    I voted for ESO. Everything else lacks in to many areas. I was on GW2 before I came to back ESO (played it in alpha, etc) but i'm glad I moved on from that heap. 

    O, and with this latest news that ESO is coming out with Arena and Battlegrounds I feel its a wrap for everything else.

    Every popular mmo has its merits so this discussion is not fruitful at all. Just another waste of seconds looking at a pointless thread.
    Looking was such a waste that you wasted even more time replying!

    Yea diehard fanbois usually just stick to their game's forums only.  Here you have a mixture of people who play more then 1 mmo and are able to determine what a good quality is and not just the only mmo they every played and never quit playing.  If ESO is the only game I ever played then I would swear its the best in the world.  But if I have played over 10 mmorpg's and then claim  ESO is the best it is actually saying something.
    You don't make much sense answering to my post with this "fanboi" crap. "diehard fanbois" who "stick to their game's forums" aren't any more representative of the global MMORPG player base than the people posting here.
    Some MMORPG developers have learned the hard way that to cater to that kind of posters who crusade here on MMORPG.com forums for "old school" and tedious gameplay is a sure recipe for failure.
    So basically you are saying people who visit this forum are ignorant bafoons who don't vote for WOW.  And I was saying you get real votes here without the fanbois because they usually just stick to their own forums without looking at forums like mmorpg.com.   I don't see how that was so confusing.

    Not really an MMO but since trying Warframe I would have likely voted for it.  I have no idea their plans but I hope to see Warframe someday have missions with 10, 20 or more people in them.  Would be fun, imho.
    It is a MMOTPS by this site's classification. But the point is that even if people don't classify it as such, it is competing with MMOs.

    In fact, those who abandoned MMOs (or MMORPGs) are probably playing other type of online games. This is another case that if the game is good (for Zoe in this case, subjectively), do people care if it is a MMO or not?

    The "poll" should have also had a "None of the above". I don't think ANY mmo is worth voting for.

    So basically you don't like mmorpg's and since you don't like them then why the heck are you on mmorpg.com right now on the forums of people who enjoy and play mmorpgs?  Lets all go to a knitting forum and tell how much we hate knitting then expect people to respond to our superior intelligence.

    Actually, there's a lot of truth to this.

    I see alot of people in this thread that post A LOT on the forums (myself included). Posting that much means that you probably aren't playing too much. Most players rarely visit forums (official or fan-forums) and rarer still do they post.

    We are the talking heads for the silent masses.

    ESO. Seriously massive world, buttloads of content, good crafting and server is bursting with players across all levels.

    Still playing WoW after all these years, though that's probably a better indication of what's been released in the last decade rather than my personal tastes. Still disturbed by the missed opportunities of TOR and ESO. EVE is a game I should love, on paper, but ultimately puts me to sleep within fifteen minutes of a session, like clock work.

    Played them all. Some were better some were worse but I got bored of all of them eventually and left never feeling the urge to come back. Except WoW. Every new expansion invariably pulls me back in for 2-4 months of enjoyable leveling, dungeoning and then raiding. 

    ESO? Good stories, pretty graphics. Terrible animations, unrewarding rewards. And now it seems to be slowly heading in the direction of 'lets make this so painfully riddled with RNG/grind, people will buy it off the cash shop'.

    Nope. I'm saying that most of the people posting here aren't representative of the vast majority of MMORPG players, most of which actually never post here and don't even know this site exists. I never said they were "bafoons" (I guess you meant "buffoon", right?), I just said their opinions are of a minority.

    Sorry if I strongly disagree with that.
    Not only many are so deeply stuck in "old school" nostalgia that they wouldn't acknowledge a modern game could be good even if their lives depended on it, but also as for any type of entertainment, opinions are like assholes, everybody has one...
    Actually, your post is funny... because it describes exactly the opposite of what happens here on these forums with those "seasoned players" which I like to name "bitter vets".

    While I agree with your point to an extent, I'd like to point out that I am a self admitted "Bitter Vet" and prefer the nostalgic "good ole days" of MMORPGs. Doesn't mean I can't get out of my own way and acknowledge decent ones now. I rather enjoyed my time in FF14, GW2, SWTOR, To some extent MoP WoW, and currently ESO Although that one isn't all that great. But it's not terrible at least. I played Wildstar in hopes it would be an enjoyable experience. That one was terrible.

    Point is, I am very willing to look at any new MORPG and weigh it out for it's own quality. If it's a good game, I'll gladly acknowledge that. Just because people like me have a preference that is currently not being met, doesn't mean we all shut ourselves off to other possibilities.

    I think the votes prove both our points quite well.  You can see the top games are actually getting a lot of votes and there is also the "other" votes who consist of a lot of those players who cant get over the old days.  Yes I'm sure I missed some of the unpopular favorites but we also see people voicing themselves as nothing is worthy of my vote.  Which we all know is bullcrap.

    No idea why you people hate ArcheAge so mutch.

    To me it has still best grafix, works like a charm, and it has omfg everything.
    Housing and land ownage, borderless huge world, underwaterworld, endless crafting and questing and PvP'ing, raiding, fighting, fishing, growing, pets, mounts, flowers.
    I even have a skateboard and going towards my car :)
    You can fly Gliders, be a good or a bad charackter.
    It has a huge metagame due to politics, alliances, brotherhoods.
    There is even the church of RNGesus and its followers, so there is even ingame cults.
    Claim a Castle in a mass siege, or lose one.
    Make your guild a powerhouse, a farmers heaven, a RP tea-drinker carebear central - up2u ^^

    The only downer is, its not for the weak.
    Nontheless, even a squishy mind can survive in save zones.
    There is risk and lose and win and whine, hate, rage, crying, unity, community, there is the people.

    All the games you mention above have totally no freedom or maps full of zoning.
    There is no open world, no real second live.
    In ArcheAge you have more players on the map, then the client can render, whats 150 atm i think.

    We have Galleons, Tradeships, Fishingboats and Clippers, full equipable/twinkable, same with our pets, mounts, houses, lands and toons ofc.

    You all know, we can creststamp a lot of items in, on and around our houses/lands, giving it endless possibilities to style your character, your house, your ships and whatnot.

    Everything in the game can be bought by golds.
    We have the f2p, p2w, subscribtion, griefers and donators, all is here and you can manage to get  everything in the game for free.
    When you are on the sea, you never saw a more beautiful sunraise in any game, else tell me wich.

    I think you are all to squishy minded to stand in the archeaic age xD
    Why else would you hate it so mutch ?

    Archeage is the best game we have atm.
    It will be the best MMORPG until Star Citizen is going to come together.

    peace \m/

    Maybe this thread will answer your question.  And please take note that out of 150 votes only 4 people said the game was being managed properly.   No matter how great the game is if the management is horrible then the game is just not worth playing.  Notice 83 people said the game itself is great and I as well say that game is great.  But it was horribly messed up in the worse possible way by its developers.

    FF14. Group content with raids that test skill and coordination. It has a lot of non combat content as well. I would prefer a bit more sandbox then it offers but it is the best MMO on the market atm.
