Agree fully. :-) Never enjoyed so much in my life with any game of any kind, ok, maybe Wow. Actually have hard times to choose which one is better, but for sure Swtor have much better overall well known lore. Watched as kid first movie while never heard about wow lore until started to play. Great games both, top of the top.
Guild wars 2 at the top, what does that make Guild Wars 1=Top+
Half of SWTOR is in the list , the other half "the space game" is at the bottom
Eve #1 for niche game, if you don't like space it sucks big time
TSW if you are into story this is KING
SWTOR being in the mix had me scratching my head, but other than that, pretty fair list.
"Mr. Rothstein, your people never will understand... the way it works out here. You're all just our guests. But you act like you're at home. Let me tell you something, partner. You ain't home. But that's where we're gonna send you if it harelips the governor." - Pat Webb
Neverwinter, good or bad, shouldn't be on this list as it is still in Beta, open, gold, pre-launch, but not yet in release last I saw.
Regardless, if this is the 'Best' we have for this year so far, we are in a terrible year. When ARPG's (Tera, GW2, NW) can masquerade as full MMO's. When shallow gimmicky MMO's (DF:UW, SWTOR, TSW) are considered among the best. ...sigh... Why not consider Scrabble as the hottest 'new' MMO property, it sure beats many of the ones on this list.
I think it's a good selection overall.
However, I personally wouldn't really rank them. Each and every one of those games offer a very distinct experience, which will attract a different audience.
Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

Positive attitudes are not allowed on mmorpg.

GW2 doesn't make my list. The game is super bland and boring. Was actually shocked to see mmorpg.com rank that game number 1. This account is my third for mmorpg.com I made it because I couldn't remember my information to sign into GW2 beta key give away. Made a new account, got the key, played the beta for a few hours, thought the game was great so I preordered it and lasted 3 weeks before I grew tired of it.
I find it interesting people think CCP <eve online's="" developers=""> are loyal!
haha CCP have no idea what loyalty means as far as the player base goes

Now that I've played GW2 I don't get where this hate is coming from? Is it bangwagon hate? The game surely isn't perfect but I cant' seem to grasp how it's the crap fest everyone makes it out to be. TSW should also be appreciated more.
Love how those that like full loot pvp talk about that sub genre as if it is the pinnacle of mmo games rather than an offshoot of battlefield 3 and most are dull twitch feasts played by guys with the beer gut and social attitude of "comic book guy" from the Simpsons. PvE is and always will be where most play...that's cause it's better...simple that.

Scarlet Blade is really horrible. I wouldn't put it on a Top 100.

GW2 is by far the best mmo ive played. fun combat, structured pvp is not about gear, and the leveling/exploring is the best i have ever experienced by far. plus it has jumping puzzles which are awesome :P
only thing that i dont like is, WvW = Blob-Wars, this game needs full collision detection. so ppl cannot hug eachother and squeeze into 1 square-foot area. spamming 111111 while the blob steamrolls things.
SWTOR, there wasnt one single thing i didnt like about this game. questing was for once interesting, with voiced over quests where you reply. the pvp was awesome. huttball is the most fun arena-design and game-type ever. instances were the most fun 5-man dungeons i've ever played.
yes, the world pvp was broken from a technical point of view, but thats about the only thing bad i can find about the game before it went pseudo-F2P which is a joke... things like 3 instances or 3 BGs per week and no trading... and such.... thats not F2P, that is mocking us right in our faces.
NWO: combat is the most fun and exciting combat i've played. (tera was too precise it was annoying). i love the armor/weapon style, not over the top like WoW/GW2, i like that.
the foundry is very fun. but lacks a lot of options thus limiting your creativity. added in the future hopefully.
PvP combat is good, but increadibly imbalanced and missing a lot of crucial mechanics such as diminishing returns. rogues often instakill people, wizards often perma-stun you to death, and poor GWFs make you feel sorry for them. not to mention whoever has the $$-mount has a huge advantage.
questing is such a drag! very boring and irritating. back and forth, back and forth. GW2 spoiled me.
and of course, many-many-many-way-too-many annoying bugs. hopefully fixed.
and just a heads-up, the shop is a lot more expensive than your average mmo shop.
(fyi, mmo's i've played: WoW, WAR<3, Aion, SWTOR, Tera, GW2, AoW, NWO)
Originally posted by marz.at.play Guild Wars 2 failed so much for original Guild Wars players especially in PvP as ArenaNet catered to the masses instead of their loyal fanbase. In the end I think they shot themselves in the foot. It's still a great MMO but not what most had hoped for regardless of updates. 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.
So true about GW 2. I was so happy I'm coming back to Tyria, but after couple months, after Karkas, basicly useles island, and after Fractals, where you go the same stuff again and again (which is very WoW like) I couldnt stand it anymore. Its a great game with a great world, but GW 1 was so much more. But I've heard they have expansion coming, might change few things.
