    As of 2343 EST it was TSW by .2       It's a quality game and deserves more recognition than it gets.

    Hedonismbot: Your latest performance was as delectable as dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

    Deservedly so..

     

    TSW is so unique,even though its a themepark,it still stands out from the rest.

     

    great game.

    Is combat still mind-numbling slow and redundant?  I really loved everything about the game except for the combat, which is kind of a crucial thing to get right.

    You make me like charity

    I don't even know where this list is. lol  Either way, I didn't care for TSW, but it's nice to know fans have people to play with.

    Oops, never mind.  I found it.  I never even realized that tab was there..

    Yea! Congrats to TSW for being on top of the Released Game List on a website that has clearly shown evidence of people abusing said system and pushing or dropping games up and down said list according to their wishes.

    Isn't that EXACTLY what a polling of opinions is supposed to do?

     

    Of course, that doesn't mean people won't just vote a '1' for a game that clearly deserves much better in a fair world in order to pump up another game they like... but hey, the world is not a fair place.

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    Gotta agree - if combat were more 'fun' for me, I would've kept playing much longer. It has great narrative and quest design... the combat is what hurt it for me.

    yea, if each individual vote was made by 1 person only. in reality, you have 1 person using either a bot with a shit ton of throwaway accounts or some other exploit i dont know about to fuck with the ratings.

    See, I can't verify the validity of that claim... but if it is true... damn some people have way too much time and are pretty damn petty/sorry and pathetic to invest so much time and energy in doing such a thing.

    i'm not gonna lie, i can't verify the validity of my claim either, but its a rather well known fact around here though. i'm not saying every top game is up because of said bots because honestly it works both ways and sometimes balances out, but it does happen sometime when you'll see a game in particular just bounce up and down large value differences in the matter of minutes.

    Has more to do with people deliberately downvoting GW2 than anything TSW has done recently.

     If they were balanced opinions, sure. But anyone voting a 1 for GW2, WoW or SWTOR is obviously just a troll, even if you dont personally like the game, its obvious that they are above average in quality.

    Why do the actual reviews list them as having the same player scores still (8.6)?  Is this list supposed to have different ratings?  I don't get this site sometimes.

    They aren't 1s, but they are also certainly not "above average" in quality...

    Both TSW and Darkfall don't even remotely deserve to be on top. Everyone satisfied?

    so that means to me that the tsw fanboys are atm more active than the other ones.

    Does it matter? Why can't someone just enjoy a game without trying to prove that all others are inadequate. You know you ARE allowed to like multiple games in the same genre -_-

     

    Are there people on this site that probably gave TSW or GW2 a 0-2 out of 10? You betcha. These individuals have some personal issues, imo. They literally can not enjoy the games they like unless they "prove" that all other games suck.

     

    Don't be that guy.

     

     The game was so awesome that it almost put the company out of business......They had to fire half their employees and go through a fire sale jsut to stay in business.....Alot of people thought the game sucked.

    And how exactly is quality related to popularity? They are rather mutually exclusive.

    REALITY CHECK

    I'm not sure if the game should be in the number one spot, it definitely deserves to be in the top five. I don't quite understand the heavy dislike of the game -there's quite a bit the game does right , and quite frankly people on this site are WAY to caught up on the themepark vs sandbox angle.

    You've been bashing TSW tirelessly for 10 months already. This kind of dedication deserves credit but maybe it's tim to move on?

    so what happened? once the usual juggling of spots from a new title ranking(DF:UW) settled GW2 is back at the top.

    I'm surprised pirate 101 isn't at the top.

     

    Didn't it win MMO of the year by the majority last year? Thought it's rating would go up as well.

    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.

    nah, whatever is closest to GW2 is what people will vote on the most. so for released titles it was TSW. more people probably voted for it than ever bought it(not hard to believe lol). since the devs of Pirate advertised the contest in game it was closest for te MMO of the year, thus what most of these trolls voted for.

    When people realize they can like more than one MMO without hurting any other MMOs...their minds will explode.
