Bill, about the shameless rip-offs of IP. There is a book by Max Brooks called World War Z.... http://www.amazon.co.uk/World-War-Z-Max-Brooks/dp/0715637037 Maybe DayZ stole a thing or two out of here, e.g. The name and zombie stuff? it was written in 2006 BTW.

Please, don't compare War Z with a good book like WWZ, in fact, the upcoming movie this summer featuring Brad Pitt is also likely to embarrass the title.
"Winning" at EVE Online since 2006!
In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

Originally posted by Sasami Seriously you Bill even played WarZ lately? If bad launch is requirement how about Neverwinter? Also Scarlet Blade is better than average asian MMO which isn't much to say. Your bashing sounds typical american crap where part nudity is worst than people getting shotted.
Yep, sounds like typical "American" crap... oh wait, perhaps the pot should be careful calling the kettle black.
But you are correct, we are more afraid of nudity than killing stuff, might explain all guns we have around here I suppose.
I don't like pornography, but I play Scarlet blade because I love the way the game looks, the scifi-fantasy mix. The game itself is a bit boring, mainly because of auto moving, but I definitely ain't playing it for the naked women.
As far as other games, I haven't played them, so I can't tell...
And yes, it's hypocrisy to advertise the game and then to spit on it...
Thas bullshit... this guy says scarlet blade is so bad because of its hentai theme. The game is great but he dont like hentai theme so its garbage... what a stupid review.
Step in the arena and break the wall down
Breathing a sigh of relief that WorldAlpha didn't make the list!
Thanks,MikeWorking on Social Strategy MMORTS (now Launched!) http://www.worldalpha.com
Scarlet Blade did not belong on that list.
It was bug free, it had enough content to level on. Graphics were good, everything worked.
You guys didn't like the T&A so it's a crap game? How many times has a game been sold on T&A that wasn't there? These guys delivered. You need to get down off that white horse after all the money you were happy to take for the full page advertisements. Makes you look bad.
I almost, almost want to try Scarlet blade juste for the lolz after watching this video:

This list apparently doesn't take into account a number of categories that should be added. Categories such as - Games with the biggest budget yet failed - Example: I'd put a failed MMORPG with a 300million dollar budget, A hard to screw up pre-arranged title, and enough resources at its disposal to make any company jealous before any of the titles you listed above.

There are well over 500 thousand gamers who would very much disagree with all of you about SWTOR. It most definitely does not deserve a spot on the worst MMO list, but then again, I'm sure you're the same kind of gamer that would put WoW on there too.
I highly doubt MMORPG.com hand picks the ads. It is most likely handled through an ad agency that MMORPG.com has a partnership with.
That being said...even if MMORPG.com does pick the ads...who cares? They're a business, not a moral compass for the gaming universe.
Originally posted by kedara I have played these games. These games are ULTRA fun compared to: Rift, WoW, DayZ, and Dr. Sugimoto's Lecherous Treatment. All of the games I just mentioned are of the same quality and depth as one another. (Which is to say they are all of poor quality and have no depth.) Oh, and just incase you were praying for Dragons Prophet, it is another WoW clone. (CLONE as in carbon copy.)
I wish that was true, but WoW is infinitely more entertaining.
Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2, ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...

GW2 has some good points, but if you get stuck on a dead server with very few players. It is now getting to the point where I can go several days without any other guild members online!
Years ago, the term pixel perfect was coined, which means you have to do EVERYTHING exactly right or FAIL. Game makers of today seem to have forgotten this concept, especially when you enter a dungeon in GW2. Giving the monsters in dungeons super powers and millions of hit points is pathetic, instead give us more content!
Some of the pve content becomes unplayable, because it is just too dam hard, and the rest is too easy, thus boring!
That's my rant over. I must say I still play GW2, but sadly it is coming to and end, as I am close to getting my 8th char to lvl 80 (one of each class), and when I do, I feel I will lose interest in the game because of the difficulty in solo play!
What a joke of a reason to put Scarlet Blade as the number two worst game of 2013, even stating that if it was a "masterpiece" in various areas you'd still put it up there just because of their design decision. As far as I'm concerned you have zero credibility as a reviewer (if you are one) because of that extremely flawed logic.
Great so lets assume a game revolutionizes various aspects of MMOs, changes lots of things and is generally a vast improvement over what we've had in the past. If it presents itself in the way Scarlet Blade did, apparently it will nearly be THE worst game of the year (so far) to you. I don't even have words to describe how irrational that is. You don't like the way the game is presented, fantastic, then don't support it and don't recommend it to anyone but to say it is better or worse than other games without having even PLAYED it? Really? And even if you did it wouldn't even matter because you already stated it would have had zero affect on your opinion of how "good" the game is.
Scarlet Blade does none of the things mentioned above, it doesn't revolutionize anything (not that it has to) or change anything for the better. To me it's a crappy, boring, pretty dull and generic game. The only thing I can say I enjoyed about it were the graphics, mostly from spell effects, and you don't get all too many. At least I can say why it's a crappy game instead of making up some morality bullshit as an excuse for not playing it while still insisting it's one of the worst games just because I disagree with their approach.

Edited to add: Personally, I would rate Scarlet Blade the worst MMO game I've played this year, but the only others were GW2, Aion, Age of Conan and The Secret World.
