Since when have games been awarded best of show for their ideas? Because that's what EQNext is right now for the most part, a big set of ideas on paper. Sure there have been a couple tech demos to show - but there is nothing that is completed to a point where we can even know if everything is going to work the way they want it to, or turn out how they say. It's a bunch of PLANS, IDEAS, GOALS. Hell if that's all it takes to win a best of show, Xsyon should have won it a few years back with it's 8 page long list of features the game was going to have that were LITERALLY unbelievable, but what's the difference with this? There is no difference - it's a big company making big promises before much development has taken place. You all have never seen that before? Because it sure seems like it.
As the title of this thread says giving this game in its current state best of show awards, which 2 big name mmo sites including this one did, is like awarding a scientist with the smoothest tongue and fancy theories of science the Nobel Prize - but who hasn't actually produced the results or tested his ideas. It's ridiculous to me, and it's sad as well seeing how many people just eat up the marketing candy like there's no tomorrow and claim it's the second coming. And you know what? Maybe it will be incredible. But at this point in development, NO GAME should ever win an award like this one got.
