill they actually are able to play the game though I can defenitly understand it got the vote pure what we already know. I havn't seen a good constructive topic "bashing" TESO with proper info as most of the "bash" topic are just ramblings with no true info in it. The most populair comments are often " it's just like WOW" which continue's to just tell "Hey I have a very limited playstyle and the only way I am able to play is how I have played WOW"

    As for the results: Yes I am suprised, but congrats to the winners never the less.

    One thing I find funny is that this site has covered Pirates101 allot, yet now suddenly people want to play it because it has won? Perhaps it has great/good feature's, but it aint my visual style of game.

  • LorishaLorisha Jacktown, OKPosts: 21Member Uncommon

    Me finding it hilarious that Pirates 101 took GOTY has nothing to do with being or not being a fan of GW2.  I bought GW2 on day 1 I have a level 8 character I am far FAR from a "fanboi" of this game. 

    I can't figure out if the joke is on GW2 for losing to a game like Pirates 101 or on MMORPG for having to list a game like Pirates 101 as THEIR players choice Game of the Year.

    Most Anticipated: Elder Scrolls Online
    "Congrats to Zenimax Online Studios. Now you'd better not let us down when the game launches at the end of 2013!"

    No pressure here! lol

    Pirate101 did surprise me! Gratz to KingsIlse :)

    And gratz to all the other winners :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.
