Have to agree with SWTOR part. They do improve it.
I think this list is correct.

^ Sure does get the fanboys worked up, don't it?
Not to be picky but GW2 was the most terrible MMO came out ever. There's not enough incentive to keep you interested in login back after a few days of playing. The combat system is not ok even though I like action RPG style of gameplay, yet it failed miserably in that department.
They took away the fun in class-based RPG with turning every class into a DPS class. Leaving those who enjoy playing a healer class out of the game. And they completely destroyed the meaning of having an end-game. So you level a class to 80 by taking part in events and when you get to max level, nothing changes.
So far I'm enjoying the heck out of Neverwinter it's brilliant and they succeed in bringing a top notch MMO-ARPG that I'd want to play and it is more rewarding than GW2.
And Age of Wushu is just a laugh.
SWTOR is an awesome game, it truly is and they revolutionized the storytelling mechanics of MMORPGs. I truly loved the experience, the thing is you don't have enough content when you get to end-game - or rather was since I haven't check back since the launch of the expansion, so I have no idea how are they planing to address that, for a game that plays a lot like WoW the logical course is releasing content patch every few months to keep people interested.
TSW is quite great, EVE is awesome and I don't care much for the rest.
Reading a list of Mmo's for 'Best of 2013' Interesting...
Reading all the posts of raging fans concerning where they believe their game should be....priceless.
Can't wait for the 'Worst of 2013' list. Should be even better.
Well thats your opinion and you are entitled to it no matter how bad your opinion is.
1st. Theres all knind of MMO's out there but only few arew orth the subscriptions of players and the population of those should tell u who is #1 WOW
now all the others r secondary but I would put EVE before the rest even though I dont care for gankers this one is indeed for the mature player by far best game play out there the best lookin game out there a massive world all put together on 1 server what other company has accomplished so much!
I agree with those that say Rift is better than SWTOR in fact SWTOR isnt in a top 20 list for me
Funcom no thanks what more does 1 need to say about them.
all the rest to me is just another piece of meat thrown out there to haggle over nothing really worth the time of day
Originally posted by BillMurphy Man, if you guys like arguing about this one... I can't wait to see your reaction to next week's "Worst of 2013... So Far" list.
I already have my popcorn for the show! When I want information I come to this site, but when I want entertained by the masses....I come to this site!!
The hysterical and very entertaining comments to these types of opinionated yet insightful articles should require a cover charge to read!
I dont see how you could of if this is the list you came up with. The secret world game engine is worst then everquest 2. The pvp is the secret world is terrible, any one in the game will tell you that. There is no crafting system worth anything, and theres no economy to speak of at all. As far as putting any game from perfect world on a best of list page is terrible. You are misleading a bunch of people to waste their money. All perfect world games are just a money trap, and are all broken. Most things from china are but........ Terrible list you made, if that is your honest list, then you obviously dont game at all.

Please put forward your list of Best mmos of 2013 so far........ and yes he did play all those games...it is his job to do so. duh!!
If we remove all the MMOS that you mentioned what else is left to add to the list? lol

I've went back to SWTOR and I'm having an amazing time in game. Lots of peeps to play with, the customization they added is great and it isn't dependent on the cash shop (if you subscribe). I'm happy it made the list.
I'm not surprised by RIFT not making this list. Wouldn't be surprised to see it and WoW on the "Worst of" list. Can't wait to see the comments on that post...lol.
Way to go making a controversial list and stirring up the community. I've really enjoyed reading this thread, laughs by the dozens.
The purpose of this post is to be controversial to generate posts and views.
You all got served.
A better list I think would be:
Originally posted by BillMurphy Rift might make the end of year list we're aiming to do in November (prior to the true "Awards" in December), if the F2P turns it around. But Storm Legion was a let down and it's been a ghost town for months. Opinions folks, we all can haz them.
For clarity sake, I don't really play RIFT anymore as I struggled finding a great end-game guild that had a raiding schedule that worked for my life. So this isn't "fanboi" raving. This is just a sanity check for your nonsense.
There's a difference between an opinion and BS and the BS factor in here just went through the roof. SL was a "let down"? Seriously? In what way?
Storm Legion was the most massive expansion for a game outside of GW1s "expansions" which were fully self-contained brand new games.
Here are 20 things off the top of my head RIFT SL expanded upon or added brand new:
1. Multiple new ways to earn XP (10 different ways now)
2. New raids
3. New dungeons (including additional chronicles)
4. TRIPLED the size of the gaming world
5. New souls
6. New currencies
7. A few new types of dynamic content
8. Massive crafting overhaul (even allow for BiS gear to be *crafted*) and large level cap raise in crafting
9. New Planar Attunement XP with dozens of new skills and ways to further customize your character's build
10. A massive overhaul to factions (can be multi-faction guilds, parties, LFG, dungeon finder, dynamic content, etc.)
11. New gear types that can be upgraded
12. TWO new gear slots
13. Player housing that includes several THOUSAND items (and players can even vote on which player housing is the best)
14. Added hundreds of new achievements
15. Massive new set of rifts including many Great Hunt lures; hell they even tied in to Defiance and cross-universed rifts there so Hellbugs are in RIFT
16. New skills
17. Massive overhaul to every soul (now 40 souls)
18. New mounts and fluff content (titles, pets)
19. A 10-level cap increase
20. New puzzles and hundreds of new artifacts
Plus the lottery app is just the best. I keep using that even though I'm not active in the game anymore. Play the mobile app to earn me hundreds of gold a week? Yes, please. Log in once every two weeks, auction off all the artifacts I've "won", etc.
Show me an expansion to any other game that did more?
Originally posted by Kuro1n Wow how the fuck can you list GW2 over EVE? A game that has been getting free expansions for the last 10 years! A userbase that has been growing since day one. EVE number 1 and I dont even play that game anymore. Either MMORPG is getting paid to put GW2 there or bill is a fanboy of GW2, either way it's shit.
lol Maybe they liked the game better. EVE is incredibly boring to me, personally.
And for those saying WoW should be #1, it doesn't deserve it, not for 2012 or 2013, because it sucks now.
My list would have looked like:
Originally posted by ShakyMo How much did ea pay you to put a game from 2011, that sucks, on a best of 2013 list? Also eve, gw2 & tsw aren't from 2013 either.
In my opinion.... ANY list that this website makes up will undoubtedly be a list of which MMO Publisher paid them the most money vs. who paid the least or none at all.
Sorry MMORPG.com Staff... but it's blatantly obvious you have been "bought and paid for". Sorry but that's how I see it.
Originally posted by botrytis Originally posted by mindw0rk Shitty list, as always on mmorpg.com. Those are true winners: 1. EVE Online (always was and still ahead of its time. The only true sandbox, MMORPG as it should be). 2. TSW (the best MMORPG in many departments: story, characters, setting, development, graphics, atmosphere, quests) 3. WoW (ultimate theme park, has everything for everyone) 4. Age of Wushu (most unique MMORPG with best PvP system in ages. Amazing game overal, only weak point is PvE) 5. Tie between TERA, AoC, Vanguard and LoTRO Neverwinter is disaster and doesnt deserve to be in top 10. SWToR is boring bland clone, same as RIFT. GW2... boring and disappointing.
EVE should not be number one and there are really not new players playing it - they are the same people that are obsessed with the game.
I just started playing it last week having never tried it before and the Rookie Help channel has almost 5k people in it. It definitely attracts a lot of new people not just vets.
