    WildStar's not even out yet. :P

    Umm Wildstar, Elder Scrolls Online, Destiny .... None of them even made the list. What the heck Bill Murphy? ( ok just kidding ) i just couldnt help it with such a variation in interpretation.

    I agree with ShakyMo, not about the payment part, but about the those games are not from 2013. A best of 20xx is meant to be a list of games that came out that year. Especially when you say Best of 2013 So far, implying more are coming, games from previous years did not launch in 2013 and do not belong. Period. So congratulations on poor use of titling.

    No planet side 2.  Its an MMOFPS but it is still great.

    Honestly, of all the 7 games mentioned, I think TSW and NW are the only ones that are actually good...

    AsRock 990FX Extreme3
    AMD Phenom II 1090T ~3.2Ghz
    GEiL 16Gb DDR3 1600Mhz
    ASUS GTX970 3x HD monitor 1920x1080

    You forgot PIRATE 101! The best game of 2012, possibly of all time.

    SWTOR is there and TSW but no WOW ..good joke but WoW has his own rank: THE KING !!!!
  • superniceguysuperniceguy AnchorheadPosts: 2,278Member Uncommon

    Star Trek Online should be in there with an expansion coming, as well as Season 8 and 9

    SWTOR is no where near hitting the right notes. Even Vanguard is getting more love than SWTOR is!

    How many other MMOs were there? This is more of an ordering of all the running MMOs by order of preference.

    I would have put TSW ahead of SWToR.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    But where is WAR (LOOOL!!!) :) :D ;)?

    Nah, for serious now.

    My predictions for the end of the year list:

    7. Something(anything can be a #7 really)
    6. AoW
    5. Tor
    4. Rift
    3. TSW
    2. Eve
    1. GW 2

    Come on. We know that mmorpg is going to give #1 to GW 2. Man, such an overrated game. Now juxtapose that with TSW. Man, that's not funny...

    No poe

    Because poe isn't a mmo. This they got right.

    Not sure how WoW, Defiance and Rift could get left off of this list.
  • asdarasdar Tequesta, FLPosts: 662Member Uncommon

    GW2 was good, like vanilla ice cream.  It's not the best flavor but it didn't do anything wrong.  It's not that I think it's great, but it has less mistakes than the rest and so floats to the top like the best turd in the bowl.

    I'd replace NW with Planetside 2, Age of Wushu with Rift, although I didn't hate Age of Wushu. I think that you're onto something about AoW having something new to bring to the MMO field, still I'd place it 8th.

    Please stop complaining about games released prior to 2013 being on the list. If you take the time to read the intro:

    "The list will include titles new to the industry this year, and past titles that have been doing “all the right stuff” so far... essentially it’ll be a recount of the games we think are hitting all the right notes in 2013."

     

    My list would be:

    3) Neverwinter

    2) TSW

    1) GW2

    Replace swtor with anything

    Even scarlet bloody blade

    My personal list of current games to keep an eye on....

    1) TSW - Best "leveling" experience.  Best dungeons.  End-game is kind of grindy.  With the right developments, this could become this generations 'Eve".  

     

    2) FF14 - Was released and will soon be re-released.  I think Yoshida and his crew are pulling in just the right number of notes from what we expect from MMOs while retaining some of the interesting qualities of the original and throwing in an even heavier dose of FF Fanfare.

     

    3) GW2 - Not a huge fan, but I appreciate much of what ANet did with this one.  I'm excited to see where they take it as 2013 winds down.

     

    4) NWN - Perfect when you just need those short, quick doses of fun.  I think this game will live and die by its foundry.  It seems relatively capable now, hope for something even more capable at the end of 2013.

     

    5) Defiance - Like NWN, its perfect for those short, quick doses of fun.  I haven't had any issues, and the gunplay is addictive.  I think the game could use a bit more depth and am interested in seeing where Trion takes it.

    Neverwinter at #3 is interesting but I'd have to agree. Although I've never tried EvE I know it has a die hard following. I would have put Star Wars at #7.

    Well wow vs tsw is debatable. Tsw has the best quality dungeons out their, though obviously wow beats it on quantity, its also got a novel questing and novel advancement system.

    Wow vs swtor is a no brainer though, swtor is just wow in space done badly, with a lifeless world.
