    Okay, rant over.  Commence with the ever-cool WoW basing.  lol

     

    I It's VERY easy for someone to say that WOW is the worse game they ever played especially if they are someone who was a fan of games like Ultima Online or Vanilla SWG. Not saying that's me by any means but I understand their POV.

     

    Even if you don't care for the way WoW is designed, calling it a bad game is a bit of a stretch. I don't like EVE Online at all, but I'd never call it a bad game.

    It's actually even less forgivable for someone who started MMORPGs with UO or "Vanilla" SWG, because it means they have quite a bit of experience with those games. Therefore them saying Wow is the worst game ever is even more silly and shows only one thing - they have a personal, irrational hatred for that game, which doesn't have any realistic basis.

    Rebel said it perfectly - it's popular to hate specific games on this forum, totally ignoring what really bad games are all about. WoW is one of those "popular to hate to be among the kewl guys" game.

    Let's be clear though...

    - If a guy posts "WoW is a bad game I didn't like", I'm like "okay, you just didn't like it, to each his own". I'm perfectly fine with that.

    - If a guy posts "WoW is the worst MMORPG ever", then I'm like "either you're full of it and just mindlessly bashing the game, or you never experienced a really bad game, with poor graphics, poor programming, poor animations, poor performance, etc...", and I stop taking anything that guy posts ever remotely seriously.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    So if you notice that I'm no longer answering your nonsense, stop trying... because you just joined my block list.

    When you've seen the innovation and amazing design that the MMO genre is capable of, seeing something so boring, safe, and yet at the same time flawed as WoW, it's easy to call it the worst you've played.

    If you judge by the time it took to uninstall a game

    RIFT - 2 hours

    EVE - 1 day

    Dragon's prophet - 1 day

    Allods online - 2 days

    Path of Exile - 1 week

    Granado Espado - 1 week

    I still have guild wars 2 installed. Mainly because I feel bad for spending 60 bucks on it, so I occasionally log in and see if I can tolerate playing it this time. The worst game that I have paid full price for is GW2 by a long shot. The worst random F2P game that I have just downloaded to see if I like it, is Dragon's Prophet, by a long shot.

    It is kind of hard to pick one out of all the bad mmos i have played.

    Everquest 2

    Aion

    APB

    Perpetuum

    countless asian f2p games

     

    That is in no particular order

    Heh. It's funny if I think about it.

    I have vague memories of quitting an MMO and thinking "That was the worst game I ever played". But I'll be damned if I can recall the title. Not that I'm exerting myself to do so.

    That was my thought as well. If people were calling WOW a failure then you could say they were wrong since that is a statement that can be proven wrong with facts. But someone saying that it's the worse MMO they ever played? How can anyone say that a person is wrong with their likes and dislikes?

    Currently Playing: Star Wars The Old Republic

    Quickest uninstall ever was DDO - was so hyped being and old growing up on dungeons and dragons table top. 

     

    second would be warhammer online - it was ugly, clunky, and not very fun on any level at launch.

    last would be guild wars 2. I enjoyed my first 3 or 4 days playing it and then i hit thispoint where i felt like "that's it" . The abilities, weapon based, spells didn't feel right and you had zero character progression. It wasn't bad, just wasn't there for me in the long run.

    definace is up there too, but i think that game could be good.

    Exactly right.

    In fact, let me restate MY likes and dislikes, that I have played

    Worst MMO ever - UO

    second worst MMO - EQ

    best MMO - Diablo 3 .. not a true mmo, but close enough

    second best - WoW

    I would love to see if someone will try to tell how my PERSONAL preferences are wrong.

    Bad combat, boring clicking on rocks to improve skills, lots of griefing, tank mage, housing ghetto ....

    Those are my reasons to think that UO is the worse MMO i have played. Personally opinions, of course.
