    When I see Massively's explanation for picking SWTOR it makes me want to vomit to be honest:

    RIFT launched as a staff favorite in March, but it's both the freshness of SWTOR's launch and the fact that MMO fans have been going nuts over this game for years that combine to make this our Game of the Year.

    If you want to pick a game game of the year, ok do it, but give some solid reasons as to why.  This is basically just saying - "SWTOR had the most hype and it's fresh, so we picked it".  Absolutely pathetic.

    I agree. And, that's a total of 4 awards for ToR so far. Not bad for a trash game right? :-)

    No not bad at all but hardly surprising - people eat up mediocrity on a regular basis if they are told it's fine cuisine.

    Who gives a shite one way or another? I like TOR but these awards are a dime a dozen. I'll admit...Distopia has a good point about some people judging a game as rubbish in less than an hour but almost 3 weeks of game time (counting the early release) is somehow not enough for others to rate it as game of the year. That aside ..I'll say again..who frakking cares? Even if they are paid off...which I doubt..no site review or crappy reward should be the sole reason you buy a game anyway. Play what you like and be done with the bullshit.

    No doubt. Folks are clamoring for boring sandboxes till this very day. Lets plant another row of corn Owen....what a great game woo hoo!!!!!! Farmville has nothing on us....we pay 15 bucks a month.

     

    I am digging on TOR. 5 Characters now are lvl 10 or higher. I am glad it is getting recognition.

    Asking Devs to make AAA sandbox titles is like trying to get fine dining on a McDonalds dollar menu budget.

    And there is always one who thinks he is better than everyone else because of his taste in a video game. I am pretty sure what you eat up thinking 'hey fine cuisine' is just mediocre for someone else. Don't be under an illussion that you are better because you are not.

    Usually whne i dislike a game and it gets awards and positive ratings i grumble a lot and cry myself to sleep and tell myself that these people are getting paid for giving high ratings. It makes me feel a lot better.

    But if i like the game..well no such scenario exists and all reviews are fair and honest.

    hmm i would think game of the year would mean you would have been around for most of the year but i guess not lol.

     

    they did give the best launch award to RIft though, wonder how many Swtor fans screamed about that lol.

    Another Award TOR does not deserve for this year... Don't understand why websites jump the gun like this I mean give it more then 2 weeks before giving an award to a new MMO. 

     

    Now I have not played RIFT or TOR (nore will I ever) but RIFT should have gotten it and save next years for TOR. I'm at a loss for words.

    This is why I dislike a lot of the forumbase. 

    "I haven't played X nor Y mmo, but X deserves an award over Y."

    Really?

    .. But in a good way.

    Yes really the free month isn't even up so they are cleary one sided with their pick. I mean give TOR best new MMO but not GoTY.

    And automatically giving it to Rift is the definition of one sided.

    I don't recall any other MMO released last year worth mentioning.

    If you have to preface your award with something like this, it should be sending alarm bells ringing through your head. They knew giving SWTOR the GOTY award was a joke, and yet they still did it.

    This right here. 

    Massively just lost a massive number of credibility points with me.
