[Column] General: The Worst MMOs of 2013... So Far



  • modusmodus Unknown, ONPosts: 69Member Uncommon
    I do not see how anyone could consider putting Age of Wushu up on this list.   I'm suggesting those people play single player games and stop complaining about MMOs.  Only way you could consider it bad is if you didn't interact with a guild or other players.

    Scarlet Blade didn't offer anything new combat-wise but the story and dialogues were 10 times as entertaining as those of a certain AAA mmo which is going to be released soon. If you had at least put it in there because of the pvp, which could be described as joke at best. But giving it rank 2 of the worst mmos this year because of its hentai looks.. really? What kind of reviewers are you?

    I agree with mussolini.


    I did not play any of the games that were listed, but was struck by your comments about SB.  It seems to be more than a bit shallow to ding a game not because of its play-style and content but rather because of:


     "...its audacious attempt at gaining players by appealing to the hentai-lover in us all... if there is a such a thing." 


    I am also almost offended that you would put a game on the Worst list even though you never played it, your words Bill:


    "For all I know, Scarlet Blade may be one of the best free MMOs to come out in recent years. But I’ll never really find out..."


    I actually check out reviews to assist me in choosing games to play, and dinging a game you refuse to play is intellectually dishonest. If you wanted to post a review blasting the game because of your personal or religious beliefs, I can respect that, but what you did here with SB was to apply a ridiculous PC standard and trash a game you refuse to play.

    I agree with this list 100 percentile.

    Bill you say Scarlet Blade could be the best F2P mmo of the year but you will never try it because of the softcore theme. Well surely it shouldnt be included in the 5 worst mmo of the year based on personal opinion of its softcore subject. A review should not be biased about theme, if your going to include it on the list state the mmo reasons why it sucks. Turning players away from what you say could be the Best F2P MMO game of the year for those reasons listed is bad especially when this site promoted the game so much.

    id say its a 13 way tie for last.

    a strawberry (the foundry) wrapped in poop, still tastes like poop.

    LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
    I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

  • CountessEllaCountessElla Wartrace, TNPosts: 1Member

    I agree with DKO and Scarlet Blade being on the list; however, I think they should switch places... DKO is the most boring thing I've ever played. I never got to level cap in closed beta or the stress test because of that. I just didn't even bother downloading the patches for open beta...


    Scarlet Blade is fun for a little while, then it gets boring. I played Restricted Alpha, Early Access Closed Beta, Closed Beta, and Open Beta. I guess that is where I lost interest? Really, though, not even the new content they added in this last week could keep me interested.

    List is bous.


    Darkfall: Unholy Wars is not on it?

    Help get Camelot Unchained made, a old-school MMORPG, with no hand holding!

    So far all the mmos of 2013 are bad. When you think about it does it really matter which ones are the worst ?
  • CyclopsSlayerCyclopsSlayer Minneapolis, MNPosts: 532Member Uncommon

    Played Wizardry back on my Apple ][ and had such hopes for this. I gave it a few hours one day, and deleted it afterwards. Such trashing of a classic IP.

    Not played the rest, but yeah, cannot dispute the list. Utter trash.


    Truly sad part, is if you had made it a Worst 10, you could have overlapped the Top list of last week. As the best of that is still very meh...

    lol I was thinking the same thing.

    Please cease existence.

    Neverwinter most definitely should be there.  If only from the crowd of D&D fans since that game is an abomination for those D&D fans that followed the game since launch.  Of which most don't even post on the forums anymore and how there was so much chargebacks that PWE made a statement.

    The game might be a really good F2P game but for the D&D fans it is a desecration of the beloved IP. 

    Ironic how they made a statement that it's for D&D fans when it clearly is not and is for the generic MMO powergamer crowd.

    Big DnD fan here and personally love Neverwinter. Its a far better game than DDO ever was. What works well with pen and paper doesn't always work well in a video game.

    Bill I really enjoyed this. I wish MMORPG would do more reviews like this to kind of show gamers on this site what to avoid and what too try out. It's hard to know, because we are fed on a constant basic how every MMO is a second coming of jesus when it isn't. I see to many sites always telling players on a constant basis how great all these games are. Would be nice to have a column that shows the terrible ones. Great Job On this one bill.
  • RenoakuRenoaku Posts: 1,421Member Uncommon

    Might look foward to adding to the list.

    1. Age OF Wushu.

    2. NeverWinter The D&D Game.

    I'm super bored and going to go download DK online.. *chuckle*
  • RolleZRolleZ FalkenbergPosts: 40Member Uncommon
    Add Defiance to the list.
  • BanquettoBanquetto CityPosts: 1,037Member Uncommon

    Very happy to say I've only played one of those five games.

    And not for very long.

    And that there's a good reason it's on a "Worst Of" list...


  • ScotScot UKPosts: 6,332Member Rare

    They had to put Scarlet Blade in, it is this years politically correct cause in the gaming world. The fact they had not reviewed it yet? Hey what does that matter when you think you are being socially conscious?

    Not actually sure why we are getting this list other than to confirm that likes to pick on the little guy. I am not exactly a F2P fanboy myself, but they are just making up a list of cheaply funded games and saying 'yeah they are cheap'. What exactly is that telling us we did not know before?

    You received 25 Agrees. You're posting some good content. Great!

    There is a lot of MMO's that could on on both lists I believe. I think the two list that were presented were good lists. SWTOR isn't that bad and doesn't belong on the worst list. SWTOR is a pretty good game now.
  • Hordequester8Hordequester8 Fort Wayne, INPosts: 54Member

    Not sure why people keep saying Neverwinter should be up here..I could see it being disappointing in some aspects but Worst? It's a decent game with solid functionality and the people calling it Pay to Win have obviously not actually played it as it most certainly isn't. So tired of people labeling every Free to Play game as Pay to Win. If you haven't played it for a significant amount of time, shut up.


    I don't even like the game all that much but...come on. The foundry system in that game dwarfs pretty much every game in the market right now that even attempts at a similar system..including STO (their former game with a Foundry system). That alone should keep it off the list even if it were crappy in every other respect.

    Good article.

    Telling us what sucks and why is just as important as telling us what doesn't.

    Translation: They didn't do what I wanted them to do.

    If you get bored and you just stay in the game for the tits and asses you have a problem. If you want  to see real asses and boobs watch porn movies.


  • RzepRzep warsawPosts: 767Member Uncommon
    I still say that the worst thing about WarZ is the main guy behind it and the lies that were put on the Steam store page. The game itself is obviously unfinished, but not too bad. Is it better or worse than DayZ? I don't know the games feel different to me.
